One executive from General Motors (Buick was part of General Motors) upon his return from a trip to the UK, came back to inform his bosses that the British referred to anything 100 as a ‘century’. It was during this same time that Buick was developing a car that was capable of touching speeds of 100 miles/hr and so the name stuck as the Buick Century.
Buick used this name for a specific line of top performance cars. The same was sold in Japan as the Buick Regal. This car was the Estate version (also known as a station wagon).
A highly detailed and a rare model made in resin.
