German vintage car registration (H plates), new German inspection (TÜV). This is a classic street cruiser, technically and visually beautiful.
The Buick “Roadmaster” was built from 1953 to 1958 and modified every year. This copy was built in 1956 in California, and it has the typical Buick two-tone paint.
The “Roadmaster” was Buick’s top model. It has an automatic transmission, power steering, power windows and an air conditioning, which is quite remarkable for a car from the mid-1950s. The car is over 5.20 m long, it weighs more than 2 tons and, with its 5.2 litre engine that produces 256 hp, reaches a top speed of 170 km/h.

We have won this car for €37,000 at a Catawiki auction in 2017, we have transferred it to Germany (from the Netherlands) and invested in a German vintage car registration (H plate) and in some technical upgrades of the car (improved door locks, sealed power brakes, modified headlights according to German requirements, second wing mirror, etc.).
We are only selling this wonderful Buick, because we are looking for a smaller vintage car that my wife will more likely “dare” to drive...
