Buick Roadmaster History:
Buick introduced its fifth generation of the venerable Roadmaster name in 1949. The car was the first of the "four-hole" Buicks of its era, with the brand's trademark "ventiports" placed prominently on the front fenders. These actually provided some ventilation for the engine compartment. The cars were slightly smaller than the 1948 models, and were markedly more modern visually, especially with the car's large curved windshield.
Available Buick Roadmaster body styles included a four-door sedan and two-door sedanette, a two-door hardtop coupe, a four-door station wagon, and a convertible.
Today the most desirable of this generation of Buick Roadmaster is the convertible. Only 8,000 were produced, and the interiors are tonier than Roadmasters of other body styles, giving them both luxury and rarity.
