Buick Wildcat Custom or Deluxe?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1965 Buick Wildcat convertible that's been family owned since new.  How can I determine if it is a Custom or Deluxe?

Easy, Google produced this page:

See what the body tag numbers match.

 

Actually, it's the VIN that matters, and yes the VINs are different for Custom and Deluxe, as described in the page that Frank linked to.

Thanks Frank & Joe! 

 

It's a Custom and according to my price guides, they are worth a little more than the Deluxe model.  I'll be putting the car on the market soon as I need the space and have not used it hardly at all in the last 20 years.

 

Again, thanks!

Yes, the numbers for the Style, ST are the Year (two digit) and the first numbers of the VIN, aka GM Division, Series and Body Style.

 

Of course, the VIN better match the body tag!😉
