Car description

I have for sale an un-restored '1976 Buick Electra Limited Landau Coupe' with leather interior, n very good condition with 63,000 original miles on the clock, unning the best, nd last, f the Buick 455cid engines (the much sought-after 'blue block' with the larger oil and water galleries for better flow through the engine) mated to a GM TH-400 automatic transmission. These coupes are becoming very rare because so many of them have been written off over the years in banger racing - the 4-door version wasn't suitable as they lacked the strengthening B-pillar.

I'm the second owner and have clear title in my name.

Looking at the quality of the body and low mileage, believe that the car was always garaged by the previous owner and basically only driven on weekends and to church, nd only in fine weather at that. There does not appear to have been any accident damage as all the panels look straight and I have found no evidence of color variation between body panels. I believe this is the original engine.

I purchased this vehicle as my classic 'travel America' car and it has fulfilled that roll admirably and has been a pleasure to drive.

This is a list of what I have had done to the vehicle, r I know to have been done by the previous owner:

- Viper car immobilizer / alarm system with remote

- 5x new Mastercraft whitewall tires

- new belts and hoses

- new brake hoses front and rear, lave cylinders and rear pads

- new water pump and thermostatand flush of the block and radiator

- new Fel-Pro blue sump gasket (previous owner - the rear main seal may have been replaced at the same time but I can't guarantee that)

- new rocker cover gaskets

- new O-ring between Distributor and block

- new fluids

- new battery

- new Centrelink

- new twin free-flowing cat-exhaust system

- new front shocks

- rear air shocks (previous owner)

- rust protection on the under-body and in the doors(previous owner at vehicle purchase)

- Re-building of the driver's door arm-rest and matching the passenger arm-rest to same

- The original radio has been replaced with a Kenwood KDC-X595 with Pioneer speakers in the doors and twin subs in the rear deck. The amp was not in the trunk when I bought it but all the extra wiring is still in place from the battery lead back for good thumping sound.

Since replacing the old exhaust system with the new free flowing system performance and fuel economy have improved significantly - although not the performance figures of the 1970 version it now gets up and boogies nicely (in part too because of the mainly highway 5,000 miles I've put onto it and the synthetic oil I'm running in the engine - any carbon or soot deposits from the little use previous, re being burned off and cleaned out).

Each mechanic who has worked on this vehicle has been very impressed at how well the vehicle has been looked after.

The only thing to do if you purchase this vehicle (apart from just enjoying driving it) would be to replace the vinyl Landau roof as it has split in parts around the base of the C-pillar and in the section under the rear window and repair the small rust blemishes starting to show at several points along the bottom edge of the vinyl (I have included pictures).

The paint work is in very good condition particularly considering it is nearly 40 years old - it is showing a few stone chips and loss of a patch of color from the driver's side headlight surround but that's about all (picture included). The leather seats are all in very good condition - the only blemishes are a scuff mark on the driver's side rear seat and a a light scuff mark on the passenger's side front seat (pictures included). The interior head liner is in excellent condition as are the sun visors and interior trim. The crash-pad has a crack at the RH end of the pad and some cracking in the speaker area (picture included). All the chrome-work is in excellent condition. All the electrical components work well too - electric windows zip up and down quickly and smoothly; the electric driver's seat works smoothly in all directions, he electric locks snap in and out quickly and the wipers work firmly and smoothly. Originally, here was also an electric aerial but at some time that has been replaced with a fixed aerial - the electric control switch is still in the dash though. All the lights and lenses are in excellent and undamaged condition and are all working. All the glass is in excellent condition.

The car is currently located near Madison, L.I am willing to ship worldwide..

I have driven this car to the Kissimmee Old Town car show several times and it always draws attention.
