Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 55219939
Engine #: 54077305
Sold for $44,000 at 2017 RM Sothebys : Hershey.
1949 was the first year of a new design for the Buick Super and it shared its C-Body platform with the Roadmaster but on a shortened 121-inch wheelbase. This new body design would be used by Buick until 1953. It featured the Buick 'VentiPorts' and it took its styling cues from the Roadmaster, albeit at a lower price.

This particular Buick Super Convertible has never been fully restored. It has been repainted once, approximately 4 decades ago. It is finished in its original black color, has its original chrome, new red carpet, and a new red leather interior in the correct grain. It is equipped with the factory-optional fog lights and spotlight.

This car is believed to have been sold new in Virginia. Over the following 27 years, it changed hands between three owners, all of whom lived on the same block.

Currently, this Buick has 51,000 miles on its odometer.
