Not a hard one for me. I never warmed to the early fifties Chrysler designs.

The Buick is definitely the most modern of the two but I still prefer the Chrysler.

The Chrysler had the ride, sound (that's "lack of"), and a great engine.  The Buick just sort of whined away.

I prefer the look of the Buick but that Chrysler is handsome.

Chrysler looking quite dated, especially the two-piece windshield. Big improvement coming for '53. I voted for the Buick tonight.

I surprised myself and voted for the Chrysler. It may be the photos and the colors, but it looks handsome.

Also saw this one live recently.

The look of the Chrysler just makes it stand out.

That's a '54, Ed, with much improved styling vs. the '52.

Buick for me. Last of the straight eight Roadmasters.

Buick's more modern styling wins this one by just a nose; their respective styling couldn't be more different from one another.  I really like both cars though, especially in the 2drht. version.

These Chrysler are handsome, but IMO red/black combos MAKE ANY 1950's car look better!  It's hard to beat red & black tu-tones. 😎

As mentioned before this red/black Chrysler is a '54 not a '52.
