1957 Buick Options (Optional Equipment)

1957 Buick Options (Optional Equipment)

The car sales business from the 1950s was different in comparison with today. But one big sales method, which is standard today, was first introduced at Buick in 1957. Besides the normal list of 1957 Buick Optional Equipment, there were two basic groups for options. They were packages, which consists of a number of options. Unfortunately they couldn’t stop the decrease of Buick sales.

As for 1956, the 57 Buick model line had a wide choice of optional equipment. From interior luxury to exterior fancy items – buyers could configure their 57 Buick to their personal needs perfectly.

We are still looking for some prices of options. Can you help us? If yes, please let us know!
