1955 Buick Roadmaster Convertible
Having adopted General Motors' new “C” bodies in 1954, Buick's top-line Roadmaster received a face- and tail-lift for 1955, with a fresh screen-mesh grille, tall, bold taillights and gold-colored ornaments. Industry-wide, 1955 was a year of great color, and Buick was an eager participant, using the body-side “Riviera spear,” first seen in 1949, as a separation for two-tone schemes.
The year 1955 was magic for most American automakers, and Buick was no exception. Industry sales reached nearly eight million cars, a record. Buick's total, too, was a record, 781,296 cars, nearly 60 percent better than 1954, and for the second year in a row, keeping Plymouth out of third place.
What a gorgeous looking automobile…the lines, the chrome, the everything There's just nothing you can't like in this car. This Dover White convertible with blood red leather interior will just take your breath away. Then once you catch your breath, the power of the 322ci nail head engine and Dyno Flo transmission will do it all over again. Let's talk about the options of this car…to start with, it has power steering and brakes under the hood, then moving into the passenger compartment we find power windows, door locks, seat, and power top. This is a very solid automobile top to bottom, front to back, no disappointments here. Put the top down and head for the open road.
