1960 Buick LeSabre 2 Door Hardtop
After 57 years I have decided to part ways with my 1960 Buick LeSabre 2 Door Hardtop. I bought the car new in February 1960 from Nick Allen's Buick in Newport News, Virginia. I was 29 when I bought the car new and now at age 86 I feel it is time to find a new home for this classic icon of the 1960's. This car has not been registered and driven on the road in 25 years. It has not been started in over 20 years. It will require a very extensive restoration to bring it back to life again. The winning bidder will need to have the car towed away at auctions end but I will give plenty of time to arrange shipping. It came equipped with standard 364 V8 nailhead engine and automatic transmission. The car comes with 2 bumper jacks and all 4 hubcaps are still on the car.Unfortunately the weather and elements have taken a toll on the overall car and it has suffered large areas of rust in the floor pans and door jams. Despite all of the work that needs to be done, I feel it is a worthwhile restoration project since the Old Cars Report Price Guide list the car's value up to $38,000 when completely restored. I would imagine that a frame off restoration would be in order to make the car right again. The good news is that it has the factory original matching number 2 barrel carburetor engine and transmission that was installed at the factory. Some Buick enthusiasts have told me the value of the engine and transmission probably exceed the starting price of what I am asking for the entire car. If you would like to see the car in person please email me and I will give directions to my house in Newport News, VA. Overseas buyers are also welcome to bid as I am only 30 miles from the port of Norfolk Va. I have most all chrome pieces in the back seat of the car to make the car complete again. Thanks for looking at my classic Buick which evokes memories of the Batmobile and could be converted to a custom ride of your choice. I do have the original clear Virginia title and a set of keys for the car. Good luck and happy bidding on this NO RESERVE auction!
