1963 Buick Electra 225 2dr Hardtop

HOPE YOU LIKE PICTURES, ecause below we have about 150 to show you !
Why buy from us ? Our feedback speaks for itself and we have some of the very
BEST REPRESENTED vehicles on ebay !! by that I mean we post over 100 pics of
the vehicle. Inside, utside, nde, verywhere !! Ive yet to see anyone else on
ebay put up detailed pics like ours. We dont have alot of fine print blah blah.
Just the important stuff buyers are looking for.
ONLY 6848 of these cars where built, ow many are left ? What are the chances
of seeing one at a local car show or dream cruise ???!!! Slim to none. If you want
RARE / Different and LUXURY, ook No Further !!
this car was at the top of its game back in 63 and GM pulled out all the stops
to make this car Top Dog to potential buyers. In 1963, f you had money or
wanted your neighbors to know you had money, enerally this was one of the
cars to buy. It was also a car GoodFella type guys where known to own and
drive. It was huge and being a 2 door was just a great cruiser. This was Buicks
top of the line rig back in 63 and when you look at all the cool features this
car had inside and out, t gets more impressive.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION: this car Id consider a Barn Find of sorts, ut luckily at
least its an AZ find. Meaning no rot on the car like an eastern car. The car has
been sitting for at least 15 yrs. It spent most of its time outside in the AZ sun
most of its life causing alot of sun damage to the original RED interior . Check
out ALL THE CHROME inside this car and the knobs and controls they used for
things like Vents and AC controls, his car deserves to be restored. As far
as the drivetrain goes, t rolls and steers but the motor needs to be rebuilt
after one day it just died. Not sure how bad the motor is, ts not locked up and
there are no holes I can see in the block, ut the 401 Nailhead needs work
before it will run again. Maybe its even a good time to RESTO MOD it and look
at a more modern drivetrain for this beast. LS1 ? LS6 ? Cummins Turbo Diesel ????
That would be an awesome project when done.
The Positive points: little to no rust or rot mainly on the Az body, ll the original
glass seems to be usable and intact, nd its a great original color combo.
During repaint, hite would be cool... but with a RED INTERIOR, o would BLACK or SILVER !!
Both colors with RED INTERIOR are amazing combos.
Add some 22" wheels and tires, ow can you go wrong !!???
Odometer Shows aprox 61k miles on it, hances are it has rolled over at
least once. Ill have to see what the title says.

OUR 100% feedback speaks for itself - PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR FEEDBACK !!
and many of our feedback are from about 15 cars we sold just this past
year here on EBay. We put more time and effort into our ads making it much
easier for the potential buyers to bid with confidence.
NOT MANY OF THESE cars left with most of its original sheetmetal still like this one.

Pretty sure this body has had at least one paint job, F NOT it has had some repair
to the RR area behind the pass door at one time. I can see evidence of past repair
there. There is also dent in the same area now, etween the door and RR wheel.
The LF fender looks to have been replaced maybe at one time, ou can see the LF
headlight chrome trim is loose and the hood and fender dont line up as well as
stock. It looks obvious when you see the pics below, ut I just wanted to point it
out just in case. Much or most of the OEM trim is still in place and accounted for.
And the car has alot of it. NO rust (other then some surface) at the bottom of the
rear window like many GM cars from this era. Dont think the car has ever had a
vinyl roof, o the top sheetmetal is in good shape. Much of the chrome is showing
its age after 50 yrs as you can expect, ut there is LITTLE TO NO PITTING !!
Why is this important ? Because it makes the re-chroming process much better
and cheaper for the consumer.

DRIVETRAIN: it is an original factory 401 Nailhead motor and Turbine Drive
drivetrain under the hood, hich as mentioned we know at least the motor
Will need a rebuild or major repair. (think they said it had a broken cam). The
transmission should be fine, ame for the stock rearend. Most all of the original
pieces are still under the hood if you plan on doing a Stock restoration.
If you are planning a 502 Big Block or Cummins Turbo Diesel conversion, hen
well at least you still have the original drivetrain for down the road if you want it.
Car did have Factory AC so thats nice for doing a restoration.
INTERIOR: old, riginal showing its age, ts because its been in the AZ climate
For the last 40+ yrs, ts very dry and in bad shape. It will need full restoration
here too on all the plastic and vinyl parts, r at least most of it. 3 out of 4 of the
factory PWs did move when I hit the switches. So they feel like they want to work
at least. Factory console and FT Bucket seats are a really cool touch on a 20 Foot long
Car !! The Buick Layout of the SPeedo / Gauges / Clock / Radio and MISC CONTROLS
is really classic and restored back to Stock, t would look awesome. Check out the AC
CONTROLS mostly hanging down above the radio. This was the JET AGE for America
and the car manufacturers reminded us of that for much of the 60s !! There is alot more
chrome inside this car then you can imagine. And its all steel, lmost no plastic here.
Just sitting in the car checking out the layout, felt like I should of had my flight suit on :)
Keep in mind, his car is far from being restored and you are buying a project car !!
Stock radio could wor, ard to say because the speaker is old.
TRUNK: mostly surface rust, idnt see any real rot to worry about, retty sure the
5th stock wheel / spare is missing, runk light is factory. I dont have a trunk key,
I actually only have 1 key for the car for the ignition. To OPEN the trunk, use the
factory TRUNK RELEASE neatly hidden in the Glove Box.

SUSPENSION: basically bone stock suspension thats been taken careof over the years.
NOT much to report because I cant drive the car, ut Im sure its old like rest of the
car and will need some attention in the future. But it all seems to be there making
for less work. Who knows, aybe its time for an Air Ride conversion :)

If other auctions are not showing areas under their trucks,
who really knows what sort of shape its in. Dont find out
the hard and $$ way. At least our auctions show as much
as possible to potential buyers and bidders.

slow connection, o be patient AND looks for the extra scroll
bar on the right side.

We put a lot of time and effort in marketing our cars and it shows.
Generally all of our vehicles sell the first time around, ut there are
occasions we have to relist. I cant tell you how many times people
email us trying to buy a vehicle that just sold on ebay because they
got outbid in the end, ust to find out the car is definitely sold
and no longer available. I suggest to avoid this happening to you,
put up a higher proxy bid before it ends so you can win the vehicle !!
We rarely have to relist of put out 2nd chance offers.
Our prices are usually much lower then most dreamers out there
too trying to sell cars online.
IF you choose to buy someone elses car we wish you the best, ut
if you dont see nice clear pics like ours, ho really knows what you
are getting unless you can check it out in person first.
Also, f you buy a car thats been "restored", ho knows what sort
of surprises are hidden under new paint or thick undercoating.
People are flipping cars all the time when most of the jobs are
fast, or a quick buck and quality suffers.
Our auctions have NOTHING to hide .
Restore a car like this yourself or locally and you know
exactly what you have in the end.

Email us with ANY questions before you bid please
If you treat yourself to buying one of our vehicles
youll never buy a total buckets again from anyone !!
Our Impeccable FEEDBACK speaks for itself.
Doing restoration on this type of project is less labor
intensive which means overall cost is less too !
With less horrid surprises later on.
Dont let auctions withlittle to no pics try to fool you.
With other auctions, nbsp;you really dont know what to expect
until you take the car apart. While we go over our cars ALL OVER
with great pics to help making your decision easier.
Along with ANY other questions you may have.
Email me for a quote for shipping from AZ as we are also a broker
and we have several companys to get the best quote for the
fastest service.
This CAR is LONG and SHIPPING IT AS AN INOP will probably cost
more then the avg car. SO check shipping cost before bidding or at least
keep in mind, hipping will cost about $1000 or more to get it across country.
I can get it to CA FROM AZ for about $600 . It rolls and steers and the ebrake
works a little. The normal brakes dont work.
Good luck in the bidding, t will be worth it in the end !!!
