1975 Buick LeSabre Convertible, FOR SALE www.columbiamotorcars.com
1975 Buick LeSabre Custom Convertible The upscale LeSabre Luxus designation was dropped and replaced by the LeSabre Custom nameplate. 1975 also was the first year of the catalytic converter, and standard high energy ignition which was part of GM's Maximum Mileage System at the time. The 1975 LeSabre was the first to require use of unleaded gasoline, due to the advent of the catalytic converter. The LeSabre lineup offered a coupe and two sedans while the LeSabre Custom lineup offered the coupe, two sedans, and the only convertible in the Buick lineup. 1975 would be the final year for the LeSabre Custom Convertible with around 5,300 examples rolling off the assembly lines. Engine offerings were simplified and reduced to just two including the standard 5.7-litre V8 (350 CID)and a four-barrel carburetor or optional 7.5-litre V8 (455 CID) with a four barrel. Bodylines on the 1975 were somewhat softer than the 1974 model featuring round headlights side-by-side and a cross-hatched patterned grille that flowed across the front of the car and under the headlights. Turn signals were located in the front bumper. A Buick tri-shield hood ornament was standard on the Custom Series and optional on the base series. The three-hole 'ventiports' were moved from the hood to the front fenders. Slightly larger taillamps than the 74 draped the back of the car with back-up lights positioned in the center broken up by the license plate. Four-door pillared sedans received a new small third windows to emulate the six-window "Colonnade" styling of GM intermediates while four-door hardtop sedans had new opera windows. Inside, a new flat instrument panel shared with Electra and Riviera replaced the wrap-around cockpit dash of previous years and featured a horizontal sweep speedometer that read to only 100 mph compared to 120 mph in previous years and also included kilometer readings. Otherwise, interior trimmings received only minor revisions. Convertible production for both the LeSabre Custom and the Centurion convertibles were not very abundant in the years 1971 to 1975. The rarest production in that time was the 1971 LeSabre Custom with just over 1,800 units built, and the most produced was the 1973 Centurion with slightly over 5,700 units built. Due to this very low production volume and the end of the full-size convertible era, this may make this series of ragtop LeSabre Custom and Centurion Convertibles quite collectable - depending on the vehicles' overall condition. The convertible mechanism used was called the 'scissor top' that folded inward on itself, instead of straight back. This was featured on all GM full-size convertibles from 1971 to 1976.

Buick Electra 225 Limited Landau... Just like its Relatives in the Chevy Oldsmobile and Pontiac Brands The Impala, Caprice or Nintey Eight Oh lord lots of other Classic 70's GM cars and i do like them all . This car could be a Park Avenue I am not sure and am checking the rear suspension to see if that helps. it definatly top of its class coupeWhether your a Chevy Oldsmobile or Pontiac fan You just have to give a hat tip to the biggest baddest Buick made in this year I think...;-) These are Great cars the Sedans were the Longest car made I Believe. This car Sports a 455. I do Not know how to tell If it is the Park Ave I am leaning towards No because of a consule but cars were ordered every way you could Imagine back in the day and i just do not know how to tell If it is a Par Ave They only made 35 of them in this year and i doubt i would sell it. Make sure and check out My other Videos I have over 625 of them. http://www.1ownercarguy.com and you can call me anytime 406 544 6919. Nathan Wratislaw AKA 1 Owner Car Guy From Wikipedia 1975 brought about changes in all of General Motors C-body cars. In 1975, all Electra 225 coupes had fixed rear side windows and center posts. 1975 also brought along a newer front end and interior design. Rectangular headlights became standard on all GM C-body cars, along with many others. This supposedly would allow engineers to lower the front end to reduce wind resistance, but this wasn't very apparent with the new design. The Electra received a new metal "eggcrate" style grille, which covered most of the front end, and wrapping under the headlights. The grille included running lights on either side. There was a choice of a base model Electra 225 whose trim and appointments were upgraded to the same level as the previous year's Electra 225 Custom and an upscale Limited. The 1975 Electra was also the longest Buick ever built at 233.4 inches (5,928 mm), which is over 19 feet. These cars dwarfed the newer front-wheel drive Electras and Park Avenues in sheer size and weight. Power windows and a power driver's seat became standard on all Electra models in 1975. Also new to the standard equipment list were radial-ply tires. The 1975 Electra was one of the first GM vehicles to offer an Air Cushion Restraint System or "airbag". Inside, a new flat instrument panel (shared with LeSabre, Estate Wagon and Riviera) with horizontal sweep speedometer (silver facing with black lettering) replaced the wrap-around cockpit dash of previous years and door panel trim was revised. The speedometer was scaled back from 120 to 100 mph (160 km/h) and kilometer readings were added. Technical changes for 1975 included the addition of a catalytic converter and electronic ignition to not only meet the stringent 1975 and later emission requirements, but also extended routine maintenance intervals, and improved fuel economy and driveability which was a must in the era immediately following the 1973--74 energy crisis, but also spelled the end of dual Exhaust systems and mandated the use of unleaded gasoline as the converter could be rendered useless if contaminated with lead. Axle ratios were also numerically lowered to aid in improving gas mileage. The 455 four-barrel V8, now rated at 205 horsepower (153 kW), was retained as the standard and only available engine. Electra Limited Park Avenue The Park Avenue, originally an interior comfort and appearance package, gave buyers ultra-luxurious pillow-topped seating, a center console, velour headliner, thicker carpet, and an upscale door panel design. The Park Avenue's seats were designed by Flexsteel. This seating design was shared by the Cadillac Sixty Special with the Talisman (1974--1976) option and stayed with Park Avenue through the 1980 model year. Many Park Avenues were built with the full size center console (unlike the Sixty Special's Talisman's half console), which eliminated the 6th passenger, in the front middle, between the driver and front passenger. 1975 also offered a more luxurious Park Avenue Deluxe, which was sold only in 1975, and included every option available on the Electra (posi-traction, 15" rallye sport wheels, rear automatic leveling, etc.). The Park Avenue Deluxe was an expensive option not popular with buyers; only 37 were built. The Park Avenue would remain as the top level trim package through 1990. In 1991, the Electra name would be dropped and Park Avenue would replace it as the flagship Buick sedan.

1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!!
1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE! This is a rust free Wildcat Convertible (Body Style 67) with the 455 V-8 and 83k miles since new. This is an incredibly rare Wildcat Convertible with the highly desirable matching numbers 455 cu in big block V-8 with Rochester four barrel carburetor. 1970 was the last year for the Buick Wildcat and was the only year for the formidable 455 V-8! This is likely that out of only 1,244 Wildcat Convertibles only about 200 were made in this configuration since the vast majority of the Wildcats were specified with the 350... and what a difference the big block makes! This example is presented in Signal Red and has seen one average quality repaint since new. The coachwork has a few minor "door dings" and other imperfections but overall is in good condition and the paint finish is quite serviceable. We thoroughly examined this for bondo and rust and found the body to be in very good condition with no signs of rust or significant body damage. Overall this motorcar can be presented at local car shows but in not a concours contender. The interior is a combination of original and new replacement. There are a couple of dash pad cracks and minor imperfection but overall the interior is in good condition and very serviceable as is. The top is newer and in very good condition. The chrome is in good to excellent condition. This example is also equipped with factory air conditioning that is presently not operational. The '70 Wildcats went out with an all new 455 cid V8, rated at 370 hp and a pavement pounding 510 lb-ft of torque. This new 455 engine had a 10:1 compression ratio, a cast iron block, hydraulic lifters, five main bearings, and a four barrel carburetor. This drivetrain provided performance of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 126 mph! Unfortunately while at the top of it's performance peak, the Wildcat's sales dropped considerably and the Wildcat was dropped completely from the Buick line-up. This example was sold new in Arizona in March of 1970. It remained in Arizona except for a brief stint as part of a collection in Ohio (although we are uncertain whether the car ever left the state). It is presently in excellent mechanical condition as it has accumulated about 2,000 miles in the last few months!! This motorcar is in good condition overall and can be used for extensive touring, car shows or as a daily driver!!
