For the person who has everything, this classy American will certainly either impress the neighbours, or make them incredibly jealous! Its innovative design details, extraordinary really for a car produced in 1962, all remain intact and the motor car boasts power ‘everything’, including its hood which operates well. Despite its not so diminutive proportions, the Electra is very easy to drive, as its current female custodian of twenty three years will testify.

The Buick spent its formative years in the USA and was imported from California in 1995 to be used as a promotional vehicle. The vendor was gifted the motor car when the promotion ended but due to business commitments, it has been used sparingly and so is now offered for the first time to the UK market.

Finished in Ivory White with a complimentary white hood and black interior, although the motor car is not a concours queen, it remains in a presentable and usable condition. Cosmetically, the upholstery could be improved, but mechanically, it has no known faults and we can assure prospective purchasers that the Wildcat 441ci V8 engine positively purrs and is ready to cruise!

The history folder includes the V5C registration certificate and its replacement, old road tax discs and MOT test certificates and the original California licence plate.
