Tufted Chocolate: 1984 Buick LeSabre

A good rule of thumb is to buy someone else’s completed project car.  In nearly all cases, it’s far cheaper than paying for a restoration yourself.  Today’s car presents the question, is it madness or genius to spend twelve grand building up a sleeper GM B-body? The 84 Buick LeSabre is the cousin of the same year Chevy Caprice. Fifth generation LeSabres don’t usually garner the level of unbridled enthusiasm found by our seller.   Find this 1984 Buick LeSabre for sale in Hagertown, MD for $4,488 via craigslist.


The LeSabre shows just over 100,000 miles on the odometer.  The engine has covered 12,000 miles since being rebuilt while 700R4 transmission has only 100 miles on its own rebuild.

Check out those poop brown tufted seats!  Nothing says Brougham like those pillowy chairs and acres of fake wood.
