Buick was on a roll in 1949. With nearly 350,000 Buicks built, some 85,000 of them being the top-of-the-line Roadmaster, new body designs like this Roadmaster Convertible Coupe firmly established Buick as one of America's top marques. With 150 horsepower from the Roadmaster's 320 cubic inch overhead valve straight eight, it was one of the fastest, too. 1949 also marked the first appearance of one of the most recognized of all American styling features, the "ventiports" that would distinguish the flanks of Buicks well into the Seventies. This example beautifully presented in Sequoia Cream with Red leather interior and Tan cloth top and top boot is a dead straight, crisp, sharply restored example with everything done right from top to bottom. There are no shortcuts. No details were overlooked. Fortunately it is not a trailer queen, but rather a fully-functioning, brilliantly restored and presented Buick that drives -- if anything -- better than it looks. And it looks wonderful. Its appearance, presentation, gorgeous color selection and operation breathe quality which is instantly recognizable. This Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe would have been front and center on any Buick dealer's showroom in 1949 and it has been restored and maintained to the same standards.
