What in 1965 was Del-Ton Buick, at 363 Delaware in the City of Tonawanda, is now home to Awnings Plus, FiveWest Enterprises, and FW Signs. In later years, Del-Ton (on DELaware in TONawanda, get it?) would go on to become Skill Buick, and in 2005 Keyser Buick — where I got my first job in the car business. Keyser closed in 2007 in the great GM paring down of single-brand franchises; it was sold and moved to Don Davis Pontiac-GMC on Niagara Falls Boulevard, where it remains today.
In 1965, when this ad ran, Buick had 27 different models, ranging from the Special Thin-pillar Coupe at $2,343 on up to the Electra 225 convertible at $4,440.
