And out on the edges there were all kinds of little things going on: the first year for 12-volt electrical systems, a significantly improved “Twin Turbine” Dynaflow transmission, and, perhaps most significantly for this lovely 1953 Roadmaster estate wagon, the final year for wood-bodied wagons in America. Yes, that’s right, Buick was the last company to actually offer a woody wagon that used actual structural timber in its construction and 1953 was the end of the line.

The dramatic contrast between the dark blue paint and the light wood is simply beautiful, and it surely looks better today than it did when it was green. And since they used another factory color, there’s no deduction in judging—nice! Another bonus is that you know the restoration was thorough, because there’s zero evidence of any green paint on the car.

As with the exterior, the interior was changed from green to blue, another factory-correct combination that works quite well with the dark Imperial Blue bodywork. Everything that you can see or touch was restored or replaced during the restoration, and the rear carpets were just replaced this year so they’re as-new. The two-tone dash is stylish and should look familiar to Buick fans, with the speedometer front and center and the auxiliary dials flanking the steering column.
