1964 Buick Electra Additional Info:

48,900 actual mile survivor. This is a dream boat, it rides and feels so smooth. Mostly original condition- pristine body, excellent interior with super rare bucket seats and console.
EXTERIOR: The body is an A++ on this car. There is no rust or damage, it is completely straight from every angle, every panel fits precisely. The doors can be opened with one finger and you can just let go and they click shut. The paint is believed to be mostly original. It shows really well, if you look for them you will find touch ups. The chrome and trim on this car is a 9 out of 10 and it's original. The bumpers shine beautifully, the grill is mint. It still has all four original T-3 headlights. Down each side the wide moldings are shiny and straight. The handles, fender ports, emblems are mint. The stainless trim is straight and shiny. Window frames are excellent. The tail panel looks pristine. The stainless the hubcaps are in excellent shape, they're unique to the Buick Electra. It has new Coker white wall tires. I think the convertible top is even original. It's in good shape, the rear window is a little yellowed. The power top pump was replaced. All the original glass is crystal clear including the windshield. The jambs are clean original, there are some old oil change stickers.
INTERIOR: It is in amazing original condition. Rare bucket seats and an extremely rare center console. The upholstery is all original with genuine leather. The leather is still soft, not cracked but has crinkles. The door panels are mint. The dash looks practically new. The lenses, knobs, chrome are mint. The steering wheel is like new. The original carpet is very good, has original rubber mats. Interior lights work. It features power seat, windows, and a speed minder. In the glovebox it has the original owner's manual and protect-o-plate.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is not detailed or spray painted. The Wildcat 401 nailhead motor has 4 barrel carb and makes 325 hp/445 lbs of torque. It runs as smooth as silk! A compression test was done and each cylinder is at 150 lbs. It was given a tune up, plugs and wires. It has a new battery bolted down properly. The glass washer fluid bottle is still in place. Features include power steering and brakes. It wouldn't take much to detail this motor compartment to look new. We chose to let the next owner decide to leave it original or make it show quality.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has the original liner which is deteriorating but the trunk is rock solid. The original yellow paint under the lid is real nice, the rubber is soft. It does have the jack and spare assembly.
UNDERSIDE: The metal under this car is amazing. The floors are smooth, inner rockers and quarters have zero rot, the seams and pinch welds are crisp and clean. It is 100% original metal, never patched or repaired. It has the big finned Buick brakes, they have been serviced, new hoses. It has a new muffler and tailpipe. It was the first year of the 3-speed Super Turbine Turbo 400 automatic. It even has it's original spiral shocks in back.
There is a difference in a low mile survivor and a restored car. I call it a sweetheart when they are like this one. It rides like it's on a cloud, there are no vibrations or rattles, everything fits right. They are only original once!
