1955 Buick Special
Car for sale by Specialty Sales Classics in Fairfield, California 94533
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

Highly Original & Only Mildly Restored Over the Years
The current owner of this 1955 Buick 46R Special Riviera Hardtop took possession three years ago and informs us that he gets asked about it every time he takes it around town with his sons. While it’s certainly not a show car in its present condition, the current owner has invested in a new fuel tank, fresh brakes/master cylinder and anything else this vehicle has needed to perform at its best. He purchased it from an owner in Washington state who filled us in on more of this one’s life story- it was stored in a barn in Nebraska from 1980 to 2000 and was only mildly restored to keep it as original as possible.
While the next owner may opt to completely restore this classic, it can be enjoyed as a typical daily driver immediately.
Additionally, this 1955 Buick 46R Special Riviera Hardtop has smooth, reliable performance on the open road with solid acceleration and capable handling. The exterior is typical driver quality with some scratches and blemishes to the paint and chrome work. This classic does appear to be highly original, however, so everything is here for a complete restoration effort. The interior is also average driver quality with minor flaws to be found throughout, but this vehicle is very clean for it’s age and easily one of the nicer survivors you’ll find today.
