Vehicle OverviewThe Lost and Found 1961 Buick LeSabre History
This original 1961 Buick LeSabre was purchased brand new at Ray Buick at the end of 1960. The original owner bought the vehicle for transportation in Chicago, using it to drive back and forth to check on job sites for the plumbing business he owned. As his business grew, he rewarded himself with a 1963 Lincoln. This Buick was then parked with 9,100 miles on it in his heated warehouse and covered with a tarp.He then drove his 1963 Lincoln for 8,600 miles and then parked it with this Buick in the warehouse while his next vehicle became a brand new Cadillac.
In late 2009 both stored cars were surprisingly rediscovered by the original owners family after he died.They had not seen these cars for over nearly 40 years and had assumed he traded or sold the cars Four Century's Ago.
The second owner bought the Buick from the original family and decided to bring her back to life. Since the car was 100 % original with just 9100 miles and still wearing all of its original line inspection stamps that he wanted to preserve this all original Buick. The motor and transmission were pulled,and the gaskets and fluids were flushed and changed.The motor and trans were then painted, reviving the car back to the way it looked in 1961.
The exterior of this Beautiful Buick has been repainted in its original 1-Year color of Cordovan Iridescence Metallic which actually has flecks of aluminum for an extremely brilliant metal flake finish not seen on other cars.In addition the front and rear bumpers have been re-cromed to show standards and this Proud Buick LeSabre is 100 percent original from bumper.The interior is original all the way down to the Star Light Carpeting (which is no longer available) for the exception of seat belts that were added from a 1964 Buick for safety.
