Description1948 Buick Roadmaster convertible model 76C, the top-of-the-line car from Buick that year. It has power windows, power seat and power top. The engine is a Fireball DynaFlash 320cid straight eight with a power rating of 144hp. It is a 3-speed on the column and shifts very smooth. It is in excellent condition inside and out runs drives and looks like it a new car. Very rare Aztec Poly Green original color and the all new green leather interior is a match to the original style, new carpet, new beige convertible top, paint and chrome. This car was never a rusty car, not wrecked or damaged in any way, the paint was starting to crack so the body and interior panels were professionally and completely taken apart and each panel was stripped by media blasting to bare metal and professionally cleaned, treated, sealed, primed, painted with a superior base coat/clear coat system then polished into a real gem. The drivetrain is all original and unrestored other then some small cosmetics by choice since otherwise it has been so extremely well maintained and managed over the years. All wiring and parts are correctly still in place. We chose not to do the undercarriage because its frame and floors are great and the underside is undercoated thick and original. The steering, front and rear suspension, and brakes are all in great condition. It has been two owner car originally bought in 1948 and purchased by its second owner in 1951 or 1952 and that owner had it until we purchased from his estate a couple of years ago. We brought her back to her former beauty. It was a show car for most of its life with many mentions over the years in the Buick Bugle and other publications from various shows, and is ready to be again.
