A car’s history is always at the back of any vintage car shopper’s mind. Finding out the maintenance and service backgrounds of a 40-, 50- or 60-year old car can be notoriously difficult, which is part of what makes this 1975 Buick LeSabre convertible currently for sale on Hemmings special.
To say this drop-top LeSabre has been meticulously maintained is an understatement. The current owner bought it new in 1975 and has had it serviced every year since. Furthermore, the car is described as being only a “light” summer driver and thus has only 89,775 original miles on the 350 V8.
It would be nearly impossible for any well-used car of this age to remain in such an impressive state of repair without a minor cosmetic overhaul. The owner says the car was sandblasted and repainted in the original shade of Arctic White 10 years ago, while a New Old Stock (NOS) front bumper, front bumper guards, rear bumper guards, wheel lip moldings and tail lamps were installed. The convertible top was also replaced and now includes a rear-window defogger.
Some minor updates were also applied to the 350 V8. A new radiator was installed, along with a new hose, thermostat, master cylinder, alternator, water pump and exhaust. The transmission was also rebuilt, but for reliability purposes, not because it had broken.
This is probably one of the most well-documented one-owner LeSabres currently in existence, and it could be yours for just $15,999. We’re not automotive valuation experts, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see its value spike in the not-so-distant future.
