Used 1976 Buick Electra for sale in Volo, IL
The Limited Electra is the top of the line. This one is extra sexy in triple black with chrome wheels. It is a 2 owner, 65,000 documented mile car that lived in Texas. In the glovebox it has its original manuals and warranty booklet. Texas has a yearly safety inspection, we have all of those, registrations and more. The first owner kept it until 2008. The 2nd and current owner is a Buick Electracollector. He has owned as many as 8 at a time.
EXTERIOR: Like I already said, this car is sexy. It's had one repaint. The black is slick. I'm looking down the side of the car and it truly is straight as an arrow. The body gaps lineup and fit square. I don't see any signs of rust. The vinyl Landau top is in excellent condition, there are no bumps under it. All the trim, moldings and chrome are original and still shine. The 15 inch Buick mags have bright shiny chrome, the gloss black has been repainted. Newer tires with a wide white stripe really makes it all pop.
INTERIOR: I'm sitting in the car right now as I write this. It is in practically new condition. Very luxurious genuine leather upholstery. It's a split a true split bench seat with fold down armrest. Looking at the dash area, it's excellent. The knobs, wood grain, vents, steering wheel don't show any wear. It features an AM-FM stereo with 8 track, climate control, tilt wheel, remote passenger mirror. The odometer reflects the actual miles of 65,328. Interior lights work uncluding the vanity mirror. It also has power windows, power locks, power driver seat. The carpets look new, has original Buick mats. Headliner is excellent. There are two flaws I should mention. Upper driver seat has a rear in the leather, that section can be replaced. There's a small crack in the armrest that honestly I wouldn't do anything about it if we're my car.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The big optional 455 moves this land yacht. The engine compartment is very original looking. It has not been monkeyed with. The fan shroud, overflow bottle, wires, hoses, components look to be proper. Even the original air cleaner still has the heat riser tube still attached. The air conditioning system has had some new parts and updated to 134a freon.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: completely boxed and lined with black carpet.
UNDERSIDE: Being from Texas the underside is rock solid. Aside from insignificant surface haze there is not rot or flaking. Even the lower inner 1/4s are clean. Still has original spiral shocks in back. The muffler and resonator was replaced.
This is a striking car, luxurious and has a great history. It will be a pleasure to drive. It will get compliments. It is worthy of any car show. Where are you going to get all that under $20,000? Right here, that's where!
