The New Yorker was actually built on the G body, not the M.

Yeah I decided to bring it up because somebody else was saying that dashboards with fake wood have no class (whatever that means, it was the style of the time). The '73 GP used real wood, therefore I was wondering if that particular car falls in the category of "class".

Sorry that I couldn't stay on the topic of "1980s Chryslers", but it was also mentioned that none of the other domestic manufacturers from that era were any better.

According to my comment there is no "early run" on "limited production G- bodies" back 1979.

Again the G-body name was first used in 1982.

The only thing that was "limited" was the name on a top of the line Regal or Century.

Wrong, Chrysler's G platform was a Chrysler Laser and Dodge Daytona from '84-'93.

16th Mar 2016, 20:03

The G body platform ran from 1968 to 1988.

A interesting fact was a few years later Chrysler would sell this car as a Maserati TC.

Here is a site which sells parts for '79 Buicks, which does not agree with your assertions:

Are you kidding me? How long did it take you to find this false information? It lists a radiator for a Buick Lucerne dating back to 1939. Yeah those really existed. I think maybe I'll call them and order parts for a so called 1939 or even 1979 Lucerne... Keep trying.

17th Mar 2016, 13:20

And here's a site that lists FACTS of the model year run of a Buick Lucerne. No 1979 model here: www.nadaguides.com/Cars/Buick/Lucerne/Model-History

17th Mar 2016, 13:49

Yeah, that site just let me look up a radiator for a 1949 Buick Lucerne. So, according to you, that means that there was such a model. You want to believe that, go right ahead.

17th Mar 2016, 14:28

That particular company is clueless. A couple weeks ago I tried to order a radiator for my 2005 S-10 pickup and they told me there is no such thing.

17th Mar 2016, 19:52

The site lists a part number and price, and even that the part is in stock. If a 1979 Buick Lucerne radiator is in stock and sold as such, what are you saying that part actually goes to? Manufacturers would not make parts for cars which do not exist.

17th Mar 2016, 19:59

According to this site


There was a very limited run 1978-82 Lucerne.

17th Mar 2016, 20:19

Here is a 2nd link for confirmation:


And 3rd:


And 4th:


So, you may continue to argue despite having 4 sources which prove otherwise and convince others, but that can be your decision.

17th Mar 2016, 23:47

These roofing rails from a seller with perfect feedback fit '78, '79, and '80 Buick Lucernes. Try to explain that.


17th Mar 2016, 23:49

The 1980 Buick Lucerne curb weight was 3112 lbs. It also appears to have G-body framing as another reviewer was suggesting.


18th Mar 2016, 13:12

To the last 5 comments:

You can go ahead and dig up all the false information until you turn blue in the face.

It's not going to change the fact that there is no such thing as a Buick Lucerne before the model year 2006. Now find us a picture of one. Not gonna happen. Why? Again, because they don't exist.

The sad part is, you probably know this and are just getting a rise out of aggravating others. Give it up already.

18th Mar 2016, 13:19

Good work!

That site also lists the curb weight of a 2006 Olds Regency.

PLEASE explain how that is possible when the entire Olds division was discontinued in 2003. Or is this one of those fantasy cars that was produced in "very limited quantities"?

18th Mar 2016, 13:41

Um, this is the same link that was posted yesterday to prove that you are wrong. And of course it states nothing, that's right nothing about any Buick Lucerne manufactured in the late '70's - early '80's... Go figure.

18th Mar 2016, 14:41

Hilarious. The link you provide to "prove" your case also lists cars like a 2011 Studebaker President and 2005 International Scout II, along with dozens of others that nobody has ever seen.

So is that supposed to "prove" those also exist?

18th Mar 2016, 14:48

Hohum. The Genesis site just let me look up a radiator for a 1957 Buick Lucerne and yes it actually showed a part. Did not bother to check the other sites you provided as there is no doubt they will list parts for non-existent models as well; besides this is getting boring and turning into another one of those interminable Carsurvey threads that goes nowhere until Steven finally ends it.

18th Mar 2016, 16:58

This link states "The Buick Lucerne was introduced in 2006..."

How is this supposed to convince anyone that it was around earlier?

18th Mar 2016, 19:59

I think the general consensus here is that someone has been trying to provoke a reaction, probably for their own entertainment.

It's probably for the best that I lock this thread, as the discussion is likely to go downhill from here.
