1951 Buick Line-up!

An entirely new, lighter, smaller Special Series broadens Buick's price range HERE THEY COME!

A complete line of Specials-most popular entrant in Buick's 1951 parade!

This year, Buick has really assigned the Special a place of special distinction, offering more models here than in any other series.

1950 Buick Special

For the first time in the postwar era, every body style is available on this lower priced Buick line. Hre are eight truly luxurious automobiles, without luxury price tags.

All superior in performance to any previous Specials, too-thanks to the new F-263 engine which brings its high compression ratios and high horsepowers to the Special line. Introduced last year on the Buick Super Series, the F-263 now steps up power and performance and improves gasoline mileage in all 1951 Specials.
