This 1969 Buick Electra 225 convertible is the cool triple-black machine that's loaded with all the best features, including big V8 power and an A/C interior. And it's even a one-owner car with all the right documentation.
The 1960s belonged to Buick, and they closed out the decade with their top-dog convertible in a big way. There's just something about how the sharply creased fenders beautifully incorporate the bright chrome bumpers in the design to give this an authoritative presence. This combines with the trim line that gracefully wraps around the front wheel well and then leaves a sporty streak down the profile. Buick truly had style. Wire wheel covers, fender skirts, and a crisp black folding roof add to this elegance. Plus, it's all wrapped in a more recent application of black paint that has a shine worthy of this sunshine-friendly droptop.
Inside is a well-preserved package that completes the desirable triple black (exterior, interior, and roof.) The Electra 225 was Buick's most expensive convertible in '69. In fact, only the Riviera was more expensive that year, and only by around $50. So when you paid big money, you expected a luxury interior like this. The black leather looks original, and so you get to appreciate the intricate pattern on the seats and artful insert on the door panels. This full-size convertible has plenty of room for family and friends, but the driver will always remain king. That's why you have a fold-down armrest for individual comfort, and the seat power adjusts to your position. The factory steering wheel gives you a clear view to the full gauge panel. Plus, the instrument cluster is built around you with everything in easy reach from power locks to the AM/FM stereo that spells B-U-I-C-K in the presets. But your favorite luxury options will be the power convertible top and power windows. Together, they mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Since the factory air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can enjoy this convertible well into the summer.
This premium Buick retains its correct-style 430 cubic-inch V8. It's a great displacement to have, because it was only produced for a few years. The big V8 looks great with Buick's red block paint and matching valve covers radiating power from within the dark engine bay. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this motor knew how to keep this premium droptop running in the sporty and sophisticated crowd. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and Buick's legendary ride, and you've got the perfect all-day cruiser.
Since this is a one-owner car, all the right documentation come with the sale. It includes the factory buildsheet, dealer invoice, original bill of sale, and owner's manual packet. This Electra 225 convertible is a rare and premium treat at an obtainable price, call today!
