Eyrewell Forest Motor Company are delighted to bring to market this fabulous 1965 Buick Electra 225.

225 denotes the inches from front to back - you will need a decent sized garage to house this behemoth measuring in at 5.7m long!

With a bench seat up front and no seatbelts in the rear this is technically a six seater - but depending on the size of the rear seat occupants you may even legally fit 7 in there.

All GM passenger vehicles received a major redesign in 1965 dominated by flowing Coke bottle lines and fastback roof profiles on its coupe models, and the 6 window-body style was eliminated. For 1965, Buick also changed its marketing strategy and offering the Electra 225 in two trim levels, base and Custom. Along with the new body came a new chassis with a full perimeter frame including side rails that replaced the previous X frame used since 1961.

Engine offerings were unchanged from 1964 including the standard 325 hp (242 kW) 401 V8, and two versions of the larger 425 V8 that were rated at 340 hp (254 kW) with a four-barrel carburetor or 360 hp (268 kW) with two four barrels. The three-speed Super Turbine 400 automatic transmission was standard equipment. A new body style introduced for 1965 was the thin-pillar 4-door sedan, which featured frameless window glass with a thin, chrome fixed B pillar.

Invest now in an appreciating classic. Whether used as a wedding car or for High School formal drop offs this super smooth cruiser is sure to please.
