Long and sleek, this is a real head-turner.
Too few young people today know Buick was a proud and stylish brand back in the day. You can do your part to educate using this beautiful 1961 Buick Electra 225. Originally from the west coast, it is extremely clean and boasts all kinds of desirable details. Considering its condition and overall memorable looks, a classic like this won’t last too long, so someone lucky will snatch it soon from Ideal Classic Cars.
Long and large, this Electra 225 makes any entrance dramatic. It showcases a decidedly 1960s styling, with absolutely not even a hint of tailfins, plenty of simple lines, and plenty of class. Four portholes on the front fenders also indicate this is the top-of-the-line Buick for 1961, surpassing even the LeSabre. Flaunting all of that in true style is the custom blue metallic paint, which looks absolutely electrifying next to the splendid chrome trim.
A custom tan interior is warm and inviting, providing a nice contrast to the body. Soft leather adorns the seats, dash topper, door panels, and even the trunk for a truly luxurious ambiance. Blue carpeting ties the interior to the exterior of the car, while factory gauges and controls keeps the vintage vibe strong.
Quite a few collectors would jump at the chance to own a Buick Electra 225, especially one like this with the correct 401ci Nailhead Wildcat V8 under the hood. It pulls strong and the automatic transmission keeps this ride flowing smoothly down the road, which is an amazing combination. Thanks to a performance dual exhaust system, you even get to enjoy the appropriate level of snarl as you lay down the hammer.
Plenty of other features make this Buick one to envy. That fresh convertible top is power-operated, as are the windows and driver’s seat. Factory air conditioning is a great thing to have for summer cruising. Power steering and power brakes make driving this ride less of a chore and more of a pleasure.
Even among the amazing vehicles in stock at Ideal Classic Cars, this Buick is a true standout. Contact the dealership for more details on this Electra 225 or to make an offer on it. They have financing options available and also consign cars, if you’re looking to sell.
