220 HP, 322 cid, Overhead Valve V-8 Engine, Dynaflow Automatic Transmission VIN: 4C2055724 When better cars were built, it was Buick that often built them back in the 1950's. For those who thought that a Cadillac was maybe a bit too pretentious, the Buick was a wonderful substitute. For the entry-level Buick buyer, the Special series was a perfect and one of the most popular models was the "46R" 2-door hardtop presented here. Finished in its original color scheme of black and white, this is basically an original car with a California heritage. The interior is trimmed with red vinyl and luxurious black fabric, and features a new for 1956, instrument cluster and accessories on the dashboard including the Sonomatic push-button radio, electric clock, and heater defroster. While the Special may have been the most economical Buick in the line-up this wasn't a stripped-down loss-leader for it has power steering, brakes, windows, seats and even the radio antenna. One up-grade is the recent addition of a modern air-conditioning unit using the R134A refrigerant helping keep this car extra cool. It is still wearing its California black plates, which were issued to this car in 1963, and from our inspection, we found no issues with any rust-out or any signs of accident repair. Big, bold and beautiful, this 1956 Buick is a very unique opportunity to own a very desirable and attractive hardtop from the mid-1950's.
