  1. Thank you, Matt! But before this company invests money in building tri-tone 1956 Buick diecast model cars, I'm wondering whether anyone here has a '56 Buick Color and Trim book to confirm that anything was possible in terms of the combination of the three colors .
  2. Thank you, Lamar. I had seen this tool, but was uncertain whether Buick had "recommended" or "acceptable" combinations. Would Buick really allow you to choose any combination of available colors in '56?
  3. I have been approached by a model car company regarding upcoming models to be issued of the 1956 Buicks. I was asked whether tri-tone combinations were offered in '56. I believe that they were. Is there any information regarding which combinations of three colors Buick recommended for tri-tone cars in 1956? I welcome any input! Thanks in advance.

    Garnet Red 57 Roadmaster 75

    Absolutely one of my favorite Buicks of the 1950's -- and my favorite color combination for the 1957 models. I love this car, Adam! I'm having a hard time seeing how I can get to Oklahoma City this year, but the prospect of seeing this beautiful car makes me want to attend even more. Congratulations, my friend. This car is a dream machine. I'll tune in regularly here to watch for updates.

    I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    We have seen relatively recent images of this vehicle, with the understanding that it was formerly a tow vehicle. But I have never before seen it with the dealership signage. Great image!

    Lamar, it may simply be coincidence, but the 1947 Buick Dealer Planning Guide included an image of "Shore Buick". This is clearly a drawing, and I don't know whether this particular concept was ever built or whether it had any connection to the Shore Buick that your cool sign came from, but thought I'd pass this along:

    FOR SALE: Another 1957 Roadmaster 75 !!

    Here is another '57 Roadmaster 75 that has been teasing me during the recent past. Not perfect, but it looks like there's lots of potential here for the $5,000 asking price. Located close to Tacoma, Washington: https://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/ctd/d/1957-buick/6691002437.html

    Very interesting that this car has only a single sidemount. I thought that the sidemount option was always a dual sidemount option on the '38 Specials. EDIT: Just noticed that the sidemount fender is present in the top photo; only the sidemount spare is missing. So, it was originally a dual sidemount car.
