Description:

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 15th – 19th, 2014 at Russo and Steele''s 14th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Please contact us for more information.Buick traditionally occupied an enviable position within the GM Division hierarchy by selling prestigious, well equipped, and profitable mid-to-upper level cars. By 1954, record calendar-year production and strong model-year production drove Buick to third place in the American sales rankings right behind high-volume Chevrolet and Ford, and the newly released Century line-up contributed to that remarkable success. Reprising a nameplate first used between 1936 and 1942, the Century was Buick’s performance model line, combining the powerful 322 ‘Nailhead’ V-8 engine of the Roadmaster with the lightweight body and chassis of the Special. A highly respected road car capable of cruising at 100 mph, hence its name, the Century clearly foreshadowed the big engine/lightweight chassis formula of the “musclecar” era. Performance was so strong in fact that during a road test conducted by Motor Trend, the Century out-accelerated even the mighty Chrysler C-300! Passenger comfort was excellent as well. In particular, the top-level Model 66C Convertible Coupe included such standard features as leather upholstery and an outside rear-view mirror, plus a hydraulic power-operated front seat, convertible top and windows. Even more power was on tap for 1955, with the ‘Nailhead’ now developing a stout 236 bhp, further elevating the Century’s performance credentials. This highly striking Century Convertible Coupe from 1955 is one of only 5,588 produced and remains a very fine example of the dynamic Buicks of the 1950s. It clearly continues to benefit from a full restoration to factory specifications completed 15 years ago, as well as five years of display at Illinois’ famous Volo Auto Musuem. A White top and tonneau cover, two-tone Red and White interior and such desirable extras as a “Continental” spare-tire kit and Skylark wire-spoke wheels nicely complement the Bright Red exterior. A multiple show winner with several ''Best of Show'' awards to its credit including Best of Show in an all-Buick show at Puyallup and a Senior Gold Medal in national-level competition in 2007, this excellent example is extremely rare as one of an estimated 40 remaining in existence today. As a period Buick sales catalogue noted, “Drive the Century and you command thrills that set the pulse of even a sports car enthusiast to pounding”. This statement remains true today.
