Autotrader Find: Pristine 1990 Buick Reatta Convertible

The Buick Reatta was a small, somewhat sporty 2-door model that was sold by Buick for a few years in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It wasn’t a huge success, and it’s pretty hard to spot a Reatta on the road today — but this particular Reatta is well preserved in fantastic shape, and it’s currently offered for sale.

First, the particulars. When the Reatta came out back in 1988, Buick hoped it would add some sporty flair to the brand’s lineup — one that was pretty dull, save for the Grand National. A convertible came out soon after, but the Reatta never found the buyers Buick hoped for, and it was canceled after four model years.

Although many people preserved Reatta models for potential future collectibles, this particular example has been especially well preserved. Offered by Laria Chevrolet Buick in Rittman, Ohio, southwest of Akron, this Reatta Convertible has traveled just 5,640 miles from new — and it clearly shows. The interior is absolutely fantastic, showing virtually no signs of wear, and the same goes for the exterior. This Reatta is brilliant.

According to the Carfax report, this Reatta has spent its whole life in Ohio, and miles were added very sparingly over the years, as it was likely taken out only for special occasions. If you’re looking for a pristine Reatta — and I’m really not sure if anyone is — this one is absolutely perfect, and likely the nicest you’ll see. It’s offered for $22,950 — big money for a Reatta, but perhaps appropriate for the nicest one. Find a Buick Reatta for sale
