Nice wagon -- remember not long ago when nobody cared about these...  Which engine, 455 or 350?

Lamar ,

Bought out of an estate in 2012 of a 92 year old lady , 99000 mi

Then sold to a couple that drove across  county to Michigan

Used until Dec 2018 and put on the board for sale  , no sale . Sat for a year .

Put back on the board for sale Nov 2019 , bought it with 107900 mi

The transporter who pick the car up said it was snowing like hell

and 17 degree , and it started  right up and drove on the trailer .

The 2 way tail gate only works in the fold down position , rusted latch , needs love !

BIG heavy duty hitch but the part that slides in is frozen

 in place . I'm soaking it good and will try heat soon .

The grandkids will name it on Christmas Day , BERTHA BUICK , BEIGE BETTY 

It really looks like the  Griswold Ford in " Christmas Vacation "

Have a Great Christmas and Happy New Year 

Bill

Washington State , no rust in floors and never undercoated but lower fenders

and quarters have holes , tire well is gone and rear storage area has couple

small holes . Frame is solid . 

Got tags and insurance on her and went for a drive . Just had to push her

and wow the orange rust color smoke  out of the tail pipe , had to laugh .

Ran up to 60 with no problems .

Christmas day my granddaughters met the Buick and had fun with the rocker. One granddaughter is in the rocker, the other is behind the wheel with our sheltie

in the passenger seat. The family had a great time laughing about the old Buick, reminding them of the movie Christmas Vacation.
