1954 Buick Colors

1954 Buick Colors

Buick made some big changes in 1954. All estate wagons were steel. For the first time, all models had a V8 engine. And the way the paint colors were assigned was changed. In 1953, the paint colors were just numbered and a number was solid or a paint color combination. Each color could have been part of several paint combinations. That changed for 1954. Each color had a specific letter, which was used to order/select the roof color. The same color could have an assign number, which was used to specify the body color. Only the optional wheel color still had the “-1” indication on the body tag.

Buyers of a new Buick could choose between 19 different colors as body colors. Not all of them were available as roof colors. Some colors were initially reserved for convertibles and the Skylark models. But body tags off later produced cars show, this limitation was revoked at some point. Speaking of changes during the year: With the Buick Spring Fashion Show in April, 1954, Buick introduced these colors: Tunis Blue, Malibu Blue, Lido Green & Gulf Turquoise

The following overview of 1954 Buick Colors reflect the start of production plus paint colors which have been added later in 1954.
