Buick had all along been making saloon cars with no stationwagon version until the early forties (unlike her competitors who were known to make 'woody' estate cars which was the fad). Therefore to establish her position for Estate cars, Buick launched an all-metal body estate version in 1954 with Buick Century (there was also another series of estate cars called the Special series).
This range of vehicle was called Century as the car could easily go up to 100 miles/hr i.e. hit a century.
The Caballero Estate (Caballero is a horseman, in rural America) was one of the most luxurious estate (stationwagon) cars of her times. With a massive 364 cubic inch, OHV 6.0 litre V-8 engine called ‘Nailhead’ (so known because of the unusual vertical alignment of small-sized valves), the Caballero would do 160 km/hr easily making it the fastest estate vehicle under production.
