Buick’s Woodie Wagon Hits the Auction Block

How many of you have driven around in a wood-paneled car? If you never have, you have the opportunity to now.

According to Car Buzz, this 1947 Buick Roadmaster is up for auction. This top-of-the-line Roadmaster Estate Wagon made its debut in 1947, the ultimate rendition of the super series.

According to Buick legend, the only reason this model was developed was due to a wealthy lady’s complaint that a wagon version was not offered. This model had a sticker price of $3,249 – the most expensive Buick at the time. Flash forward to 2013, where this model – completely restored to its original condition – has a pre-sale auction value of between $90,000 and $120,000.

Following its restoration, the Roadmaster was on display at Meadow Brook Concours d’Elegance in 2008 and the Glenmoor Gathering in 2009. In a few weeks, it will be part of the Arizona Biltmore auction within a few weeks.

The Arnie Bauer team is curious: Would you bid on this Buick?
