Vehicle Description

Jane his wife: Few new-age Buick buyers would ever dream of their
coveted tri-shield adorning an aggressive design like this. Fewer
still would ever dream of accenting that aggressive design with a
coat of Lexus Nautical Blue, but thats exactly what this restorer
did. And today, in typical 60s Detroit fashion, Buicks first
generation LeSabre is adorned with long surfaces and sharp creases
that are incredibly hard to make straight. All these miles of delta
fins, and fender over hangings with the rear fins starting at the
beginnings of the door sills. Now thats serious fins! Fortunately,
the metal on this super cool cruiser has been worked and it is
looking good. There are some crosshatches from sanding of the body
filler that can be seen when inspecting the car closely. These
marks are noted throughout, but the filler has been used mainly to
make these difficult lines straight, and rust is and never was an
issue on this sexy body. Wrap-around front and rear glass, with a
white hardtop above. We have dual headlights that protrude from the
beginnings of the front fenders framed in the center with a shaver
style grille and the trio shield in the very center, and a
beautifully chromed bumper bellow which wraps around the fenders,
this car looks like not only can it drive you down the road in
Buick style but may even be able to fly. Bringing up the rear of
the car is a spacious trunk sandwiched in between those lovely
delta fins which provide the above framing for the round rocket
nose styled taillights. Another wonderfully shiny bumper below to
comb your hair or brush your teeth and tri-shield with B U I C K
badging on the trunk lid and 50s styled LeSabre type font on the
right. 20-inch wild looking Ridler wheels with low profile tires
are on all 4 corners giving this early Mid Century modern car a
contemporary twist. Eye candy fer sur.

Daughter Judy: Not unlike his overspending, raging hormone teen
daughter, the interior has spared no expense when it comes to
modern looking with plenty of space, looking like its from outer
space. Parchment white vinyl benches, the front being split, and
the rear custom stitched with a tri shield in its center, these
chairs are pristine. Door panels also have the parchment in tuck
and roll with some lower carpeting and more custom embroidery with
that groovy font saying LeSabre. The dash uses a fine mix of
pleated and chromed vinyl panels that create a point as they
cascade down from the speedo cluster. The speedo is one of those
cool rolling rods as one increases speed it moves horizontally past
the speeds. Within the "point" of the dash are some nifty square
Mirror Magic gauges and neat knobs and pulls for various comfort
controls. A big beautiful parchment steering wheel fronts the dash
and a lower brushed stainless panel with the transmission selectors
in round bezels and a gun sight indicating which position the
transmission is in. The original Sonomagic radio resides to the
steering wheel stage right when the lower panel dies into the
passenger glove box panel. Like new tan plush carpeting and the
headliner is near perfect.

His Boy Elroy: And just as feisty, and full of energy, bathed in
gold, the engine block, valve coverings, and intake manifold are
bedazzling. You are ooohing and ahhhing at 364 cubes in V8 form and
not knowing if it is original to the car but correct for this car.
A single 2-barrel carb feeds this golden mill, and a Dynaflow
Turbine Drive 2 speed automatic tranny is on back. Way back 3.07
gearing spins the rear rubbers. For the exhale, a dual Flowmaster
exhaust system is now on. As efficient, and purrs like a kitten
just like when it was driven off the showroom floor. Off to old
school. And all in a near perfect engine bay housing.

Have a gaze at the undercarriage pics, and youll see its all;
buttoned up fully restored and recoated steel. This sexy monster
rides upon independent coil sprung front suspension, and a 3-link
coil sprung rear suspension. Power drum brakes are all around and
can clearly be seen through this open big Ridlers. All good on the
