Convertible Top Sale!

grey top

We now offer NEW convertible tops for your Buick Reatta!

These tops are quality reproductions that fit much better than the originals, and will last many years longer!

If you’re having problems with your rear glass falling out, you are best off to replace the top. Our new tops come with a new glass window that has been double stitched and is guaranteed not to fall out for the lifetime of your car!

The top that Buick originally installed on your Reatta was a budget top. It was ill-fitting, and left a lot to be desired. If you’re having issues with wind and water leaks, you’ll find that our tops will solve those problems!

We have engineered just a little more fabric into the design than Buick did. Now you’ll find that water effortlessly slides right off the top and on to the ground, and NOT into your car! If your Reatta’s top is needing some attention, now is your chance to make it look like new again!

We offer both Haartz Sta-fast Canvas, as well as Haartz PinPoin Vinyl tops. We sell all of our tops with the factory-style glass rear window with defroster We also have other colors as well as plastic rear windows available upon request. Please call us at 919.233.1973 for more information on these tops.

Our tops are custom made to order, and thus typically take 3-5 weeks to arrive. We have never had anyone wait longer for one though. Normally by the time the 5 weeks passes, they are already installed and being put to use!

So don’t delay! Every rip and tear is letting water and nature inside your car and decreasing the value! If you’re selling your Reatta soon, a new top can add more than $3500 in perceived value to a potential buyer! Quite an excellent return on investment in our opinion!

To order your new top, simply choose whether you want cloth or vinyl, then choose your color below!

NOTE: All prices include shipping to the lower 48 United states. If you would like help on choosing which color top would be best for your car, feel free to give us a call at 919.233.1973. We’re more than happy to give you advice!

Over time, her baby started developing small problems and was a hundred dollars here and another hundred there. We weren’t too well off back then and one hot day, the A/C went out. Kym was frustrated and in a weak moment, traded the car off.

The years went by and we both have gone thru several vehicles since. She always said that letting it go was one of her worst decisions. I told her several times that somehow, I would get her another one whenever we found a nice one.

In April of 2016, we were driving down the road here in Huntington, WV, our hometown. We passed a classic car dealer and I spotted what I thought was the front end of a Reatta. We circled the block and sure enough it was. Two days later, on the 7th, we drove the black 90 convertible home. It was in really good shape except for the factory vinyl top.

After a couple of months, I started looking around for a new top. That’s when I discovered East Coast Reatta and Marck Barker. He was very helpful and ordered our new camel cloth top. After this, I was on his mailing list and I checked out his website frequently. That’s when I spotted a beautiful white convertible with the garnet red top.

My mistake was showing it to Kym. She decided that we should have his and hers cars. We drove down to NC and met Marck and the new addition. Marck had fixed this one up nicely and it only had 51,000 miles for a 1990 model. He was selling this car for a couple in western NC and drove along with us to the owners for paperwork and payment. This was on August, 7 exactly 4 months since our original purchase.

We got to know Marck pretty well and drove down to the Reatta Reunion in Charlotte this year. Had a great time and saw many beautiful Reattas and met new friends. While there, Kym had told Marck about her first Reatta and how she was sorry that she let it go.

Well, at the Buick National meet this year in Wisconsin, Marck saw a grey/grey coupe that was just like the one we had originally. He took a few pictures of it and sent them to us so we could appreciate it. I asked Marck if it was for sale and he didn’t know but would try to find the owner and ask him. Turns out he met this nice man, Gene who had several Buicks and 3 Reattas.

We called him and negotiated a price and were on our way north of Indianapolis. Gene and his wife had mixed feelings and letting it go but my wife told them of her first one and how much she loved it. The deal was made and Kym drove it all the way home. Now it has become her absolute favorite.

Many thanks to Marck and East Coast Reatta Parts! He is directly responsible for 2 of our cars. Also, I have him to thank for a radio, power antenna, wheels, a new top and several other items. We are now the Reatta people in our little corner of the world. Kym always names the cars and decided that the black one was “Dolly” since it came from the Nashville area. She called the white one “Denver” because it originally came from Colorado. And lastly, there’s “Lady Di”, the grey one. Simply because it’s a princess to her!

Keyless Entry Remotes

by ecrp on September 21, 2017

Did you know Reattas came standard with Keyless Entry?

Most people do not know it, but all 1989-1991 Reattas were left the factory with a GM Keyless entry system. Sadly, most Reattas by now have become separated from their remotes.

If you’d like to get yours functioning again, you’re in luck! We have the factory Buick keyless entry remotes in stock! All of our used remotes have minimal wear on the buttons, and come with new batteries as well as complete programming instructions to pair them with your Reatta.

NOTE: These will NOT work with 1988 Reattas as they are not equipped with a factory keyless entry system
We offer two options for the keyless remotes

keyless

— OEM factory style grey remotes – used with new batteries and two year warranty: $95 each, $175 for two

— NOS factory style grey remotes – New, never used $150 each or two for $275

ABS Brake Accumulator

by ecrp on August 13, 2017

All 1988-1990 Buick Reattas were equipped with the Teves Mk II brake system from the factory. These systems are unique in the fact that they use an electric motor and pump assembly. Unlike the tyical vacuum booster found in the 1991 Reattas and many other modern cars.

These pumps are prone to failure IF improperly maintained. When they fail, you loose all power brakes, and it can be nearly imposibly to stop the car. You don’t want that to happen while your wife is driving the car!

We’re going to share two secrets with you to keep your Reatta brake system in prime operation condition

TIP #1 

Keep up with regular brake fluid flushes. Your brake fluid is prone to take in moisture at a rate of 2-3% per year. That means your fluid, after 20 years or more could be 50-60% water. This makes the fluid thicker, and can gum up expensive parts such as pumps and pressure switches in your system.

Most Reattas we see have NEVER had their fluid flushed. Don’t let a simple repair cost you hundreds down the road.

TIP #2

Change your Brake Accumulator. These systems use an accumulator to store extra brake pressure to keep the pump from constantly running and burning it out. These are a nitorgen charged ball on top of the system that, over time, will lose it’s strength. When this happens, it causes the pump to run more often, and can lead to premature wear on the pump. Overworking the pump this way can burn it up. This will cause you to lose your power brakes as well.

Most Reattas on the road are still running their orignial 25+ year old accumulator. You rarely know you have an issue until you start losing your power brake ability.

You can save money on future repairs, and have peace of mind that your brake system is perfectly operational by replacing your accumuatlor today. We have had these units remanufatrued to originial specs. They fit as the originals, and are very easy to install.

Don’t be driving around wondering if your brakes may fail. Fix them today!

If your power brake pump is not coming on, this part will not fully solve your problem. Please call us at 919.233.1973 for assistance with troubleshooting and for availability on brake pumps.

Offered from East Coast Reatta Parts is one of the most rare and collectible Reattas ever made. With only 65 ever produced, the Select 60 is desirable and hard to find

In 1990, Buick awarded one of these limited edition Reattas to the top 60 Buick Dealers for superior customer service in the 1989 model year. This particular Reatta was awarded to Brewbaker Buick of Montgomery, AL.

All of the Select 60s built in 1990 were identical white convertibles. They were fully loaded with both the 16-way driver’s seat, as well as the CD player. They were also all equipped with black side moldings and white vinyl convertible top.

Several items that were unique to the Select 60s included white painted 1991-style wheels, white leather interior with flame red accents, special Select 60 Buick Dealer hood emblem, and armrest with slide-out cup holder.

With only 83,000 original miles, this Reatta is ready to go anywhere.

  • The factory white wheels have been refinished and new Cooper tires have been installed.
  • The brake system has been fully serviced with new fluid, new brake pads, and new flexible brake hoses on the front.
  • The A/C system has been professional assessed and is in excellent condition and blows ice cold on the factory R-12 refrigerant
  • Fresh timing chain service with a whole list of new parts installed.
  • New white vinyl top with heated glass back window professionally installed.
  • Headlamp lift motors fully overhauled
  • Factory stereo overhauled with new CD player and speakers

  • 16-way seats fully functioning – yes even the lumbar support!
  • Rare Select 60 hood emblem in place

 

After being owned by the original dealer for 4 years and 40,000 miles, this Reatta went to auction and ended up at a dealer in Wisconsin. From there it was sold to a snowbird who spent September-May in Florida. After his passing, it was sold to his neighbor who we bought it from in late 2015.

This car is ready to go anywhere. She drives like a dream, and is the perfect road trip car for two. Fly into RDU and drive it home, or we can help arrange delivery.

Carfax available on request.

Sold new in Tennessee at Waller Buick, this car spent most of its life in the Nashville area, with some time later down in northern Florida. We purchased the car from the original owner’s family, and proceeded to go through the car from bumper to bumper.

The air-conditioning works flawlessly and blows ice cold. The headlight lift motors have been refurbished with all new parts. Even the sun visor clips that are always broken on convertibles have been replaced with NOS ones from our stock of Reatta parts. We installed new factory size Michelin tires on the newly polished OEM aluminum wheels, as well as an overhauled factory stereo system with new speakers. This Reatta is well optioned with both the 16-way power seats and body color mouldings.

We also installed a new white pinpoint vinyl top with heated glass back window just as this Reatta came with from the factory.

With just under 95,500 original miles, this numbers-matching Reatta is in near perfect condition. The paint shines like new, the painted pinstripe has just been redone to factory specs, and even the taillight has been optically restored to look like new. . The deep blue interior has no rips or tears. The seats are cushy and as soft as new. All of the functions on the 16-way seats work perfectly, including the lumbar support bag, which we replaced.

Included are two sets of keys with factory remotes for the keyless entry (fully functional) as well as the complete owner’s portfolio with the pen, tire gauge, flashlight, convertible manual, note pad and all other literature.

Take a look at some of the underside pictures. You won’t find a more rust free Reatta most anywhere! This car has been pampered its whole life, and it shows.

We have had dozens of Reattas through our facility, and had our hands on hundreds more. And this Reatta is one of the nicest Reattas we have seen in recent months. And who better to buy a Reatta from than the people who live and breathe Reattas every day?

This car is ready to drive anywhere! Fly into RDU and drive home. We can assist in any way possible with shipping and transportation.
