Buick Estate Wagon benefitted from a total redesign in 1971, with fashionable “fuselage” styling. The car utilized Buick’s 455-cid V-8. A Custom trim was available on the Estate Wagon, and it added wood grain trim and upgraded upholstery. Plush Limited interiors were also available.

The engine that year remained the same, the result was a 225 hp V-8 (= 228 PS). For 1973, the cars obtained 5-mph front bumper and a new grille. The following year, the Estate Wagon received a significant facelift including new rear bumpers. Engine power dipped to 210 hp.

Driving and riding in a Buick Estate Wagon is a treat, as the cars are comfortable, spacious, and quiet. The model is relatively abundant. Buyers tend to seek out 1971 and 1972 models due to their more powerful engines, with convertibles being the preferred body style. Any Estate Wagon of this era should deliver a trouble-free experience, or at least should not cost too much to put right. Prices remain affordable, so these cars can be fun first-time classic cars.

The three-seat 1974 Estate Wagons are easily the heaviest Buicks ever built. The 1975 and 1976 models were the longest station wagons ever built.

The Estate Wagons also featured a new 'clamshell' tailgate design, marketed as the Glide-away Tailgate, where the rear power-operated glass slid up into the roof as the lower tailgate (manually or with power assist), slid into a recess under the cargo floor. Ultimately, the manual lower tailgate was supplanted by the power tailgate. The tailgate system was operated by switches on the instrument panel or a key switch on the rear quarter panel. Like a top-hinged tailgate, the clamshell design allowed a user to stand directly at the open cargo area without impediment, facilitating loading and unloading in tight spaces. The rear seat could be folded flat for additional cargo, and incorporated a 60/40 split so that extended cargo and passengers could be accommodated.

This example was brought to Czech Republic only a couple of years ago from Holland. It has a Czech historic registration and it is accompanied by the previous Dutch registration paperwork and condition report.

Although the car is rebuilt to be powered also by LNG, the original carburettors are included in the sale for an easy rebuilt to original specification.

The car needs to be taken care for, but this most sought after, most powerful version is very difficult to find in Europe. And for this price level, you can get a powerful and practical first time classic. It is currently registered on Czech historic plates and owned by a well-known Czech artist.
