1948 Buick Roadmaster Convertible

VIN: 148I3855

This Buick Roadmaster went through a frame-off restoration in the 1980's and was freshened up with new paint just a few years ago. During the re-paint the hydraulic system was rebuilt, new exhaust manifolds were installed, a new radiator was added, all bulbs were replaced, and new carpeting was added. The car was originally gray with a beige canvas convertible top, now it's Honolulu Blue with a white vinyl top. The car originally came from Buffalo, NY and was properly maintained by the same mechanic for the past 14 years.

This was Buick's premium and best-appointed model, known for interior luxury and quiet operation. There are few other cars like this from this era. One of only 11,503 units produced in that year!

Instructions for operation and maintenance are included in sale!
