Default 1977 Armbruster-Stageway Buick 6-Door

Looking for what appears to be a pristine, just out of service Armbruster-Stageway six door? Here's what appears to be a very attractive 1977 Buick Electra based example reasonably priced. First year of the "down-sized" big Buicks these may soon become collectable - if they aren't already. When did you last see one?

Center door glass on my 1981 Armbruster 6 door is stationary. It looks like they used the same style of glass in this one. Bill Frisk

one would have to get it apart to see if you make it do so. I had a 92 superior 6 door that was the same way. but the S&S they would roll down in.

It would be a nice car to keep, a well maintained original, for only $4K!

You can buy about any 6-door limo you want, 1996 and older, for $5000 or less. Not a lot of demand or interest in these. I do like the fact that it has the black velour interior!

That's slow enough to get you a ticket in calf. Now me I'm still looking for one that has 3 rows of bench seats and 6windows that go down. Should never have sold that 89.

I had a 1979 Buick Park Avenue with a 403 Olds engine.
Strong engine and powerful.

If it was silver or black it would be tempting. White, forget it.

Never understood why the fake plastic wood look in any car.
Looks even worse with a black interior.

The US exchange makes any car buy for Canadians hard these days.
