I love it


Head liner sags.

Doors only open from the outside.

No AC.

Have a tick.

Broken tail light.

Vinyl top needs to be replaced.

General Comments:

I love it so far. It needs a tune up and a radio, but it is my first HUGE car. I actually parked my 2000 Grand Am and just drive this.

1977 Buick Electra 225 Sedan 305 V8 from North America


Like driving a couch on wheels


My head gaskets blew at 55000 odd miles about two weeks after I got it.

Drivers side window mechanism is worn and doesn't always go up or down.

Back passenger window motor doesn't work.

The automatic antenna motor doesn't work.

Hood needs repainted. And need to touch up tiny dime sized rust spots in a few places on the car.

Front brakes need to be replaced soon, as does the muffler.

General Comments:

This car handles, and can get going pretty well for a big boat of a car.

Looks best with white wall tires.

Mine just has AM-FM stereo system.

It has side lights when you kick on the turn signal, so you can see where you're turning better at night. Which I was told came as a extra feature.

Head liner was replaced before I got her. Interior is very nice other than a couple stains I haven't tried to get out yet, and a couple cracks in the drivers side door vinyl.

Power seats, power windows, power steering.

It's just a great car, big green beast... I've gotten a lot of looks driving it. It's ideal for the large man, since I'm 6'5 it's ideal, other than I have to watch the hazard lights, because I hit it with my knee on the way out of the car from time to time.

Gas mileage isn't the best, but the comfort and style overwhelms that... Mostly.

I'm also looking for the 8-track player that would come with this model, if anyone has one or knows where I can get one, please comment.

The '77 was the first year for the downsized Electra; the last real "boats" were the '76 models.

You can find 8-track players all over e-bay, they are a dime a dozen.

The best car ever!


When I bought the car about 2 years ago, the car hadn't had a tune up done to it in about, well, who knows how long. So I had to do the spark plugs, change the oil, and the air filter... Of course the oil regularly gets changed.. But so far, I have replaced the heater hoses, spark plugs, all the brakes, thermostat, and alternator. Not too bad for a car I bought for only $500!

Oh, and I put some new tires on it.

But now, *****big sigh***** my Electra sits.. : (It needs its transmission rebuilt, and that's gonna cost me some money I don't have right now... Anyone have a tranny for my beast?!

General Comments:

This car is fast! Almost everyone who sees this car automatically assumes it's a slow heap o'junk. Far from the truth!

I have slept in the car comfortably, that's how roomy this thing is. Even if it uses more gas than a modern day car, I would definitely recommend this car if you planned to drive cross country.. you could even hitch a trailer to it if you really wanted to!
