Default 1981 Buick LeSabre Funeral Car

1981 Buick LeSabre Funeral Car Taken out of service in August of last year. Owned by this funeral director since 1989. Has had excellent service, has always beem kept inside. Does have a small bit of a raised spot on the front edge of the vinyl top above the windshield. Small exhaust leak but does run and drive well. NO rust, just had the bumper fillers replaced (800.00). Tires are probably 60-70%. Still very serviceable as a funeral car or whatever. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1981-Buick-L...ZZReSb&vxp=mtr

Thought about buying on of these tail streach ones when I got the 86 6door. So tell me why is that no one gets one to convert back to a wagon? They got do cut up some 3 to do that. But if the payed that much to get the numbers fillers replaced some one seen him coming.

This is a center stretch, not tail.

Then is this one a Eureka? See the big center door now. The dog leg threw me off.

No. Definitely NOT a Eureka! This thing is not worth any more than what the prior owner spent to replace the bumper fillers!

Yes, sir; among the - if not the - worst of the stretched conversion cars.
