ELIDA — The Buick Special was produced from1936 to 1958. It was Buick's entry level full-size car.The 1957 Buick Special shared General Motors' B-body with Oldsmobile. The '57 Buick Special extended a little over three inches in length than the 1956 model. It also stood three and a half inches lower than the '56 Buicks. This gave the '57 Buick a sleeker, low slung look. The only identification on the car was on the front grill and trunk badges. The '57 Buick Special featured a three piece split rear window, which critics were eager to criticize. However, this is one of the features that make the 1957 model year unique and desirable. There were approximately 405,000 1957 Buick's produced.
Jenni Chafin, of Elida, brought her 1957 Buick Special to The Lima News' Real Wheels Cruise In. This large car is beautiful and provides a nostalgic glimpse into the fabulous '50's. Notice the chrome front grill and bumper, which almost resembles a wide-mouth grin.
