Description:

1968 Buick Electra

UP FOR SALE IS A BARN-PRESERVED '68 BUICK 4 DOOR IT WAS MY GRANDPARENTS BUICK AND THEY PASSED AWAY BACK IN '04 AND '06. I HAVE GONE THROUGH THE DMV NIGHTMARE ON RETITLING ALREADY AND NOW HAVE A NEW CALIFORINA TITLE, ISSUED IN MY NAME ONLY.....SO NO PAPERWORK HEADACHES WITH THIS ONE.
WE SUFFERED A HOUSEFIRE WHICH DESTROYED ALL THE RECORDS ON THIS CAR, WHICH SUCKS BECAUSE IT'S A 1-OWNER VEHICLE WITH TONS OF SERVICE RECORDS AND RECEIPTS WERE LOST. I KNOW LIKELY STORY, BUT THAT'S THE PROOVABLE REALITY THAT IS AN UNFORTUNATE REALITY THAT IS THE ONLY REASON I'M SELLING THE CAR AT ALL. ....AND THAT'S THE LEGIT STORY THAT COMES ALONG WITH THE BUICK.(MY GRANDPA WAS REALLY CONSISTANT WITH KEEPING RECORDS, AS HE OWNED 3 GAS STATIONS IN THE 50'S AND 60'S AND I REMEMBER THE CONVERSTION WITH HIM WHEN HE TOLD ME ABOUT HAVING THE ENGINE BROUGHT TO A MACHINE SHOP TO HAVE IT CUT AND REBUILT. YOU'LL SEE IT IF YOU DECIDE TO TEAR INTO THIS MILL)
I CLEANED OFF ONE HALF OF THE CAR WITH SOE SOAP & WATER AND A NICE SOFT NEW RAG TO SHOW WHAT IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE. THE OTHER HALF YOU GET TO DO YOURSELF (THAT'S PART OF THE FUN PART THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO ROB MY BUYER OF)
THE ENTIRE PASSENGER SIDE OF THE CAR ISN'T PHOTOGRAPHICAL, AND IS IN STRIGHT SHAPE.MAN I LOVE THIS CAR! THE ELECTRIC(!!) FRONT BENCH SEAT HAS A CIGARETTE LIGHTER (AND MY GRAND PARENTS DIDN'T SMOKE SO THOSE RESISTOR LEMENTS SHOULD LOOK LIKE NEW AND UNUSED)
225 COMES WITH.....***ALL THE BRIGHT WORK!!! ALL CHROME IS PRESENT! NO ENDLESS SEARCHING FOR CHROME SMALL PARTS!!! HOW MUCH THIS IS THAT GOING TO SAVE?? AND IT'S ALL IN GOOD SHAPE TOO!! THIS IS A GRAGE AND BARN KEPT CAR, ALWAYS HAS BEEN ITS WHOLE LIFE!! THE ONLY BLEM I'VE SEEN ON THE CHROME IS A SUPER LIGHT SURFACE STREAK OF OXIDIZATION THAT WILL COME OFF WITH LOVE!!***
GOOD GLASS
GOOD BODY
GOOD BRIGHT WORK
GOOD SOLID CARDASH ISN'T CRACKED TO HELL, ONE SMALL CRACK, AND THAT'S ITHEADLINER IS CHERRYEQUIPPED WITH A/C
FINNED ALUMINUM FRONT DRUMS (condition of breaking system unknown)
**CAR IS MISSING THE 2-PIECE DRIVELINE, BUT I'VE SOURCED IT IN FLORIDA, FRONT DOOR DELIVERED AND WARRANTED FOR $385.00. IF YOU'RE CLOSE TO THEM ON ACCOUNT OF THE WEATHER (YOU BETTER ORDER THAT THING RIGHT NOW IF YOU WANT TO JUST HIT THE BUY IT NOW AND CLAIM THIS ONE OF A KIND SITUATION "BARD FIND" FOR YOURSELF RIGHT NOW.....IT'LL NEVER COME UP AS THIS ONE IS AGAIN)........SOME SHOPS QUOTED UP TO $900 BECAUSE IT'S MISSING THE CORE FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON.....ALSO MISSING THE TURN KEY IGNIGTION, BUT A REPLACEMENT IS INEXSPENSIVE. THE DOORS AND TRUNK WILL ALL NEED TO BE RE-KEYED**
PAINT IS ABOUT A 5 OUT OF 10. NO RUST, JUST A BUNCH OF PRIMER SPOTS AND IN ONE PART ON THE ROOF THE PAINT HAS LIFTED OFF, BUT YOU GOTTA HAVE IT IN ORDER TO IMPROVE IT.....THIS CAR DESERVES TO BE PAINTED ANYWAY
INTERIOR LOOKS LIKE A SOLID 6 OUT OF 10. EVERYTHING IS THERE BUT IT'S BEEN SITTING. FRONT SEAT TORN, BUT THE BACK SEAT LOOKS FINE.
PULLED THE CARPET FROM THE D.S. FLOOR.
SOME SURFACE RUST, BUT NO ROT.
119731 MILES ON THE CLOCK.
REALISTICALLY, IT MAY TAKE A FEW WEEKS AND $1200 - $1600 AND SOME GOOD FUN BUNCHES OF HOURS DOING YOUR THING TO THIS CAR THIS WINTER TO GET GRANDPAS BUICK SAFELY PUT BACK INTO A DRIVABLE CONDITION (CHANGING FLUIDS, TIRES, DRIVELINE, ADDRESSING THE INTERIOR, WHATEVER IT IS THAT IT NEEDS, AS IT HAS BEEN IN MY SHOP, STATIONARY, PROTECTED FROM THE ELEMENTS FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS. STRIGHT UP. IT HASN'T MOVED AN INCH....... AND SOME NEW KEYS AND TUMBLERS ALL THE WAY AROUND)......BUT YOU CAN HAVE A SUPER NICE CAR FOR THOUSANDS LESS THAN THE OTHER GUY WILL HAVE INTO SOMETHING COMPAIRABLE......LET ALONE ALL THE HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS THAT YOU'LL BE DRIVING WHEN THEY'LL STILL BE WORKING ON IT IN THE SHOP.
