From the Archives: 1957 Buick Century station wagon

These are photos of one very special station wagon and another Cars and Parts cover car, a 1957 Buick Century Caballero Estate. What makes this station wagon so unusual is it is a four-door hardtop station wagon. Station wagons that featured pillarless styling were very unusual and rare. They were offered by Buick for just two model years, 1957 and 1958 and represented less than 3% of total sales. Like all buick station wagons, from the A-pillar to the rear bumper, the bodies were supplied by Ionia Manufacturing.
