About

This was and is my first Buick. Purchased in 2007 over Internet, from the dealer that is dealing with classic cars only. I'm very satisfied about her condition (body is unbelievable good, no rust at all), but I'm not sure if I would do that again, without seeing & touching the car before ;-). Looks that I was simply lucky.....

Specs

On the pictures you can see GS trims, but this is not GS model - I bought the car like that. And I'm thinking to remove them, as I don't like to pretend something that is not true....

Factory Options

Automatic AC, corner lights, map light, remote trunk open from glove box, bucket seats with console, speed alert, cruise, daily odometer, power windows, power driver's seat, and of course power steering & brakes.

What I'm really missing is a power door lock :-(. When I'm in the car, belted to the seat and somebody wants to get in from passenger side, I must unbelt myself first, as I can not reach the passenger's door to unlock them. Maybe I'm too short ? :-D

Mods

None - all original. Except the radio (that I still have). Previous owner replaced the original radio (lucky he put it back in the trunk, for future all-originality preservation). Anyway new system is also kind of oldschool: it's a Craig front-rear stereo with external amplifier (hidden under the console). Plays very well. And what I've found out - it is model S601, exactly the same like Jake & Elwood had in their Bluesmobile :-D.
