1970 Buick Estate Wagon - Loaded - Special Ordered when new - SOLD!
Remember when you used to load the kids in your 3-seated station wagon and
head for an amusement park or for a camp out with all your stuff on top of
the car? Or, in my case as an only child, the family of 3 slept in the car
instead of a motel on vacations. Well, those days are gone, but a few of
the great cars like this one still exist and now instead of kids you have
time and you have grandkids.
This 1970 Buick Estate Wagon is loaded, seats 9 and is ready to go anywhere
you want to take the grandkids. It has plenty of power with the 455-4
motor to get you where you want to go. Features include power windows,
power door locks, power bench seat, power disk brakes, tilt, air
conditioning, AM/FM AND an 8 track tape player!
The vast array of receipts will go with the car when it is sold. This
wagon was originally special ordered by and for the very first Buick dealer
in Oregon and bore the Dealer 1 tag. It has nearly option that could be
purchased at the time, sits on a full convertible box, has truck rear
axles, a limited slip rear end and is a good highway hauler. This car was
used for deliveries and hauled merchandise back and forth from Portland to

years and as you can see, the interior is outstanding.

1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!

and 83k miles since new. This is an incredibly rare Wildcat Convertible
with the highly desirable matching numbers 455 cu in big block V-8 with
Rochester four barrel carburetor. 1970 was the last year for the Buick
Wildcat and was the only year for the formidable 455 V-8!
This is likely that out of only 1,244 Wildcat Convertibles only about 200
were made in this configuration since the vast majority of the Wildcats
were specified with the 350... and what a difference the big block makes!
This example is presented in Signal Red and has seen one average quality
repaint since new. The coachwork has a few minor "door dings" and other
imperfections but overall is in good condition and the paint finish is
quite serviceable. We thoroughly examined this for bondo and rust and
found the body to be in very good condition with no signs of rust or
significant body damage. Overall this motorcar can be presented at local
car shows but in not a concours contender.
The interior is a combination of original and new replacement. There are a
couple of dash pad cracks and minor imperfection but overall the interior
is in good condition and very serviceable as is. The top is newer and in

example is also equipped with factory air conditioning that is presently

bearings, and a four barrel carburetor. This drivetrain provided
performance of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 126 mph!

sales dropped considerably and the Wildcat was dropped completely from the
This example was sold new in Arizona in March of 1970. It remained in
Arizona except for a brief stint as part of a collection in Ohio (although
we are uncertain whether the car ever left the state). It is presently in
excellent mechanical condition as it has accumulated about 2,000 miles in
the last few months!!
This motorcar is in good condition overall and can be used for extensive
touring, car shows or as a daily driver!!
