Great article, thank you. You hear little about the 69 & 70 Wildcats. I was lucky enough to picked up a 69 Wildcat convertible off Kijiji about 5 yrs from a Buick collector who had posted the add a few minutes before that evening. Told the guy I'd drive the 4 hrs in the morning to buy the car just based on the pics and having a safety standard certified. Next day to hand the guy 10K Cdn and had my self a rare 1 of 2374 1969 Buick Wildcat convertibles with a strong running 360hp / 475 lb ft 430 big block that sounds amazing. It was a solid purchase and once appraised I learned it was worth 20K+. I realize the BF bfg tires were not available until into the 1970's but the T/As look great compared to the standard white walls. The original steering wheel is in the trunk and currently the Wildcat has one from a Skylark GS. Next is to change the wheel caps back to the original Wildcat center caps.
