As the foundation of General Motors, Buick has consistently led Americas auto industry throughout its long history with outstanding engineering, power, and prestige. During the 1930s, Buick competed head-on with Packard and by 1938, Buick president Harlow Red Curtice even had fellow GM division Cadillac in his sights. The Roadmaster name was key to this strategy at Buick, introduced in 1936 and applied to Buicks top models through 1957. By 1938, Buicks powerful Fireball Dynaflash inline 8-cylinder engine and  modern advancements made the Roadmaster one of Americas most desirable road cars. A totally modern restyling of Buick models for 1941 was performed by Harley Earls famous GM Styling studios and positioned Buick for long-term success. Despite dwindling supplies of materials as wartime approached for America, Earls designers pulled off another styling coup for the 1942 Buick line, featuring swept-down Airfoil front fenders running through the bodysides to the rear fenders an industry first. This modern styling theme continued on Buicks through 1948 and influenced custom-car designers and builders for many more years throughout the 1950s. This design was especially attractive on Buicks low-production, top-of-the-line Roadmaster line through 1948. These very fine cars are sought-after by todays collectors for their great looks, 8-cylinder power, relative rarity, and outstanding drivability.
 

This 1948 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe is an outstanding example from the last model year for the winning 1942-48 body design. Handsomely finished in Dark Blue  over Tan cloth & Blue leather upholstery, it benefits handsomely from a correct, top-quality restoration. Former owners include the noted Roadmaster Collection. Its high-torque, 320 CI Buick Fireball Dynaflash 8-cylinder engine is factory-rated at 150 HP, delivering plenty of power for enjoyable open-air touring in concert with Buicks innovative Dynaflow automatic transmission. In addition to a power convertible top, this Roadmaster is equipped with power windows and a power-adjustable front seat, plus a Buick Sonomatic AM radio and gorgeous Art Deco-themed in-dash clock. Desirable period accessories include twin chrome side-view mirrors and twin spot lights, amber fog lamps and the desirable rare fulton traffic finder. Underneath the long hood resides a beautifully detailed and presented engine and engine bay featuring correct components, finishes, and fine details. Gleaming chrome and brightwork, plus period correct whitewall tires on steel wheels with chrome rims and sleek hubcaps finish this Roadmaster off. Freshly detailed and truly beautiful inside and out, this 1948 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe is a high-quality, investment-grade luxury car from the Classic Era and one that is ready to show and tour as desired.
