History[edit | edit source]
The Buick Special was introduced in 1938 as the marque's entry-level full-size automobile, alongside the Buick Century, and lasted until 1942. The second generation was released in 1954 and lasted until 1958, by which it had become one of America's best-selling vehicles, and had many variants, including coupe and convertible models, as well as the Buick Special Police car. 1961 saw a new Buick Special hit the scene, which modified the line into a series of powerful muscle cars. A further redesign in 1964 saw the car transformed into a more modest vehicle, before the line was discontinued completely in 1969. However, the "Special" marque returned in 1975 for the Buick Century Special, a sports version of the now smaller Century line. Although the Special never resurfaced, the Century went on to become Buick's mid-size vehicle, following a conversion to hatchback form in 1978, a small sedan in 1982 and a family car in 1997, before the line discontinued completely in 2005.
