Beautiful isn’t always an adjective associated with cars. Today, when it is, we usually think of flashy sports cars and expensive luxury sedans. But don’t forget about the timeless beauties—the models that have grown more beautiful over the years—their silhouettes still instantly recognizable no matter how much time passes.
MSN Autos recently featured a list of the 15 most beautiful American cars of all time. Not one. but two Buicks made the list.
The first is the 1953 Buick Skylark—Buick’s old-timey luxury drop top four-seater. With a cloth convertible top and windshield that sat lower than typical Buick convertibles of the time, the ’53 Skylark exuded its own unique sense of confidence and elegance that set itself apart from all other models of its time. Fat whitewall tires framing shiny wire wheels sat under a body that sported overstated body lines and basically screamed for attention.
The second, from ten model years later, is the 1963 Buick Riviera. Originally designed as a Cadillac, the Riviera found its eventual home under the Buick brand name. The ’63 Riviera sold like hotcakes in its first year, selling out of all 40,000 manufactured units. The luxury coupe boasted rigid lines and an elongated body—a sculpted marvel that turned as many heads back then as it still would today.
