For the 1962 model year Buick introduced the Wildcat sport coupe to compete with Pontiac’s Grand Prix, and to some extent, the Ford Thunderbird. A year later, the Wildcat line expanded, adding a convertible and a four-door hardtop, while the Grand Prix and T-Bird remained exclusively as two-door hardtops for a few more years. This 1963 Buick Wildcat four-door been resting comfortably for a while now alongside a Niagara Falls used-car lot. When new it listed for $3,871 and there were 17,519 of them built, making it that year’s most popular Wildcat. The LeSabre four-door sedan was the best-selling full-sized Buick for 1963, with a total of 64,995 produced.
