Old photo, white border. February 1951.
Price: $7.00 Size: About 4 and 5/8 x 3 and 1/4″
Written on the back, “Feb. 1951.”
A great shot of a young boy (we’re already thinking 1950’s with that striped shirt, right?) in the driver’s seat of this beastly-looking vehicle 😉 ……a 1950 Buick Special, and he’s looking back at the camera with a big grin. On the driver’s side quarter panel we can just about make out the lettering Dynaflow, which was Buick terminology for an automatic transmission.
Regarding the exact model, for comparison see: Hometown Buick’s 1950 Buick Special Jetback Coupe – Model 46, and 1950 Buick Special Jetback Sedanet – Model 46S. I think it’s either of these. It’s a little hard to tell because of the angle in our photo and the back end being cut off.
