Jane his wife: Few new-age Buick buyers would ever dream of their coveted tri-shield adorning an aggressive design like this. Fewer still would ever dream of accenting that aggressive design with a coat of Lexus Nautical Blue, but that's exactly what this restorer did. And today, in typical 60s Detroit fashion, Buick's first generation LeSabre is adorned with long surfaces and sharp creases that are incredibly hard to make straight. All these miles of delta fins, and fender over hangings with the rear fins starting at the beginnings of the door sills. Now that's serious fins! Fortunately, the metal on this super cool cruiser has been worked and it is looking good. There are some crosshatches from sanding of the body filler that can be seen when inspecting the car closely. These marks are noted throughout, but the filler has been used mainly to make these difficult lines straight, and rust is and never was an issue on this sexy body. Wrap-around front and rear glass, with a white hardtop above. We have dual headlights that protrude from the beginnings of the front fenders framed in the center with a shaver style grille and the trio shield in the very center, and a beautifully chromed bumper bellow which wraps around the fenders, this car looks like not only can it drive you down the road in Buick style but may even be able to fly. Bringing up the rear of the car is a spacious trunk sandwiched in between those lovely delta fins which provide the above framing for the round rocket nose styled taillights. Another wonderfully shiny bumper below to comb your hair or brush your teeth and tri-shield with B U I C K badging on the trunk lid and 50's styled LeSabre type font on the right. 20-inch wild looking Ridler wheels with low profile tires are on all 4 corners giving this early Mid Century modern car a contemporary twist. Eye candy fer sur.
Daughter Judy: Not unlike his overspending, raging hormone teen daughter, the interior has spared no expense when it comes to modern looking with plenty of space, looking like it's from outer space. Parchment white vinyl benches, the front being split, and the rear custom stitched with a tri shield in its center, these chairs are pristine. Door panels also have the parchment in tuck and roll with some lower carpeting and more custom embroidery with that groovy font saying LeSabre. The dash uses a fine mix of pleated and chromed vinyl panels that create a point as they cascade down from the speedo cluster. The speedo is one of those cool rolling rods as one increases speed it moves horizontally past the speeds. Within the "point" of the dash are some nifty square Mirror Magic gauges and neat knobs and pulls for various comfort controls. A big beautiful parchment steering wheel fronts the dash and a lower brushed stainless panel with the transmission selectors in round bezels and a gun sight indicating which position the transmission is in. The original Sonomagic radio resides to the steering wheel stage right when the lower panel dies into the passenger glove box panel. Like new tan plush carpeting and the headliner is near perfect.
His Boy Elroy: And just as feisty, and full of energy, bathed in gold, the engine block, valve coverings, and intake manifold are bedazzling. You are ooohing and ahhhing at 364 cubes in V8 form and not knowing if it is original to the car but correct for this car. A single 2-barrel carb feeds this golden mill, and a Dynaflow Turbine Drive 2 speed automatic tranny is on back. Way back 3.07 gearing spins the rear rubbers. For the exhale, a dual Flowmaster exhaust system is now on. As efficient, and purrs like a kitten just like when it was driven off the showroom floor. Off to old school. And all in a near perfect engine bay housing.
