The LeSabre started life with the 364 cubic inc Buick V-8 developing up to 250 horsepower. Engineering was Buick's forte in this time. Their big finned aluminum drum brakes were the best in the ;business, though their attempt at revamping their Dynaflow automatics with a new second version starting in 1958 was a mixed bag. The 1959 fins were "canted" and unlike anything else on the road, and the dual headlamps were "canted" as well.
For 1960, the cars were only mildly face lifted with a new concave grille flanked by dual headlamps on a horizontal plane and re-sculptured body sides. A 300- horsepower version of the LeSabre V-8 became optional at extra cost. Buick's troubles Triple Turbine automatic was not ont he option list for 1960, but the better and less expensive Twin Turbine automatic was retained.
