    It was a red car once, and would have looked pretty good as one. At least it could conceivably be returned to that with the price of a paint-job and some hard to locate trim. It is pretty low option and the owner spray-bombed the interior black. I guess some will like it, some will not. I've never been partial to the "rat-rod" thing where sloppy-chic is the style; everything is hit with a black primer spray-bomb, tends to look sloppy and not finished, but that's just me. The thing is people pay a lot of money now to duplicate that look, when all they had to do is ask a biker to hit it with a primer can in between bongs.

    Wouldn’t have to go far for trim! I think I bought ever piece of 1960 Buick trim back in the early 90’s. NOS 1st year of Tri-Shield(!) grill emblem,NOS FULL TAIL PANEL (find one of those ANYWHERE!) NOS BEZELS,REVERSE & parking lights, 5” thick Dealership only whatever album ,NOS transverse muffler hell I can’t even remember it all.
    Probably need to sell all that & the car since I haven’t even moved it in decade

    Color scheme is the worst, but an Invicta 2-dr hardtop is the best series/body style.

    I got no use for converts. Roof looks like crap when up, and also looks like crap when down UNLESS you have something like an Eldorado with a fiberglass boot. Wrinkled/bunched canvas ruins the lines of the car, esp when the other choice is a gorgeous, sleek bubbletop.

    Yep; it's not the popular opinion, but if I followed the masses I wouldn't own what I own; it'd be a '57 Bel Air 'belly button' convertible, and I could line up with a dozen more at a car show.

    1972Mach1 Just some M.M.O.G. guy.....

    I'd spray the sides black, leave the scallops, and drive it. It's also a great foundation to restore if its rust free. A purist could put the stock suspension back in easy enough. What's a rust free body worth? Then add in perfect glass and nice trim, and apparently it runs and drives.

    Does anyone know if there was an actual rally wheel for '60? Not the '64-70 ones on it (although those look pretty good), but ones originally made for '60?

    No; no styled wheels for ‘60; ‘64 is the first time Buick had anything other than a stamped steelie (or wires).

    You forgot to mention they're noisy and they leak. I've owned 3 of them, I should know. I'd love to trade my Electra convertible for a 59 Invicta hardtop or sedan.

    When I saw my hardtop sitting, lonely, in a carport, I remember saying this exact statement "If it's an Invicta, it's mine". And so it came to be.
