1961 Buick Electra bubble top 8 window sedan with B pillar, 401 Nailhead w/ 80k miles,New suspension shocks and coils w/1.5” drop, tires, front disk brake conversion with new booster and master cylinder, timing chain, water pump, thermostat, aluminum radiator with fan and shroud, new valley pan and valve covers. Interior is 100% original, exterior paint and chrome are original. The bubble top paint is custom and very high grade. This is Bill Mitchell’s first GM design with no fins. In 1961 all GM models have fins except the Buick’s. This design is what in 1964 becomes the muscle car look. 25000 Buick’s made in 1961, 1225 had the B pillar and making this the rarest configuration. 325 HP & 445 Tourque, 2 speed auto that can be pushed started. Though it is a 2 speed, it’s high and low. When D (drive) it’s one gear from stop to top speed, and with 445 lb tq, it pulls hard and drives fast. I’m the third owner, and this car has always been loved including the previous two.
