Lot 239: Buick Series 80 Roadmaster Cabriolet

Techno Classica, Coys (2 April 2011)

Buicks founder, David Dunbar Buick, was building gasoline engines by 1899, and his engineer, Walter L. Marr, built the first automobile to be called a Buick between 1899 and 1900. Buick recovered from near-bankruptcy in 1904 to become the No.1 producer of automobiles in 1908 --surpassing the combined production of Ford and Cadillac, its closest competitors. Buick became the financial pillar on which General Motors, today the world's largest car producer, was created. The post-war period was a great era for Buick in styling, engineering and sales.

The excellent pre war Roadmaster we have the pleasure to offer here, comes out of a magnificent major collection. Its condition is fabulous, ready to drive and enjoy in the coming spring and summer months. Elegantly finished in dark brown with a tan interior and hood, this is a quick and comfortable pre - war American classic with many art deco features, giving it a stunning and elegant appearance. Surely a successful entrant to the many concours d`elegance events all over Europe, where this stunning Buick could be a serious contender. Coming with German historic road registration and original owner's manual, the car represents good value for stylish pre war motoring.
