Classic Car Facts

Buick’s Electra was always a car of distinction.  Always near the top of the Buick line, it exemplified a unique combination of styling, luxury, and elegance that appealed to the well-heeled.  Perhaps Buick said it best in 1979:  “There are wools, and then there’s Scottish cashmere.  There are full-size automobiles, and then there’s Buick Electra.”

This stunning unrestored 1979 Buick Electra Limited Coupe is finished in Dark Brown Metallic and features an optional heavily padded landau roof in Tan, optional wide body side moldings and pinstripes.  Its original finish has a beautiful luster that is further accentuated by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition.  Buick’s exclusive porthole trim and wire wheel covers add additional notes of distinction.

The all original interior is similarly refined, featuring luxurious crushed velour seating areas in Tan.  Its commanding dashboard features handsome silver-backed instrumentation and rich wood appliqués.  The optional 6-way power driver’s seat and tilt steering column will have drivers of all sizes comfortable at the helm.  The seating areas, carpeting, dashboard, headliner and door panels are all in excellent condition.

You will also appreciate this car’s long list of standard and optional comfort and convenience items, including the following:

  • Power windows
  • Power door locks
  • 6-way power driver’s seat
  • Tilt steering column
  • Cruise Master speed control
  • 3-speed windshield wipers with low speed delay feature
  • Electric rear window defogger
  • Electric clock
  • Dome reading lamp
  • Passenger lighted vanity mirror
  • Front & Rear bumper guards
  • Wide protective body side moldings
  • Front & rear factory floor mats
  • Right hand side remote-control rear-view mirror
  • AM/FM stereo radio with 8-track
  • Air conditioning

All power options work as they should, including the ice-cold air conditioning.

Powered by an optional 4-barrel carbureted 403 CID V-8 and a 3-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain has a smoothness and responsiveness that make it a pleasure to drive.  This much sought-after engine was the last big block to power a full-size Buick; it was no longer available in 1980 or since. Having just 31,100 original miles, this meticulously maintained car runs and drives as well as it looks.

A two-owner car since new, this Electra Limited was original sold from Toth Buick of Berea, Ohio.  The original window sticker, dealer sales invoice, owner’s manuals and build sheet will be included with sale.  Lovers of originality will also appreciate this car’s original keys and dealer key chain from Toth Buick.

If a stunningly beautiful and well cared for 1970s Electra with the power to match is what you desire, this is the car for you!
