1975 Buick Le Sabre
Convertible Car for sale by Harwood Motors in Macedonia, Ohio 44056
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
Lifetime California and Florida car. One older repaint in excellent shape. Beautiful original interior. Loaded including ice cold A/C, PW, PDL, PB, BS, cruise, tilt, and more. Everything works, drives great! Lots of car for the money!
This pretty code 11 Arctic White Buick spent most of its life in California and a few years in Florida, where it never had to suffer the indignities of snow and salt. As a result, it remains extremely clean and straight, with no signs of rot or neglect and excellent bodywork throughout. It was repainted a few years ago, not because of accident damage or rust, but because of the havoc that the hot sun plays on enamel paint. Sight down the flanks and you see straight body panels and good gaps, and that crease that runs from nose to tail doesn’t allow for errors in assembly. A gold pinstripe highlights the body’s contours and it still carries “Venti-Ports” on the front fenders, a Buick trademark since the 1940s. You’ll note that the urethane bumper extensions are in very good condition, the original chrome is holding up quite well, and it is equipped with rather rare fiber-optic indicators on top of the front fenders, an option even on expensive Buicks. More than one person has walked past this Buick in the showroom and said, “Wow, that’s really a nice car!” as if they didn’t expect it.
The code 73W Burgundy vinyl interior is likewise mostly original and in excellent shape. The carpets have been replaced with excellent reproductions that fit like they should, but everything else seems to be factory-issue. For a car that lived in the sun, the dash pad is not cracked and even the plastic steering wheel isn’t broken or split, which is a real surprise. This LeSabre is loaded, too, including cold factory A/C, power windows and locks, power front seat, tilt steering column, the aforementioned fiber-optic indicators, cornering lights, rear defroster, Speed Alert, cruise control, and an AM/FM stereo radio with new speakers throughout. There are a few of the usual signs of age, a scuff here and a wrinkle there, but overall it’s very nicely preserved and everything works, including the clock! Overhead, the white power convertible top folds easily with the touch of a button, and it seals up well thanks to some new weather seals and a glass rear window. It also includes a color-matched fiberglass parade boot that’s in excellent condition—have you priced one of those recently? And just check out that ultra-clean trunk, which includes a full-sized spare with cover and a factory jack assembly.
This LeSabre is powered by Buick’s torquey and smooth 350 cubic inch V8, which makes the big ragtop feel reasonably fleet in traffic. But where this car really shines is when you can just lay back and cruise, letting the V8 burble along almost silently, the pillowy suspension making bumps disappear, and enjoy the sky overhead. It’s tidy and clean in the engine bay and shows conscientious maintenance over the years, including a recent tune-up that ensures it runs properly. The A/C has been converted to R134a refrigerant for easy service in the future and there are recent belts and hoses plus a new alternator. Turn the key and it fires right up every time, idles smoothly, and just goes about its business without any fussing. If you want an interesting old convertible, this one has the right hardware for the guy who is into driving instead of fixing.
The engine is backed by GM’s tough TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, which shifts cleanly and has no issues. There are tall 3.08 gears on a limited slip (yes!) out back, so this is a fantastic highway cruiser that just loafs along at 70 MPH. Buick Road Wheels are some of the most attractive wheels you could get on a GM car, and these are in excellent shape and carry brand new 225/75/15 whitewall radials.
Documentation includes the original owner’s manual, shop manual, advertising materials, and other books, plus a factory build sheet.
Owned by an extremely fastidious guy who wanted everything right, this is the kind of car you want to buy. All the hard work has been done and history has proven that these big Buicks are reliable, easy-to-maintain cars. It also offers modern performance, comfortable driving manners, and lots of options, so you shouldn’t feel like you have to suffer with a bare-bones car when you’re out having fun. And you will surely discover that everywhere you go in a car like this, people are your friend. It’s like a one-car parade. Get in, drive, have fun. Sometimes it really is that easy. Call today!
