Classic Car Overview

1961 Buick LeSabre Convertible LeSabre (the French work for sword) and all other full-sized Buicks were completely restyled for 1961 featuring finless rear ends, more restrained use of chrome, and boxier sheetmetal. Wheelbases remained at 123 inches, but the new cars were slightly downsized in both length and width and rode on a new X-frame chassis which included a conventional rear axle and driveshaft replacing the decades-old torque tube design. For consignment this beautiful Bimini Blue repaint convertible oozes early 1960s design. Imagine yourself cruising down the road, Wayfarers on, wife in bandanna, wind in your hair and not a care in the world. Open up the carburetor and allow the Turbine Drive transmission to take you downtown to the fondue party with the hipsters. Exterior Bimini Blue respray covers the totally finless metal slabs that retail an array of good condition brite work. From the 3 front quarter panel quintessential vents to the Jetsons styled LeSabre brite work in the front fender nose, to the rear trunk lid tri shield. All presents in good condition. The use of a straight line ending in a V curve shows in front, on the A pillar, and on the rear bumper. Boomerang like shapes throughout, and mini front bumper Dagmars, the overall design is leaving the 50s behind and ushering in the jet age. A consigner stated new top was put on in 1985. Interior Original blue vinyl vertically ribbed bench seats are revealed with a swing of the wide doors. A dark blue wide stripe runs down the middle of each seat, breaking up the ribbing. Non-original carpets are covered by period correct floor mats. Doors carry over the light and dark blue motif, and sport new glass tracks, felts, and door rubber. New rubber can also be noted on the side door vent windows. In front of those seats, a sculpted dash hangs bright silver trim between correct Mirromagic gauges in a field of cream color surrounded by dark blue metal. The radio does work, sadly the clock does not. In front of the driver, a painted tilt steering column spins a polished wheel around a billet shift lever and a super cool gear indicator. And behind the passengers, a gigantic trunk features enough room to swallow anything short of a full-size refrigerator. Drivetrain A 2-barrel original Rochester carburetor sits proudly atop a 36ci4 V8 AKA Small Nailhead and is backed by an automatic Turbine Drive transmission. Power steering, power brakes new belts, new radiator core, and slightly used original tanks from another donor car can be seen. Undercarriage One of the few frowns we will run into with this car is one encounters when viewing the underside of the car is some rust that is through a few areas. In particular the floor pans, a few of the rocker panels, and a part of the floor support. Otherwise exhaust is practically new, and a new passenger side manifold is seen. Drum brakes all around have new pads installed. Overall car is nice but is in need of aforementioned attention.
