Buick had a special program to tell dealerships and other mechanics about production improvements, repair campaigns and other news: The Buick Product Service Bulletins (BPS) This abridged edition is a collection of the most important ones from the 1956 Buick selling period, BPS 2.396 NOV. 4, 1955 to BPS 2.414 OCT. 19, 1956.
The 1956 Buick Product School Manual furnishes service information on those chassis items in 1956 models which are different from 1955 models. Many of the differences between 1955 and 1956 models are obvious upon inspection and do not require service information. Read this book for comparisons between 55 and 56 Buick parts & systems plus new car features!
The headquarter as well as the biggest assembly plant of Buick in 1956 were located in Flint, Michigan. New car buyers could pick up their new car right from the factory. It was also possible to take a look at the production process. Visitors to Buick's final assembly line saw a new car built rapidly. Less than two hours after a bore frame was placed on a power conveyor it supports a beautiful finished car, exact and quiet in operation. Thats why Buick called it Buicks Busy Acres. This rare 1956 Buick Literature piece gives you a virtual tour of the Buick factory and the 56 Buick assembly line.
