GM Fairfax plant 1953 Buick Olds copy

A sea of new 1953 Buick-Oldsmobile-Pontiac products await loading onto the back of General Motors-based haulers, although a Dodge has crept into the mix. The March 20, 1953, photo reflects a strong model year in sales for all three makes with Buick and Pontiac, in particular, each recording their second-highest sales numbers in history to that point.
