That car must have been modified the day after it was bought in '62. It still has yellow '56 plates on it. They changed to black in '63.
That '56 wagon is unusual. If it is a 150 wagon it should have the dogleg trim on the quarter panel behind the door. Sedan delivery's didn't come...

I think whitewalls and mags are OK if you have the right combination.[ATTACH]
Chrome wheels with spiders. Dump the front 2 inches also.
Better make sure the title actually matches the VIN on the car.
Bought this the week after I graduated from high school in '72. Dropped axle, '57 PowerPak 283, Zephyr gears, black tuck and roll. Drove it home...
1965 Buick Wildcat called "Mystique". Built by Barris.
