A like-new 1988 Buick Electra Park Avenue with just over 3,000 miles on the odometer recently appeared for sale via an online auction site.
This mint Buick Electra Park Avenue was listed for sale on Bring-A-Trailer earlier this week. According to the listing, the seller acquired this low-mileage Buick sedan in 2019 from the original owner’s grandson and has driven it sparingly in the time since, putting just 300 miles on it.
Power in the Electra comes from a naturally aspirated 3.8L V6 engine, which sends power to the front wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission. The battery, crankshaft position sensor and air conditioning compressor were all recently replaced and it also underwent a recent oil change. There are a few small problems with the vehicle, including a non-functioning fuel gauge, a sagging headliner and some small corrosion holes in the muffler. The vehicle is also being sold with the radiator removed, but the radiator will be included in the sale and can easily be re-installed by the new owner. The FM radio is also a bit staticky, the seller says, and the tape player may not be functioning properly.
The Buick Electra was positioned as a relatively affordable daily driver, so there’s no very many left in good condition like this one. Considering the seller purchased this vehicle from the original owner’s grandson, we can only assume that this vehicle was only driven so sparingly because it was owned by an elderly person for most of its life. A clean Carfax report and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name are included in the sale, giving interested parties some peace of mind when bidding on this 33-year old Buick four-door.
Bidding on this Electra sits at a surprisingly high $5,000 as of this writing with still five days left to bid. Check out the listing here for more information and photos.
