Description for Buick Century 1956

From 1954 through 1958 Buick reintroduced the Century using the same formula as the earlier versions, mating the smaller, lighter body to its largest and most powerful V8 which was the 322 Nailhead. The idea was making a performance vehicle for the GM lineup. It was a hit with the California Highway Patrol which placed a large fleet order for two-door sedans, a body style that was unavailable to the public in 1955. The body style which was a hit... was now available in 1956 and by this time was producing over 250 HP which was considered to be quite powerful for the time. Power brakes were optional and tubeless tires were all new, both of which were helpful for performance. This particular stunning example is finished in what we can tell is Foam over Glacier Green with a white painted top. This appears to be a very nice sorted Buick with excellent chrome and trim and near spotless interior, a very tidy engine compartment. This is a car you could feel comfortable going to shows or touring as the car starts absolutely perfect with no smoking or leaking mated to a smooth shifting automatic with nice brakes and tires. All the glass is perfect and operates flawlessly as do the lights. This Buick in my opinion is a stunning example that would cost double to duplicate if doing one your self. If you are looking for a post-war American classic with power and elegance, do not let this one pass you by.
