Hello Everyone and thanks for allowing me to be a part of this forum. I've got a question that will hopefully be simple to answer so here goes. My mom has a 1965 Buick Wildcat and I'm not sure what type, I've looked on Nada to find that there is a Wildcat, Wildcat Deluxe and a Wildcat Custom. I'm not exactly sure how to tell the difference so if anyone has any info I would be GREATLY appreciative.

Thanks again for everyones help,

Robert

Unless the dash emblem or trim has some hints, it might be difficult to determine. The old cowl mounted stamped trim code plates don't usually offer a lot of assistance. The VIN probably won't help much, either, since GM didn't have encoding of sub-models in the VIN.

Still, it might help to find the cowl plate and see what you can find:

I had a 1966 wildcat custom grand sport.
On the cowl it said 465 torque?
If yours is a custom it will have a 401 engine and either 1 or 2 4bbl carbs.
They also came with 4 speed believe it or not.
Also if it is custom it should either have the holes or the word custom after wildcat on the rear side panel.

Cheers
