Postwar Buicks offered the widest selection of automobiles in the company ’ s history and in the ensuing years they remained unmatched in the scope of their model line. With a melting pot of ideas, Buick ’ s Super Series turned out to be a success, especially when the lithe chassis and powerful engine were combined with one of the attractive woodie wagon bodies.

Finished in dark green with tan leather interior, the Buick we have the pleasure of presenting here was fully restored in the late 1990s by noted specialist Mr. Bud Hicks. Hicks, a true master craftsman, has since retired from the profession but his reputation remains excellent within Buick circles. The previous owner believed that the Woodie was originally painted burgundy, however it was the owner ’ s desire to have the Buick refinished in the attractive green livery it displays today. We understand that nearly all the wood paneling is thought to be original and only one section to the driver's side rear of the car appears to have been replaced. The engine and bay also appear to be highly detailed and is in very presentable overall condition.

While this example is described as ‘ not a trailer queen ’ , it is certainly very attractive, with all systems operating as one would expect. Additionally, it has seen only limited use over the last several years and it awaits its next owner ’ s discretion as to its use, whether for weekend cruises to the beach or Woodie events held throughout the United States.
