1955 BUICK IDENTIFICATION

Recommended Posts

hi have several pics of a 1955 buick convertible Im thinking of purchasing , problem is , it appears like the windshield has been worked on ,making me think somebody was trying to convert a hrdt into a conv ,   but the  rest of the car appears like a true convertible , but has no ID tags , or cowl tag , 

, the car has the braces at the front door post like a conv 

 

i was told all convertibles had power windows witch this one does not , any help would be appreciated

Please tell us which Buick model.

According to my 1955 Buick sales catalogue,

power windows were standard ONLY on the

convertibles in the Roadmaster, Super, and Century

lines.  They were also standard on the Roadmaster

2-door hardtop;  but they were NOT standard on the

Special convertible.  They were available at extra 

cost on all Buick models except the Special 2-door

sedan.

 

Mr. CBG, if you want people to scrutinize the 

windshield and other details, I think you'll get answers

that are much more knowledgeable if you post your

question in the "Buick--General" category.  Plenty of really

expert Buick fans read those listings, but may not see

your question here.  Just scroll down the list of topics,

and you'll see the Buick section.

 

People will certainly ask for pictures of the windshield

and the car so they can answer you.

If it was a true Roadmaster convertible, it should 

have power windows.  If it was cut down from a

Roadmaster 2-door hardtop, it should have power

windows.

 

Since the car has no serial-number tag, nor cowl tag,

maybe the "Roadmaster" name was just applied.

This car does not sound at all legitimate, and I would

stay far away from it.

I’m thinking that it could have been wrecked resulting in different doors and windshield frame issues
