Buick introduced their Roadmaster in 1936 and it would continue until 1958. The Roadmaster rested on the longest wheelbase available to Buick throughout its history.
The 1947 Roadmaster was based on the pre-War design and powered by the proven 'Fireball Dynaflash' inline eight-cylinder engine, mated to a three-speed manual gearbox. The Roadmaster was available in coupe, sedan, convertible and station wagon models.
This Roadmaster Sedanette is painted in two-tone grey with only minor imperfections visible upon close examination. Exterior features include a spotlight, a driver's side mirror, bumper guards, chrome stone guards, wide whitewall tires and painted steel wheels with chrome wheel covers and trim rings. Passenger amenities include a clock, heater, defroster and a Sonomatic radio.
In 2009, it was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $50,000-$70,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for the sum of $44,000 including buyer's premium.
