Originally intended to serve as the halo car for the Tri-Shield brand, the Buick Reatta two-seater boasted several state-of-the-art pieces of technology for the time. Now, a 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible in pristine condition has been listed for sale.
Posted for sale in Pennsylvania, this Reatta is certainly in great shape and almost looks as though it just rolled off the assembly line. A clean Carfax report shows several service records, 19 detailed reports, and no reported accidents or damage. Notably, this unit features just under 13,000 miles on the digital odometer, while the dealership is asking $20,000.
Starting with the exterior, we find a striking red paint job that is contrasted with black mirror caps, while chrome trimming is found throughout. Interestingly, the Reatta is the only Buick model to boast one-piece pop-up headlights, as the Riviera and Skylark only ever featured fixed headlamps with moveable covers.
Moving to the interior, the cabin features red twin bucket seats, red carpeting, power windows, and air conditioning. By far the most distinct aspect of this 1990 Reatta’s interior is the unique gauge cluster, which appears almost out of place in comparison to the rest of the vehicle.
It’s worth noting that early Reatta units also featured a touchscreen computer “infotainment” system.
In regard to the powertrain department, output is delivered by a naturally aspirated 3.8L V6 gasoline engine that develops 165 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque. These ponies are directed to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission.
Other performance goodies include a fully independent suspension setup and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS.
Aside from a blemish here or there, this 1990 Buick Reatta is appears to be in fantastic shape, however, the $20,000 asking price could get one into a vehicle more than 20 years younger.
