And you can't buy a better Buick than a 1966 Buick Electra 225. When you consider that every Buick gets the best of everything, you can imagine what the best of Buicks gets. Not that we tune the Electra more carefully than other Buicks. Everything on every Buick has to blend with everything else. Performance. Styling. Ride. Han dling. Everything. Now consider a few things that make the Electra 225 what it is today. The majestic Super Turbine transmission. A massive 4 01-cu. in. Wildcat V-8. A suspension that takes the rough edges off the world. Luxury, luxury everywhere. (The following safety items are standard on all Buicks: front and rear seat belts, inside and outside rear view mirrors, padded dash and sun visors, dual-speed windshield wipers and washers, back-up lights. Our suggestion on the subject of front and rear seat belts? Use them.) Money? Some think a man who can afford a Buick Electra 225 is above thinking about money. We tend to doubt it. (After all, thinking about money is how Electra owners get enough of it to become Electra owners.) So Electras are tuned to last. And cost less than you might have thought in the first place. (With us, green is more than the color of envy. Or grass.) There now. Things are looking up already, aren't they? 1966 Buick. The tuned car.
