1972 Buick Donated to Habitat for Humanity

Buckle in for a drive down memory lane! Today’s Vehicle Spotlight highlights an amazing 1972 Buick donated to an even cooler charity: Habitat for Humanity!

The Car: 1972 Buick LeSabre Convertable

car donation to habitat for humanity

This shiny red convertible is part of a family that first hit the road in 1959. Buick is a famously reliable make of cars, and this particular cherry is a lot flashier than the average model.

Not only is this car a dazzling shade of red, it is spacious for a convertible! This model has a full-sized back seat, so up to five people can ride together in style. The back seat sure looks cozy…

The first Buick Lesabre revved its engine in 1959, and the last was manufactured in 2005. This particular Lesabre featured a cutting-edge seatbelt reminder! There is something timeless about the boxy frame, which was once the best selling car in America.

This particular model served its driver well for decades before starting a new life as a vehicle donation to charity.

The Charity: Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity has a simple vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

They help build new homes and empower future homeowners. Their projects depend on the sweat equity of homebuyers and volunteers. Habitat operates domestically, as well as in Latin and Central America, Asia, Africa, and Europe. Also, they operate globally, to help communities recover from disasters.

Habitat for Humanity doesn’t just offer handouts, they give folks the tools to build a better life. A donation to Habitat does more than help an individual or a family — it helps a community.

If you can’t donate sweat equity, or building materials to your local restore, you can always donate your car. Donating your car through Cars for Homes is a great and easy way to benefit your local affiliate.

Car Donation Wizard returns between 75-80% of the gross proceeds to Habitat, which is an effective way to support your favorite charity. Your car will be sold locally, and you will be eligible for a tax deduction!

Even if you don’t have a vintage convertible, you can still help Habitat with your charity car donation. Visit our website or give us a call at 877-277-4344 to get started!
