120 HP, 263 cid, Overhead Valve In Line 8 Cylinder Engine, 3 Speed Transmission VIN 16609360; Engine No. 68588614 Back in the early 1950's, a car's grille spoke volumes about what type of machine it was, and what type of person owned it. When you saw a Buick from this era, you knew they were powerful and they deserved your respect, in many ways, even more so than someone in a Cadillac. While the Special series was Buick's entry-level line, it was still an impressive vehicle. From its big "valve in head" eight to the new Dynaflow transmissions, it built a reputation of performance with, nearly 120,000 customers moving over to this line of automobiles. Touted as "racy and road steady" they were promoted as being "a lively performer that's deluxe finished throughout". This sharp example is presented in its original color scheme of gloss black over yellow and it is well appointed with original radio, heater defroster, backup lights, full wheel covers and even a tissue dispenser. It looks to be basically original with no body or interior modifications and the engine compartment also appears to be complete with its unique air cleaner. These big Buicks have a lot of appeal in today's world of "jelly bean" cars, with its unique side sweep stainless trim and massive front bumper grille combination, this is not the type of car you take lightly or have a tendency to forget.
