1968 Buick Wildcat

Here is photograph of my 1968 Buick Wildcat 2 door sports coupe. It’s not a very common car and definitely very unique in its own way! Sure it’s a “BIG” car as some see it but in 1968, this car came with a 430ci big block engine teamed with a heavy duty Turbo-hydramatic 400 transmission. The engine put out 360 hp with 475ft/lbs of torque. That’s what I call a “grocery getter”!! I have owed this car for 10 years and have enjoyed many cruises with the family and simple car rides to the ice cream parlor. And of course, once in a while I do get groceries with it.

    You have a great car there, Sir! Before I went into the service 60 years ago, my late ex-father-in-law had 1966 Buick Wildcat. He was a body and fender man at local autobody shop. Took the wrecked car and made it look like new. Those GMs were some great cars. I got to drive it about 120 miles it was great!

    I worked in Buick Plant #36 where the 430 engine was built. Couple years later they switched to the 455 ci. Worked there from September 1965 - Jan 2004
