1988 Buick Reatta
1988 Buick Reatta
Assembly at the Reatta Craft Center was performed at a series of stations each with a specialized team of workers, rather than on a conventional assembly line. After a team had completed their portion of the assembly, the car would be moved by robots to the next station. Paintwork was performed on site under subcontract to PPG Industries.
A unique car with specialized assembly, 1 of only 4,708 produced in 1988, and a 1-owner car. Consigner stated 65,477 miles on this all original coupe. A unique car ready to rock and roll at your local car show, or a trip to the shore.
Shades of the Pontiac Fiero, this 2-door coupe is painted in Bright Red with a gold pinstripe. A large plastic trim piece surrounds the car at the belt line, and lines up with the front and rear bumper height. A wraparound taillight with centered BUICK badging painted on it, as well as a wraparound rear glass window emulate the round lines of this car. Hidden headlights are within a thin pointed grille, yet it remains rounded. Standard aluminum wheels are all around.
Two tone tan leather covers the two front buckets showing darker tan inserts within a lighter field. A contrasting back center console is there with the shift lever, and arm rest. Two locking storage compartments are behind the buckets as well as a locking trunk access door for any longer cargo. Interestingly as rounded as the exterior is, the interior uses early 1980's square and rectangle design for the dash, which has a touchscreen computer interface, marketed as the Electronic Control Center (ECC). This includes radio and climate control functions, date reminder, trip computer, user-configurable overspeed alarm as well as diagnostic access to the vehicle's electronic systems and sensors. A digital speedometer readout is featured as well, totally eliminating any analog gauges. Power windows, power steering with an adjustable column, power locks, and power brakes were standard fare on this model.
The 3.8 Liter V6 can produce 170HP and is meshed with an automatic transmission all transversely mounted and driving the front wheels.
Seen underneath are a fully independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and front wheel drive. Not seen is any rust, surface or otherwise, just matching red floorpans form underneath.
Only 4,708 Reattas were produced in 1988 which should surely position this car as a future collectible. This red Reatta with its classy and modern tan interior looks, runs and drives fantastic. Take this truly unique 1 owner car, in excellent original condition, on tour or to your local car shows.
