|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This 1991 Winston Cup car was driven by Wilson in what would become Buick's final season in NASCAR competition. The Buick Regal was used for a decade in stock car competition. When it first entered the scene, its slick, aerodynamic shape made it a formidable contender and aided it in winning the 1981 Winston Cup in the capable hands of Darrell Waltrip.
In 1991 at Atlanta this car had its best finish with a twelfth place. It is currently finished in its proper 1991 Snickers livery and equipped with racing tires, suspension, ignition and other racing-specific safety items. After its racing career came to an end, it was used on the show circuit including a long period on display with the GM Heritage Center.
In 2009, this stock car was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. It was expected to sell for $20,000 - $40,000. The lot was sold for a high bid of $14,300, with proceeds benefiting the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Foundation.
