Vehicle Description

Introduced in early 1964, the Buick Sport Wagon was based on the Skylark Wagon but with a slightly longer wheelbase and a new, innovative Skyroof consisting of four tinted glass panels surrounding the elevated section of the roof. Based on GM’s A-body platform which it shared with Oldsmobile’s Vista Cruiser, the Sport Wagon was produced for a short time as a separate Buick model and later as a trim level of the Skylark but was only offered with the skylight roof from ’64 to ’69. This 1965 Sport Wagon is powered by an optional 300 cubic-inch Wildcat 355 V8 engine backed up by an optional Super Turbine 300 2-speed automatic transmission, and features power steering and power brakes with a front disc brake conversion while the entire suspension has been rebuilt, both front and rear. According to the cowl tag, the car is a two-seat custom model, which was a higher trim level than the base model and was ordered with a number of desirable options, such as two-tone paint, back up lights with parking brake light, tinted windshield, automatic transmission, and the optional Wildcat 355 engine. Restored in its original two tone color scheme of Flame Red with a white roof, the exterior of the Sport Wagon shows excellently while the red interior which has been reupholstered in the original style but features a modern Pioneer stereo hidden under the passenger seat while the original Buick AM unit still resides in the dash. Other interior features include a Sunpro Super Tach, and a pair of Sunpro gauges which monitor water temperature and oil pressure, while an original working G.E. spotlight lives on the driver side of the car. As for exterior features, the car features a factory roof rack, but the main attraction is the skylight roof, which features all original glass as does the rest of the car, except the windshield which has been replaced at one point. The Sport Wagon rides on B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A 235/60R15 tires mounted on a set of Buick Rally wheels, which give the wagon just the right look. As one of just 8,300 Custom V8 Sport Wagons built for 1965, this Buick is not only a cool cruiser that looks, sounds, and drives great, it is also a rare as well. As a vintage station wagon, this ’65 Sport Wagon is as useful as it is fun and the Skyroof makes it even better.
