1965 Buick Electra 225 Custom
Unedited video of my '65 Buick Electra 225 Custom.
I have brand new radial whitewall tires & a donut for the Exhaust. Just have to finish waiting for spring
to arrive again so I can start driving it on the road (too much road salt
to drive it this winter.
To all that ask, I am not modifiying this car, as its in far too good a
condition to do anything to it, aside from tires & a headliner. This is not
a racecar, or ratrod. This is a classic from American car history. :)

Yet another 2 beautiful examples of 50s American motoring here,this time
from Buick. The first is a nice silver 59 4 door Invicta pillarless
followed by a gorgeous two tone green 60 LeSabre pillarless coupe. I've
never seen the silver one before,but it's rhd so i'm assuming it's been in
the country a while,that is of course assuming it's not an original
Australian delivered car. The coupe is a different story though,that car
has been at the shows here in Melb for many years now. Note the Chevy
dash!! GM used Chevy dashes to assemble the cars back then. But i beleive
this is a rhd conversion because we didn't get pillarless coupe or
convertible models in Australia. Filmed at the 2009 American Motoring
show,Sunday 5th April 2009 at Flemington racecourse in Flemington Melb Vic
Australia. Check my other videos for more great ol' classic cars.
1960 Buick Invicta Custom Hardtop Maroon
The Invicta was slotted between the LeSabre and the luxurious Electra.
Electra had a connection to the work of the ancient Greek tragedians
Sophocles and Euripides...who says Detroit executives didn't read!!
Invicta has the hint of invincibility...in fact, it's part of the fire
ant's name! This may seem "puffery", but I believe it to be an attempt to
elevate the Buick line to higher, classical levels. Behind every
successful car of the time, there was an elaborate advertising campaign.

1975 brought about changes in all of General Motors C-body cars. In 1975,
all Electra 225 coupes had fixed rear side windows and center posts. 1975
also brought along a newer front end and interior design. Rectangular
headlights became standard on all GM C-body cars, along with many others.
This supposedly would allow engineers to lower the front end to reduce wind
resistance, but this wasn't very apparent with the new design. The Electra
received a new metal "eggcrate" style grille, which covered most of the
front end, and wrapping under the headlights. The grille included running
lights on either side. There was a choice of a base model Electra 225 whose
trim and appointments were upgraded to the same level as the previous
year's Electra 225 Custom and an upscale Limited. The 1975 Electra was also
the longest Buick ever built at 233.4 inches (5,928 mm), which is over 19
feet. These cars dwarfed the newer front-wheel drive Electras and Park
Avenues in sheer size and weight.
Power windows and a power driver's seat became standard on all Electra
models in 1975. Also new to the standard equipment list were radial-ply
tires. The 1975 Electra was one of the first GM vehicles to offer an Air
Cushion Restraint System or "airbag".
Inside, a new flat instrument panel (shared with LeSabre, Estate Wagon and
Riviera) with horizontal sweep speedometer (silver facing with black
lettering) replaced the wrap-around cockpit dash of previous years and door
panel trim was revised. The speedometer was scaled back from 120 to 100 mph
(160 km/h) and kilometer readings were added.
Technical changes for 1975 included the addition of a catalytic converter
and electronic ignition to not only meet the stringent 1975 and later
emission requirements, but also extended routine maintenance intervals, and
improved fuel economy and driveability which was a must in the era
immediately following the 1973--74 energy crisis, but also spelled the end
of dual Exhaust systems and mandated
the use of unleaded gasoline as the converter could be rendered useless if
contaminated with lead. Axle ratios were also numerically lowered to aid in
improving gas mileage. The 455 four-barrel V8, now rated at 205 horsepower (153 kW), was
retained as the standard and only available engine.
Electra Limited Park Avenue
The Park Avenue, originally an interior comfort and appearance package,
gave buyers ultra-luxurious pillow-topped seating, a center console, velour
headliner, thicker carpet, and an upscale door panel design. The Park
Avenue's seats were designed by Flexsteel. This seating design was shared
by the Cadillac Sixty Special with the Talisman (1974--1976) option and
stayed with Park Avenue through the 1980 model year. Many Park Avenues were
built with the full size center console (unlike the Sixty Special's
Talisman's half console), which eliminated the 6th passenger, in the front
middle, between the driver and front passenger. 1975 also offered a more
luxurious Park Avenue Deluxe, which was sold only in 1975, and included
every option available on the Electra (posi-traction, 15" rallye sport
wheels, rear automatic leveling, etc.). The Park Avenue Deluxe was an
expensive option not popular with buyers; only 37 were built. The Park
Avenue would remain as the top level trim package through 1990. In 1991,
the Electra name would be dropped and Park Avenue would replace it as the
flagship Buick sedan.

What I have to say about the 2013 Lacrosse: When it was redesigned back in
2010, it got all of the headlines in the automotive industry. Now in its
2013 model year its actually one of the most underrated cars. The cabin on
the inside of the Lacrosse is where it stands out and there's is so much
attention to detail and the technology in the car is great with a Pandora
and Sticher radio interface. The control layout is cluttered, however it
has very great ergonomics. The Lacrosse also has a very nice subdue and
quiet ride, however there is some blindspot the backup camera does help and
you can get a Blind Spot Monitoring system. All in all great car from
Buick. Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
