RealRides of WNY - 1963 Wildcat

Well, that didn’t take long! In the spring of 1962 Buick introduced a two-door hardtop which they called a “…torrid new luxury sports car!” (bottom of page) Just a few months later this 1963 Buick Wildcat four-door hardtop was part of a new lineup which also consisted of a convertible as well as that original two-door hardtop. One of the big selling points of the original ’62 was the front bucket seat/console/lighted tach/floor shifter combo. However, the ’63 four-door came standard with a full bench seat and column shifter. Sports car? Umm, no. Two model years later somebody decided a Wildcat four-door sedan would also be a good idea. Good grief! We saw today’s RealRide last year parked in a yard in the Town of Dayton.
