Buick Super Estate Wagon

This Buick estate wagon was one of the most expensive, and now most rare, of all the Buicks built in 1950. Only 2,480 customers gave one a home. It was the choice for the affluent growing families across the country. The estate wagons were custom finished by Ionia Manufacturing, which produced wood bodies for Buick from 1946–1964.

124 hp, 263.3 cu. in. inline eight-cylinder engine, Buick Dynaflow automatic transmission, front and rear coil spring suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 121.5 in.

Part of the RM Auctions event for Charlie Thomas in October, 2012.
