1955


EXPLANATION OF 1955 BUICK OVERALL, TWO-TONE AND THREE-TONE COLOR COMBINATIONS
The Buick Motor Division has devised a new system for identifying exterior body finishes used in production on the 1955 models which follows:
Alphabet Code Letters designate colors which are available for solid, two-tone, or three-tone color combinations. The firsst alphabet letter designates the upper color, the 2nd alphabet letter denotes the center color, and the 3rd alphabet letter denotes the color below molding, i.e., Combination AAA would be all Black, and ADB would be Upper-Black, Center-Windsor Gray Metallic, and below moulding- Dover White.

The 3-tone Color Combinations will be available ONLY in the following four color combinations:

 
Upper
Center
Below Molding
ADB
Carlsbad Black
Windsor Gray Metallic
Dover White
EKH
Temple Gray
Stafford Blue Metallic
Cascade Blue
BML
Dover White
Willow Green
Belfast Green Metallic
ASC
