An extremely well-kept 1987 Buick Skyhawk station wagon has attracted a surprising number of bids on Bring-A-Trailer, with the gavel soon set to fall on the sale.
According to the auction listing, this sensible compact station wagon was purchased by the original owner from Zimbrick Buick of Madison, Wisconsin for just over $12,000. The original buyer brought the car back to the dealership for a trade-in earlier this year, with the dealer happily accepting it. This person put just 22,000 gentle miles on their grey Buick Skyhawk over the course of the 34 years they owned it and appears to have babied the car, seeing as it is free of major damage, rust or paint blemishes and has a mechanically sound 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and three-speed automatic transmission.
Some comfort-related amenities that came on this compact wagon include power steering, air conditioning, a Delco cassette player, a power driver’s side mirror and door locks, cruise control and a rear window defogger. The dealership did not have to perform any major repairs prior to listing the vehicle for sale, but they did replace the headliner and battery, flush the brake fluid and change the oil. It retains the factory 13-inch steel wheels that it was delivered with, which come wrapped in whitewall Firestone rubber, and features power-assisted front disc brakes. The grey cloth interior upholstery is also free of major tears or other damage.
The winning bidder of this CarFax-backed Buick Skyhawk wagon will receive the original build sheet and manufacturer’s literature that came with the car. Bidding sits at a surprisingly high $8,600 as of this writing. Check out the listing at this link to see more of this collector’s grade 1980s family wagon.
Update: the Skyhawk ended up being sold for $18,500.
