Regarding This Vehicle

1966 Buick Electra 225 Thin-pillar Sedan For Sale

Very sharp, all original 1966 Buick Electra 225 Thin-pillar Sedan for sale, with 41,000-miles example!  Super solid, and fully optioned with air conditioning, power windows, power seat, power steering & brakes, tilt steering wheel, door edge guards, and more!  A super example of Buick’s “Fully Tuned” vehicle and considered the best of 1966! 

The Buick Electra was introduced to the public in 1959 and carried the brand through 1990 replacing the Roadmaster and Limited models upon introduction. The 225 moniker was added to represent the 225-inch length of the car overall, earning the nickname “deuce and a quarter” by enthusiasts. With styling changes over its 30-year run, it was 1965 when the chassis design went to a perimeter frame, exiting the traditional x-frame used from 1961. This made for a lighter car and the need for additional tuning to the suspension. For 1966, the entire advertising promotion lead with the Electra being emphasized as the “Tuned Buick”; tuned performance, tuned ride, tuned handling, and most importantly, tuned styling! It would be the final year of the ever-popular Buick Wildcat 401ci Nailhead V8 engine as well. These cars represent a unique era in Buick production and are among the best years for mid-1960’s American car collectors.   Class, style, power, and comfort all rolled into one!

We are delighted to offer this 1966 Buick Electra 225 Thin-pillar 4-door sedan finished in factory code correct Astro Blue overall original Blue cloth/vinyl combination interior! These sedans are unique by showcasing its structural soundness with a small pillar between the front & rear doors, leaving the four windows on each door absent of a traditional frame, a unique feature among 4-door sedans. Standard features on any Electra included the Wildcat V8 producing 325 horsepower and 445 ft. lbs. of torque, Super Turbine 3-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and additional safety items such as padded dash, reverse lights, front & rear seatbelts, 2-speed windshield wipers with washer system, and more! You will find additional optional equipment on our vehicle to include air conditioning, tilt steering column, power windows, 8-way power seat, Sonomatic AM radio with power antenna, interior courtesy lights, glove box light, day/night rearview mirror, all Soft-Ray tinted glass, door edge guards, and fender skirts.

Our wonderful example survives with all original LOF window glass, all original body panels, all original interior carpet & seating upholstery, original trunk equipment, and all factory chrome & trim. Showing only 41,589 actual miles, this Electra continues to run and drive with exceptional ease! We have taken the liberty to recently change the oil & oil filter, replace the air conditioning compressor clutch, convert the a/c system to R134a refrigerant, replace all door window glass weatherstripping, under hood insulation, and other various items to freshen this 50-year-old collector worthy sedan. We have fully detailed the engine compartment for obvious reasons to match the exterior and interior appearance, all proudly presentable for local shows while remaining driver friendly and original. Having driven the car regularly here in St. Louis, we are confident in the cars ability to do exactly as asked. It provides cold a/c, fully operational power accessories, and excellent road manners in all city and highway environments. For full disclosure, the factory clock & radio are no longer functional, although the power antenna is functional. We hope to find a Buick enthusiast excited to own a solid, low mileage Electra 225 absolutely ready to enjoy! Please call with any questions or to schedule an opportunity to view in person. Thanks for looking!
