1960 Buick Invicta
The Buick Invicta was a full-size automobile produced by Buick from
1959 to 1963. The Invicta was a continuation of the Buick Century
concept that mated the standard size Buick LeSabre body with
Buick's larger 401 cubic inch Nailhead V8 engine, yielding what was
referred to as "the banker's hot rod."
The Invicta name was derived from Latin and signified
'unconquerable, invincible, unbeatable, unvanquished' according to
Buick Motor Division sales training materials.

Stunning is all I can say about the exterior paint in its red and
white paint scheme and its
body style that is classy and attractive. GM's cars were the first
to reflect the influence of Bill Mitchell, Harley Earl's successor
as corporate design chief and Mitchell made sure the line included
Invicta's trio of portholes on the front fenders,
