Florida native: ’67 Buick Wildcat
Today, if you say Buick and Florida you might think of the stereotypical silver-haired driver possibly clogging up the left lane on Interstate 4. Congrats to today’s Buick because we think they are slowly moving away from the dowdy image that has plagued them for decades. Back in the ’60s, however, Buicks ruled. They were stylish, elegant and in some flavors, very sporty. And any car aficionado knows the ’63 Riviera could be one of the most beautiful American cars ever. Today we stumbled across this giant of car that somehow manages to pull off its girth and look damn beautiful. It is a 2-door, fastback design of the Buick Wildcat Coupe. We think it is extraordinary by any standard. This one has had 2 owners and accumulated only 76,000 miles. The interior is stunning and said to be original. It would be a little bit more special if it had the optional bucket seats and floor shifter but maybe the original owner had a lot of friends? It has a huge 430ci engine with a 4 barrel carb. What we also appreciate is the seller states everything works as it was designed. None of that “except this or except that” stuff. This appears to be a very nice example of a very useable classic car. The good news for buyers is that the best one on the planet would sell for $24,000 and decent drivers around $14,000. This one will be on the high side for sure. Click here for the eBay auction.
