1971 Buick LeSabre Custom Convertible – The 1971 Buick LeSabre was the fourth generation of Buick’s B-platform car, and it was a generally handsome form of family transport. The design still carried some of the same aesthetic that was present in the LeSabre of the late 1960s, with crisp and sweeping lines, and the car came as a two-door convertible or hardtop, or a four-door sedan or hardtop. No station wagon was offered until the 1974 model year, and the convertible LeSabre was absent during the 1973 and 1976 model years. Engine power on the 1971 LeSabre was a standard GM small block/big block choice, with Buick’s 350-cid small block V-8 rated at 230 hp, and a 315-hp rating for the 455-cid big block V-8. The engines did not change for 1972, but horsepower ratings plummeted as the industry changed from gross to net ratings.
This exceptional 1971 Buick has had just 2 TX owners since new. We recently had the opportunity to purchase the LeSabre from the 2nd local owner and jumped on the opportunity immediately. We are always on the hunt for rare and clean classic vehicles in excellent original condition such as this one. With only 1,856 convertible LeSabres produced in 1971, they represent only 1.3% of total production that year. Although it looks to have had 1 repaint in the original Fire Red, this beautiful Buick has a very straight body and the paint shows very well. The interior is still completely stock with excellent seats and a working factory radio. Under the hood still remains stock with a cold and unconverted R12 A/C system. A complete list of features and options includes; 350 V8, Auto, Power Steering & Brakes, Power Top, A/C, Cloth Floormats, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirror, Factory AM/FM Radio, Woodgrain Interior Trim, Original Owners Manual, Tinted Glass, Tire Tools, Spare Tire, 15″ Factory Hubcaps, and Thick Bf Goodrich Whitewall Tires! You probably can’t find a 1971 LeSabre Custom convertible for sale anywhere, much less one this original and clean. Call today to become a new owner while the next guy “sleeps on it” and misses a great opportunity.
