Original leather interior also accompanies the options along with re-chromed exterior pieces. With only 6,746 convertibles built, there are not many surviving today. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to acquire a piece of Americana. There is nothing more nostalgic than a huge, fully loaded Buick convertible of this era. A dream to drive with its factory high performance engine and luxury options, this deuce offers no disappointments and is a refreshing change from all the other “cookie cutter” convertibles available today. Unique and appealing, the styling of the 1960 Electra 225 is and will remain timeless. The 1960 Electra was considered to be the most luxurious of the line-up that production year. Beneath the 1960 Buick Electra was the 401 CID V8 introduced in 1959, dubbed Wildcat 445 (to denote its torque rating) and churning out 325 horsepower. Electra’s came with power brakes and steering, but this year’s dual exhaust system switched to a single transverse muffler. Limited demand and high cost nixed the Triple Turbine Drive transmission that had been optional since 1958. In its place, a new Turbine Drive transmission featured a variable-pitch fluid-control mechanism that replaced ordinary gears. Buick Transmission Engineer Harold Fischer explained to Car Life that “for maximum acceleration…you don’t shift gears, you shift a constantly flowing stream of oil.” Instead of the customary “neck-snapping” downshift when passing, the magazine reported “a smooth surge like a rising wave.” Other magic went inside, namely, a new Mirromagic instrument panel that let the driver read the bar-style speedometer and warning lights through an adjustable tilting mirror. More important to passengers was the lowering of the central tunnel and floor pan, which added leg room. Back doors opened wider than before, doubtless a concession to the age of the typical Electra customer. A smooth ride had long been a Buick trademark, so the company promoted Electra’s Torque Tube driveline, full-coil suspension, and solid K-braced frame. The 1960 Buick Electra was softer and more subdued than its 1959 predecessor. But the tailfins, VentiPorts, and a “Wildcat 445” engine, the sedan was still a highly stylized, not to mention powerful, luxury tourer.

Financing

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


Terms available up to 144 Months
