1953 Buick – What Marvels 50 Years Have Brought
The history of Buick is the history of the automobile industry. In 1903, Buick began with one of the few cars that had the essential goodness to survive fifty years of this industry’s relentless striving for constant betterment.
Today, for 1953, it introduces a new line of automobiles that are truly the forerunners of another new era in motoring.
The 1953 Buick brings you more power, with an entirely new kind of V-8 engine in the SUPER and ROADMASTER – a power package that has the lowest weight per cubic inch displacement and the highest compression ratio in automotive history.
Buick now makes America’s roomiest six-passenger car as easy to handle as much smaller ones -by ingeniously reducing ROADMASTER’s wheelbase, over-all length and turning radius, without sacrificing an inch of its interior dimensions.
Buick now sets an entirely new standard of value in a new SPECIAL that is thriftier to operate and priced just above the “low-priced three” – yet beats even last year’s ROADMASTER from zero to thirty miles an hour. Buick now introduces a new kind of Dynaflow Drive, called Twin-Turbine Dynaflow -that is faster on the getaway as well as quieter, and that changes all previous concepts of torque converter transmissions.
So you can be sure that, beneath the brilliant new styling of these Golden Anniversary Buicks, a golden opportunity has been made of this occasion to contribute in many vital ways to the advancement of automotive progress.
