The Buick Electra is a full-size premium automobile that was built by Buick from 1959 to 1990. Harlow H. Curtice, former president of the Buick division and later president of General Motors, named the car after his sister-in-law, Electra Waggoner Biggs. During its more than 30 year run, Electra was offered in varying body styles including coupe, convertible, sedan, and station wagon. The Electra was replaced by the Buick Park Avenue in 1991. Prior to 1959, the Roadmaster and the Limited constituted the upper echelon of Buick's lineup. For 1959, they were renamed the Electra and the Electra 225 respectively. The appearance was shared with two other Buick models, the mid-level Invicta and the entry level LeSabre. The Electra 225 nameplate was a nod to the latter car's overall length of over 225 inches, earning it the street name "deuce and a quarter." Buick offered seven layers of models this year starting at the bottom rung with the Apollo, then the Century, LeSabre, Centurion, Estate Wagon, the Electra 225, and the Buick Riviera topping off the list. Electra 225's came in hardtop sedan, hardtop coupe, Custom hardtop sedan, and the Custom hardtop coupe. This custom hardtop coupe is one of 44,326 like it and had a base price of $ 4,993. The Electra 225 and the Estate Wagon had the largest wheelbase of all Buicks this year: 127 inches ! No wonder this example looks so long. The engine for the 225 is of course a V8, with that huge 455 cubic displacement and provided either 225 or 250 horses. A revised egg-crate grille above a new federally mandated 5 mph (8.0 km/h) front bumper and revised taillights were among the most noticeable changes for the 1973 Electra 225. All engines now featured EGR valves to meet increasingly stringent 1973 emission standards, the EGR valve was featured on Buick engines for California cars in 1972. Features include new eggcrate grille, an almost standard feature on GM cars by this time. There were eighteen paint hue choices this year and this Buick is finished in glossy black even though the paint is called Midnight Gray Poly. Check out that fabulous pleated black interior covered by a pristine full black vinyl roof covering.

In 1973 GM had the bright idea of utilizing the Chevy Nova chassis and body for the new compact Buick Apollo and the Oldsmobile Omega. Both clones look like a Chevy Nova except different front and rear end treatments. Of course both of these clones like the Chevy Nova were at the bottom rung of all three divisions. All three compacts came in a hatchback coupe, coupe and 4 door sedan. This coupe is one of 26,126 made and had a price tag of $2,613. Engines for the Omega were a L-head 6 with 250 cid and 100 bhp., and a V8, 350 cid with 180 horses. GM market share kept climbing, reaching just over 52% of the domestic industry. The Omega replaced the final year of the Olds F-85 which only came in a four door model and only 3,792 were made for it's last year. While the Buick Apollo sales faltered, the Olds Omega continued on through the 1984 model year and then replaced by the Olds Firenza. All three compacts could be dressed up with a vinyl roof and some power accessories. This example is hardly seen anymore and is in excellent condition. My guess is that is was an one owner car most of it's life and always maintained and garaged. I hope you enjoy this first year clone, the 1973 Oldsmobile Omega and thanks very much for viewing.

Chevrolet Nova Fourth generation The 1975 Chevrolet Nova was the most-changed Chevy car for that model year. "Now it's beautiful," said the brochure of Nova's all-new sheet metal, "refined along the lines of elegant European sedans." Chevrolet wisely maintained a visual kinship with the 1968-1974 design, and also retained Nova's efficiently sized 111-inch wheelbase. Front tread grew by an inch and a half, and the front stabilizer bar had a larger diameter. Novas now had standard front disc brakes and steel-belted radial tires. The front suspension and subframe assembly was similar to the one used in the second generation GM F-body cars (the Camaro and Pontiac Firebird), whereas the rear axle and suspension were carried over from the previous generation. Coupes, including the hatchback, had fixed side windows (or optional flip-out windows) and vertical vents on the B-pillar. All Novas now had cut-pile carpeting, formerly installed only in the Custom series. Speedometers had larger, easier-to-read graphics. Windshields offered greater glass area. Front-door armrests were redesigned with integral pull bars. The base model carried the inline Six-cylinder 250 cu in (4.1 L), 105 hp (78 kW), three V8 engines (262 cu in (4.29 L), a 1975-only option, a 305 cu in (5.00 L) and a 350 cu in (5.7 L)) for 1976 only, were offered. Mated to a three-speed automatic, 3-speed manual or 4-speed – V8s only – Which remained the norm through the end of the decade (and the end of the rear-wheel drive X platform).
