Buick Electra (1973) – Into the Wild

In the Buick showroom you could find the model name Electra from 1959 to 1990. Over the years, the Electra appeared in six successive generations and various body styles. Of these, the sedan was by far the most popular. The Electra that can be seen in these photos dates from 1973 and is therefore one of the fourth generation. The fact that the Electra was quite high in the market is apparent from its length. The sedan is more than 5.8 meters long! It is particularly striking that the trunk is almost as long as the hood. An aircraft carrier runway almost pales in comparison. Buick Electra Under the hood of this Electra is a 7.5-liter V8, which delivered a power of approximately 315 hp. So his green aspirations actually stop with the body color. With current fuel prices, such a power source must be a real disaster for the wallet, but thanks to an LPG installation, the fuel costs in this case are still somewhat limited. In any case, you have plenty of space in the huge trunk to mount a gas tank. That must be a big thing to get a little far, because the V8 jumps generously with the gas supply. It was not until 2001 that the Electra came to the Netherlands, so whether the green color was there from the start is not clear. It certainly gives it a striking appearance, as far as you could overlook the Electra. Since its arrival in the Netherlands, the Buick has had quite a row of private owners on paper, the last of which has owned it since October last year. A brave choice in these expensive times. It does not seem to be a bad buy, because this example appears to be in excellent condition. Thanks to AutoWeek forum user louisznl (Flickr) for uploading the UAZ-452. Spotted a unique car yourself?
