1977 Buick LeSabre Custom from North America - Comments

Friends: I have had my 1977 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan many, many years. It has more than 325K miles on it. By far, this is not only the best car ever built by Man, it has proven to be the wisest and most rewarding purchase of my life. How many are aware of its being the first completely-computer designed auto built in the US? It is! I'm always looking to purchase other '77 LeSabres--regardless of model type, color, or condition--for driving and/or parts use. If you know of anyone--including yourself--who wishes to sell a 1977 LeSabre, please call or text 610-564-8113 anytime. My name is Jeff and I will have that phone number the rest of my life. If you read this comment 20 years from its date: Please Call! Where you are located is unimportant to me; we can get a deal completed. If you love your '77 as much as I love mine OR if you are having difficulties diagnosing mechanical problems, feel free to call or text. I know our car better than anyone alive. I have decades of hands-on experience! SAVE THIS!

While the car is a bit underpowered with the V6, it still isn't that bad. Perhaps you didn't keep yours in tip top shape as a $3 fuel filter could cause the low power you report. I just bought one of these that was stored for 6months+ and after a simple tune up (plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter, blowback filter) it runs like new. Prior to that it was very sluggish. A decent car if you like the floaty boats like I do.

My favorite car by far! I have not found another car to be as nice as this one. It rides and drives like I am on water, plenty of room. I love the looks of it (I don't think you can beat classics).

The only thing bad about it is that it is a little challenging to find parts. It is a gas hog with its 350 V8 Olds engine, but has plenty of power.

Hello Jeff, I have a 1977 LeSabre Custom and am trying to restore it. If you know where to get any parts for it, please let me know.

I am not the individual in question, but I do recommend you try CTC Auto Ranch in Denton Texas, if you are looking for decent body and trim parts; they have a wide variety of GM cars from the 70's, including LeSabres from '77,'78,'79.

This is not a popular car to restore (not yet anyway), but they are getting rare, and if you ask me, are well worth restoring.

Good luck.

With the Buick V6, these aren't very good cars. Rated at a meager 105 HP and 185 lb-ft of torque, they were obviously unsuited to the LeSabre's 2+ ton curb weight. That's also why the reviewer is probably having issues with the car as well.
