This Incredibly Clean 1990 Buick Reatta Is For Sale10
The Buick Reatta: the brand’s last convertible before the Buick Cascada joined the portfolio. The Reatta never quite achieved its sports car aspirations, but today, there’s no denying it’s actually a great looking car. And perhaps one of the cleanest examples in all of Michigan is up for sale.
Listed on Bring a Trailer, this 1990 Reatta convertible shows 52,000 miles on the odometer and looks to have been kept in pretty excellent condition over the past couple of decades. Like all examples, this Reatta features a 3.8-liter V6 engine that made 165 horsepower when new. Power heads to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.
The design has aged quite well in our eyes with a sleek front nose a forward-looking taillight design that spans the entire width of the rear. Futurism is apparent inside, too, with round digital gauges that replaced the bar readouts from previous model years. For 1990, Buick revised the cabin altogether for a rounded look
Other features include the manual soft-top with a glass window and rear defroster, power-adjustable leather seats, and automatic climate control.
Right now, the Reatta’s high bid is $4,900 with six days left of the auction. We’ll be mighty curious to see how this Buick oddball fairs.

I’ve got a ’90 Reatta Convertible with 43,000 miles. Black on Red. No one knows what I’m driving when I pull up in it!
Loved the later wheels. Sure wish that GM didn’t have transmission problems while it was in production. I always liked that car.
I was always amazed by those CRT touch screens these 80’s and early 90’s Buicks and Oldsmobiles had! I’d buy one with that option in a heartbeat!
I love my 1988 coupe! I find it a little un-nerving when I take it to the mechanic and no one there has ever heard of a Reatta.
I worked for a Buick dealer during that time. We called them the Regretta because you would soon regret the day you bought it. Beautiful cars but they were plagued with so many electrical gremlins. The CRT screen being the worst.
I feel the same way about my 1992 Allanté, which I’ve owned for 25 years. I always thought the Reatta was a unique design and I agree that it has aged very well.
Yes neat car but not one for the faint of heart if you go to restore it. The cost of the unique parts if you can find them for the car can be difficult.
At least it shared a lot of parts with the Riviera.
Many cars of the 80’s and 90’s will be difficult to restore due to the lack of parts and the number of plastic parts that did not hold up well.
Low mileage used models will be the way to go.
Worth say, $1500.00! That’s it.
One of those cars that had epic styling (just like the Cadillac Allante and Pontiac Fiero) and the last model year, once everything is just about perfect, it gets killed. I am surprised the Corvette last.
I bought a new Reatta when they first came out. I got the top of line with the display, white w/red interior. Every time it was cold outside the display would not work. I don’t know how many times I drove thirty miles to work, in the dark, as I could not turn the head lights on. I lived at the Buick dealer, but they never were able to resolve the problem. Sounds like people with Teslas. Good thing, I never got a ticket. Nice car that should have been tested more. Why, and where is the Riviera. GM has shown GREAT prototypes of Rivieras, but none have surfaced, Why? GM is the best to show the world great prototypes and then the competition builds them, not GM .
