    1938 Buick Series 90 with French coachwork

    Dave, the '38 Series 90 with Binder body is still offered for sale: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/buick/90/2111682.html

    Hershey 2018

    Lamar, it may simply be coincidence, but the 1947 Buick Dealer Planning Guide included an image of "Shore Buick". This is clearly a drawing, and I don't know whether this particular concept was ever built or whether it had any connection to the Shore Buick that your cool sign came from, but thought I'd pass this along:

    FOR SALE: Another 1957 Roadmaster 75 !!

    Here is another '57 Roadmaster 75 that has been teasing me during the recent past. Not perfect, but it looks like there's lots of potential here for the $5,000 asking price. Located close to Tacoma, Washington: https://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/ctd/d/1957-buick/6691002437.html
  4. No, it's a Packard.

  7. Not a vintage image here, but perhaps it fits the topic!

    Very interesting that this car has only a single sidemount. I thought that the sidemount option was always a dual sidemount option on the '38 Specials. EDIT: Just noticed that the sidemount fender is present in the top photo; only the sidemount spare is missing. So, it was originally a dual sidemount car.

    1941 Special - 2-dr convertible

    The car is a Special -- not a Roadmaster.

    1962 Invicta wagon, project, loaded, MA.

    I agree that this would be a fantastic car when completed! Here's another Invicta Estate Wagon. It's a '59, offered in British Columbia, Canada. While lacking the bright upper window frame moldings, it is equipped with power windows and Autronic Eye. And the factory color appears to be beautiful Tawny Rose. https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/pml/cto/d/1959-buick-invicta-wagon/6676557349.html

    A friend captured a better photo of the instrument panel of my 1959 Electra.

    Help Identifiying and Looking for a 1960 Wagon

    This was true for both 1959 and 1960. Here is a 1960 Invicta Estate Wagon. (This one happens to be an Invicta Custom with the leather bucket seat interior.) Note the bright stainless trim along the roof rail.

    1965 Buick Wildcat GS

    Wolfstar, I have owned two 1965 Buick Wildcat 2-door hardtops. There were three different model numbers produced, with the difference among them being the interior trim: 6237 - Wildcat 6437 - Wildcat Deluxe 6637 - Wildcat Custom Your car is the Wildcat Deluxe, with an interior that was the same as that of a LeSabre Custom. Your car does have the bucket seat option, which was not particularly common on the Wildcat Deluxe. The car is equipped with the short, non-operating console. The console style is often referred to as the "ironing board" console, and was phased out during the course of the 1965 model. As others have said, no Wildcat GS was offered or built for the 1965 model year. Regardless, your car is beautiful. I love it.

    We had a professional photographer along for our recent thousand mile cruise to my old hometown in Eastern Oregon, and here are some of my favorite Buick images from the weekend: 1) and 2): My '59 Electra 3): John Courter's '56 Century at the Eltrym Theater (Eltrym = Myrtle spelled backwards. Mytrle was the first owner's wife's name.) 4): Roger Bourml's '64 Riviera near the Old Oregon Trail, on his return trip from the BCA Nationals in Denver 5): Chuck & Karla Russell's '53 Special and John Courter's '56 Century at the Baker Garage -- 105-yr. old Buick dealership
