This Buick Century convertible began life as the personal vehicle of GM Vice President of Styling Bill Mitchell, protégé and successor to Harley Earl. Because of his position, he enjoyed a fair amount of latitude when it came to creating custom cars and was responsible for more than 50 concepts and customs during his 42-year career. GM documentation confirmed that this car was built with 225 unique features and trim cast in brass - a form of construction that GM reserved for special vehicles. On build sheets, the car was referred to as 'Buick Century 1956X'.

It was found in a garage in 1991 disassembled and with the trim piled and scattered but with a 1964 letter from Buick Motor Division stating it was the car built for Mitchell. Restoration began in 2010 and was completed in 2019.

Most of the 225 features remained intact even if hidden within the car but some had to be remanufactured. A few features include a '1956X' grill plate, a 2-tone paint scheme, Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with knock-off hubs, side-exit exhausts, a performance-tuned V8, powered front swiveling bucket seats, tachometer, power telescoping headrests, and chrome foot pedals.
