Homepage. This page: A group of original photographs showing a '54 Buick Model 66R in Ontario, Canada.

Buick Century Riviera.

Thanks to the car's prominent badging, it didn't take long to work out what this particular automobile is - a Buick of the 1950s, while the registration plates confirm the location as Ontario, Canada. The first photo shows a lady stood alongside the gleaming Buick - a 1954 model, registered in Ontario, Canada, during 1955. The chrome and the paintwork both glisten, with the lady's dress reflecting well in the Buick's front wing (fender) on a bright day in May 1955.
Some digging around online has identified the exact model as a 1954 Buick Century Riviera Hardtop Coupe, model 66R.

The second photo shows the same lady looking a little more cheerful now, behind the wheel of the mighty Buick. In addition to two-door Hardtop Coupes, the '54 range also included four-door sedans, convertible coupes, estate wagons, Roadmasters, and the Skylark convertible to name just a selection.

The final photo in this set dates to September 1955 or thereabouts. A chap, with camera over his shoulder, is seen with the Buick - by now looking quite dusty and far from the immaculate condition seen in the earlier shots.

Quite a few classic and vintage Buicks now feature in the gallery section of the site. These include a 1955 Buick Special, quite similar to the car on this page, and a side-on view of a '57 Roadmaster.
