The SPECIAL – Buick life, lift and luxury at lowest cost was how Buick saw this low price series for ’55.  The Special (Series 40) saw a new, lowered hood and fender lines, new grille (with textured grille housing) along with new hooded headlamps and tail lights. This 1955 Buick Special 2 Door Hardtop is powered by a 264 cubic inch V8 engine.

Introduced in 1954, the new Panoramic windshield made all the difference to how car looks would progress during the fifties.
