1941 BUICK ROADMASTER CONVERTIBLE
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #939.2 - Buicks like this 1941 Roadmaster were known for their performance, as well as their quality and luxury appointments. To take advantage of the exceptional breathing of the Buick valve-in-head "Fireball" inline 8 cylinder engine, in 1941 Buick became the first major manufacturer to feature multiple carburetors as a factory-installed option which Buick christened "compound carburetion". With 320cid and compound carburetion the Roadmaster had 165hp at 3,800rpm, 15 more than the strongest Cadillac and 5 more than Packard's 180, making the Roadmaster a true gentleman's Hot Rod. This 1941 Roadmaster convertible coupe is one of only 1,845 built, finished in black with red leather upholstery and enclosed with a black cloth top piped in matching red, it features red painted steel wheels with trim rings, skirted rear fenders, a spotlight, radio and even has a power-operated top. It has been conscientiously restored to very attractive and usable condition, a quality high performance convertible coupe that can be toured with confidence and which anyone will be proud to own and drive. With the compound carburetion Fireball engine's power and 3.9:1 rear axle it is a powerful performer that will cruise at today's highway speeds in style and luxury.
