For Sale: 1955 Buick Special in Rogers, Minnesota

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Buick Special Convertible is a beautifully restored, stock example of a luxury 50s cruiser. 1955 was a monumental year for Buick, with the General Motors Division sitting in third place with its sales of nearly three-quarters of a million cars. The '55 Buicks received a major facelift from the previous year's models. The front end was updated to a new oval shaped cut out with textured grille panel and solid chrome horizontal emblem bar across the middle. The front quarter also were redesigned giving the cars a more futuristic look and the iconic venti-ports shifted from an oval shape to circles. At the tail, the rear quarters also got a new, almost wing-like, appearance along with a new "tower" taillight housing. This particular Buick Special comes to us from a longtime east coast collector who owned the car for the past 30+ years. Under the hood on this '55 Buick Convertible is a 264 Cubic Inch "Nailhead" V8 paired with a single 2 barrel carburetor that pushed our 188 horsepower in its day. The 264 Nailhead V8 is hooked up to a Dynaflow Automatic Transmission that just about anybody can drive. Being that Buicks were considered luxury cars back in 1955, they typically (like this one) came loaded with options. With power steering, getting in and out of tight parking spaces at the local drive-in or car show is a breeze. Power brakes makes it much easier to bring this classic Buick Special to complete stop. In the off chance that you get caught in the rain or you just need a little extra shade on a sunny summer day, putting the beige vinyl power convertible top up is as easy as flipping a switch and putting it back down is just as easy. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this '55 Special is in spectacular, ready for the local car show, condition. Riding on wide whitewall radial tires with full wheelcovers, this 1955 Convertible has a great look and even better ride. The exterior on this Buick Special has been beautifully refinished in its correct color scheme, Gulf Turquoise. The interior on this '55 Buick is superb! The front and rear bench seats have been reupholstered in beautiful red leather. The matching door panels, steering wheel, and dash are in wonderful shape as well. The dash is equipped with a 120 MPH speedometer, amp gauge, oil pressure gauge, and fuel gauge, as well as a push-button AM radio and clock. Whether you're looking to add to your existing GM collection or you're buying your very first classic car, this 1955 Buick Special Convertible would make an excellent choice. Give us a call today!
