The Mid-Century Buick Supers are classic examples of design from an era that embraced aviation and progress. The Super's unmistakable "Ventiports" make it easy to distinguish these fine cars from other less appealing bathtub cars that were it's contemporaries. The Buick Supers were just a little shorter and smaller than their larger Roadmaster siblings. What they left of in terms of size, the Supers made up in value. 1949 was the first year of the Buick Special's dynaflow automatic transmission, and a dash and trim restyling made this mid-range model look just as impressive as any other top of the line GM car.
The Special convertible presented here is a wonderfully maintained older restoration with a handsome coat of old ivory paint showing very good condition. The extensive chrome trim is likewise in good to very good condition, with clean bumpers and the iconic Buick grille showing bright luster. Interior upholstery has been updated with a durable tan leather, and excellent choice for an open top car with a broad passenger compartment. Engine and transmission perform well in our light road tests. This Special is a great candidate for anyone on the lookout for a classic drop-top cruiser with the potential for extensive touring.
