Buick LeSabre Hardtop For Sale
It’s finally time, I need to sell my old 1965 Buick LeSabre. It’s been a good car, I drove it for about 10 years. It belonged to an older gentleman, when he had to be moved to an assisted care facility his car was sold and I bought it. It had about 60K miles on it at the time.
The car now has about 130K miles on the original Buick 300 V8 engine with an AFB 4-Barrel Carburetor, a Dynaflow 300 automatic 2-speed transmission (Buick’s version of a Powerglide) with a switch-pitch torque converter. No A/C, drum brakes, original dash, seats, chrome, etc.. There are a few minor upgrades, HEI electronic ignition, radiator out of a 455 Oldsmobile, dual exhaust and Aluminum wheels. The carb has been jetted very lean and when it was running well I could get 20+ MPG on the highway.
Tires were new in the Spring of 2010 and only have about 2000 miles on them.
All the class is good and windows operate properly.
I have a friend who’s wife has a Mercedes Benz convertible and he used to complain that no one ever looked at their car, but heads would turn when driving mine.
The car does have a few problems and is currently not in driveable condition. The front centerlink needs to be replaced, it is available from Rare Parts through most major auto parts stores. The transmission leaks, I have a filter kit for it that I never put in, I don’t know if a new pan gasket will fix it or not. The transmission worked OK when I parked it but it has been sitting for about a year. It also has not been started in the last year, it ran fine when I parked it but I would recommend some new gas and maybe some carb cleaner.
The car also has some rust, mostly in the trunk floor area and where the rear body mounts are located. Everything else is pretty much normal wear and tear for a care of it’s age. There are a couple small dents that were there when I bought it, but nothing too major.
1965 Buick Price
I want this car to go to a good home. I’m asking $900, but will consider reasonable offers and possible trades. Please, no lowball offers. This price is basically salvage price plus what I can get for the wheels and tires on Craiglist. If I want to crush it I will tow it to the salvage yard myself.
The car is sold AS/IS, no warranty, you must pick up in Greeley Colorado. Delivery within a 50 mile radius may be available for a reasonable fee.
Below are some pictures, both inside and out, as well as closeups of all the rust spots I can find. Most of these pictures were taken last winter, but nothing has changed since that time.
