1941 Buick Roadmaster Convertible Phaeton The last production Buick convertible sedan was built in 1941. Out of the 315 built, only 17 are known to exist today. They were powered by a 320 cu. Inch “fireball” straight engine developing 170 hp. It is interesting to note the carburetion was “compound” as Buick stated in their advertising. That is, the front carburetor was the standard and the rear carburetor engaged when the gas pedal was pressed hard for more power. A smooth 3 speed manual transmission was also supplied on the Buic. This Buick is the top of the line Roadmaster model and had been totally restored several years ago. Options include an original AM radio, fog lights, fender skirts and a top boot. From the correct metallic gray paint to the beautiful red leather to the immaculate engine bay, black canvas top, and restored undercarriage, this is a great car to drive and show with pride. The engine is smooth and quiet as one would expect. Priced below just the cost of restoration at $75,000.
