I’d really like to find a set of bucket seats for the Buick. The kind that came in the Invicta “Custom” and were an option for the Electra. When they come available, they are very spendy. A pair recently turned up on eBay, but in pretty bad shape, missing the trim but including lots of rust. The auction ended at $762.51 USD. Pretty steep for a pair of rust buckets! No, I didn’t bid. These were from a 1960 Pontiac Bonneville, but are the same as the ones used in Buicks. They also came in 1959-1960 Cadillacs and Oldsmobiles. There was no option for these from Chevrolet. A decent restorable pair will typically sell for more than $1500 but can go much higher.
Here are pics of the seats from the auction:
An here’s how good they are supposed to look:
I think I’ll keep my eyes open for a nice pair. Certainly this is a very low priority, considering all the other work that the car needs. They are just so darn cool, I “gotta” have ’em!
