The early post war Buicks soon changed their styling from the early-40s models. However, the 1950s were very successful years even if the products were not always at the leading edge of technology, performance or styling.
The Dynaflow automatic transmission was on some 85% of all new Buicks by 1951 but the overhead-valve V8 was not introduced until 1953. After the chrome-and-fins era in 1958 the early 1960s produced some well proportioned cars.
In this compilation of road tests, driving impressions, specification and performance data, and model introductions the cars covered are: Dynaflow Buicks, 50-series Super, Roadmaster. 41, Super Riviera V8, Century, Century Special, Roadmaster Special, Special Estate Wagon, Century Hardtop, Limited, Invicta, Electra, Electra 225, Le Sabre, Special, Skylark, Wildcat. Over 250 illustrations.
