Why We Like It

Offered with subtle updates and mild restyling from 1977, Buick’s LeSabre was rich with features, amenities, and options, as well as an upscale, upwardly mobile aura, positioned just below the larger top-of-the-line Electra and its variants. Recalling the bold “Free Spirit” themed 1976 Buick Century that paced the 1976 Indianapolis 500, this sweet customized 1988 Buick LeSabre Estate Wagon sports very cool graphics and certainly looks the part for a fun, family-friendly ride that likely garners plenty of admirers wherever it goes.

They advise it has been stored winters and it remains sound and solid with the benefits accrued from undercoating, rust proofing, paint sealant, and application of Scotchguard upholstery protective treatment by a Ziebart dealer. They also state the big Buick runs and drives like new, needing nothing, and capable of being driven anywhere, while online photos show the underside and interior in great condition. Power is delivered by the original 307ci Olds V8 engine and the seller advises the car starts properly every time and has no leaks. Tires retain an estimated 90% of their treads, and understandably, the paint is just starting to show its age.

Valuation Verdict

This is a fun and highly functional big American station wagon with well-conceived pace car-style graphics. Buy it, have fun, and get more attention than many far-more expensive cars. All for a shade over ‘$5k All Day’!
