1990 Buick Reatta Convertible Additional Info:

You are bidding on a very nice, very low mileage 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible in a very desirable red color. The Reatta convertible, made only in 1990 and 1991 is becoming quite collectible. Only 2,437 convertibles were ever made. Consider those cars that have been wrecked or crushed, there are very few remaining - this is a money making collectible, yet very affordable.
The convertible is far moreattractive than thecoupe version, of course, with the top down she is very sharp indeed. Thereis arigidtonneaucover that covers the top when it is retracted. Very smooth.

Her actual mileage is 47,320.
She runs perfectly, shifts perfectly and tracks down the road perfectly. A real pleasure to own and drive.
The convertible top is in very nice condition, not new, but nice. Of course, it is a manual top with the switch to open it directly behind the driver's seat in the storage bin. There are two of these bins, one behind each seat. They also lock.
Strictly a two seater there is no capacity for only two. There is also a pass through between the two storage compartments. It allows access to the trunk or can accommodate a pair of skis or golf clubs.
Stereo works perfectly - with a CD player. Interior is one of the best I've seen. She has the optional lumbar seats, a rare option. The seats are in perfect condition.
The electronic dash is in perfect working condition - as you can see by the pictures. A/C blows cold, heat works well, power options all work.
I fixed the headlights with new metal gears (the factory used plastic gears that broke), as they ALL fail if this upgrade isn't completed. They now extend and retract flawlessly and should last for the life of the car. The rear taillight, which spans the entire length of the trunk, works fine and I think all of the lights work (but I'll make sure that they do before the winning bidder receives the car).
Tires are in great shape, the rims are better than average but not new. The alignment is great - there is no rust.
Reatta's drive quite well and float down the road, while not a sports-car, it could be described as a grand touring car. She handles fine, brakes well and she downshifts quite well, The transmission is very smooth and shifts perfectly.
The wipers, windows, PS, PB, ABS, Cruise, etc all work fine. Stereo sounds great too.
If you know Reatta's you know they all need paint work. The factory paint fades on all of them. as this was a southern car, it faded a bit. You can certainly drive it like this - the side of the car are great, as you can see (dent free) just the hood and trunk need a respray or a good compound, I haven't tried that yet.
The trunk is in new condition - see pictures as this car was obviously well kept. The spare tire is there and the tool kit is also there - with the jack.
New oil, filters and plugs also.
You'll enjoy this car as it continues to escalate in value. It is truly a collectors car and one that will outpace Wall Street, in my opinion. It's been voted one of the top ten future collectible by multiple sources. Only xx were made in 1990.
Also, the dash was changed in 1990. Which was a welcome change. 1990 and 1991 were the only years for the convertible and the only years to collect, again, my opinion.
She also gets good miles per gallon. I've seen as high as 25mpg - driving normally.
Please review the pictures, email any questions. Inspections are welcomed and encouraged. My opinion of respond to all emails, usually the same day. Requests for more pictures can be accommodated.
There is an immediate $500 non refundable deposit due from the winning bidder. The balance due in 5 days, no exceptions.
The car is being offered as-is, and no warranty implied or expressed. The car is located in Lake Forest, IL, zip code 60045. I cannot hold the car very long after purchase as I have too many cars to store inside. Winter is coming to Chicago.
Good Luck Bidding.
