A great classic coupe with low mileage and a ton of well-preserved originality all come together on this 1981 Buick LeSabre. It makes for a distinctive and detail-oriented classic offered for quite a nice price.

You just don't see too many Buicks from this era anymore, especially as nicely presented as this one. Of course, averaging barely over 500 miles annually is a telltale sign of a coupe that has been treated special for decades. And we understand exactly why this one gets respect. It's part of a bygone era of long and stylish American two-doors. The burgundy paint shows all signs of being original, and the overall impression is a car that has spent much more time in the garage than out on the road. The half-vinyl roof is in a tastefully coordinating burgundy for a true touch of premium Buick style. Plus, we love the addition of the Vogue tires. They have an elegance that draws attention to the wire wheel covers, and the extra gold line goes with the car's golden pinstripe.

The red interior is a true exercise in vintage elegance. It starts with the seats that has a vivid color and a comfy pillow-top velour. And as you look over the door panels, carpeting, headliner, and all the details, you soon see that it's all thoughtfully coordinated. Not only is this the factory color combo, but also this is believed to be an exceptionally preserved original presentation. Because this is a full-size coupe, you've got room to bring up to five family and friends along with ease. Or you can fold down the middle armrest to give you a more individual luxury experience. No matter how many people are along for the ride, they will all do it in comfort. This came loaded from the factory with features such as power locks, tilt steering column, AM/FM stereo, and cruise control. The factory air conditioning is still blowing cold with a recent upgrade to modern R134a refrigerant upgrade.

Under the hood is the 4.1-liter V6. This is believed to be the original unit for the car, and that's quite a good thing. Remember, these are hardy motors, as part of the same line that Buick used to add a turbo to make the Grand Nationals. Of course, this one isn't about being a speed demon, and instead, it just wants to uphold the smooth and easy nature of a luxury coupe. In fact, this car is all about being a great cruiser near or far. That's because 1981 was the debut year of the 2004R four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes, front discs, and Buick's legendary supple ride.

Complete with maintenance records, you rarely find cars that look this good that are also this affordable. That's why we know you're going to need to act fast to take this LeSabre home. Call today!!!
