'61 Buick Special wagon!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, decided to post this done by a very good builder and friend of mine from Puerto Rico, Christopher Alicea. It's an original AMT kit that he painted with Dupli-Color Black and topped with Urethane Clear. He also used Pegasus rims on it. I think it looks terrific, what do you guys think??? :)

I just can't get into those rims. Other than that, a very nice build.

I have one downstairs that I plan to restore before much longer.

Cool wagon!:)

My second car was a 4door 62 Buick Special that I got from my Mom! I wanted her 55 Cadillac but she wouldn't let that go for 5 more years!

It had the 215 V8 with a 4barrell carb and three speed manual trans. It was white and I added a blacked out grill blacked the bulge down the hood center with a pinstipe outline and blacked out the cove across the back between the tail lights.

Added a set of Radir wheels and iger Paw Tires! Cool car! Wish I still had pictures of it!

If I could find a kit of the 4 door I would try and replicare it in smakk scale!:rolleyes:

I have to agree with Mr. Larkin here . The rims do nothing for such a beautiful car such as this was . The overall exicution of such a rare model is indeed flawless ! Please send me the rims as I do have a good use for them , on my 61 Special wagon that will be part of a service station diorama ......... Ed Shaver

Oh, man, that is KILLER!!! A shame AMT killed the tooling for this thing when they turned it into a Nova wagon, then turned the Nova wagon into the Boss Nova drag car. B) This kit, and a few more of the Jo-Han '61 Olds F-85 wagons, has been on my wish list for a very long time!

Seriously?? They killed this for a Nova?? Man alive..... I've got an Olds, but the Buick would trump it!

That's really SWEET!!! I love those old Buick's, the front end looks almost post modern. Kind of like a couple of knife edges coming at you...

My brother in law has a '63 Skylark that I keep pushing him to get back to work on, it has the all aluminum 215c.i. and is a really solid car, just a little body work and she's ready to roll...
