The early post war Buicks retained early-40s styling but this had changed by 1950. These years were very successful years even if the products were not always at the leading edge of technology, performance or styling. The Dynaflow automatic transmission was ordered on some 85% of all new Buicks by 1951 although the overhead-valve V8 was not introduced until 1953. After the chrome-and-fins era in 1958 the early 1960s produced some well proportioned cars. In this compilation of road tests, driving impressions, specification and performance data, and model introductions the cars covered are: Dynaflow Buicks, 50-series Super, Roadmaster 41, Super Riviera V8, Century, Century Special, Roadmaster Special, Special Estate Wagon, Century Hardtop, Limited, Invicta, Electra, Electra 225, Le Sabre, Special, Skylark, Wildcat.
