Buick Sport Wagon

Monday 11 May 2015
The General Motors Buick Sport Wagon was a mid-size station wagon and a corporate sister of the Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser. Featuring a raised roof and skylights over the cargo and second seat area, this model was an extended wheelbase version of the Buick Skylark station wagon. Buick Sport Wagons were built in three generations, spanning 1964–67, 1968–69, and 1970–72. During this time period, this was the only luxury level station wagon offered under the Buick model line. The last generation did not receive the skylights.
An innovative model was introduced on February 4, 1964. Using the new GM A platform (RWD) the Sport Wagon used a 120-inch (3,048 mm) wheelbase, that was 5 inches (127 mm) longer than the other Skylark four-door sedans and wagons. The 1964 to 1967 Sport Wagons had a Skyroof that consisted of four tinted glass panels surrounding the elevated section of the roof. A forward-facing third row of seats was optional. Sport Wagons were available in standard and more upscale "Custom" trim package.
