Buick is America's oldest still existing car brand, and the brand was and is part of the great General Motors empire, where it belongs in the upper part of the hierarchy. The model designation "Standard" suggests in a nice way that the model is the basic version of Buick's six-cylinder models of that year. The model "Master" was the top model. The model range became a great success for Buick, which manifested their place in the hierarchy.

From 1936 to 1958, Buick's Special model range represented the marque's entry level full-size automobile. The '36 was a very successful year for Buick and also marked the first time of using names rather than the simple serial numbers which had been in use before. The Special continued to also be known as the 40-series.

The 1960 Electra and Electra 225 received a minor facelift with a concave grille and horizontal headlights centered by Buick's then-new "Trishield" logo, which is still in use today. Reintroduced to Electras and other Buicks for 1960 were the chrome VentiPorts first introduced in 1949 and last seen in 1957. Inside, a revised instrument panel featured a "Mirromatic" speedometer for which the lens could be adjusted to better visibility to suit the driver. A new two-spoke steering wheel with horn bars was introduced, replacing the time honored horn ring then still common to most automobiles.
