1949 Buick Dynaflow. with straight-8 power. model 76-C Roadmaster convertible a rare two owner survivor car! , code 31 Carlsbad black with a red leather interior and canvas top. Fit and finish are quite good for its age. There's lots of chrome on the 1948 Buicks. Roadmaster script, and DynaFlow badges on the deck lid identify it without question, and the famous Buick “bombsight” hood ornament proudly leads the way. The leather looks quite clean and aged well, with only the most minor signs of stretching on the driver's side. Matching carpets with red bindings give the floors and very luxurious feel and a finished look. Lights, heater, defroster, and other controls flank the radio speaker in the middle of the dash, with the Sonomatic AM radio just above. Perhaps the interior's biggest demerit is the horn button, which is original and slightly pitted. Power windows, front seat, and top are all hydraulically actuated and in fully operational condition, with the canvas top stowing itself in a few seconds behind the back seat. this has always been a very solid car from a warm climate (florida). Buick's big 320 cubic inch straight-8 was still among the most powerful engines in production in 1948, and its smooth torque is perhaps best showcased in a Roadmaster with Dynaflow. Finished in proper Buick Turquoise paint, the engine bay is nicely detailed. Stand on the accelerator pedal and the engine spins to life easily in traditional Buick fashion, idling with a muscular hum from the single exhaust. Unlike the conventional Hydra-Matic automatic transmission, the Dynaflow was torque-converter based, meaning there are no shifting gears, just a smooth flow of power. The chassis is solid and clean, although no longer detailed for show, but that only means that this car can be driven without worries. 15-inch steel wheels are trimmed correctly and fitted with reproduction radial tires. Call to today to own this original and rare Historical Vehicle! Brought to you from Duffy's Collectible Car's.
