Default Rare '65 Superwildcat 4 Speed

A very rare car. Maybe the nearest "Musclecar" to a Cadillac ever
Considering it is a Buick, a 4 Speed, dual quad, and has that Musclecar Look, even it is big as Texas.
85 Coupes built. 65 Custom, 15 Deluxe, 5 Standard. Then there were 21 Convertibles and one 4 door!

2 Ragtops and two Coupes are known to exist. The Coupes are both black, and belong to me and my buddy.
Not a lot of people know abut these special cars. For me the 65 Wildcat is one of the best looking cars ever.

Hi Jeff, that exactly happened to me. As a kid in the late 70's I found a very used model car, which was a Wildcat from company "Siku" I thought wow. Years later I found a old German car magazine with a 66 Coupe, and then I had it burnt into my brain!
Now I have 4 real ones ...

Those late Nailhead dual quads ooze cool. Funny, first thing we used to do is toss those snorkel air cleaners. Now you see a big chrome dual snorkel, and jaws drop. I collected all those parts after a buddy donated a '66 425 for my '36. He swears it used to be a dual quad but was outfitted with a single 4 at the time. I always questioned his memory but had to apologize later. After researching, the W code 425s in the second half of '66 could be outfitted with dual quads at the dealer. Only the first half of '66 were they fitted at the factory.

I love this! My first 'real' car was a '66 Skylark GS 401/4-speed convertible so I'm really partial to these.
