I acquired this Buick in 2015 and have documentation of the first owner. Matilda J. Gage. an Aberdeen South Dakota ‘Wizard-of-OZ' historical figure that owned the car from 1955 to 1986.

HISTORY:

This Buick was assembled at the Kansas City. KS Plant and originally purchased new by Miss Matilda J. Gage [Frank Baum's niece] at Jacobson Buick in Aberdeen South Dakota.

Miss Gage promoted the children's books about the land of OZ authored by her uncle Frank Baum.   The character of Dorothy depicted in Baum's books was based on Miss Gage and her younger sister. [the real] Dorothy.   Miss Gage's ‘Wizard-of OZ' Buick was sold in 1986 after her death.
