Here's a car that's about driving something unique and looking
great while doing it. This restored 1947 Buick Super Series 50
convertible is a shining example of a rare sight in the classic
The Lehigh Gray paint is an ideal setup. It gives you a very
classic look, but it's also part of a solid investment this car has
been given later in life. So this sunshine-friendly convertible
also has a modern clearcoat finish that looks great in the
sunlight. This gloss also seems to be the perfect way to showcase
the Buick's unique design. The classically long front sheetmetal
has terrific lines - especially the wave-form that starts at the
headlight and gracefully runs through the door. Like any good '40s
classic there's plenty of intricate chrome, and you can see more of
the car's quality in the way it shines. It allows you to really
appreciate all the design touches like toothy Buick Eight grille,
wraparound bumpers, sweeping profile trim, and so much more that
all have a mirror-like shine. And while you were looking at the
brightwork, you were probably admiring the two-piece wheel covers
and whitewalls. But don't forget to also pay attention to the steel
wheels. They were painted a deep red to coordinate with the trim on
the excellent convertible top. It's just another way to show off a
thoughtful presentation of a true classic.
If you like the red accenting on the exterior, then you'll love the
red interior. The supple leather upholstery is an update later in
life, and so it has a fresh appearance. It's nicely detailed with a
classic pattern and comfy tan cloth inserts. There's also newer
carpeting and good door panels to really make this classic a nice
place to spend some time. This wants to feel like a premium Buick,
and so you get features like power windows and a power convertible
top. They even integrated some great modern upgrades, like a full
Classic Instruments gauge package and upgraded heater. And while
the AM radio is still on display in the art deco dash, your real
driving music is coming from a JBL Bluetooth receiver connected to
a Rockford Fosgate speaker system.
Under the hood, the 248 cubic-inch "Fireball" straight-eight looks
amazing. Those long blocks are always a crowd pleaser, and this one
shows the same solid level of investment as the interior and
exterior. You'll also spot good fundamentals, like newer hoses,
belt, and a 12-volt upgrade with alternator and Optima battery in
the trunk. It fires up easily, and the well-maintained condition
means you really get to experience the smoothness on these in-line
motors. The three-on-the-tree manual transmission is easy to
operate and gives you that great vintage feeling. The undercarriage
photos tell you that the full investments extended to the
suspension, and so this Super floats down the road like a true
classic Buick should.
It's always great to see an investment in keeping a classic both
striking and a comfortable driver, too. You're looking at an
eye-catching convertible that doesn't come around very often. So
don't miss out on your chance, call today!
