Classic Car Overview

In the 1980s, these Buick Regals were ubiquitous on the streets, but when was the last time you saw one? Offering a handsome color combination, a familiar 3.8 V6, and incomparable 80s luxury, this 1985 Buick Regal Limited is an awesome throwback to a simpler time thats very attractively priced. The books call this Cream Beige and its a subtle shade of light yellow that looks very upscale on the crisply folded Regal sheetmetal. These were really good looking cars back in the day, offering both a formal roofline and sporty long hood/short deck styling that really worked well. The paint is a respray that was done a few years ago, and its probably better than the original stuff would look today. Sure, its been driven, but theres very little evidence of it and youll be pleasantly surprised by just how good build quality was in 1985. Those big doors close with ease and thanks to healthy rubber weather seals, the interior is as quiet as a tomb. The vinyl half-roof adds some formality, and after seeing all those blacked-out Grand Nationals at every show, this one proudly wears a ton of chrome, all of which remains in very good overall condition. The interior is in fantastic condition. It appears to be almost entirely original, but its obvious that someone took exceptionally good care of it throughout its life. Its almost impossible to see where anyones posterior has been, because the drivers seat is firm, the steering wheel is like new, and theres not even a little depression where youd rest your elbow on the center armrest. The carpets show some minor wear thats probably inevitable on the deep pile they used in 85, and the burled walnut appliques actually look pretty convincing. Options include power windows and locks, factory A/C (needs to be serviced), a tilt steering column, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette radio thats probably due for an upgrade since it powers up but doesnt play. You also get a giant trunk that includes the original mouse fur mats as well as a pair of spare tires, one full-sized and one space-saver (we dont know why). Buicks indestructible 3.8 liter V6 provides plenty of grunt in the upscale Regal and is as silky smooth as youd expect. It has been properly maintained, so everything works like it should and the car starts, idles, and runs very much like its 1985 all over again. Its not detailed for show, but it is tidy and you could clean it up to really make a difference without a lot of effort. Given the bulletproof reliability of Buicks 3.8, you can drive this car with confidence just as you might have in 1985. The 4-speed automatic transmission shifts beautifully and the tall overdrive and highway gears out back make this a super highway cruiser ready for a road trip. Theres a brand new exhaust system that features twin tailpipes and a hushed muffler, and while theres a bit of surface scale, this is a very solid car. Factory wire wheel covers are the right choice and it sits on 205/75/14 whitewall radials, as original. This is a car with a lot of potential to go any way youd like, even if thats just keeping it the way it is and reliving 1985. Call today!
