    Now that car is a statement!

    Wow. I never wanted a car like this until now.

    1967 was definitely the year of majestically styled fastbacks. Many of them full size framed cars. It is interesting that competing Ford and GM hit the extreme fastback button the same year. There must have been a lot of spying going on since it takes several years to bring new designs to market! (BTW, I love fastbacks) Think of… 67 Galaxie, 67 LTD, 67 Mercury fastback, 67 Mustang, 67 Pontiac Bonneville, 67 Impala, 67 Olds, 67 Buick, and others

    Limited interior shots and no under hood shots… OUCH. But one caveat, he has owned it since 1969. That has to be the largest PLUS in the purchase of a sub 10K car. If I were on the left coast I would be headed toward the city on the bay.
    Beautiful, graceful car.

    That's a cool car at a good DT price.

    I do think it's longer than my garage, which is weird because my house was built when this car was only a few years old. Did people not park in the garage back then either? I thought turning your garage into junk storage was a recent phenomenon.

    easy comparison to the big Polara from the other day – substantially more win here – even the taillights are nearly as cool

    I love this color combination. Silver with black/red trim and gallons of chrome really work on this car. The incredibly delicate and smooth line of the rear pillars really works.
    Buick tried the same crease line on the side of the next year's '68 Skylark but the Skylark's much shorter overall length and wheelbase turned the gentle character lines of the '67 Wildcat into an exaggerated S that looked like an after thought.

    I've been trying to find a picture of a custom Wildcat that a guy in San Diego built years ago. He looked at that profile and added a 'bridge' with full controls. It looked like a cabin cruiser on wheels but really sold the idea of it being a land yacht. Sounds bizarre, but turned out to be a real crowd pleaser.

    DT and Jimmy Kerrick – (s)he says in the CL listing (s)he is the second owner since 1969. Still, regardless of long-term owner or flipper, I love it.
