In next to New condition, there is nothing to do and nothing is needed. Absolutely Nothing is needed!!!
The Buick Electra 225 was Buicks top of the line full size luxury car since its debut in 1959 and remained #1 until it was discontinued in 1990. For years prior to 1959, the Super and the Roadmaster constituted the upper echelon of Buick’s lineup. Both were renamed the Electra and the Electra 225 respectively until the Electra was discontinued. This made the Buick Electra 225 a premier luxury car for the next three decades. The Electra 225 nameplate came about due to the cars overall length of over 225 inches (18′ 8″) earning it the street name, the “deuce and a quarter.”
This 2 owner car was purchased by Mr J. Dunigan of Lexington Kentucky in April of 1972 by Baker Williams Buick of Berea KY for a hefty $7814.60. Mr Dunigan kept his car in flawless condition until it was sold to a client of FMC in 2013, 41 years later. The second owner kept it in his private collection in a climate controlled garage where it was driven less than 500 miles since then.
Ventiports The four port holes, called VentiPorts on each side of the top of the line Buick, started in the early 50’s and initially signified the number of cylinders in each car. The Roadmaster had the V8 and had four Ventiports on each side of the car while the Super had a six cylinder with only three Ventiports on each side. The Ventiports were briefly discontinued for 1959 but were reinstated again in 1960. In 1960, the Ventiports were changed to signify the class of vehicle rather than the number of cylinders with the Electra 225 having four on each side while lesser models had three per side. The ’72 model was the fourth generation of the Electra 225 and continued with four Ventiports per side. In 1972, The “Limited” was the top of the line vehicle in the Electra 225 class.
The body is near perfect and paint and body parts are all original. There is one microscopic mark on the car which is shown in the photos. Other than that, the car is flawless. No dings, no dents and no rust ever. Trim and chrome are perfect. All glass is original and perfect.
The interior is absolutely a work of art and in flawless condition. On top of that, every single one of the many options and gauges all work perfectly. The options list is impressive starting with the expected, power steering, power disc brakes, power windows, power 8-way seats driver & passenger, automatic Climate Control air conditioning, remote mirrors and tilt wheel moving on to AM-FM stereo 8-track player, trip counter, speed alert, heated glass rear defogger, power door locks, power trunk release, cruise control, cornering lights and the most advanced option of the day, the fiber optic directional and backup indicator lights on the front fenders and more. Again, every single option and gauge works perfectly.
The 455ci engine is all original including the 4bbl carburetor as shown. The engine is rated at 250hp which moves this beauty easily. Best of all, the mileage is documented at 47300 actual miles.
