This 1949 Buick Super Series 50 Station Wagon is one of only 1,830 examples created during that year. The platform was the new General Motors C-body which it shared with the Roadmaster, though the Series 50 had a shorter wheelbase. Under the hood was an eight-cylinder engine which produced 1500 horsepower and mated to a three-speed manual gearbox. A Dynaflow drive with column-mounted shift levers was offered as optional equipment. Other standard equipment included cloth seats, cigar lighter, ashtray, full wheel trim discs and automatic choke.
The most popular Series 50 Buick was the Sedan which saw a production total of 131,514 in 1949, making it the most popular vehicle in Buick's lineup.
