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.

Classic Car Overview

Designed as a halo vehicle for the entire Buick lineup, the Reatta is one of the most interesting American cars entering into classic car status. With a strong and reliable powertrain borrowed from the Riviera, an agile all-independent suspension, and a sporty two-seat body full of every luxury option Buick could come up with, it really is a terrific drivers car. This 1988 example is a nicely presented coupe from the first year that launched the Reatta. Workmanship is very good, because it was built at a factory specially set up by GM to build these low volume personal luxury cars. In fact, while General Motors is known for mass production, this Reatta can almost be considered hand-crafted. So something this carefully made looks great in a pristine white. The swoopy design with folding headlights and a very cool wrap-around greenhouse is still handsome today. Its so unique that people will guess a value several times the asking price - a tribute to the cars styling and presence. Of course what really helps on this coupe is that it has been treated as a special car since day one. Averaging around 1,000 miles a year, it shows signs of being enjoyed, but not even the special Reatta five-spoke alloy wheels have seen the wrong side of a curb. Low mileage means less seat time, and so the burgundy leather interior shows far less wear than youd expect for its age. The great-looking bucket seats are power adjustable so you can make them armchair comfortable. Almost everything was standard in the Reatta, including power windows, power locks, tilt steering column, and cruise control. Your air conditioning, AM/FM/cassette stereo, and information on the car are all controlled through a touchscreen display in the center of the dash. Yes, you can get factory touchscreen controls in a car from 1988! One of Buicks most durable and well-developed engines, the fuel-injected 3.8-liter V6 is torquey, efficient, and reliable. The motor in this Reatta is original and unmodified, so it starts instantly, idles easily, and drives as it should. It shows all signs of proper maintenance, so you have a true gem under the hood. The Reatta was meant to be Buicks Mercedes SL competitor, so on the road it feel confident with even a little hint of a sporty exhaust. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes makes this a great car for long hauls or fun weekends on the backroads. This Reatta is a true collectable with less than 22,000 produced in total, and only around 4,700 examples were built in 1988, its inaugural year. So for those looking for a complete classic on a budget, your extraordinary Buick awaits. Call today!!!
