West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and stunning example of this beautiful all original and stock 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible with only 4K (yes, thats four thousand!) original miles! Finished in its beautiful all original factory color combination of 'Bright Red' color paint with a Tan leather seats interior and a matching tan soft top! The Buick Reatta Sports Coupe and Convertible (added in 1990-91) is a now a classic and very collectible American sports car designed by GM and which was built for only three years from 1988-91 and they were hand crafted by a team of craftsmen in a series of nine craft stations at the 'Reatta Craft Center' in Lansing, MI and not on the assembly line with a quality of workmanship that still shows toady. Each car was shipped with a signed certificate by all 5 team leaders of each team responsible for the specific segments of the Reatta with a pride and dedication to quality workmanship for paint finish; body panel fit; instrument/steering column/electrical system; interior trim and drivetrain/brake system and the craftsman log was signed only after meeting the highest possible standards of its day. This particular car will also be sold with its original Buick Reatta car cover, original leather book containing the owners manual and pen and its 'Craftsman Log', original Buick dealer and factory letters of introduction, car magazines and trade publications from the year 1990 and all original service records until garaged and covered with 3,957 miles in 1997! The Convertible models are now very rare and desirable to Buick enthusiasts and collectors as only 2,132 Convertibles were built in 1990 and 305 Convertibles in 1991 compared to 19,314 Coupes during the 3 year Reatta production run. Factory options include: 3800 V6 Engine with fuel injection Auto transmission with overdrive Remote keyless entry Power windows Power steering Power door locks Leather wrapped steering wheel Front wheel drive Power 4 wheel disc brakes Electric trunk release Cruise control with resume Tilt steering column Cornering lamps Electric rear defogger Driver side airbag Retractable Halogen headlamps Anti lock braking system Illuminated entry 6-way dual power seats Electric dual remote mirrors with heated driver mirror Theft deterrent system Fog lamps Front & rear independent suspension Gran touring suspension This particular example was purchased new on 3/19/1991 in California by its original owners, a southern California couple from Santa Monica, California, at 'Ladin Lincoln Mercury Buick' of Thousand Oaks and the car has no history of any accidents or signs of any previous damage and boasts a clean CARFAX report, confirming its original mileage. It was obviously always garaged as there is absolutely no rust and no oxidation or signs of any exposure to the elements whatsoever. The original California couple who owned the car until 2013 always serviced the car at either Buick specialists or the dealrships until the year 1997, when with some 3,957 miles, the car was parked in its garage and not driven again until it was sold in 2013. Following our recent purchase of the car, we have not found the car to be in need of anything whatsoever except a new owner! It is truly the ultimate barn (garage really!) find! The original factory 'Bright Red' color paint is in simply exceptional and flawless condition as is the original and matching 'Tan' leather interior and the original matching soft top and all the options are working as they should. The car drives exactly like such an extremely low mileage and well maintained and serviced car should and must be driven to be fully appreciated and seen to be believed! The engine is extremely strong with no oil leaks, the transmission is very smooth shifting and the temperature always remains cool. Now fully depreciated, these cars offer great value for anyone seeking a rare, fun and luxurious sporty convertible and you will surely look long and hard to find a finer example of this exceptionally clean (virtually as new to all intents and purposes!) and rare 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible, 1 of only 2,437 Convertibles ever built, with a plethora of original dealer documentation and only 4K original miles available anywhere else!
