1964 Buick Electra 225 The Buick Electra is a full-size luxury car that was built by Buick from 1959 to 1990. Harlow H. Curtice, former president of the Buick division and later president of General Motors, named the car after his sister-in-law, Electra Waggoner Biggs. This Deuce and a Quarter features the last of the long straight slab-sided bodies, with long straight, chrome die cast moldings to accentuate the cars length. Only 9,045 2 doors were built, there are very few survivors, and even fewer in mostly original unrestored condition. A 2-owner car with consigner stated original mileage of 78,786. Exterior Teal Tel Mist Poly is the original paint you see covering those large straight slabs with near factory gapping. A Cream hardtop an original actual 2 door hardtop covers the sea of teal below. Straight and in excellent condition straight chromed die cast grille in front with tri shield logo, and accent in back, span the width of the car. Original head and tail lights, still clear, no fading is seen. Standard hub caps covered by slightly wide white sidewall tires which consigner states have only 3,000 miles on them. Interior Clear non yellowed plastic covering has protected the brocaded grey cloth and vinyl bolster since the car rolled out of the showroom. So, the cloth seats have never been actually sat on! Door panels use this brocade motif as well, and a bottom strip of matching carpeting covers the bottom quarter of the panels. A fairly minimal option car, on the dash is seen only the AM radio, as well as tri shield floor mats. The remainder was standard fare for 1964 which includes power steering, power brakes, and a clock. Keep things simple all the way. Carpeting below the floor mats appears in good condition. Drivetrain A 401ci V-8 with a 4-barrel carburetor sits in an original engine bay. The consigner states at one point a mechanic replaced the valve cover gaskets, and took it upon himself to paint the covers, unfortunately the incorrect color. Also seen is a mesh cover over the air cleaner intake, put there by the original owner. Apparently, he was a fanatic about fastidiousness, and maybe wanted to keep bugs from going into the air cleaner? A TH 400 3-speed automatic transmission was used this year and is still shifting flawlessly, and smoothly. Underside presents with surface rust, but is otherwise structurally sound, and clean. A spectacularly preserved and cared for 1964 Electra, one of the best youll find, and youll find it at the Classic Auto Mall.
