    Odd I don't see rear diff gear ratio on the paper?

    Buy it now price is $47,500 I bet the reserve is 40-45000


    sweet ride don't think it will bring it but hey ya never know. I do remember seeing a very very low milage from an estate bring $32,000 about 8-10 years ago but it was an ORIGINAL vynil top car and very rare.


    Update carpet on the bottom of the drivers door is roached and not badly discolored. that seems strange. No pics of the gas and brake pedals either.

    The original window sticker also does not include the chrome-plated Buick road wheels, so they were also added at some point.

    Very nice but is there really such a thing as a $47,500 wagon? If there is I haven't seen one yet.

    It is a beauty. Too bad it lacks the 3rd seat. They always seem to miss something don't they? :) These Buick wagons especially - they either seem to have the wood-grain or the 3rd seat, you rarely see a 3-seat with wood-grain anymore.

    I would have rather had the 3rd seat option than the road wheels. I know a lot of people like the sportier wheels, but as far as the 60s-70s big cars go, I would just as soon have the full wheel covers. Nothing sporty about a big wagon anyway, they are luxury cars. :)

    I suppose the 3rd seat could be added as well, but finding the correct parts would be the challenge, 40 years later. :D

    Oh yeah, easily.....
    I don't think this one is worth $47k, or anywhere close to it, but there are quite a few wagons worth that money or more. Take a nice original or restored 1950 Ford Country Squire with the original flathead in it - probably at least $80k. These '57/'58 Buick and Olds hardtop wagons bring BIG bucks, whether original or modified. Easily worth in the $80k range....

    Not only would you have to add the third seat, but swap out the second row as well because of the passenger side access. Probably not worth the effort. Also the aftermarket vinyl top is incorrect; the factory vinyl top option would have covered the C-pillar with chrome trim at the bottom.
    Overall, this appears to be more like a $20k car IMO.

    Yep, this is what the vinyl roof should look like.

    Bidding for this loaded Buick clamshell has been much more sluggish than I would have thought. :confused:
