Multiple Choice: 1957 Buick or 1957 Mercury?

Once again, you’re at an auction (in this case, it’s a Silver Auction) and you can afford to bring home only one of these classics. Your choice involves 1957 models from two of Detroit’s upscale brands — a two-tone green Buick Century and a red-and-white Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.¬†Which one do you want, and why?

    Buick. Better styling, IMHO.

  2. HonestAbe says:

    Buick has always been a superior auto to Mercury, although this particular one is very nice looking.

  3. The Turnpike Cruiser has more styling cues like the rear window I believe is a power slider. Push button transmission , very innovative.
    Now all the cars look nearly the same thanks to government regulations forcing saftey & CAFE standards.

  4. Dale L Charpentier says:

    Partial to GM back then; heavier and smoother riding plus more stylish.

  5. I like the mercury but the old :y:block is a terrible engine with oiling problems.the 1958 model is much better with the replacement engine ford and mercury introduced.

  6. Ted Feagan says:

    My dad had a 1957 turnpike cruiser, it was nice car.

  7. Jack windt says:

    Buick…… Everytime

  8. Tom Pena says:

    Y-Block is a good engine. Just change the oil .Had a 56 Buick ,not a good car. For my money, I”d go with the Merc!
