1964 Buick Electra 225

Super Turbine 400 automatic
The Buick Electra was a full-sized premium automobile built by the Buick division of General Motors, which utilized the Electra name in various manners between 1959 and 1990. The Electra 225 nameplate was a nod to the car’s overall length of more than 225 inches, earning it the street name “deuce and a quarter.” Buicks were just one step beneath Cadillacs in terms of luxury and often came highly optioned.

This car was purchased new in Rockford, IL, by a farming couple with no children. In the fall of 1968, the husband unexpectedly passed away and his widow had long since given up driving. However, she lived another 28 years, during which time the car sat in the garage untouched, but registered and fully insured. The current owner acquired this car in 1996 with only 19,000 miles on it. It’s largely in original condition, including the original interior, and around 40% of the paint is also original. This car has factory air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and antenna, tilt steering, and remote trunk release.
