Yeah, I know. The Century name always signified the bigger engine in the smaller body. I think it began in 1938.Sachi, the Century was the Super body with the Roadmaster engine (364 cubic inch nailhead). This is the three window hardtop coupe. Each tailight asembly weighs at least 100 lbs.
No question there! The 58 Buicks and Oldsmobiles in particular are astonishingly, um, baroque. GM had left Harley Earl in charge a few years too long!The '57 looks way beter than the '58, which coined the "Detroit Panic of 1958" legend because of the bizzare ugly cars.
