Car: Buick Invicta 2-dr Hardtop
What makes it special: Buick’s Invicta was produced for the 1959 to 1963 model years. It was a continuation of Buick’s Century concept that mated the standard-sized LeSabre body with the larger 401 cu in “Nailhead” engine, creating the first “Banker’s Hot Rod.”
What made it famous: The Invicta series was a full line of body styles for the 1959 model year, but sales never reached that of the entry-level LaSabre or the top-of-the-line Electra models. It did stay consistent with the sales of the sporty mid-priced models.
Why I would want one: I love the “menacing scowl” of the front, and it’s a very stylish car. The use of chrome is enough without being “over-the-top.”
Fun fact: The Invicta name was taken from latin meaning unconquerable, invincible, unbeatable, unvanquished according to Buick.
