Here's a great video produced in 1998 by General Motors Communications Support Group for Buick Communications. Written and directed by author/biographer Lawrence R. Gustin (one of the very few writers active today who extensively interviewed people close to the founder of General Motors, William Durant, and who also has a very rich background in researching and presenting Buick history), this video presents a detailed walk through the history of Buick from its early roots with David Dunbar Buick, all the way through to the late 90s. Narrated by Bill Harris, you'll enjoy a wide collection of Buick memorabilia including photos, newspaper articles, and film clips. (Video is presented in two parts.)

1955 BUICK CENTURY RIVIERA 2-DR. HARDTOP -- " HOTTEST BUICK IN HISTORY"
That's what the advertisers stated, that this year's issues of Buick were
the hottest in Buick history. One glance at this beauty and you can
readily agree. This red and white hardtop looks very hot. There were
80,338 of these Century hardtops sold this year whereas the top line
Roadmaster Riviera hardtop sold 28,071 units. Starting in the early
fifties, hardtop styling was introduced and it took off from there with
every make mimicing the hardtop craze. And one can see why. There is
something about the hardtop styling that states power and sportiness and
sexiness. This example here would cost $2,600 new and was powered only
with a V8, 322 cid with 236 bhp. There's your power element. This year
all GM makes had wraparound windshields. And Buick offered the improved
Dynaflow automatic transmission. Buick came in 3rd place in car sales
behind Chevy and Ford and in front of Plymouth the low priced make. So all
of the Buick levels: Special, Super, Century and Roadmaster together sold
close to 800,000 cars. Looking at this Century hardtop it's not hard to
understand why. Thanks very much for viewing this superb 1955 Buick
Century Riviera hardtop coupe.
Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by
Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History
Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim:
"No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into
the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar
Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom
fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the
bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of
another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their
invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men,
William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building
business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant
realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with
Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were
regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks
through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the
compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for
the largest company in the world."

1968 Buick Riviera Custom Orng Windermere022313
This handsome Riviera has been tricked out with induction parts from a
Skylark. There was no GSX Riviera, but if they had made one, this is what
it probably would have looked like. The Riviera surely was a luxury
performance car..and a few more performance parts would have not been
amiss. Methinks Buick missed an opportunity that this owner has realized.
Notice the action of the vacuum operated headlamps...initiated by turning
on the headlight switch.

Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National
Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985
Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National.
Per the History Channel's exact video description:
attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents
Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try
to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed
equipment (including turbo engines, fuel
injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean
The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given
the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're
supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair
time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified
track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing.
They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle
cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on

1947 Buick Super 4 door Sedan Blk
Just to show you that Buick had a very nice family sedan available post
war. Notice how nice the fabrics are, surely long wearing, and the
bilateral symmetry of the dash..notice the clustering on both sides of the
radio speaker. Notice also that the turn signal stalk is on the right side
of the steering column, next to the gearshift. The pedal operated parking
brake is interesting too, most parking/emergency brakes were of a pistol
grip type at this time. Dynaflow would not be available until the 1949

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!
