1966 was the start of the final and perhaps most popular generation of the Buick Wildcat. Originally a subseries of the Buick Invicta, the Wildcat broke free from the Invicta line and became its own model in 1963. This 1966 Buick Wildcat is a gorgeous car with all the right lines. Packing the original drivetrain, killer white on black combo and a price tag that won't break the bank, this Buick is a great candidate for a daily driver.
This is the type of vehicle GM convertible enthusiasts will swoon over! The body is clean and fairly straight with minor dings, scratches, and chips showing. There is no major body damage, and if this paint is not original, it is an older repaint. It is nice enough to turn heads, but not so nice that you forget to enjoy driving it for fear of damage! The body does have a few small bubbles at the bottom of the fenders, but nothing out of the ordinary for a car this age.
The interior is extremely nice and complete and if it is not original it is very original-looking. However, there are two areas to be aware of inside the car: the carpet is faded in some places and the rear seat bottoms have tears in them. No other damage is present on any seats or panels. With new material on the backseat bottoms, and re-dying the carpet, the inside of this Buick would look almost new! Hidden in the glovebox is a more modern Pioneer radio for your cruising pleasure. Last but not least, the air conditioning blows ice cold!
Under the hood is the numbers-matching original Buick 401 Nailhead V8 hooked up to the original transmission. These 401s were Torque monsters. As such, this 401 left the factory with 340hp, but created an astonishing 445lbs of torque. Underneath the car is new exhaust with glasspack-style mufflers. This Buick appears to be a mostly original survivor car with a few tweaks such as aftermarket wheels and the new exhaust. The original wheel covers are included with the sale, but the original steel wheels are not available. All in all, this Buick would be an excellent and very affordable choice for a cruiser. It's a lot of car for the money!
