Alan R T, Buick never had a push button transmission. All cars from Chrysler did from '56 to '64. Mercury had one optionally in '57 and '58, as did Edsel in '58 only. Packard and Rambler also had push button automatics, but no GM car ever did. Today they are back, although touch rather than push, on Lincolns.

My first car was a '53 Buick which was blue and white. Transmission was push button and I've never seen such a tranny before or since.

Fixed. Thanks, Alan.

That is not a Special; it's a Super. The Special was smaller and had a four window design, not the six window that this car has. The Special was the entry level Buick, on the same platform as the Olds 88, while the Super was on the same platform as Cadillac. The Super was one rung below the Roadmaster, which would have had one more porthole.

I had a beautiful 1953 Buick Super Riviera in Hawaii. Same beautiful green color. A very eye pleasing car.

My dad's first Buick was a 1949 four-door Buick Special he bought in Wilmington DE. Every two years after that, he'd buy a new one until about 1970, after he retired. Wish I had kept a picture of each of those cars. They were wonderful.
