Buick V8 Doorstop: 1977 Wedge Custom

When I first glanced at the inside of this next car I thought it had only one seat. Which makes sense because nobody is gonna get into this car with you. Nobody. Not even your crazy semi-homeless friend with a deathwish and all those home made political signs on his car. However, what I didn’t see was that there was another seat on the opposite side of the engine cover…oh…this thing has a mid mounted Buick 215 V8 that is connected to a transaxle and to some tires out back. Is this some kinda Fiero prototype? Anyway, price is good, it runs and drives…what could go wrong? Find this 1977 Wedge Custom offered for $2500 in Sierra Vista, AZ via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

This is the Wedge. It’s a custom home built car, made on parts of a 1963 Pontiac LeMans chassis. It has a short wheelbase, mid engine, rear transaxle. It was built in the 1970s in Detroit, by a GM employee. The engine is a 1963 Buick all aluminum 215 V8. The structure is all steel, with aluminum skin panels, and a removable top. The car is 140 inches long, 76 inches wide, and 54 inches tall.

I have had the car two months. I replaced the radiator and fan, and fixed the carburetor. It runs and drives OK, although the engine and transmission leak oil. I just took it on a 5000 mile road trip, and made it home. Needs new rear tires, as well as several leaks fixed.

This is a very unique car, and attracts a lot of attention. It would be great for promoting a business, or as a conversation starter. It would even be a good commuter car, if you’re handy at keeping an old car running. It gets about 17 mpg, and will do 75 mph on the highway.

Car is located in Sierra Vista, AZ, which is about 80 miles southeast of Tucson. Price is $2500. Sold AS-IS. Please call if you want to buy it, I won’t reply to text messages (too much spam).
