1949 Buick Roadmaster 2-door hardtop convertible
For the sophisticated car collector the sighting of a 1949 Buick Roadmaster 2-door hardtop convertible is very rare indeed. As most car collectors know the major change in automotive design post war did not take place until Harley Earl head of all GM design was able to get his 1949 Buick Roadmaster into production. Yes, ll of the different divisions for General Motors had new body styles but the Buick Roadmaster 2-door hardtop was considered to be the crème de la crème. Besides this car being a Roadmaster, aving the largest Buick body with largest Buick 8-cylinder engine and also having the automatic transmission called Dynaflow. It is a 2-door hardtop. In 1949 the 2-door hardtop was considered a revolution in design because it was thought to look like a hardtop convertible. The main component of course being that the B-Pillar was non-existent and the front window and the rear quarter window when abutted together when closed without any pillars in between. The Roadmaster of course was known for having four of the decorative air take portals on the front fender instead of three like the lesser Super.
Keep in mind that Buick Division had two different bodies that they made for Buick, long body and a short body. They had two different motors that they made one with largest 8-cylinder engine with the most horsepower and one smaller engine. They used this combination as follows, f you got a small body with a small motor you got a special, f you got a small body with a big motor you got a century, span>if you got a big body with a small motor they called it a super, f you got the ultimate combination – the big body with the big motor that was a Roadmaster.
While the Buicks in 1949 of all the different categories have similar looks, he Roadmaster had the presence of a super large body with the super large engine.
For those that don’t know it, arley Earl had two favorite car divisions at General Motors. The first was the LaSalle and the second was the Buick. When LaSalles were discontinued post war, s production cars the Buick became his favorite car for design and experimenting. Thus the 1949 Buick Roadmaster hardtop convertible was the result.
Take a long hard look at the beautiful lines and generous chrome trim on this 1949 Buick Roadmaster. The colors are also special colors that highlight the hardtop design.
