This 1954 Buick Special Deluxe is the kind of sedan you rarely see
at car shows. So it's exactly how you want a classic of this
caliber with survivor-style looks and a proper nailhead V8 under
The sky blue paint isn't original to the car, but we'll keep that
secret for you. After all, it has that classic look, and it's an
ideal '50s hue. Plus, it has a white roof that really brings out
the nostalgia. The design of a premium Buick like this has a lot of
great details, so it's great to have all the right pieces in place.
The grille has the electric shaver look of a hot rod. Not only do
you have a wraparound windshield, but the rear glass is curved,
too. The full-length side trim dips in the rear doors to mimic the
dip in the profile just above it. You can see the beginning of the
tailfin era in the rear, and it also has a double set of
rocket-inspired taillights. The bumpers look great with just the
right amount of patina to make people really see this as a
survivor-style machine. You even have smooth Buick wheel covers
with whitewalls to have an all-around impressive vintage
The interior has two spacious rows of two-tone blue upholstery.
It's both attractive while also really driving home the survivor
look. It's far from perfect, but that's the exact impression you
give with a survivor-style machine (and the value price means money
left in the budget if you're looking for a restoration.) The real
way to impress is with how complete everything is, right down to
the Sonomatic AM radio that's still there for display. Classic car
fans will particularly like sitting in the driver's seat. The grip
of the original Buick Super wheel with stylized center cap has a
cool style and the worn-in feel of the generations that came before
One of the reasons why the '54 Buick is so important is because
this was the dawn of the new nailhead V8 era. This 264 cubic-inch
unit is from the first year it was offered, and this displacement
was only around for a short time. So with something this
interesting, it's great to have it in such an original-style
condition, right down to the correct carb and generator. And as a
true cruising Buick, you also have easy driving features like the
Dynaflow automatic transmission.
Complete with service manuals, this is the affordable classic with
a ton of distinction. So don't miss this true classic V8 machine.
