    Please Identify-2

    I'm posting the pictures separately so there will be no confusion between the pictures...my confusion, that is...
    I know it's a Buick, and I'm pretty sure it's a Roadmaster, my father's favorite, but what year is it. They were taken in April of 1954. many thanks, B

    This one looks to be a 1953 due to the hub cap with a "V" on it. The "V" signified V8. 1953 was Buick's first year for a V8 and for those hub caps if I'm not mistaken.

    Ditto - but note that the Super also got the V8 in '53 and used the same wheelcovers. Also, there's a kind of random horizontal chrome moulding above the rear wheel that's unique to the Supers.
