Me and 1960 Buicks
Welcome to The 1960 Buick ( The site now contains 35 pages of 1960 Buick material!

Check out added content in the following areas: toys, 'period' photos, movies, and Lou Ehlers. Also, the VIN decoding section has been edited to make it easier to use.

The intent of the site is to entertain and educate about 1960 Buicks. The Table of Contents on the left will take you to your page of choice (just click the radio button). From each web page, you can return Home or page forward/back using the navigation buttons at the bottom of the page. There is so much info, you may need to poke around a bit to find what you need.

1960 BUICK OWNERS: I am now maintaining a registry of these fine cars. At the present time it has over 750 unique vehicle entries. The intent is to track the surviving 1960 Buicks, and create a database of info about the different models and various plants that built them. I am interested in YOUR car! Please EMAIL ME FOR A COPY OF THE FORM to enter your car in this registry. All information is kept confidential and used for research purposes only.

Lastly, please consider joining the Buick Club of America ( It's a great way to meet other Buick enthusiasts, find parts, and learn about your car.
