Proof that not all barn finds are rare sports cars.
We see plenty of cars being sold that have been found in garages, barns and fields, and while some of these cars are rare and worth big bucks (Jaguar XKE, Hemi 'Cuda and LS6 Chevelle), most are just your typical classic car in need of a little love. This 1960 Buick LeSabre was recently rescued from its lengthy slumber, and now it's up for sale through Connors Motorcar Company.
Although details on this car are slim, it's easy to see this was no abandoned project. From the looks of it, this 1960 Buick LeSabre Sport Coupe was parked and kept away from the elements. Aside from a little dust and discolored whitewall tires, the body of this LeSabre seems to be in great shape, and the two-tone interior is even better.
One of the more interesting aspects of this car is the engine. The 1960 Buick LeSabre was offered with three versions of the 364 CID V8 engine – a 300-horsepower version with a four-barrel carb, a 250-horsepower version with a two-barrel carb running on premium gas and a 235-horsepower version with a two-barrel carb running on regular gas. While it's hard to confirm, the images of the car's engine appear to reveal a four-barrel carb, which would indicate the car's highest-output engine option.
The Buick LeSabre was introduced for the 1959 model year, and it was redesigned a year later for 1960. This change brought a new face with horizontally arranged headlights, a concave grille and toned down fender extensions about the headlights, but it still featured single taillights, big tail fins and a stylish bubbletop.
