1986 Buick Century Limited Estate Wagon, Black (no faux wood) with Tan Cloth Interior. I special ordered this car in the fall of 1985 from the Buick dealer in Lake Forest, IL, with every available option. This car is very rare because it has Front Bucket Seats with Automatic on a Full Operating Console between the seats. Additionally this vehicle is equipped with the following other options: 3.8 liter Sequential Port Fuel Injection, 6 Way Power Front Driver Seat, Reclining Front Bucket Seats, Air Conditioining, Electric Windows, Electric Door Locks, Tilt/Sliding Sunroof with Sliding Sunshade, AM-FM Stereo Radio with Graphic Equalizer and Tape Player, Tilt Wheel, Twilight Sentinel, Automatic Level Control, Map Light, Cruise Control, Folding Vinyl Folding Third Seat, Operable Vent Windows in Cargo Compartment, Heated Tailgate Window with Wiper, Wind Deflector on Tailgate, Cargo Compartment Courtesy Light, Folding Second Seat, Courtesy and Convenience Lights on each front door, Roof Rack, Custom Locking Buick Wire Wheels, Tailgate Window operates separately from or together with Tailgate, Front Seat Reading Lamps and Front Disc Brakes.

Only problem "some mechanical and body work needed"

Thought all the options made it interesting enough to post... $750 OBO

E-mailed the owner he said this:
Thank you for your response. Attached please find the photo you requested. As soon as I received delivery of the car, I had a Kelly green stripe (my favorite color) painted on both front doors by a fantastic detail painter at Knauz Mercedes Benz, then in Lake Forest. The stripe is a true Kelly green though not obvious from the photo.

I believe that almost every option was ordered and I still have the original window sticker evidencing that.



Thank you for posting my ad on your site. I have offered the car at $750 OBO AS IS. You have an interesting fan club, I’m a Buickaholic so I fully understand.


Here's the picture he sent me

So aside from the wheels, this thing is basically a GS or T-Type wagon. Do want.

Just what I was thinking! I would not mind taking a gander at that roof assembly either, Ive never seen the power one in an A-body.

I saw one in a Ciera International at the JY a couple years ago. There was no headliner, IIRC. I may have a pic of it.

Can somebody explain to me why he would have the green painted on the door like he had done? Looks to be quite the amazing find! I wasn't much of a fan of A-body wagons, but this is pretty awesome!

That was one of the things that attracted my attention to the W45 (International coupe) I found in the wreckers a number of years ago. This is the car in my signature that now lives with me. :thumbsup:
