The 1949 Buick Super combined the new body design of the Roadmaster with the shorter wheelbase of the Special to create a highly regarded appearance that helped keep Buick just behind Chevrolet and Ford in Detroit's production race. The Super's new design integrated smoothly with the shorter wheelbase and contributed to it being far and away the best-selling Buick model. While the more practical 4-door sedan was the most popular the distinctive, streamlined fastback silhouette of the 2-door Sedanette was easily the most attractive as is easily seen in this comprehensively restored example. Its metallic grey exterior shows the Sedanette's lines to advantage, letting the styling speak for itself and showing off features like the skirted rear wheels and small fender top taillights. The interior is thoroughly redone in maroon leatherette and plaid patterned cloth and it is equipped with Dynaflow, radio with Buick's signature room mounted swivel antenna, hubcaps with sombrero trim rings, whitewall tires, heater, and clock. The body colored dashboard and instruments are highly detailed, as are the trunk and engine compartments. This is a very nice example of a car rarely seen in such uniformly high quality condition with exceptional attention to materials, workmanship and attention to detail.
