Sold for $93,500 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall.
The Buick Century Caballero Estate Wagon was positioned by Buick near the upper end of the market. It featured the unique Buick styling cues, powered by the Century's powerful V8 engines, and given a long list of amenities and luxury items. They were quick and refined machines. However, the Caballero was produced for only a short time, lasting from 1957 through 1958. The car had high construction costs which resulted in Buick canceling the Caballero along with the Century name the following year. The Century nameplate would be later revived and adorned on Buick vehicles while the Caballero name has laid dormant.

This 1957 Buick Century Caballero Wagon was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Meadow Brook. The car was estimated to fetch between $80,000 - $100,000. It is powered by a 364 cubic-inch V8 engine that is capable of producing an estimated 300 horsepower. The car has a three-speed gearbox and four-wheel drum brakes. It is one of the few surviving examples of the Caballero and is one of the finest of its kind. The car has been treated to both a cosmetic and mechanical restoration. It is finished in red and white paint with four-wire wheels and period-correct whitewall tires. The upholstery is finished in red and white. The car is equipped with power windows and seats, which were standard at the time.

The estimated value proved to be very accurate and the bidding agreed with those figures. The car found a new owner with a selling price of $93,500.
