The Boutell trucks would most likely leaving the Flint assembly plant.  They were a big trucking company in the Flint area serving Buick and the other plants.

 

The second picture would most likely be the Jim Causley dealer in the Detroit area.

 

The last picture with the building in the background looks like the Flint assembly plant.

You known, there always seemed to be something immortal about those '53 Buicks.

Nice, but I don't see a very good color match HERE.

That is a colorized picture.

It started as a black and white and someone added color later, using the colors they liked.

Just some pictures from my favorite junkyard. 55-57, with one 56 - my personal parts car. :P

The spirit of this 56 lives on.

I think I detect why the trunk lids are rotted out!😬 A rather damp climate. If that 51/52 Roadmaster mustache bar is not cracked, it ought to be saved. Also check and see if it is a power steering car if it is a '52. First year for power steering.

That 52 was a standard straight 8 engine with no extra goodies and I think it was a Special. The 53 Roadmaster has power steering, however. Finding a good piece of pot metal chrome out here will be a challenge, lol.

   I have seen this picture somewhere before. Necessity is the mother++++.  Would like to see the bottom and the propulsion system.
