Estate Wagon
Chassis #: 14759187
Prior to World War II there was little interest in Station Wagons. They were common at hotels to carry guests to and from the train station. At that time they were known as 'Depot Hacks' where 'Depot' meant station as in the train station, and 'Hack' represented 'wagon.' After World War II, Station Wagon gained rapidly in popularity and by the close of the 1950's, nearly 17% of all American vehicles produced were Station Wagons. Wood bodied vehicles also gained in popularity at the close of World War II. Their white ash and mahogany bodies were elegant and unique and a fine addition to the metal bodies.

Buick capitalized on this combination by offering stylish vehicles powered by large engines and offered at an economical price. In 1947 the Super Series 50 four-door sedan with seating for six would set the buyer back $1930. The most expensive of the Super 50 Series was the four-door estate wagon with seating for six. This cost $2,590.

The 1947 Buick Super Series 50 Station Wagon model 59 with a dark emerald green paint scheme and light wood hue was offered for sale at the 2006 Worldwide Group Auction held on Hilton Head Island. It was expected to sell between $100,000-$125,000. During the 1990's the vehicle was fully restored and has seen very little road time since then. The interior roof is finished in custom fitted wood. The upholstery is a white soft tan leather.
