Vehicle Description

This is an EXTREMELY RARE 1949 Buick Super Woody Wagon - Series 50. The Buick Series 50 Super Estate Wagon is very rare as the 1949 model was one of a kind, it was only available that year. About 653 of these Series 50 Super Wagons were built and 21 of them were for export. Recent reports say that there is only 15 - 20 of these wagons are left. A much lesser number of them are in the condition this one is. The Series 50 Wagon is Rear Wheel drive with of course Automatic transmission (Dynaflow). It has a big Block straight 8 Cylinder engine with about 150 HP. The Wagon will come with Buick Shop manuals so you can maintain and service the car properly. This Wagon is in extremely good condition, including the original wood which has been restored before. The car has undergone restoration before as well and can be seen in it's condition. Other than that, is all original and in amazing condition (See Pictures). This wagon has been in the same family for over fifteen years and was in storage for a few years, it has recently been brought out of storage and was restored once again and serviced to get it back on the road. The engine was serviced; the radiator replaced along with the belt and radiator hoses. Also replaced was the battery -brand new Interstate Battery. She runs and drives excellently. The Dynaflow transmission shifts as it should and all gears work perfectly. The Dynaflow transmissions were known to leak, and this is does trickle about a teaspoon of oil once a week if not driven. The car is in impeccable condition and would be rare to find one at all, let alone in this condition. It recently had a brake job done which involved flushing the entire brake system and replacing some parts like brake pistons, etc. The interior is remarkable and the amazing craftsmanship is in tiptop condition. Recently installed new carpeting front and rear The leather is in excellent condition as is the wood and other interior trim. It has the standard bench seats front and rear. It is currently registered and of course does not require SMOG certificate. All the electrical features work and the wagon still has the original 6V Electrical system - it's pretty much all original. The radio works and even the rare Driver's Door Spot / Search light works-however the bulb in there is burnt out.There are some things that should probably be replaced on the car. The front control arm ball joints could be replaced as the rubber boots are failing. They are full of new grease though, so the ball joints themselves work fine. All the chrome was recently polished and is in great condition - this included all the turn signals, trim, lights, etc. The car exterior is in excellent condition. It does have a chip here and there in the paint This is your chance to acquire a true American classic and a piece of automotive history.
