1950 Buick – the Fashion for 50

On this page, you will see why “the thing to do” in 1950 will be to drive a Buick.

Here, you will find more than stunning good looks, more than thrilling performance, more than generous room, and soft riding comfort. Here, you will find a wide choice of body styles, power ranges, and wheelbases that spread-eagle three price classifications – cars that put travel in the Buick manner within the reach of still more people.

In every one of the 1950 Buick models,  you will find that lively, leap-ahead look that instantly says Buick. In every one, you will find thrilling Fireball valve-in-head power, with higher compression ratios and brilliant performance in each instance. In every one of these beauties, you will find room, and the deep comfort of the Buick ride, plus high visibility and feathery handling. In every one, you can have the silken ease of Dynaflow Drive, that completely different and miraculously smooth transmission in which “oil does it all.”

Study these creations and you will find closed cars and open cars, smart sports models and far-ranging family cars – cars trimmed down in over-all length for new ease in parking and garaging, and cars stretched out in interior roominess to give you luxurious bigness. You will find four wheelbases, engines in five horsepower ratings, and three complete series-SPECIAL, SUPER, and ROADMASTER.

You will find a wide selection of equipment and accessories that enables you to tailor your 1950 Buick to suit your taste. You will find cars to suit any budget that reaches beyond the very lowest price class – and every one will be a pattern setter. For Buick’s the fashion, for this year and for years to come – the fashion in styling, the fashion in brilliant power, the fashion in comfort, handling, and prestige. By any yardstick, Buick’s top choice.
