While Soviet union was doing propaganda with communism, America was doing it with capitalism.. advertising the summum of stupidity.

Now capitalism is 100% dependent on communism, and the only thing that saved the Buick brand in 2008 was its popularity in communist China. Ironic.

And to think I get annoyed at how integrated ads have become with our television today. These shows were married to their sponsor to make what almost seems to be a seamless transition between ad and show. The ads were literally part of the show in reality. What a nice car that is, though.

The proportions of that car are absolutely beautiful. It's interesting that Buick offered its own transmission rather than the Turbo hydramatic. And if course, its own engine.

I love the way during the 50's you could actually option these babies. Allowing you the owner the ability to choose whatever you wanted to put on your automobile. End result a car that was an extension you the buyer.

Chrysler Corps then new Three speed automatic Torqueflite transmission mades its debut in the 1956 model year. That transmission seriously outclassed Buick's Dynaflow and more or less forced GM to develop the Turbo-Hydramatic 400.

@Bruce Wiemer Each reply you post further concedes that this transmission had a host of problems. GM's development program targeted 1964 as the first model year for the TH400, which had been under development for several years prior. (Indeed, my own Machine Design Professor worked on the TH400 program for GM in the early 1960s! For the record, I'm a well seasoned mechanical design engineer.) Your suggestion that Buick would have otherwise remained with the Dynaflow rathe than the TH400 (and TH350 for lighter duty applications around the same period) is nothing short of laughable. Dynaflow issues, including its poor overall drivability: www.hotrod.com/articles/modernizing-1954-buick-updated-transmission-rearend/

@Pete sheaas i said, not particularly efficient or performance oriented. Just reliable enough for a 15 year run. Only after dynaflow plant burnt down in 63 were the turbo 400's put into buicks. Yes, a big inprovement. Not sure why you such a hater on dynaflows, especially when you admit to never driving one. All mine have survived for 60 plus years. A snap to rebuild and parts readily available. Hope you had a nice turkey day ☺

These cars didn't have "a four speed on the floor." Indeed, by this time Roadmasters weren't available with any type of manual transmission. The (rather terrible) Dynaflow was standard fair, and it did a fair job of ruining what was otherwise a very nice car by md to late 1950s standards. It wasn't until the 1964 that the all new Turbo Hydramatic 400 first appeared in Buicks. I'm particularly aware of this because my dad purchased a then new and special order 1964 Buick Wildcat that was so equipped.

As great looking as that Buick was, it ( and most American cars) were good for 100,000 miles or so, and that remained the case well into the early 2000”s. Whereas those Toyota’s are good for 200,000 plus. Japanese cars were the first to have six figure odometers because they were the first to need them.The management at the American auto manufacturers knew that they had a dedicated customer base that cared more about brand/country loyalty than about quality so they built cheap to increase their profits and those of their stockholders. In a publicly traded company the quarterly profits help the CEO’s keep their jobs, not the question of whether the customer is going to buy the same brand car next time. The Japanese spent much of their profits on research and development, constantly improving their cars and that long term view has paid off. Also, many of the “Japanese “ cars that you see are built in the USA, proving that it’s the engineering and parts, not who assembles it that makes the difference.

Seriously a rolling mechanical piece of art. This Buick is from a time when cars were built to last and aesthetics were considered. Now, most cars you can't tell from each other and just have problems left and right. That profile shot of the car near the end is just stunning.

My dad bought a new 1956 Buick Roadmaster at Orange Buick in Orlando Florida. It was a nice car. They traded it on a new 1960 Roadmaster. Now Buick is a Chinese car. Good luck to them. I would not buy one. I always hated GM it is (or was) owned by Dupont.
DezineDude Hace 7 meses
Well as an ex-DuPonter it is surely no longer partially owned by DuPont. All this divestiture from GM and UniRoyal was forced on the synthetic materials supplier via anti-trust legislation while the first "non-family" Shapiro was president of the company!

My vote is for a 1970 Buick Electra 225 2 Dr.. dark blue ...
BeefheartLynch Hace 7 meses
Oh man, I owned that very car for a time back around '87 or '88. I needed a good used car as mine had broken down beyond repair. I was in my mid 20's and saw this Electra at a used car dealership. It had dings, some rust, faded paint spots, but I test drove it and it seemed fine so I bought it. If I remember right, I paid $ 800 for it. It was white on white leather and I absolutely LOVED that car. I drove the hell outta that thing. Concerts, road trips, you name it. Not only being large enough to house a family of 12, it was remarkably fast. That car lasted me for nearly 10 years and even though I ended having to sell it, it remains one of my favorite cars I've ever owned. Thanks for bringing up that memory.
