2: I found this 1961 Buick Invicta on July 3rd, 1983, stored in a former chicken barn in Swanville, Maine. There was approximately 54,000 original miles on the car. It had been purchased new in Brownsville, Florida on January 26, 1961 by Harry Stover of Brewer, Maine. The Buick was later given to one of Harry's sons and then sold to Don Curtis. I purchased the Buick from Don's widow for $800. The car was in excellent condition and no restoration work was needed.
3: In 1986 I drove to the Buick meet at the Indianapolis Speedway, where we were allowed to drive on lap around the speedway track at no more than 40 miles per hour. I kept the car for 26 1/2 years and drove it 39,000 miles. I drove it all over New England and as far west as St. Louis to the Buick National meet in 1997. | The Buick was a pleasure to drive as it handled and rode so well and cruised effortlessly at 70-75 miles per hour. The Buick is one of 18,398 Invicta four door hardtops built for the 1961 model year. February 2010 I traded the car to a dealer in Florida towards a 1973 Buick Electra Limited. The dealer then sold the Invicta to a man in Australia.
