The Buick Electra was the one to go for. With its iconic looks and class, the Electra ensured the old-school land yachts lived to fight another day and stand out from the crowd.

The automotive world collectively grieved when we decided to retire the theatrical fashion of pre-'70s vehicles. As the days of the compact car dawned, the big road locomotives that made a striking road presence with their style and character were no longer in vogue. However, today, they are unmistakable collector cars that draw attention wherever they go. Buick was one of the brands that delivered true classic cars representing the best American automotive engineering and design. Up for sale here is a stunning 1958 Buick Limited, which is one such beauty that has been lovingly refurbished inside and out. Its dedicated owner claims to have invested roughly 60-70k in this car over the last four years, and the receipts are available.
The Electra was Buick’s nameplate from 1959 to 1990 for its flagship, full-size luxury car offering. Taking over from the Roadmaster, six generations of Electra would see the light of day. The name Electra was based on a person, Texan sculptor and socialite Electra Waggoner Biggs. No doubt it was also helped by the fact that Electra was the sister-in-law of then-GM President Harlow H. Curtice. This 1974 Buick Electra 225 Limited that we've got for sale is a fourth-generation example with 100,497 miles on the odometer and a slice of what Seventies luxury motoring was like.
The Special was built for several decades, undergoing multiple facelifts, including this particular iteration of a 1964 Buick Special Restomod.

Packed with plenty of modern conveniences, a slick paint job, and a rebuilt engine that the current owner reports has less than 3,000 miles on the clock, very little can be said to turn down this special Buick.

Buick started using the GS, or Gran Sport tag on several models since 1965, to denote, as you guessed it, sporty yet luxurious cars from the General Motors marque. Buick sat second in the luxury hierarchy at the time, with Cadillac ahead of it, but the latter didn’t make sporty machines, so that mantle was Buick’s for the taking. Models such as this 1969 Buick GS 400 Convertible brought fun to drive characteristics to the luxury car brigade, and this particular car sports a reported numbers-matching motor and transmission. Two keys, for the ignition and trunk are included in the sale.
One of the first American marquees was Buick when it was established in 1899 by David Dunbar Buick. General Motors was established in 1908 thanks to Buicks popularity. Later, Buick became GM’s premium brand targeting the wealthy of North America. The only marquee above Buick was the upscale luxury brand Cadillac. As of today, Buick’s largest market is China, with almost 80% of sales originating from there. In 1965 Buick introduced the “Gran Sport” name for high-performance cars built by Buick. The beauty of the GS cars was that they were a perfect blend of high-performance, luxury appointments and comfort. The first GS was the Skylark in 1965, which was eventually replaced by the Gran Sport 455. A rare chance to own a magnificent piece of performance history is now at hand in the form of this 1970 Buick GS 455 convertible with 91,287 miles on the odometer and the best part being that the seller reports it to be a one owner car.
Ford’s Thunderbird kicked off the personal luxury car craze, also known as the Grand Tourer. Buick jumped on the bandwagon with the Riviera in 1963. Named after the picturesque French Riviera, the nameplate would see a run until 1993, with a short resurrection from 1995 to 1999.

The Skylark marque was synonymous with luxury and class. The nameplate became a standalone lineup of cars during 1964 but didn't really fit in with the times.

Before the Regal, Buick had already proven their capability to build personal luxury cars, being the very first in the entire GM division to do so when they released the Riviera in 1963. Buick however felt like they could do better, and introduced the first generation Regal in 1973. While the car was successful, it would forever go on to live in the shadows of its predecessor, with the second-gen Regal becoming one of the most popular cars to ever come out of a Buick factory. This generation of the Regal lasted 10 years and was offered in an array of trim levels, one of which was the Buick Regal Limited as featured here.

It’s the Sixties and the whole ‘personal luxury car’ craze has kicked off thanks to the Ford Thunderbird in 1955. Manufacturers are hopping onto the bandwagon, and the Riviera was Buick’s entry. Produced between 1963 and 1999 over eight generations, the name Riviera means Coastline in Latin, and over 1.1 million were sold throughout its lifetime.

It comes from Georgia with 83,185 miles on the odometer and is reported to be a matching engine and transmission-numbers car that has been refreshed over the years. 1970 was the last year of the second generation and the model year received a restyle that included the quad headlamps being almost flush-mounted, redesigned front bumper, and vertical bar grille among others, before the third generation replaced it in 1971 with changed styling once again. This makes the 1970 model particularly desirable, as despite the fact that approximately 37,000 were sold, far fewer are alive and running today.

Over the years the General Motors brand has churned out possibly some of the most interesting cars ever made. Being the roof for many American automotive powerhouses it’s definitely hard for a singular vehicle to stand out amongst the ocean of greats. The Buick GS is one of the greats. The GS marque stood for Gran Sport and arose from Buick’s ideals of designing and producing cars which were not only fun but also luxurious as well. With Cadillac being the golden standard in terms of producing luxurious cars the Gran sport name was used since 1965 on many of Buicks models to showcase tire shredding performance with a touch of luxury. Bask In this 1971 Buick GS 455 Convertible’s monstrous performance and comfort that we have in inventory right now.

Today, whilst General Motors is considered a powerhouse company with a myriad of brands under its umbrella, and a pioneer in American automotive manufacturing, the brand that helped GM become just that is Buick. Buick, started by David Dunbar Buick was the company that established General Motors in 1908. For a long time, Buick was considered and marketed as a premium automobile brand, and it sat just below the luxurious Cadillac line. As of date Buick is America’s oldest car manufacturer, as well as being among the oldest in the world. When Buick released the Master Six Series 40 and Series 50 in the 1920s, it was a revolutionary vehicle with many world firsts. Our subject vehicle is a post-war 1922 Buick D-45 from Florida. It is reported to have undergone a full frame-off restoration fifteen years ago and is now up for grabs to a discerning and lucky owner who will appreciate its vintage and history.
If the word association of Buick and “Grand National” doesn’t get your blood pumping, then we suggest you may want to turn in your American-petrol head card at the first opportunity. The Buick Regal Grand National is a muscle car that upended the industry in an era of tightening emissions regulations thanks to its use of a smaller V6 engine with a turbo. This GNX (which stands for Grand National Experimental) run-out special edition was created for the Grand National’s final production year. And it’s no exaggeration to say that Buick pulled out all the stops. A limited run of only 547 cars were transformed by none other than McLaren, with a host of upgrades under the hood. This 1987 Buick Grand National GNX that is for sale has reportedly been garage kept and maintains the original mileage.
Being a product of one of the first American Automobile manufacturers typically means that any Buick is steeped in history. And while that’s no doubt the case with this 1955 Special, it can also be said the near eight-decade old body shell has had some life injected into it. This resto-mod project has reportedly had no expense spared. Under the hood is a wildly more powerful engine, with an output figure on par with modern-day supercars. Inside is a brand new custom interior, while everything else has been painstakingly brought up to speed so as to handle all the extra power. And with just 75 miles on the clock since the build completion, this Buick Special is practically new.
