By the position of the side trim it's a 88, most probably a Super 88, and rather a 2-door sedan than a coupé. There was a (rare) Super 88 Club Coupe and a Super 88 Holiday hardtop coupe with different window framing.

YES IT'S IS A 1951 SUPER 88.
I CAN TELL BECAUSE OF THE "STRIGHT" GRILE "BAR". I OWNED A 1951 SUPER 88 4 DOOR, MY FIRST CAR!

THE '98 HAD A DIFFERENT BODY AS DID THE REGULAR 88. 88 HAD THE CHEVORLET PLATFORM WHILE THE 98 HAD THE FULL SIZE BUICK PLATFORM.

I PAID $85.00 FOR IT IN 1959. I STILL HAVE THE '59 MASS NUMBER PLATES.
BACK THEN YOU GOT NEW PLATES EACH YEAR IN JANUARY.
IT WAS ALWAYS AROUND 10 DEGRESS WHEN YOU HAD PLAY WITH RUSTED BOLTS TO CHANGE THEM.
