1/64 Scale Car of the Year: Buick Century Caballero Estate Wagon

Just like our 1/43 Inductee, this ’57 Buick Century Wagon represents the ultimate in American, stylish family transportation. Based on the Chevy 2-door body style, the Century was Buick’s more luxurious interpretation of the more humble Chevy. Named “Caballero” after the term for a Mexican Gentleman, the Century Wagon was suitably plush, with more chrome, wire wheels, and an array of even more stylish colors.


This Model from Neo and sold by American Excellence has a metallic blue over white two-tone paint-job, chrome wheels and a detailed interior. When so many 1/64 diecast model over-the-top sports cars, this faithful recreation of a sophisticated family car stands out.
