1973 Buick LeSabre 350 c.i.d. 2 barrel carb. from North America
A very underrated safe, dependable vehicle that was fun to drive!
I only replaced the passenger side tie rods, and a small 4 inch split in the vinyl bench seat became about 9 inches long when I sold the car.
This was a fantastic car to own! It was a 2 door, lime green color with off-white/parchment interior and a black dash. I bought this car for $750, after the 2nd owner replaced the camshaft, which was said to be blown due to running the car with very low oil levels.
It had chrome Keystone Klassic 15 inch wheels with Kelly Supercharger white lettered 60 series tires all the way around!
The car was very dependable, and started right up in those brutal Chicago sub-zero temperatures, without it being in a garage.
Even though it was only a 2 barrel carburetor, you did go through the gas pretty fast, but then again, I had a heavy foot, racing my buddies in their somewhat similar cars like mid-70's Grand Prixs, Cutlasses and Delta 88's.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
