27 paint color combinations were available for 1951 Buicks. Blue, Green and Grey were the most poplular 1951 Buick Colors. Besides the solid paint, new car buyers had the option to paint the roof in a different color. This color combination was called two-tone paint. For an even more individual look, the wheel color could be changed, too.
The body tag of your car will tell you the original 1951 Buick Color Combination in which your 51 Buick was painted from the factory. You can compare this number with the ones on this page. If you find a “-1” behind the number, your 51 Buick had the optional wheel color.
