Classic vintage chrome wire wheels wide white wall tires. Vintage, beautiful, and distinct, this 1956 Buick Special Deluxe Estate Wagon is one of those rare opportunities where a premium classic that loves to turn heads is also a strong-runner that can be taken to more places for everyone to enjoy.
While Special was a classic designation at Buick, these wagons were truly something special. The bodies were built by the Iona Manufacturing Co.
Instead of Fisher, and collectors love showing off that on the body tag. It proves that the wagons were a distinct creation from their coupe, sedan, and convertible siblings.These were the most expensive cars of their series, and so there is a premium sense of style that this one shows off quite well. The Dover White and Glacier Green is the correct combo, and it has a brilliant gloss and depth that's aided by a modern clearcoat application. And we love how these colors are divided across the body. The lower section utilizes the side trim to add emphasis to the stylish dip line in the profile, and the upper boundary draws added attention to the special wagon roofline. It would not look this striking if the panels were not so straight and the trim was not exceptionally bright.
This straight, clean, and bright look is especially appreciated in the front where Buick combined the boldness of its mirror-like bumper/grille combo with the gentle curves that run through the hood. Even the wheels are a thoughtful piece where the classic wire rims adds elegance while also adding to the brightwork shine, and the whitewalls are bright enough to coordinate with the paint.Yes, this is an impressive total package. The two-tone green interior continues this car's factory-correct color presentation.
The door panels, dash pad, and both rows of seats have a supple feel that tell you there was the right investment in keeping this interwoven color package looking and feeling so inviting. The sea of green is broken up by thoughtful gray carpeting that feels plush and conceals more dirt. Sit in the driver's seat, and you are treated to a bright styling masterpiece. The steering wheel is purely built for elegance with a full chrome trim ring and Buick crest in the center.
Everything from the speedometer to the heat/defrost controls feel like part of a vintage layout. The split tailgate reminds you these were great picnic machines, and the sale even comes with some classic luggage you can use as part of your display. Of course there's still plenty of room back there for you to also carry chairs and supplies to spend all day at the car show. Buick's 322 cubic-inch Nailhead V8 is the correct motor for the Special, and this is even a year-correct block.So since it's believed to be original to the car, it's great to have such an authentic total presentation. But being a time capsule doesn't mean missing out on maintenance. It has been properly respected and had the right upgrades including an electric fuel pump.
That's why it fires up eagerly and runs strong. Buick's Dynaflow automatic transmission offers a smooth operation, and so this feels terrific going down the road. You'll love driving this Super everywhere thanks to power steering, power brakes, and Buick's legendary supple ride. Complete with owner's manual, this is the sharp-looking rare wagon that's built to look great and still love a road trip. So if you love a true classic of distinction, don't miss this deal.
