RealRides of WNY - 1969 Buick Wildcat

By the time this 1969 Buick Wildcat hit the showrooms, the nameplate had undergone quite a change. Introduced in 1962 as a sub-series of the Invicta, it was poised to do battle with the likes of Pontiac’s new Grand Prix in the new personal luxury coupe genre. Where the Grand Prix really took off, the Wildcat went down a different path, branching out to a full lineup of two- and four-door hardtops as well as a convertible for 1963; MY 1964 saw the addition of — gasp! — a four-door sedan. It would be 1990 before the Grand Prix added a second set of doors; the Wildcat nameplate rode off into the sunset after the 1970 model year. This white example was seen a few summers ago in Niagara Falls.
