Oxford Diecast Carlsbad Black Cherokee Red Buick Century 1955

Product Code: 87BC55006
13 reviews |
£9.95

The Buick Century was the name given to a series of the company's cars at various intervals between 1936 and 2005. During that time, the shapes varied dramatically and our Buick Century is modelled on one of the vehicles produced by Buick during the mid 1950s, which used their same smaller, lighter Buick body but incorporated a high powered engine. From the four body styles of the original vehicle, the Oxford model is based on the 2-door coupé or sedan. To date, as well as some great two-tone colour schemes, our 1:87 scale authentically researched model has also been released as used exclusively by the California Highway Patrol and as a New York Taxi.

Here our Buick Century makes another bold statement in bright red and black with black interior. It hails from Nebraska registered 21-2235 in 1955. The Century 'signature' is printed in silver along the rear wing panel and a high level of chrome detailing gives further visual impact. And just look at those wheels with whitewall tyres and the bright red wheel inserts.

During this period in real life, the Buick Century was definitely their high performance car with a 236 hp engine. A padded safety dashboard was apparently optional!

    I haven’t taken any of the vehicles out of their boxes; they are beautiful to display. Eventually they will inhabit my 1:87 model railroad and really make a positive impression.
