1959 was a year of change for Buick. Buick's new cars were very different from the 1958 models they replaced. Watch as brand-new Buicks with new model names and updated styling come together and roll off the assembly line.
This is a 1959 AmphiBuick. Actually, three Cuban families (11 people) tried to reach Florida in this '59 Buick in 2004. I can't imagine the amount of work that went into waterproofing that car.
It was their second attempt to get to Florida, but again they were arrested by the US Coastguard and again the vessel was shot and sunk.
