Cool Ride...Upgrades Needed: 1964 Buick SportWagon

This next car is something close to my heart...and I'm genuinely curious to see how much it gets when the gavel hits the block, because it isn't too far from the '65 SportWagon that I've got sitting in my garage. Unfortunately, this one has the lower spec Wildcat 310 V8 (instead of the upgraded 4bb Wildcat 355) and it has non boosted single circuit drum brakes (yikes!!) and no AC or power steering...but it does have what appears to be a nice coat of light blue paint and the interior isn't bombed out.  For someone who doesn't mind adding a few safety upgrades (power boosted dual-circuit brake upgrade kits are cheap and easy to install...just some time needed) it could be a great weekend cruiser.  And swap those wheels/tires too! Find this 1964 Buick SportWagon here on eBay bidding for $6,600 with a few hours to go, located in Eden Prairie, MN with a few hours to go.

  1. 1st thing to notice is that its a Skylark wagon and not a Sportwagon. Looks pretty good if the price stays reasonable. Kind of curious about where that water line is going as the heater core is plugged off. They're getting harder to find so no telling where the sale price will end up or if it clears the seller's reserve.

  2. Stupid question...what is the difference betwix a Skylark wagon and a SportWagon? And don't say one is Port and the other is Kylark!!

    1. The Sport Wagon has a 4-inch longer wheelbase, but I think the Skylark was also a typically a lower optioned car, even though it had the cooler looking seat covers.
