Beautifully Restored! Original 248ci I8 Engine, Dynaflow Automatic, Convertible!

1949 Buick Super Convertible

VIN: 15196520

The previous owner purchased this Buick in the mid 1990's in Connecticut. The owner fell in love with the car and had it shipped to Michigan. Once it arrived, the owner spent the coming years restoring it. You may recognize some similarities in this car from Rain Man, however, this is a slightly different model with various upgrades. This particular '49 Buick has a straight eight-cylinder 248ci engine paired to a Twin Turbo Dynaflow automatic transmission. Underneath the car you'll notice a highly detailed body and frame with a light protective undercoating and some new steel. Inside you'll notice a beautifully upholstered red interior with matching bench seats and a black convertible top. Take a look at over 100 HD photos and our in depth video to learn everything about this '49 Buick Super!
