1936 Buick Series 80 Roadmaster
Sold for $82,500 at 2015 RM Sotheby's Hershey Auction.
1936 was the first year for the exclusive Roadmaster. It was designed to fill the spot between the top-of-the-line Limited limousine and the lower-level Buicks. The Convertible Phaeton body style was the most expensive and limited-production Buick convertible available in 1936, with just 1,064 examples built.

This particular example was completely disassembled and restored. It was finished in Touraine Green with Oriental Green trim. Options and accessories include a proper AM radio, a dashboard clock, and dual Trippe driving lights. The single side-mounted spare, with a full metal cover, was a standard feature on this body style. The 320.2 cubic-inch overhead valve eight-cylinder engine delivers 120 horsepower and is mated to a three-speed manual transmission. At all four corners are hydraulic drum brakes.
