1959 Buick Le Sabre Convertible (Model 4467)

The ’59 Buicks were a complete break from the past. These were the lowest, sleekest Buicks yet. The slim canted fins of the “Delta Wing” rear styling had never been seen on Buicks before. Even the model names were new. Limited, Super, Century, and Special were respectively replaced by Electra 225, Electra, Invicta, and LeSabre. LeSabre, the lowest-priced Buick, took its name from an acclaimed Harley Earl show car of 1951.

There were changes under the skin as well. All but the LeSabre got a new 401-cubic inch V8 rated at 325 horsepower; LeSabres carried over a 364-inch 250-horse engine from ’58. There was also a new frame. A wider track and changes to suspension geometry improved handling.
