1960 Buick Electra
Car for sale by Carroll St Auto & Collectibles in Manchester, New Hampshire 03102
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Here we have a 1960 Buick Electra 225 convertible, an already rare find made all the better with this cars many strong points. With just two previous owners and only around 48,500 miles accumulated since it glided off the assembly line, this Electra 225 is incredibly original and impressively solid in terms of its underside and sheet metal. The car was last registered in 1981, but was started and run on a regular basis to keep things lubricated.
The original white paint has some flaws, as would be expected of a 59 year old car, but still presents quite respectably. The tri-tone leather interior is in very good condition with the exception of the front seats bottom cushion. We have installed a brand new top and have also ordered the correct leather to refurbish that area of the seat. Other than those items, a new battery and a new set of tires, the Electra is all original. In addition to the 401 V8 engine, automatic transmission, PS and PB, this opulent drop top is equipped with power windows, a power seat and a power top.
Having been through our shop, the big Buick is now ready for car shows, ice-cream outings with the kiddies and sun dappled road trips. Please call Carroll Street Auto at (603) 627-5595 for further information or to schedule time to view this king of the highway. Financing is offered through our approved lender, trades are welcome and enclosed shipping can be arranged.
