RealRides of WNY - 1955 Buick Special

This 1955 Buick Special four-door Riviera was officially Model 43 in the Flint automaker’s lineup. As the brochure told us, it had "…the eye-filling beauty of Buick’s low-profiled Convertible (not even a door post to block your view) with the comfort and convenience of 4-door sedan construction." Buick introduced the four-door hardtop (they labeled all of their hardtops Rivieras) mid-way through the 1955 model year, while most other nameplates would debut their own pillarless four-door models the following year. Saw this Special, wearing an old Denver Buick dealer badge on the trunklid, last week in Tonawanda.
