Wheels in the Grass

Driving through Little Valley one day a while back, I came across a grassy field, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, with a bunch of interesting cars, including this 1969 Buick Electra 225 Custom four-door hardtop. The Custom was the top of the Electra line, with Kilmer cloth-and-vinyl bench seats as standard equipment. Not sure who Kilmer was, but how many people get a seat named after them? If you were free-and-easy with your dough, you could order the Limited option, and park your butt in Keswick cloth and expanded-vinyl. Ovviously Keswick was more important than Kilmer. Pricing for the Custom four-door hardtop started at $4,611 and there were 65,240 of them built, making it the top-selling Buick for 1969. See the full-line brochure here.
