EXCLUSIVE: 1973 Buick Electra 225 Survivor

It’s taken a little while, but Yvonne B has finally been able to get new photos of her son’s cars. This 1973 Buick Electra 225 four-door has been parked for a number of years, but looks like it could be a good find if you are looking for a big American classic that has room for friends and family! It’s currently parked in a storage facility and needs to be moved out sooner rather than later, so take a closer look and contact her via the form below.

Yvonne believes this Buick is in highly original. It’s packing the big 455 cui 4-barrel V8, which is rated at 250 (net) HP. Horsepower is great, but it’s torque that’s really important with a car this size and the 455 produces plenty of it.

The interior is really the jewel of this big Buick! You certainly won’t have any issues with not having enough legroom in this one. It looks like it needs a little work and some cleaning, but is in usable condition as is. If you want a comfortable land yacht that isn’t a Cadillac, this Buick is a great option!

Yvonne and her nephew Obbie just made the drive to where the cars are being stored to take photos and they managed to get lots of great photos of the cars. So, be sure to take a closer look at the photos of this Electra below and don’t forget to make Yvonne an offer!

    There were 2 or 3 levels of Electra in 73.

    I think the top was a Limited. No comments on which trim level this one is.

    NADA guides says $5900 on top number one shape.

    This has been parked a while so probably a non runner.

    While in nice shape , I see no demand.

    If it was running with decent tires maybe 2 grand ?

    A road car for the Great American Highway does not get any better
    than a Buick Deuce and a Quarter. The best. Period.

    This one is beautiful. Love those wheels. Amazing condition. If I bought it I’d have to sleep in the backseat per my wife..on second thought the backseat probably would sleep pretty good!

    My father bought one new, it was a gold 2 door, within a month, it got a new motor. It actually had a few motors bought right through GM until 1976 with they junked it. It probably , no it was the worst car they ever bought and from that point on they switched to a Ford LTD which they only had one and it was a dependable car, they traded it in 1983 for a MB turbo 300D, that 300D turned out to be not such a good car either.

    For an old fart like me with chronic sciatica, this car would be a godsend.
    Used to love how they’d float down the
    road gobbling up the miles as they went.
    They were big, comfortable cruisers and
    oh how I want this one! My back would be thanking me mile after glorious mile.
    Sorry, but the car’s they make today will
    never measure up to something like this–
    not even Mom’s ’01 LeSabre which is quite comfy for a modern car. When it
    comes to true comfort, nothing else will
    do, gas prices be damned!

    As a little kid, my grandfather had a green 225 and I thought it was the coolest car ever because it was so huge! I don’t think my feet could reach the dash (pre-child car seats of course). Definitely a land yacht from days gone by. I would always ask to ride in this car up until I could see over the dash of his ’72 Cutlass Supreme.
