    1965 Buick Wildcat or LeSabre Parts Car

    I know this is a long shot, but maybe someone here has passed by or otherwise knows about a 1965 Buick (LeSabre or Wildcat) that is for sale. I'm looking for a project car, or a parts car. My immediate need is a hood, but since I'm going to have to travel to get one, I might as well get as many spares as I can get.

    My hood latch failed and I had my hood plastered against my windshield - the hood trim down the center put a nice dent in the roof, and the hood is bent up beyond help. (It has rust holes in it anyway - I probably needed another one anyway.)

    There was a guy at the Manassas, VA Cruise-In on Saturday that has a Buick Wildcat for sale. Think it is a '65. It could be a '66. Red convertible. I got a pic of the car and think that it has the For Sale phone number on it. BTW - This guy has been trying to sell this car for about 2.5 years. So I am guessing that he might be high on his asking price and ain't budging.

    My mom had a wildcat! I would love to restore one and let her drive it. She isn't a car girl at all but her eyes seem to light up when she talks about the wildcat.

    I'll keep my eyes open, there is a 66 ragtop around here but in pretty darn good condition, I used to have a 70 Wildcat - only year with the 455.

    That 455 was the sweetest engine Buick Division put out. Talk about 135 MPH. .....No problem. I had a 69 Charger .... only 2 cars walked by it. I was flat out driving from the mine I was working at... & I was 20 years old. 383CI. 4 Barrel Rated at 335HP with 323 gears. I was ahead of both. The Buick & a 70 T Bird would fall back until I hit 135 MPH ..... They both walked by me... I figure 150 MPH..... Don't tell me I'm full of Crap this is the TRUTH. I'm sure the highway gears made the difference. I was Humbled.

    I know of a two door 64 olds jetstar, but they're probably nowhere similar!

    yep, mine would do the same, it was a barge off the line but once it hit 30 mph it was like a turbo kicked in and wouldn't stop, was a great 30 - 130 car - and very few people (except for car people) new what a Wildcat even was. And those are actually hubcaps on the car - never saw another pair like that but I heard they were out there.

    Here's the Wildcat from Saturday's show in Manassas. Unfortunately, the "For Sale" sign didn't have a phone number on it.

    Go to E Bay. I found Buick parts for my 1950 there. No problem.
