Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 14787169
Sold for $93,500 at 2013 RM Auction - Hershey.
With World War II over, automobile production resumed and struggled to keep up with the demand. Buick chose to keep their 1947 models largely the same as the original post-war cars of 1946. It was certainly a sellers' market that fostered a booming job creation arena and brought about newfound successes. For 1947, Buick found nearly 79,000 buyers for their Roadmaster vehicle.

This Convertible Coupe was seldom driven by its original lady owner, who, after many years, sold it to an Ohio collector named Len Immke. Years later, it was sold to his friend, Jim Miller. Mr. Miller kept the car original and occasionally drove it. After years of enjoying the car, it was sold to Charles Cawley, who had the Buick cosmetically restored to very high standards. Mr. Miller missed the car and was able to persuade Mr. Cawley to sell it back to him.

The car is finished in Sequoia Cream, with maroon leather and tan cloth upholstery with a black cloth top. It is equipped with a power front bench seat, power windows, an AM radio, a heater, a power top, and carpeted floor mats.

Power is from a 320.2 cubic-inch 'Fireball' valve-in-head inline eight-cylinder engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission.
