Went with the 54 but very close call.  Good point of view for comparison.😎👍

I prefer the tail end, grille and wheel arches of the '53.

I agree with Jack on this one.  The 53 just looks better.

53 all the way.The 54 looks like the designers had to earn their keep so they started hanging a bunch of unrelated junk all over it.

Forever like the '53 better.  The '54's strange cut-out rear wheel wells and the tacked on phony looking taillights just don't make it with me.  That said, I'm waiting patiently for Automodello's three '54 releases to add to my collection along with my four '53's.  Can't wait.

1954. Cleaner and newer.

Retired in Dunedin, Florida.

That '53 Buick has always been a favorite of mine !

I love beautifully designed cars that are the same age as me... !

'53, a sentimental favorite for me...although it was a Special 4-door sedan, I was brought home in 1955 from the hospital when I was born, in my parents' '53 Buick.

1954 for me, and I have it on the way from Automodello too. Wish they had done that beautiful color.

Both are nice but I'm going with the more refined '53 Skylark.
