Anyone ever hear of a Cadillac station wagon?

I was fortunate enough to be shown an older gentleman's collection, all of which are available to me to buy. There were several 1937-1940's cars that are nice. The one that baffled me was a 1971 Cadillac station wagon. This is NOT a hearse. I cannot find info or values of this car, and wondered if anyone here knew of them.

Pictures?? I'd be willing to bet one of the "coachmakers" that created the hearse's, flower cars and ambulance is responsible. Would make an attention getting cruiser.

I have seen photos of Caddy wagons of this era. Not common, and custom ordered. They have a regular top, not the Hennesey coach built hearse/ambulance top. Very rare, indeed.

I don't have pics yet but will get some. He said it was a factory production car and less than fifteen were made. I was skeptical, but it sure looks factory.

I seem to remember reading about these a few years ago. Factory produced, but pretty much a special order and only available to special people, like GM brass or the wives thereof. Definitely not a dealer showroom filler!!

Amazing, thanks for sharing G8tr. Loved the Eldorado based examples and imagine what one of those full boat Sedan Deville barges weighs.

I had seen this site but wasn't sure if it was facts. Looks like it is so. Now...what is thing worth in nice original low miles condition. I think I should try to get it bought. There might be a money making opportunity, but who would want it? Can't be nostalgic, because so few ever owned one. Sure isn't a hot rod or good looking either. Just is rare. Maybe I just talked myself out of it.

Thats one of those that falls into "what someone is willing to pay for it". Make a great car museum piece. GM has a place here where they have a collection of rare and low production cars (was on Gas Monkey garage when he bought all the copo camaros) by invite only but that would be right up their alley.
