1959 Buick Colors

1959 Buick Colors

The car industry had no good times at the end of the 1950s. So did Buick. Sales decreased dramatically. The amount of available colors dropped from 25 in 1958 to only 13 in 1957 – and not all of them could be ordered at the start of the new model year.

The claim for all 1959 Buick Colors were “Magic Mirror Finish”. These advantages were promoted:

  • Magic-Mirror retains its luster three times longer than conventional finishes.
  • Magic-Mirror offers great resistance to chipping and cold-cracking.
  • Magic-Mirror washes free of dirt more easily and offers greater resistance to staining by road tars and lubricants.

If you compare the figures on this page with the body tag from your 1959 Buick, you can find out how your car came from the factory. Two-tone combinations can be identified by the paint code letters. The first letter indicates the lower color and the second letter is the upper color. But the two-tone paint option was very limited: Arctic White was the only roof color.
