Convertible Coupe
Buick introduced their Roadmaster name in 1936 to celebrate the engineering and design improvements made by Buick that year. Ned Nickles, GM's designer, designed the 1949 Roadmaster and it was the beginning of tailfins for Buick. The Roadmasters were given a platform that measured 126 inches and they were the most highly appointed, premium model in the line. Power was from a 320 cubic-inch overhead valve inline-8 cylinder engine offering 150 horsepower. The Dynaflow automatic transmission was standard equipment.
