Buick 1962-1988 market review 2020

Literally hundreds of Buicks arrived in Australia during the 1960s and early ’70s, giving Holden dealers a showroom draw card and keeping RHD conversion shops very busy.

Rivieras were popular and surviving examples of the model’s three distinctive styles sell at $30-50,000. Less exotic and also less expensive, Skylarks came here usually with V8 engines and lots of power-assisted accessories. Electras and 1970s Limiteds are roomy and luxurious yet excellent cars can be found at $25,000.

1980s Buicks aren’t common here, or even in their country of origin, however collectors should visit the USA – virtually for now – to find turbocharged GNX coupes. These under normal circumstances will cost considerably more than $30,000.
