Sold for $92,400 at 2004 Vintage Motor Cars at Amelia Island.
The '225' was derived from the 225-inch overall length, the longest of all GM cars during that period. Powering these large vehicles were a 401 cubic-inch Nailhead V8 engine offering 325 bhp. They had four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and an automatic transmission. The dramatically restyled 1959 models were replaced by an all-new model for 1960, with the flagship Electra riding atop a Buick-only 'K-member' frame. The 1959 cars had canted headlights while the 1960 versions were laid flat and parallel to the bumper, complementing the wider, longer and lower overall styling theme of the early 1960s.

This car was once part of the O'Quinn Collection and given a nut-and-bolt restoration in 2006. It is finished in Sable black with a red leather interior with red carpeting and a black top. It is a well equipped example with a host of desirable features including a power bench seat and power windows, top, steering and brakes. There is an AM radio and air conditioning as well.

In 2010, this Buick Electra 225 Convertible was offered for sale at RM Auctions 'Automobiles of Amelia Island' sale in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell for $60,000-$90,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car has been sold for the sum of $88,000, inclusive of buyer's premium.
