1941 Buick Series 70 Roadmaster Convertible Coupe Vehicle Profile

1941 Buick Series 70 Roadmaster
Convertible Coupe
Engine #: 74330444
High bid of $105,000 at 2006 Vintage Motor Cars in Arizona. (did not sell)
Sold for $104,500 at 2010 Gooding and Company - Scottsdale Auction.
Buick introduced a new engine called the 'Fireball' eight with a new induction system called 'Compound Carburetion.' This was a dual-carburetor setup with just the first carburetor working at slow speed and idle. At higher acceleration or at higher speeds, the second carburetor engaged for more fuel flow. This, along with additional factory changes, meant that horsepower of both the Roadmaster and Limited was 165, a full 15 more horsepower than Cadillac's V8.

This example has been given a complete body-off restoration since new. The bodywork is finished in Lancaster Gray, a factory color that complements the open Buick rather nicely. There are a long list of factory features including a push-button Sonomatic radio, fender skirts, a gravel guard molding, a vacuum-assisted top, bumper wing tips, heater, power antenna, Dante Red wheels and a defroster.

In 2010, this car was offered for sale at Gooding & Company's Scottsdale Auction in Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $80,000 - $110,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $104,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
