BUICK 1946 station wagon

Possibly a pro-car? It's a odd shaped quarter glass and rear gate in my opinion. The photos and examples of professional cars I've seen,built by the usual coachbuilders (Sayers & Scovill, Flxible, Miller-Meteor, et al were usually more "flowing", curved than this one.

The lines of the rear fender and quarter panels throw me a curve, I would think a little elaborate for a back yard build.

The wagons were 4 door and they were essesntially wood bodies. This appears to be a Buick front mated to a sedan delivery back end. </div></div>

This car is in France by the link. http://monsite.orange.fr/gandreolds/

Buicks built-assembled in countries other than USA - Canada can be very different to what was made & sold in USA - Canda.

But however aggree with <span style="font-weight: bold">The Old Guy </span>it look like sedan delivery back end grafted to a Buick

Gandre,

I wonder if it is possible that these came along somewhere with the Marshall Plan where a lot of surplus items in the US found there way as donations to European governments after WWII? If so, it may have a plaque affixed somewhere on the vehicle. This may be something that was complete and partially stripped some years ago, but it also looks now like something partially built and never finished.

But, I agree with others that the rear fender sweep looks like some professional work went into it.

Keep us informed if you learn more, please.

John
