Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 15240141
Sold for $71,500 at 2006 Monterey Sports & Classic Car Auction.
Sold for $79,750 at 2010 RM Auctions - Automobiles of Amelia Island.
The 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible finished in cream color with red interior was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction held in Monterey, California. It was offered without reserve and expected to sell between $60,000-$80,000. It is powered by a 320-cubic-inch inline-eight cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower. It is equipped with a Dynaflow automatic transmission - a popular feature of the time. The popularity was so great, the Buick was forced to double its schedule of proposed installations.

In 2003 the vehicle was treated to a full restoration and has traveled less than 300 miles since new. At the conclusion of the auction the lot had been sold netting $71,500.

In 2010, this Buick Roadmaster Convertible Coupe (Model 76C) was offered for sale at RM Auctions 'Automobiles of Amelia Island' sale in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was estimated to sell for $70,000 - $90,000. As bidding came to a close, the car has been sold for the sum of $79,750, inclusive of buyer's premium.
