1991 Buick Park Avenue 3.8 V6. £700 OVNO

Recommended Posts

Yeah, I really need this gone now. I made some awful error whilst calculating my financial needs for this month, and as such, this has to go.


The lowdown:


-3.8 V6 FWD with about 170hp.

-MOT until March

-Working electric seats, front bench seat (it has a middle belt!) with fold down arm rest if needed.

-Deep pile carpet mats (GM branded which match the carpet colour)

-Working windows

-Awful plastic wood everywhere

-Buick hood ornament in situ

-All wheel trims present

-Drives well, really quiet on motorways, 70 is more or less 3000rpm but you wouldn't be able to tell.

-Fuel economy not too dire on a run

-Original stereo works really rather well


Not so good:


-ABS light and service due light on. I am a bit pissed about the former as the previous owner didn't mention it at all, I just discovered the black tape covering it when I got home.

-Rust in places. Part of the front radiator mount has disappeared through rust. It hasn't ever been mentioned on an MOT so I suspect it wouldn't really need doing, and the radiator is held on by side mounts too.

-Engine fan always on

-No headlining

-Central locking does not work

-Paintwork is really rough up close.

-Some little chips in the windscreen.


I think that covers all of it. It is classic insurance friendly as FJ were happy to cover it for me,

Has done approx 116k.

Gearbox seems weirdly fine, it doesn't make any sort of indication that its changed down or up, it just gets on with it.

Heater works, but I haven't checked the AC.

Has a soft close boot, which works but it's bloody noisy.

I was told the belts were done, then found a belt in the boot. The belt in the engine bay looks fine, but no idea of age.


Originally a Florida car, and there is an owners manual with some of the cars history in it, but it is very brief.



I really, really need this gone as soon as possible. 



First offer around £700 takes it.

That looks fit. The new owner needs to be clinically obesce, wears a baseball cap and live in a retirement village.

I like this. I had a look at the 'proper' Yank thread and it's no use to me. I already know what Corvette/Camaro/Edsel/Tri five are & that they're well out of my price range. I'd be interested in a Yank like this. Not too huge, suitably ugly, and best of all - cheap.

Had I not got far too many cars at the mo, I'd be on this in a trice.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
