Lot #1230.5 - Better known as the "HOT ROD" Buick, the Series 60 Century model was the same wheelbase and body as the lower 'Special' series, but with added trim amenities-and the higher horsepower Roadmaster engine. The model name came about with Buick's first 1936 Century model that had the capability to cruise at 100 mph, hence, the Century. The favorite cops and robbers TV show of the 1950s- 'Highway Patrol'- starring Broderick Crawford, also immortalized the Buick Century, as the star often drove ? a Buick Century 'Black and White' in the show. It should be noted that the actual California-CHP cars, were in fact, the Special series 2 door Sedan cars with the Century markings, Roadmaster engines and 3-speed manual transmissions.
