Buick Electra Accessories & Parts

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.

  • Fender Flares
    No-drill Fender Flares are So Easy to Install!
    Have you ever seen another truck like yours and thought, "It looks the same as mine, but more…rugged"? And after a moment of reflection, the answer finally came to you why. The other vehicle was equipped with fender flares, and yours wasn't. Yes, there's a reason automakers fit fender flares on top-trim versions of their cars and trucks at the factory. It's because they can serve as elegant-looking pieces that make your vehicle look more expensive, or as more robust ones that add well-toned, muscular definition, without great cost or complexity. Because we understand just how much they add to a vehicle, we offer a great selection of fender flares. And regardless of what you opt for, fender flares can be left their original color (usually black), or they can be easily custom painted to blend in or contrast as desired.
  • Dash Kits
    Dash Kit Options: Upgrade Kits, Factory Match Wood
    There's no question that custom dash kits add richness and spice to your vehicle's interior - regardless of whether you choose a finish of wood, brushed metal, carbon fiber, bright solid colors, or even camouflage. The high-quality trim sets we offer are crafted to exacting specifications in order to ensure everything looks right and fits tight the way original equipment does.
  • Side Mirrors
    Interior Mirror Options Bring You into the 21st Century
    It may be hard to imagine, but interior rearview mirrors are subject to a lot of stress. Direct sunlight and extreme interior temperatures take their toll - eventually causing glue and bonding materials to deteriorate from the edges inward. As a result, those edges of the mirror appear to be crinkling up like tinfoil - a distracting and unsightly sight that has the effect of making the rest of your vehicle seem old and tired.
  • Dash Covers
    Rear Deck Covers Complete Your Interior Protection
    If you've got a coupe or sedan, when was the last time you actually looked at your vehicle's interior "rear deck"? This is the horizontal shelf that sits between the rear window and the edge of the rear seat back cushion. This area may also be described as a hat shelf or package tray, and it's usually covered at the factory in carpeting or other material that's closely knit and low in height. This covering is discreet enough to blend into surrounding areas of the interior and, in most cases, no one gives it a thought.
  • Custom Grilles
    Grille Emblems | The Finishing Touch to Your Factory or Custom Grille
    A grille emblem is a source of pride for vehicle manufacturers because it's a final signature on what designers and engineers have spent a lot of time and hard work creating. It's fair to say a grille emblem is similar to an artist's name on a completed painting - because both represent a show of pride about what's been created, and in the creator's own abilities to produce it. And while pieces by any artist will vary, the signature on them is distinctive in its own right because it's the one constant that doesn't change. If an artist or carmaker goes in a new direction, that signature may be the only thing that's recognizable initially - until what's newly created becomes appreciated on its own merits.
  • Tonneau Covers
    Painted Tonneau Covers | Move From Utility To Luxury
    If you're like most pickup truck owners, you carry a lot in the bed of your truck. And if your truck bed floor is bare, you may have noticed the increasing numbers of scratches and dents that have resulted from loading and unloading cargo. Glancing back at your truck isn't as enjoyable any more - because the whole of it no longer shines with the unified look of a single, unadulterated color. Or maybe you've protected your bed with a bedliner and have come to feel its black appearance just doesn't blend with your truck's finish the way you thought it would.
  • Off-Road Bumpers
    Skid Plates Provide The Ultimate In Off-Road Protection
    If you take your 4x4 off-roading, you have likely gained an appreciation of how unforgiving trails can be when it comes to your vehicle's underside. Deep ruts with rough edges can appear out of nowhere, sturdy-looking rocks can shift unexpectedly, and tranquil bodies of water can hide everything from sinkholes to fallen tree trunks. Before you know it, the underside of your truck has bounced off something hard enough to damage moving suspension components or puncture housings containing engine oil, gasoline, transmission fluid, or differential gear oil.
  • Custom Hoods
    What Is The Procedure To Install A Hood Scoop?
    In the custom hoods section of our website, you'll find add-on hood air scoops that create an unmistakable look of power. Since the beginning of hot-rodding, racers have been fitting scoops onto their cars both for looks and function. Over the years, many high-performance muscle cars have even featured them as original equipment on top trim levels. Hood scoop openings can face forward in order to guide cool air into the engine, or the openings can face rearward to take advantage of the high pressure area at the base of the windshield. Whichever way they are positioned, airflow under the hood increases - a factor that improves both induction and heat ventilation to varying degrees.
  • Garage Accessories
    Lift Your Car Easily And Safely With A Quality Floor Jack
    When working as a do-it-yourselfer (DIY), whether you're a beginner or an expert, having the right equipment to get your vehicle off the ground is a starting point for easier car repairs at home. You work on your own vehicle because you enjoy the experience of improving your car or truck with your own hands, and you do it to save money. With that spirit in mind, we've written this article to cover the very items that help you get started - floor jacks which are the right size, quality, and price for your home garage workshop.
  • Seat Covers
    How To Install A Set Of Custom Seat Covers
    The design and construction of seat covers have truly come a long way. Computer-aided design and better production methods have allowed the creation of modern seat covers that are custom-tailored to fit individual makes and models - stretching like a glove over every contour. And thanks to modern materials, today's covers will stay form-fittingly snug over each fold and crease - even under heavy use. Passengers won't notice they are add-ons, and you may forget they're not original equipment yourself. Installation is relatively easy and does not require any tools because seat covers we sell come equipped with all the straps, zippers, and clips you'll need to snugly secure them in place.
  • Generators
    Portable Generators: Superstorm Salvation For The Household
    With storms and weather events that intensify with every passing year, power outages lasting for extended periods of time have become commonplace - a problem that's only going to get worse in the future. When power outages hit, hot water heaters, heating systems, kitchen appliances, basement pumps, security alarms, and other items that use electricity as their lifeblood are rendered useless. You're left literally powerless to control your environment against extreme temperatures, and you have no way to stop flooding and property damage that tend to go hand-in-hand with heavy storms.

    Lifts & Ramps Safely Bring Your Vehicle Up To Working Height
    The odds are that if you clicked on this article to read it, then you appreciate the idea of working on your own car. Perhaps when you pass by a professional garage or shop, you're a bit envious as you glance in and see service bays filled with lifts and other equipment that make certain repair jobs easier. Professionals use lifts for a good reason - they allow you to perform almost any repair at a more comfortable height so you can see clearly, apply torque easily, reach for tools faster, and have access to areas normally inaccessible with the vehicle on the ground.
  • Custom Hoods
    What Are My Choices For Custom Hood Materials?
    An automobile hood is one of the body panels on your vehicle with the largest surface area, and it's the one panel you'll be looking at every minute you're behind the wheel. Considering this, maybe you find it as odd as we do that many vehicle manufacturers have chosen to make modern hood panels flat and boring, thanks in large part to the search for low wind resistance.
  • Sunroof Visors
    How To Install A Universal Sunroof Visor
    Sunroof deflectors install on your vehicle's roof in front of the leading edge of the sunroof itself. The rounded, upwardly-curving shape they possess redirects air so it flows up and over the sunroof opening instead of into the vehicle. Because of that built-in curve, most deflectors extend over and effectively cover approximately three to six inches of the sunroof opening at the front - blocking sun glare that would normally beam directly into your eyes.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rain Guards: In-Channel vs. Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, are an underrated automotive accessory - simply because it's difficult to know just how effective they are until you experience them. However, once fitted on your car or truck, it's hard to imagine how you got along without them. Deflectors improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reducing annoying wind noise. Deflectors also allow you to drive in the rain with windows cracked for ventilation without getting wet. And when blistering hot summer days roll around, windows can be left cracked in a parking lot without being noticeable to potential thieves.
  • Bug Deflectors
    The Age Old Debate: Do Bug Deflectors Work?
    The effectiveness of bug deflectors has been a point of contention between believers and non-believers for a long time. Some insist they work wonders, while others swear to the contrary. Because lots of testimonials supporting both points of view float around the internet and through word of mouth, deciding what to believe can be difficult. Before doing that, it's important to understand the thinking behind bug deflector designs.
  • Sunroof Visors
    Sunroof Visors Let You Enjoy Fresh Air No Matter The Weather
    According to recent statistics, over half of new vehicles sold in the United States are equipped with a factory "sunroof", "moonroof", "panorama roof", or similarly-named panel which allows part of a vehicle's roof to slide open. It wouldn't be a stretch to say almost 9 million cars and trucks leave factories so equipped each year. And the reason for their popularity is simple - sunroofs are great! They make it possible to enjoy fresh air, warm sun, and cool breezes right by our heads while driving our four-door sedans, SUVs, and minivans. We get a taste of the convertible life without giving up 98% of the practicality we need every day. At the dealership, most buyers see a sunroof option on the checklist and immediately envision blissfully taking in all the joys of Mother Nature while driving their future car. Mentally, the forecast is sunshine with no rain - a powerful enough thought to make the extra cost of a sunroof seem well worthwhile.
  • Wind Deflectors
    How To Install Rain Guards | In-Channel And Stick-On
    Rain Guards, also known as wind deflectors, window deflectors, or window visors, improve your vehicle's aerodynamics when the windows are down, reduce annoying wind noise, shield you from rain spray, and allow windows to be left cracked in a parking lot without giving notice to potential thieves. Going forward, we'll refer to them as "deflectors" in this article.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Water Sports Equipment
    So you've got a kayak, canoe, surfboard, or stand up paddleboard you can't wait to use. Before you can do that, however, you've got to find a practical way to get your toy to a lake or ocean - safely, and without damage. While these watersport items embody grace and fluidity in the waves, the truth is they're extremely cumbersome to transport on land. If you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out the best solution, we've created this article to cover the many rooftop carriers for these items that we offer.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Rear Window Deflectors | Made To Shade Your Truck’s Back Glass
    Have you ever driven your pickup truck and found that the sun glare coming from the rear window is a real nuisance? It's difficult to block the sunlight from streaming through that location, especially given that your vehicle manufacturer was not thoughtful enough to provide fold-down visors for the rear window area. You could fashion and install some kind of curtain, but that would only create a greater nuisance by blocking rear vision.
  • Wind Deflectors
    Do Rain Guards Really Work?
    If the air conditioning system in your car no longer blows cold air because performing costly repairs isn't feasible, you've probably become familiar with the cooling off method some describe as "460 Air Conditioning" - signifying 4 windows down at 60 miles per hour. You play around with just how much to open each window in order to create a balance that maximizes crosswind and minimizes unpleasant, ear-popping buffeting inside the cabin. But no matter how hard you try, you and your hair still end up disheveled. Hopefully you're not going to a place where that matters.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Storage Solutions | Cargo Boxes, Bags, Baskets
    Maybe you've got an SUV with three rows of seats. They're great fun when 6 or 8 people are along for a road trip, but most such modern vehicles utilize every inch of interior space in order to fit that third row. Consequentially, there's virtually zero room for cargo when seats are in the upright position. Or maybe you have a similar problem with a compact hatchback, or even a minivan. Your vehicle may have fold-flat seats that make carrying cargo easy, but what good are they when you need to bring passengers with you? You can't ask adults to squeeze in between duffel bags or sporting gear, and you can't ask them to hang on tight and surf on the roof either.
  • Roof Racks
    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Winter Sports Equipment
    Skiing and snowboarding are not inexpensive hobbies. After purchasing skis, poles, shoes, clothes, lift passes, and even lodging accommodations, you've shelled out enough money that it becomes tempting to skip spending more on a rooftop carrier. But if you've ever jammed all your snow gear inside your car, you know how chaotic, slushy, and awkward that can be - especially if you're trying to make room for friends and luggage. That's why we offer cleverly-designed rooftop carriers that won't break your bank in the Ski & Snowboard Racks section of our website.
  • Spoilers
    How Easy Is It To Install a Spoiler Myself?
    Rear spoilers are one of the flashiest yet cost-effective exterior additions you can make to your ride. The right spoiler will transform a plain-Jane family car into a sports sedan, and upgrade a sporty car into a one-of-a-kind race machine.
  • Spoilers
    Will Adding a Spoiler Make My Car More Aerodynamic?
    A simple way to answer this question would be with a "yes". However, the science of properly managing airflow to create beneficial automotive aerodynamics is, quite literally, more complicated than meets the eye. The word "aerodynamics" brings to mind visions of a vehicle in a wind tunnel with a smoke wand illustrating how smoothly air flows over it. But true automobile aerodynamics involves a detailed study of how the motion of air interacts with all areas of an automobile. One term that gets the most attention is "coefficient of drag" (Cd), which is an overall measurement of a shape's resistance to airflow.
  • Spoilers
    Why Should I Order My Spoiler Already Painted?
    When you've finally decided on the right rear spoiler or wing for your vehicle, it can't arrive quickly enough. Then, you want it to be ready for installation as soon as possible so you can begin enjoying the benefits of it. Because we understand this, we offer the option of ordering spoilers pre-painted by our manufacturers before shipping. Based on customer feedback and experiences relayed to us, we strongly recommend you consider choosing this option, for these very good reasons:
  • Spoilers
    What Kind of Spoiler is Right for You?
    The function of a rear spoiler is to control the flow of air streaming over a vehicle and properly manage it when it reaches the rear where turbulence is most likely to form. A correctly designed spoiler will counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and it will enhance rear grip by keeping a vehicle's rear end planted firmly against the road - without causing excess drag.
  • Body Kits
    Lightweight Body Panels | Cut Pounds, Go Faster, Save Fuel
    If you're an automotive enthusiast who has visited our performance sections, it's likely that you know that reducing overall vehicle weight is an effective way to enhance your vehicle's performance, handling, and fuel economy. Naturally, there are different schools of thought on the subject of vehicle weight reduction.
  • Body Kits
    What Type of Body Kit Material Should I Choose?
    If you're reading this, you've probably decided the factory stock appearance of your car, while attractive, is rather staid and unexciting. You know that modifying your vehicle with a body kit is what feels right when it comes to adding a personal touch and making it your own. Maybe you're considering starting out slowly by adding a rear spoiler or front air dam, or going further with side skirts and even a replacement custom hood.
  • Body Kits
    Body Kit Installation | Weekend DIY, or Professional Shop?
    At CARiD, we understand how deeply the appeal of side skirts, rear diffusers, aero wings, air dams, custom replacement bumper covers, and other components included in body kits runs in the blood of automotive enthusiasts. We know, because we've added them on our own vehicles to enhance performance and to create uniquely impressive visual signatures.

WirelessOne Compressor System
WirelessOne Compressor System is a great product, easy install, no problems, just what I needed. They went on in about an hour, but of course I have my own shop, but the only tools I needed were a piece of chalk, a center punch a drill/drill bits and a few wrenches and voila! it was done.
