1972 Buick Electra 225 455 from North America
Best car I've owned
Had some electrical goblins! Previous owner hacked some of the wiring.
Bench seat was a little worn on the drivers side.
Flywheel had a few teeth missing. Sometimes I'd have to grab a belt and yank to turn the motor over enough for the starter to grab some teeth. Put a new flywheel in and was good to go.
Rebuilt the carb soon after I got the car. Ran, but ran rough.
Trunk weatherstripping leaked and trunk would collect water.
I bought this car a few weeks after high school for 700 dollars! Put a lot of miles on her and she did good.
Replacing the flywheel was about the only major repair I had to do.
Didn't handle very good, but I didn't expect it to.
Got 22 mpg on the highway with a little tuning! Really impressed me.
I took the AC compressor off and I wish I hadn't. It probably still worked!
Probably the best car I've owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
