Serious Collectible: Select 60 Buick Reatta

1990 Buick ReattaOne little known car in the collectible world is the Buick Reatta Select 60. All of the Buick Reatta models were made by hand, making each of the more than 21,000 cars special to General Motors and to their owners. These luxury sports cars were made for just a few short years, between 1988 and 1991. While the majority of the Buick Reatta models are overly collectible, there are a few select ones – called Select 60 – that truly are.

After much anticipation, General Motors finally lifted its self-imposed ban on engines bigger than 400 cid, and the result was worth celebrating. New muscle cars were introduced with bigger engines and more power than ever before. The 1970 Buick GSX was one such model, and a much coveted one, at that. Several things about this car made it special at the time, and some of these same things help keep the car at the forefront of the minds of muscle car collectors and restorers to this day.

Buick RivieraThe Buick division of General Motors is one of the most important automotive manufacturing concerns that the world has ever known. The company dates all the way back to 1899 when it was known as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company. David Dunbar Buick incorporated the company as the Buick Motor Company four years later and the rest, as they say, is history.

As optimistic as David Dunbar Buick may have been when he started out in the automotive business even he would probably find it hard to believe that his surname would be gracing quality American motor vehicles for well over 100 years.
