364 CUBIC INCH
Lot #1085 - The Century Caballero Estate Wagon, GM's finest and most expensive station wagon, wore Buick's new styling very well. Especially noteworthy is the full 4 door hardtop pillarless construction. Buick station wagon bodies were constructed by the Ionia Body Company, an independent supplier to GM located in Flint. The Caballero utilized a 300hp version of the Buick V8 enlarged to 364cid for 1957 and a Dynaflow automatic transmission. There were just over 10,000 units produced in 1957. This particular car was the subject of a custom build with many upgraded features. Front suspension is all tubular A-arms with coilover springs built by TCI. There are front disk brakes and read drums that are power assisted. The motor is a 364cid crate engine coupled to a 700R overdrive transmission, with a Ford 9" rear end. A Vintage Air unit cools the entire interior of this grand estate wagon.
