1950 Buick Roadmaster Convertible
This 1950 Buick Roadmaster Convertible is an extremely original example that's been patiently awaiting straightforward restoration. Black with red interior. A straight and honest car just out of long-term ownership. It's all there and it's all nicely intact and straight. Not currently running as it has been off the road for several years. The hood is also not fully attached. The Roadmaster has long enjoyed a well-deserved reputation as Buicks prestige model. For 1950, it made a splash with one of the most memorable front grilles of the post-war period. Buicks signature waterfall grille gave way to a deluge of chrome that swept over and down the front bumper. The Roadmasters elegant design featuring front fenders that plunged toward the rear before blending with the curvaceous rear fenders. The four ventiports on either side of the hood made the Roadmaster immediately identifiable compared to lesser models, which had only three. Under the hood was the most potent version of Buicks familiar Fireball inline-eight engine paired with a Dynaflow automatic transmission. Buick produced far fewer convertibles than coupes and sedans; only 2,964 are known to have rolled off the production line for the 1950 model year, making this wonderfully presented example rare and highly desirable.
