Features (see pictures)
Midnight Blue with deep blue factory leather interior. Theonlyyear Buick even offered leather as an option.
Factory wood trim on the doors, factory AC, power brakes, power windows (all 4), and the legendary 401 Nailhead V8, better known as theWildcat 445paired with factory dual exhaust and the powerful and smooth Dynaflow transmission.
NEVER been wrecked- ALL lines straight and correct- doors, hood, trunk, and fenders. Really nice chrome and hubcaps. Original Sonomatic AM radio with the, "B -U-I-C-K" push buttons. Original carpet in surprisingly good condition, very little wear, as well as the original floor mats, trunk liner, and spare tire cover. The light turquoise headliner and sun visors are also in very good shape.
Always garage-kept and well maintained.
5 steel belted radials with less than 5,000 mile-spare like new. K&N air filter helps her achieve up to 14 MPG. New mufflers, rebuilt alternator, new water pump, rebuilt master cylinder, new drive shaft universals, new thermostat, new battery.
Problems (see pictures)
Needs an AC compressor- AC worked fine last summer.
The wood trim on the doors under the functioning wing windows needs to be refinished.
The lacquer paint job is alligatoring in several areas.
There are a number of scratches that might be buffable to the paint on the driver's side that will need to be addressed and one very small dent that is covered up with polishing marks on the driver's door, but should be an easy fix.
The hood has several very small rust issues at the front lip the most dramatic of which is a single hole that measures about 1/4" x 1/8".
Small tear, an L-shaped flap that only measures about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"in the driver's seat.
Small ding that measures about 4" x 1/4"near the trunk keyhole.
Pitting on the two small chrome pieces around the brake lights.
VERY strong. VERY fast. VERY dependable.
This car is in great running condition-and does well on long trips.
