Love all of them but the 56 is the most refined IMO.

While they are all slightly different and show some evolution, I cannot say that any is superior to the other two.

Three of my favorites!  But when put to a vote, it's the GRILLE of the '54 that wins out.  I always loved the "toothy" grille on Buick's.  It was as much a trademark as the Port Holes.

I like the headlights on the 56 more than the others but all three are excellent.

The order for me is '55, '56, '54.  The '55 is my favorite Buick of that decade. I much prefer the Century to the Roadmaster; its more sporty looking.

1956 has always been my favorite Buick of the Fifties. Tie for 2nd.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

All great images.  But I like the nose and grille on the 54 the best.

My favorite Buick of the fifties decade is the '59.

@georgeschire  They had some really great colors for the '59 Buick.

@jack-dodds, yes they sure did.  My Dad had a '59 LeSabre 4-door sedan in Ledo Lavender, which is the color on the 2-door hardtop in my photos above.

It took me a minute, but by the slightest margin, I'll go with the 54, then the 56 and finally the '55.

@georgeschire My favorite '59 Buick colors were Glacier Green/white and Tawny Rose/white (shown on your 4drht. pic); although Tampico Red looked pretty cool on the convert. and 2drht. as well.

George; I will bet you will opt for the Ledo Lavender  '59 Buick wagon that Sergio is releasing in the near future then?
