As Seen on Craigslist – 1966 Buick Electra 225

Normally I make fun of folks who can’t get the entire car in one picture when posting on Craigslist, but I’ll make an exception here because the car is so big you probably need a panoramic lens to capture it all.  I’m not normally a fan of red cars, but it works on this boat and it looks like it’s in good shape.  There are some cosmetic issues and it looks to me like the car has been sitting for a while – the tires are oxidized and sunken into the ground a bit and the grille looks funky – but if it’s rust free it would make a great summer cruiser at this price.  The lack of interior pictures may be cause for alarm, especially with a convertible – there might be more mold in there than a college dorm shower.  That said, interiors are generally easy and often inexpensive to repair, so I’d rather have that than a rusty mess to deal with.  Check behind the back seat and under the carpet, and get ready for Spring.
