1953 Buick Special WOODIE
53 Buick Super Woody Station Wagon
1953 was a great year for General Motors, many new innovations and
notable styling was introduced into the American automobile scene. If
you wanted the ultimate station wagon and had $3,500 to spend, this
was what you would buy. '53 Woody Estate Wagons count for less than
.5% of Buicks production that year, making this car a very rare wagon.
'53 was the first year for 12V electric system and the last year you could
get woody wagons in America.
The odometer is reading 36,373 miles, we have no way to document
this, but this car is mostly unrestored. It has been maintained over theyears including a repaint at some point. The wood appears to be
original with some possible patches towards the rear but we are not
positive about that, it has been re finished and well cared for. The
brightwork is all original on this car, the bumpers and trim show some
patina but are presentable.
The interior is the correct materials and could very well be the original
interior. The dash is all original and is beautiful along with the steering
wheel and chrome trim. At the rear of the interior the trunk and spare
tire well is original and has some lite rust under the spare tire. All of
the glass appears original and does have some small scratches but is
not cracked or broken.
Under the hood is the original 322 V-8 that is mated to the original 2-
speed automatic transmission. It has been cleaned up but could use
more detailing to be show worthy. The engine has been well
maintained and is very drivable.
This Woodie is 66 years old and has survived the test of time. Being
only 1 of 1,830 produced I would guess very few are in existence. This car can be enjoyed as-is and is considered a â€œdriver qualityâ€ car. It is not a show car.
