Default 1965 Buick Wildcat Hearse - $5900

1965 Buick Wildcat Hearse/Ambulance combination coach. all original condition. 80k original miles. The coach was built on a Buick Wildcat chassis by National Coach in Knightstown, Indiana. Very few were ever made. It was sold new to a funeral home in Washington state then Idaho. It was retired in the early 90's and collector owned since. This is a barn find. not run in almost ten years and the engine needs work. It is a very solid restoration project because it has never been driven in the midwestern salt. Has a gumball beacon ray and under hood siren. Factory a/c front and back. Stored indoors the past ten years, all glass is perfect. asking $5900.00. interesting trades considered. call

for showing. ********PLEASE NOTE, THE PICTURES AT THE BOTTOM ARE MORE CURRENT PICTURES WHERE THE CAR IS DARK BLUE************** It was repainted before it was placed in storage, the other pictures show it with it's original paint. I included those because they are much more detailed. The car does not run so it is hard to get good pictures, if you would like more detailed current pictures I'll do my best to take them.

Sorry about forgetting the link. This is not my car. I was browsing craigslist during a brief moment of down-time today, and I noticed the add. I thought that there would be folks with an interest on this site, so I posted.

It is a very early 1965 National-Buick built using the tooling Flxible had prepared for their never-produced 1965 models. The last I knew , Tim Fantin owned this rare car. As far as I know, the pictures accompanying this ad were all taken by Tim.

Was my car at one time. I bought it from Bob Hedges shortly after the 1995 meet in Fort Wayne. It was from a firm in Idaho. I sold it to Larry Freels and he had it repainted a darker blue. Currently not owned by me but the owner has it stored under my carport. Good solid ultra rare combination coach for somebody. Hope it finds a good home. Has Flxible markings.

It sure is a nice looking combo, I like the color change too. The problem is that it sat so long, you could spend thousands just getting it up and running, unless you can do it yourself. But, as Tim said, I sure hope it finds a good home.
