Estate Woody Wagon
Designer: Hercules
Buick, founded in 1903, had come a long way from its original 2-cylinder models by the time this beautiful Estate Wagon was built. In 1941, Buick was a prestigious car prized world-wide for its performance, style and durability.

Buicks were often featured in movies of the era. Warner Bros. Studios owned several that were used both for crew transportation and in their films. One of these, a 1941 Series 40 Special Estate Wagon is the very car you see here. This Warner Bros. Buick was ordered fully optioned, with fender skirts, 'Sonomatic' radio and 'Compound Carburetion' (dual carburetors).

This Buick appeared in many movies made in the 1940s and can be spotted in later films as well. One of its last appearances was in the 1968 movie, 'Cool Hand Luke' - yes, this is the wagon that Luke/Paul Newman 'dies' in at the end of the film. The Estate Wagon was sold at a Warner Bros. property auction in 1969, by which time it had logged only 28,000 miles. It was subsequently 'sympathetically restored' and has been proudly held by the present, fourth, owner since 1995.

The wooden bodies for the 1941 Buick Estate Wagons were produced by Hercules Mfg. Co., of Evansville, Indiana. Only 838 examples of the lovely Estate Wagon were built in 1941 and very few survive today.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
