Dont be fooled by the 20-inch wheels, this 1964 Buick Wildcat hardtop is still 100% Buick and 100% awesome. Its one of those special GM cars with unique features, and with a monster 425 cubic inch mill under the hood, its just a fantastic piece of luxury muscle with all the right features. There were few more stylish cars on the road than the Buick Wildcat in 1964, with Buicks trademark sweeping body lines and chiseled good looks. Thanks to a high-quality repaint in Sonic Blue, it looks spectacular with a sophisticated air to it that only a Buick could wear. Its two-stage urethane, so the shine is deep and clear and thanks to expert care since it was done, it shows only a few signs of use. Buick was big on drama, so theres a deeply recessed grille, cool gills on the front fenders, and a surprisingly sleek roofline that you wouldnt expect on a Buick. The chrome and stainless trim is original and given that this car has never left the warm, dry south, its no surprise that its in great shape. Sure, theres a little patina to it, but theres no part that stands out as too nice or too shabby to be on this car and since its original, you know its crisp and authentic. This is one great-looking car. The two-tone blue interior isnt totally stock, but its an awesome contrast to the bright blue paint and its all-day comfortable. Thats the original bench seat wearing fresh upholstery and the door panels have been stitched to match. The carpets and headliner were probably replaced at the same time, but again, nothing jumps out as too new or too old so it all looks right. The wide dash has lots of jewelry, including a wide band of bright metal trim to give the Wildcat a sophisticated air, and the only part that isnt original is the billet steering wheel which looks great nonetheless. And if its road trips you enjoy, then the massive back seat and trunk will be assets, with the trunk carrying black carpet that looks clean and tidy. Buicks 425 cubic inch Nailhead V8 was renowned for massive torque production, and its just beautifully detailed. A custom air cleaner sits on top of dual Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetors and an Elco intake manifold, so power delivery is plenty snappy, even for such a big car. Correct turquoise paint makes the engine look correct, and the period finned valve covers and valley pan, it has a bit of a racy attitude. Features include power steering and power brakes, and factory A/C (needs to be serviced) so this car feels luxurious and effortless in everything it does. The transmission is a TH400 3-speed automatic, which would eventually supersede the venerable Dynaflow, and it powers a set of reasonably tall gears out back, making this a great highway cruiser that just loafs along with the big block barely breaking a sweat. The dual exhaust burbles along happily at any speed and youll be shocked by just how clean this car is underneath; take a look! Those 20-inch Ridler wheels make a dramatic statement and are wrapped in 245/40/20 performance radials. This is a beautifully finished car that is big, powerful, and easy to get into, both literally and figuratively. An incredible value, this big Wildcat will definitely surprise you. Call today!

In the 1960s you bought a Buick because you wanted style to go with your power. Today that spirit has made them a true unique cruiser. And in the case of this 1964 Buick Wildcat, and its original 425ci V8, there might be no more affordable way to get a classy classic with this much power. These full-size Buicks had some of the best designs for the era. The styling is a little more curvaceous than the Olds and Cadillac C-bodies, and the lime gold style paint goes nicely with Buicks premium image. The designers really understood what it took to make a full-size premium coupe. That meant distinctive front and rear styling with impressive center points. Plus, not only did the bumpers follow this unique design, but also the lower side trim artfully connects with these wraparound units creating one cohesive perimeter. And while the whole car has a very original-style feel to it, the upgraded 18-inch wheels add extra flair to enhance the cool cruiser personality. The green of the interior nicely coordinates with the exterior color. Plus, the textured tan inserts add comfort and distinction. So youll happily leave the windows down to show the interior of this pillarless hardtop. This was Buicks full-size offering so theres plenty of room for you to comfortably share the classic car experience with family and friends. Youll love grabbing the factory dual-spoke steering wheel that gives a clear view of those large and bright gauge pods. And the dash has a great original look, right down to the factory AM radio thats still on display. Under the hood youll find a 425 cubic-inch V8. Not only is that the upgraded displacement for the 64 Wildcat, but also the consignor states this is the original motor to the car. The same is also true for the three-speed automatic transmission. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this V8 makes the right kind of power. And Buicks of this era were especially concerned about torque. After all, thats what makes this Wildcat so eager when its pulling away from the stoplights. This is a powerful and affordable cruiser with true distinction. So dont let this Wildcat slip away, call today!!!
