can't argue with that one.~


best. v-8. ever.


The original Wildcat 455 was a 430 cubic inch Buick nail-head engine. The 455 was the torque rating. Later, the Invicta model was replaced by the Wildcat which was available as a 4 door hard top, a 2 door hard top, and a convertible. It was available with the 455 cubic inch Buick V-8 (not the nail head).
