PICs: Which '55? Buick or Chrysler by John Bono #44944
Tough call...like the Buick - but love that Chrysler (EOM) by Ron Dietrich #44944.1
Not tough for me..Chrysler ! It looks more modern to me. It has a better by Steve Jakubczak #44944.1.1
I'm going with the Buick so I don't have to listen to that Mopar starter every time I go for a ride. (EOM) by John Kuvakas #44944.2ModeratorZone Diplomat
Yeah but then you get to listen to and experience that Hemi. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #44944.2.1
Ahhh, yes! it does sound sweet! (EOM) by John Kuvakas #44944.2.1.1ModeratorZone Diplomat
The "Highland Park Hummingbird" was introduced for 1962. (EOM) by Barry Levittan #44944.2.2
'55 is my fave year for these two cars. Love them both but Chrysler wins by a nose. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #44944.3
Chrysler, of course, but that is a very beautiful Buick as well! (EOM) by Barry Levittan #44944.4
What Jack and Barry said. Don't recall ever seeing a New Yorker convertible before. (EOM) by Bob Jackman #44944.5
Only 946 were built. (EOM) by John Bono #44944.5.1
That is very surprising. I would have thought Chrysler would sell a ton of them. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #44944.5.1.1
Buick (EOM) by George Burgess #44944.6
Buick appears more solid and was faster 0 - 60 and in the quarter than the Chrysler. Hemi Schmemi. (EOM) by Frank Kocour #44944.7
Nailhead shmailhead...I love the Hemi. :- ) (EOM) by Jack Dodds #44944.7.1
Chrysler! I like the color and side trim better. (EOM) by Tim Kubiak #44944.8
Both heavy and clunky, but Buick wins it. '56 was a far better revamp for both. (EOM) by steve kiraly #44944.9
Chrysler, for the reasons stated above. (EOM) by Ed Glorius #44944.10
Chrysler. (EOM) by Dick Johnson #44944.11
Chrysler (EOM) by Terence Slekar #44944.12
This is a tough one, as I like both. But push come to shove, I take the BUICK! (EOM) by George Schire #44944.13
The all-new Forward Look Chrysler looks more upscale. The Buick is beautiful, though. (EOM) by Al Dorado #44944.14
Buick...if it was a comparison on the same cars for 56 it would be a different answer (EOM) by David Angeloni #44944.15
Chrysler, looks like it's moving while standing still, the Buick looks like a brick stuck in place. (EOM) by Duncan Pohl #44944.16
Chrysler does it for me. (EOM) by John Bono #44944.17
