1955 Buick Colors

1955 Buick Colors

The new model line for 1955 not only had sold or two-tone paint – but also three-tone paint. 20 base colors were available. Five of them were introduced in Spring 1955. They are: Y (Mist Green), W (Spruce Green), P (Caded Blue), X (Nile Green) and F (Colinial Blue). To simplify the color indication, Buick decided to discontinue the color indication from 1954. From now on, a letter for each paint specifies the color for the paintable area.

The original 1955 Buick Colors Combination of your 55 Buick can be found on the body tag in the engine compartment. The first alphabet letter designates the upper color, the 2nd alphabet letter denotes the center color, and the 3rd alphabet letter denotes the color below molding, i.e., Combination AAA would be all Black, and ADB would be Upper-Black, Center-Windsor Gray Metallic, and below moulding- Dover White. -1 = Optional Cherokee Red Wheels — AAA-1 would be a solid black car with optional Cherokee Red Wheels

The 3-tone Color Combinations will be available ONLY in the following four color combinations:

ADB
EKH
BML
ASC
YXW
