1985 Buick Regal T-Type
(Not Grand National)....  (same but different).  If you're looking, I'm sure you understand.  
For sale by private owner.  Car is located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  (eBay does not have provision for people with multiple residences).  This car is considered "antique" status, and free to travel without restriction.  
I am a Buick guy.  Like many car guy's, it started with a car my dad used to have.  We have a little collection that includes all kinds but, it's the Buicks that really intrigue me.  I like the oddballs, and low-milers in particular.  This car fits both those criteria well.  So, why are we selling?....  Moving.  We've sold nearly everything (including furniture) and asides from sentimental items and heirloom things, are starting 100% fresh.  We're not going far.  Just 5 minutes down the road and around the corner, in a fresh new abode that is currently being built.  Possession day is coming up mighty fast, and I'm selling this car to get rid of it like everything else.  My wife thinks I should reconsider but, I already know that if we hang onto this vehicle, she'll hang onto other things.  With that in mind, it's especially got to go.  
I really like this car, and enjoy driving it very much.  It gets really amazing fuel mileage, and is SO MUCH FUN with that kooky 80's turbo.  I like it because it's just a really nice, unrestored, no-excuses car.  It's a joy to drive, and the a/c makes it extra comfortable.  It blows ice cold on the hottest days.  This car is a real time warp to a neat era.  We had one of these before but, I preferred this one.  The other one can be seen as an excellent feedback in our record.  Thank you Timski !!!!!  Now, this one's got to go.  Our new place has a sparkly 12-car man-cave and that is exactly what we're limited to.  Sad to sell but, here it is...  UNRESERVED just to make sure!!!!
Interesting history:This car sat for approximately 25 years (+/-).  The 2nd owner bought it from a GM dealership used in 1991.  He drove it for a total of 6 months.  It was then parked on his driveway.  He always meant to do something great with the car but, time passed.  The car sat and sat.  Over time, the paint baked in the sun.  Fortunately, the owner was the lead tech at a large GM dealership.  He kept it lubed, kept it maintained (with all synthetic lubricants), kept premium fuel in it, and took it for drives around the block.  So, although it was nearly forgotten, it wasn't entirely.  As I think most car-guys know...  entirely leaving a car for 25 years can be fully detrimental.  This car received some very occasional loving, from a mechanical standpoint anyhow.  We had the paint rejuvenated and I love the look.  Wet sanding after wet sanding, plus several polishes really brought it back.  It has that old but new patina look.  Personally, I love it.  The car has such low mileage (62,556 miles) but has that brought-back-to-life patina look.  The finish is less gloss, more sheen.  It's simply fabulous.
I'd feel amiss if I didn't mention the colour.  It's called Dark Red Metallic by code but, it's more of a Burgundy Purple.  I have the facts somewhere but, I think it's either 1035 of these cars built or 1400-some in 1985.  I would surmise and venture to confidently say that of the rarity of production, I don't believe many were produced in this colour.  Once again, oddity and low mileage; makes me especially sad to see it go.  It wasn't supposed to actually but, loose brains / even looser wallet...  we just won a sealed bid auction for a firetruck.  (yes, real firetruck...  super frivolous).  Only room for 12 vehicles and a firetruck takes 2.  My 6 year old doesn't think as much of this car as daddy (a teenager when this was new) but, will flip when the firetruck arrives. 
 Now, as stated, I am selling this 100% UNRESERVED.  Asides from helping arrange your shipping, I have no time to take 99 more pictures, or have 2-hour long conversations.  I don't care about price and I am not going to get into long drawn out discussions as to whether it's a 7/10 condition, or 8/10.  Let's just call this a 1/10.  Perspectives vary so, for ease of sale, please disregard everything else and assume this car is an awful wreck project car with incorrect tires, poor exhaust, and needing everything.  That way, I save some time this week during the sale, and devote more to helping the new owner afterwards with arranging their delivery.  Also, review our feedback.  You'll see that getting every last dime of money isn't my objective.  I have money.  Money comes easy.  Sometimes money goes easy too (lol), but... it can be replaced.  Time can't.   
We have sold 15+ cars now on eBay.  This will be amongst our last to go.  During our time, we've figured out a few things.  We learned that 2 very important things are communication and procedure.  Our little procedure actually focuses on communication.  It goes as follows:After auction, we ask for your buyer's information.  You supply.We fill in transfer papers and scan/send to you.  You confirm spelling and information correct.You go to your bank, and make transfer.  We validate receipt.We begin on shipping, ...keeping you informed every step..You receive your cool vintage Trans Am, leave us another fabulous feedback, and begin cruising (and waving back to all the thumb's-up)We're not interested in Paypal deposits or anything.  If you want this car, I'm sure you want it enough to be sincere.  It's fairly unique with it's finish and super low mileage.  I'll be very disappointed if someone isn't genuine with their bid but, I think that anyone knowing what this is will see the value and step up.  Our procedure is simple.  Besides 3 main things (information, payment, delivery), it focuses heavily on clear and concise back/forth volley of communication.  That's important.  I realize I'm somewhat the anti-salesman and have taken strides to heavily under-represent this vehicle.  That's fine.  Of importance to us right now is a smooth sale to a genuine buyer.  Somebody will get a heck of a deal....  If you are bidding, please be serious as I am and understand our adherence to this little system/procedure.  It's to help both of us.  If, for any reason, you cannot adhere to this procedure, please let us know BEFORE BIDDING.  OR, if you are new to eBay or have zero-feedback record, please contact us first to let us know you understand and are genuine.  Listing something unreserved can be a big risk.  At least please be serious about bidding.

If you don't want to lose out on this car and HAVE AN OFFER, please contact me.  Most of our auctions end with me accepting an offer.  I always appreciate the early-bird approach.    
Shipping to most states and destinations is in the $1500+ range.  Please keep that in mind, and budget for at least this amount.  Texas and Florida, and other really far states, are obviously a bit more at minimum $2250.  Any required inspections, certifications, paperwork, or anything else are the buyer's responsibility.  I don't know the rules in each particular state so, am selling as per Alberta rules.  My wife has become pretty good at setting up shipping and, is happy to assist.  Rest is up to you.  Payment is by bank transfer, US account to US account.  As stated, I don't ask for Paypal.  Once payment is received, everything else is ready to proceed from there.  
If you'd like to speak over the phone, I'm happy to hear from you.  Please write and we'll make arrangements.  
Hope you have fun bidding.  It's an exciting process.  Getting a good deal sweetens the joy.  I believe owning classic cars should start fun and stay that way!
Anyways, I've had my fun.  Time to pass the torch.  I'm doing this unreserved so once I press the button, this auction starts unreserved and I am obligated.  Like pulling off a bandage quick.  So, with that said, here goes.....
