1977 Buick Electra sedan proposal (mv160831)

This 1977 Buick Electra Sedan proposal has a hint of Cadillac in the crown of its grille—and even foreshadows Lincoln’s forthcoming 1980 Continental, in the fenders and parking lights. However, Buick’s designers surely beat Ford’s to the punch as this photo was taken on May 17, 1974. The full-width grille, under the headlights, was a prominent feature on production Electra’s for 1974-75. The hood ornament may appear like a Wreath and Crest but is actually Buick’s encircled tri-colored, mono-shield.
