1963 Buick Wildcat 4 Door Hardtop (Sarge's Barge)
Last updated Jun 21, 2010
I bought the car on Ft. Lewis here in Washington for $1500. The guy I bought it from was attempting to restore it but didn't have the time. It was in pretty good shape mechanically, but needed some body and paint. Rust was minimal, and there were not many dents. The interior was just about perfect other than two small tears in the back seat. Not bad for 46 years old. The am radio works, but I had to put in a stereo system as the radio just wasn't enough.
I found the original dealership that sold the car, but they don't have records going back that far as to who they originally sold the car to.
I've been working on restoring it for about 4 years now.
