Convertible Phaeton
This motor car with coachwork by Fisher was the result of a decision made by Buick President Harold Curtis. He realized that Buick needed a luxury car to compete with the best from Cadillac, Packard, and Lincoln. The Model 80C Roadster was introduced in 1936 with such classic touches as hydraulic brakes, independent front suspension, a rakish V-windscreen and bullet headlights. Only 1,064 of these convertible phaetons were produced in 1936.

The long hood of the Roadmaster made it clear that power came from straight-eight engine. In the case of the Model 80, it was a 320 cubic inch overhead-valve unit producing 130 horsepower with loads of torque. It was mated to a three-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted gearshift lever. The chassis was fitted with General Motor's 'Knee-Action' intendent front suspension and solid rear axle. Hydraulic drum brakes were fitted at all corners.

In 1936, the Roadmaster offered a lot of car for the money. Available in two body styles, a 6-passenger Sedan and Convertible Phaeton, the price range began at $1,255 for the former and climbed to $1,565 for the latter.

This example was donated to the Classic Car Club of America Museum by John and Christiane Beebe.
