    Just picked up a sweet 69 electra. The paint isn't the greatest and it will need the fuel tank drained and cleaned. Couldn't be happier to start this build.

    Sorry to have hijacked this thread for a beauty contest... :)

    Have to agree that '67 is sweet! I think the color helps blend the size of the hood into the brightwork better. The blue makes my '72 a bit 'In yer face!'

    Shoot them at twilight, helps diminish the size and of course you have to get the angle just right. Yours is there just got to find it by taking a bunch of shots and digging through. Can see the damn mail box in the passenger windshield, it ruins the shot.

    All year Electra's look good:) Some of the front's on a few years aren't my favorites though.. Don't kill me but I don't like the 73 front and the 74 front all that much. "I owned a 74 for years;)"
    The 66 would be nicer looking with the Wildcat grill, and the 70 front is just to plain and blah..
    As for the rest of the body, the side and rear from 64 to 76 with the squared quarters and strip tail lights are just beautiful.
    Electra Bob that diplomat blue is killer! Electra Man, silver is elegant! Tufbuick big bad and red! and gsx455 big bad and blue!
