In February 1964 Buick added the Sportwagon to its new A-body platform lineup.  The Sportwagon was Buick’s version of the widely known Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, in which both models featured four tinted glass panels surrounding the elevated section of the roof.  The wheelbase, at 120 inches, was five inches longer than all other Skylark sedans and wagons.  The added length and ceiling height provided Buick with the ability to offer an option front-facing third-row seat, which the example featured here is not equipped with.

Jimmy, the current caretaker of this 1964 Buick Sportwagon, is the second owner of this 45K mile survivor. The car was willed to Jimmy by his deceased friend who was the original owner. An undertaker, the original owner had this Sportwagon painted black and used it as a flower car for many years as part of his funeral parlor’s small fleet. While the exterior paint is worn, the interior presents in like-new condition as hardly anyone but the driver ever rode in the car.

Here’s a picture highlighting this car’s trim tag:

The “06E”, “64-4255”, and “FB” confirm this car is a 1964 Buick Skylark Standard Two-Row (six-passenger) Sportwagon produced during the fifth week of June 1964 in the division’s Flint, Michigan assembly plant.  The “021” confirms the car’s original blue interior while the “FC” validates this Sportwagon came painted from the factory in Marlin Blue.  At this time, we cannot decode what the “WG-2P-3S-4N-50” options indicate on the trim tag.

    other than the paint is there anything wrong with the car? Is there any rust or rust repair? Is the car completely roadworthy or does it need anything?

      The car is roadworthy and the 330 Wildcat motor runs great. Our understanding is the car is all original with no rust repair. We’re reaching out to the seller this morning to see if he can provide pictures of the underside to confirm car is rust-free. Stay tuned!

        An engine picture and more pictures of the interior would help as well, especially the headliner knowing how bad the top windows could leak.

    Just a note, the 300 inch Buick V8 is not a “nailhead” as mentioned. The valve covers are similar but it is actually a more modern design.

    Can we see pictures of the newly discovered rust “pin holes”? Need to know how extensive they are and if the entire quarter panels need replacing. Thanks much. Also, I love your site.
