Description
Lot #657 - Bruce Willis's 1948 Buick Roadmaster Sedenette 2 door Sometimes called a Torpedo body, the Buick Roadmaster fastback coupe, Model 76-S, was the fullest expression of the full fender Streamliner style. This car is an excellent example of a top of the line American luxury automobile from the post WWII era. Weighing in at 4,065 pounds, 20,649 were produced at a base price of $2,297. Few survived as the fastback body quickly went out of style when the hardtop coupe was introduced the following year. Today this body is rarely seen and it is even rarer to find one in unmolested original condition. A 1948 Buick Roadmaster Sedenette was campaigned in the 1950 Carrera Panamerican Mexico road race. The documented previous owner of this top of the line 1948 American luxury automobile was Bruce Willis. The car is complete with a beautiful leather interior, radio, heater, chrome surrounds for all windows, turn signals, day/night mirror, dome light, twin ashtrays, cigar lighter, trip odometer, clock, and creamy butter yellow paint. The car has been converted to a 12 volt electric system for ease of starting and there is no rust on the body or frame. The current owner for the past 6 years has rebuilt the entire drive train including the engine, 3 speed transmission, torque tube, and radiator. The car is a dependable runner and easily cruises at freeway speeds and the owner reports it is comfortable to drive in city traffic.
