Fireball Powered: 1962 Buick Special

Filed Under (Buick) by Station Wagon Finder on 03-13-2012

This 1962 Buick Special station wagon is described as a ‘pristine original classic’ with just 47,285 miles on the odometer. The deep sculpting that defines a ’62 Buick works well on this wagon. Described as rust free throughout, there has been one repaint in the correct Mirror Magic Laquer paint that the seller says is an off white color. The pictures aren’t the greatest, but to us the color looks more like a light yellow. The all vinyl interior which was touted by Buick as ‘Childproof’ appears to have held up extremely well after 50 years. Mechanically the car is said to run, drive and stop well.

The ’62 Specials came with an all new “Fireball V6″ engine that was the first ever American produced V6.  The engine was derived from Buick’s 215 c.i. aluminum V8 and was basically the same architecture as the V8 minus 2 cylinders. Cast in iron, the V6 was cheaper than the aluminum V8 but added 35 lbs to the engine.

You can find this 1962 Buick on  Ebay.
