1953 Buick Golden Anniversary Colors-Fabrics

A dealer-only album more commonly referred to as a "color & trim album," this 1953 color & trim album is one of only a handful known to exist; it is THE definitive reference source for the correct restoration of your 1953 Buick.  Golden cover commemorates Buick’s 50th gold Anniversary, this extremely rare album measures 9" x 11-1/2".  It is the actual album used by Buick dealers for their customers to select their exterior paint color(s)/interior fabric(s)/leather combination(s).  It contains an actual sample swatch of each interior fabric and leather offered.  Also contains a large 4-1/4" x 9-1/4" laminated sample of each color of paint offered.  Provides verification as to which paint colors/interior fabrics/leathers were offered by 1953 Model type (often called "color & trim combinations").  The BHA offers an informative piece of 1953 literature that will enable you to verify all of the 1953 color & trim combinations that were available by Model type (BHA item #01009 - Buick 1953 Prices & Accessories, Models, Color Combinations, Interiors, Standard Equipment, Factory Equipment, Accessories - $30.00); however, if you need verification of the actual appearance of a particular fabric or leather, the BHA can help.  Using high-resolution, we will digitize the actual sample you need at a nominal cost of $10.00 per sample and send you an actual size print of it (printed at actual size so that you can correctly match fabric patterns, pattern repeats and/or leather grain).  Please feel free to contact us at orders@BuickHeritageAlliance.org with your specific needs, and we will do our best to assist you!
