The 1990 Buick Reatta is a specially-crafted high-feature machine. This is when Buick dared to dream big and offered an expensive car few people could ever afford. So to find a preserved and affordable example means you have found a gem amongst gems.
The factory white paint on this well-preserved and respected car set a premium tone. And details like the wraparound rear glass and subtle gray pinstripe reinforce this upper-class image. But the Reatta is known for looking sporty, too. It's truly a performance-oriented design with swoopy lines, folding headlights, and 15-inch factory alloys. Overall, workmanship is very good, because it was built at a factory specially set up by GM to create these low-volume personal luxury cars. In fact, there were less than 6,400 coupes made this year - and far fewer left over 30 years later. So while General Motors is known for mass production, this Reatta can almost be considered hand-crafted.
The gray pinstripe on the exterior gets you ready for the full gray interior. It has the clean look of a low mileage car that has averaged less than 2,200 miles annually. As a true luxury machine, this one doesn't disappoint. The dual leather bucket seats are power-adjustable so you and your passenger can dial-in an individual level of comfort. Yours is particularly well-done with multiple adjustments for the ideal driving position. This was built to be a true driver's machine, and so Buick even gave it an electro-luminescent gauge panel. As expected with a car of this caliber, it comes with all the best features, including a sunroof, power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, cruise control, cup holders, the factory premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, and full automatic A/C climate control. Plus, later cars like this had a driver airbag to go with the safety-mined anti-lock brakes.
When you open the hood, you're treated to more of the well-maintained care that you've seen in the interior and exterior. This fuel-injected 3.8-liter V6 has been the backbone of Buick during this era because it provides terrific power while remaining quiet and reliable. It shows all signs of being original, and it runs as a well-respected modern-classic should. The Reatta was meant to be Buick's Mercedes SL competitor, so on the road, it feels confident with even a little hint of a sporty exhaust. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes make this a great car for long hauls or fun weekends on the backroads.
This is where rarity, desirability, and affordability all come together. Call today!!!
