Convertible Coupe
This 1949 Buick convertible was one of two used to make the film 'Rain Man' in 1988. The movie tells the story of Charlie Babbitt (Tom Cruise), a self-involved car dealer in financial turmoil who learns that his estranged father has died and bequeathed his entire fortune to his older son, Raymond (Dustin Hoffman), who is autistic. All that Cruise's character inherits are his father's rosebushes and the 1949 Buick convertible. Raymond's refusal to fly launches the brothers on a cross-country road trip starring this Sequoia Cream Buick Roadmaster convertible with red leather interior. The Buick convertible had a modified rear suspension to hold the extra weight of the camera equipment plus the cameraman who filmed from the trunk. The current owner is Barry Levinson, the director of the movie 'Rain Man' and he selected Wayne Carini to restore this classic beauty.
