It’s no Brougham, but it is a Limited!
The LeSabre got smaller in 1977, but it was still quite a substantial machine.
I didn’t shoot many engine photos, and LeSabres came with a mix-and-match assortment of Buick, Olds, and Pontiac engines during the Malaise Era, but the front-mounted distributor seems to indicate that this car has Buick 350 power. 150 horses of Buick 350 power.
The ’79 LeSabre may have been a bit underpowered (especially if it came with the base V6 engine), but observe the luxury!
Silver-faced gauges. Actually, these look pretty good.
I might have to come back with a source of 12 volts and test this clock, because it would be a nice addition to my collection. There’s about a 3% chance that it will work, but I’m willing to take a shot.
