Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 142I2726
Sold for $126,500 at 2012 RM Auctions at Amelia Island, Fla.
Buick built 1,845 Series 70 Roadmaster Convertible Coupes in 1941. They produced more convertibles than any automaker except Ford in 1941. Buick offered such a wide array of body styles for 1941, with a total of 26 options to select from on five separate series. Production increased 34 percent, qualifying Buick for fourth place in industry sales.

The Roadmaster series was powered by Buick's famous overhead valve, inline eight that offered 165 horsepower. The base price when new was $1,775 (before options). Big news for Buick for 1941 was the Compound Carburetor, the forerunner to the four-barrel carburetor. Optional on Specials and standard on all other models, a pair of carburetors would extract more power from Buick's 320-cid 'Fireball' straight-eight good enough for 165 horsepower on Roadmasters. Buicks were the highest-powered standard production cars in America.

This example was rescued from a junk yard and required a total restoration. The car is painted Lancaster Grey and trimmed in red leather. It sports a black top with red piping.
