Barnfind - Restoration Project

Vehicle Registration – OYT 47, Chassis Number – 4959889
In 1948 the fourth generation ‘Roadmaster’ Convertible was the Buick Motor Company’s top of the range. Powered by a 5.2 litre Fireball 18, it was 18 feet long and weighed 2,100kg. The car was styled by legendary Harley Earl and it was obvious from his re-introduction of chrome and the return to ‘flamboyant’ swoopy lines that the austerity of World War two was becoming a memory.
This 1948 Roadmaster is fitted with the much hyped Dynaflow transmission and has been in the previous owners possession since 1974, the accompanying V5 informs us that it was imported into the UK from Belgium on the 21st June 1954. As can be seen, it’s in classic ‘barn find’ condition and requires total restoration. Roadmaster Convertibles from the late forties/early fifties are now seriously ‘cool’. Consequently a number of these, comparatively uncomplicated cars have been, or are being restored and there is now very good availability of parts and panels, which is good news as some of the interior and most of the chrome appears to be missing.

The restoration is one for the brave, however, when finished this stylish American film star would be welcome anywhere.

This lot can be viewed and picked up in Northampton, UK.

This is a used vehicle. It is highly advisable to view the vehicle before bidding, to avoid disappointment afterwards. To arrange a viewing appointment or for more info, please contact Catawiki. Offers are excluding transport and export, unless otherwise indicated.
