The company dates back to before the turn of the 20th century when it was called the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company; in 1903 it became the Buick Motor Company and of course the man behind the original vision was founder David Dunbar Buick.
It is probably safe to say that Mr. Buick would have thought you were crazy if you told him that his surname would be emblazoned on modern automobiles that would’ve blown his mind into the 21st century but that is what we mean by staying power.
Over the century-plus that Buicks have been gracing the roadways they have come up with some memorable models, and with this in mind we would like to take a glance at the 1957 Buick Super.
The Super series was intended to provide an option for people who wanted a big Buick but did not have an especially big bankroll. The first Buick Super came out for the 1940 model year, but we are going to highlight the 1957 Super. During that year the car was offered as a two or four-door Riviera or a convertible coupe.
If you’re looking for a rare 1957 Buick Super the convertible should be your target as there were just 2056 of them produced. The price tag on these was $3980. The most popular Super during the 1957 model year was the four-door Riviera; 41,665 of these were sold.
1957 was the beginning of the end for the Buick Super series as 1958 would be its final year of production. However, it stayed around a long time and these cars are close to the hearts of many classic Buick fans.
