1960 Buick Electra 225 (Carmen)

Carmen- The 'Deuse Quarter' This a very gorgeous 1960 -Buick Electra 225- Convertible-6L High Performance '445 Wildcat' Engine in titan red, capable of 130 mph, returns 20 to the gallon on a country run. 225 denotes the length in inches that's 19 feet long and weighs in at 2.25 tons! It takes off from standing with a mighty labouring roar! A dream to drive. One of only two registered in the UK.

In 1960 General Motors built the 225 to promote their vehicles. The car was test driven 10 000 miles round Daytona. It took 3 days and averaged over 130 mph but within two weeks of the test a Senate Law was passed banning the use of performance testing in advertising as people were dieing on the roads. This beautiful show-piece was discontinued after 6 745 were built and the advert shelved. I know of 12 world-wide and keep looking for more.


Malcolm Bishop of Spurr Cars said of this car, "When you've bought a car like this, where on earth do you go next?", and he's been selling American classic cars since the 60's.
