Buick 1935-1963 market review 2020

Australia can trace our ties to the Buick brand back over 100 years, including their use as official cars by State Premiers and Prime Ministers. If you’ve got a black 1930s-60s Buick it may have some VIP history.

Money being sought for pre-1950s models has been climbing since 2009 and excellent Straight Eights make $50,000. Cars dating from the 1950s weren’t built here and most are recent imports. However, they are relatively easy to find and often reasonably priced.

Special sedans in good condition cost around $40,000, with the rare Limited hardtop $20,000 dearer. Move into the 1960s and a top-line Electra at $30,000 can be cheaper than some Chevrolets of similar age.

All Models 1935-48 $45,665 [12]

All Models 1949-52 $45,820 [7]

All Models 1953-57 $41,840 [16]

Electra/Invicta 1958-63 $30,615 [4]

Convertible 1952-58 $65,000 [1]
