As manufacturers continued to dress their cars with more brightwork than ever before, they also began building engines that hovered in the 300 HP-range, the practice enticing younger buyers into the showrooms. Buicks 364 CI V-8 engine, known as the Nailhead, was standard equipment on the topline Roadmaster and generated a whopping 300 HP. For these luxurious models, Buick focused heavily on promoting a lifestyle of effortlessness; a quiet, distinguished wealth, with an outspoken flair and a zest for modern luxury that would appeal to a younger, professional set. One print ad for the 1957 Buick Roadmaster went so far as to say, Proud choice of the man who carries success with ease. This particular 1957 Buick Roadmaster has rolled a mere 19,207 miles and is one of just 3,826 produced. Refinished in the original colors of Seminole Red and Shell Beige, the lengthy Roadmaster features all the brightwork expected of the flagship marque, including the specialized roof and trunk moldings. Powered by its original 364 CI Nailhead engine and automatic transmission, the car aims to coddle with power steering, power brakes, dual sideview mirrors, a Wonderbar radio, heater, defroster, in-dash clock and more. The interior is upholstered with the factory two-tone material that matches the exterior, the padded dashboard is trimmed with engine-turned aluminum detailing, the gauges all seemingly impeccable. Fitted with a dual exhaust, the note is authoritative without being intrusive, powerful without making a fuss. Hallmarks of Buick. Rolling on wide whitewall tires with chrome wire wheels, the look is spectacularly swanky but in a restrained way that only Buick could build.
