1954 Buick Roadmaster (Model 76C): As a postwar United States entered a new era of prosperity, Americans flocked to GM’s Motorama and showrooms to see what was new. Buick was at the leading edge of design at the time and the division did not disappoint for the 1954 model year with the beautiful new Roadmaster Convertible. This was a new car that was offered as separate model from its sibling Skylark Convertible that debuted one year earlier. Engineered with a 322 CI OHV Fireball V-8 engine, which would power full-size Buicks from 1953 to 1970 and was better known as the “Nailhead,” the big convertible featured an innovative Dynaflow automatic transmission and power steering.
The beautiful example offered here today is one of only 3,305 produced in 1954. It underwent a professional rotisserie restoration to new condition which was completed in late January, 2014. With excellent care and minimal use, this Roadmaster has seen less than 90 miles of asphalt since completion and still shows extremely well. It features a numbers matching drivetrain and several power options including; power antenna, power seats, power top, and power windows. The original date-coded rims have also been restored and are included with this purchase. The complete list of options and equipment include; GM Buick 322ci Fireball V8, GM Twin Turbine Dynaflow Automatic Transmission, Dual Bullet Tail Tights, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Original AM Radio (working), Working gauges, Heater and Defroster, Tinted Glass, Car Cover, Convertible Boot, Owners Manual, Tire Tools, Full Spare, Deluxe True Spoke 15" Wheels, NEW Coker Classic Wide Whitewall Tires!
