This 1953 Buick Super Estate Wagon is believed to be one of only 1,830 Super Estate Wagons built for 1953. The highly attractive wood bodies for the wagons were handcrafted by Ionia Body Company of Michigan, which had been performing their craft on Buick automobiles since 1949. A limited-production “Woodie wagon”, it carried a staggering $3,430 price tag when new, making it the most expensive variant of the Buick Super line.

For 1953, the redesigned Buick Supers were offered with an all-new and entirely modern 322 cubic-inch, valve-in-head V-8 engine entirely developed and engineered by Buick Division. The new V-8 was rated to produce up to 170 horsepower for on Supers equipped with the Dynaflow automatic transmission-equipped Supers, such as the example offered here. The popularity of the redesigned bodywork with the new V-8 engine proved spectacularly popular
