About Buick Electra

The Electra name was used by Buick from 1959 till 1990. The full-size (also called the boat-size) premium automobile has come through 6 generations and got numerous exterior as well as interior design alterations. The Buick Electra was introduced to replace the Roadmaster. The prime Electra 225 was named for its length of 225 inches. The Electra shared the same 126-inch wheelbase with the Roadmaster. It was offered in various body styles: 4-door 4-window hardtop, 4-door 6-window sedan, 2-door hardtop, 2-door convertible, and a 2-door coupe. The car's measurements were changing with each successive Electra, growing a couple inches shorter and narrower. The 1975 Electra with the 233.4-inch length was the largest Buick ever. The hardtop Electra models resembled the style of the Cadillac Fleetwood. The Electra was available with various engines during several generations: the 6.6/7.0-liter Nailhead V8, 7.0/7.5-liter Buick V8, 3.0/3.8/4.1-liter Buick V6, 5.0-liter Oldsmobile V8, and 4.6-liter Oldsmobile diesel V6 are among them. The very last Electra was assembled on the 3rd of August, 1990.

The year-to-year changes influenced the Electra's transmission too. Automatic transmission always came standard and was available in 2-speed, 3-speed, or 4-speed spec. The trim levels for the Electra included the following: Limited, Park Avenue (and later Park Avenue Ultra), and performance-oriented T-Type. The Park Avenue Ultra had such distinctive exterior part as a hinged hood, quite different to the conventional setup. The 1968 Electra came with a new tail light trim along with hidden windshield wipers. One year later, the 1969 Electra eliminated the vent windows of the front and rear doors. The Electra got its minor face-lift in 1965 by flowing 'Coke bottle' lines. The 1975 model was prominent with its radial-ply tires. The 1976 Electra received an 'egg-crate' grille with running lights on either side. The front end was later restyled, namely the plastic grille with 17 vertical bars replaced the metal one. The apparent change came in 1987 when the Electra got composite one-piece headlights instead of the former four-lamp 'quad' ones.

When it comes to the interior changes, the Electra isn't the first to talk about accessories. The 1971-1976 models had optional driver and passenger airbags, but they were not so popular because of their overcharge. From 1974, leather upholstery and power windows came standard in the Electra Limited. The minor interior difference came with the 1976 Electra when the brake release handle became black instead of chrome and the new seat material resembled corduroy. The Park Avenue trim was the most exclusive within the Electra series. It was noted for its comfortable seats and a center console, velour headliner, a thicker carpet, etc.

It may sound like a cliche, but classics don't go out of style. For further affirmation, just ask an Electra owner. The Buick Electra is still classy, still full of life, and still capable of making drivers smile. With just the right mix of elegance and machinery, the Electra has managed to stay relevant well past many of its contemporaries.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.

This trailer hitch harness works great and the pulley system worked perfect. The harness is built very well and looks like it should work for a long time.
