ODOMETER
1949 Buick Super

In 1949, this was Buick’s glamorous way to go places – with its top up or down, it was one of the sharpest cars on any boulevard. Motoring thrills are gathered by its behavior on the road, wide seating and ease of having standard equipment such as the automatically-operated top, front seat and windows continue to enthuse drivers who have the pleasure of driving this stylish offering. The Series 50, Model 56C Buick Super Convertible is recognized as one of the most famous and important Buicks ever. The 1949 Buicks were the first new Buicks of the post-World War II era. Their sleek new lines were created under the direction of GM chief designer Harley Earl. The new VentiPorts (commonly referred to as portholes) on the 1949 model’s front fenders became a Buick trademark that is still seen on the latest Buicks. Other distinctive features are found with the dominant front grille and associated exterior bright trim elements, hood ornament and rear fender skirts. This rare Buick is driven by a Fireball 248-cid, 115-hp straight eight-cylinder engine that is paired with a three-speed manual transmission. The dual fender-mounted air horns are believed to be factory originals, as are the spotlights and other rare accessories. The owner reports that the 15,825 miles on the odometer is an increase from the 15,802 when previously sold, but the title is exempt because of the age. This seldom seen model is mostly original and exhibits the highest quality throughout. The 1949 Super Convertible was sporty and prestigious and enjoyed amazing popularity—more than 22,000 were sold worldwide. Unbelievably, in a 1979 collector’s guide to prestigious American convertibles, less than 30 had been accounted for from this sum. Even if more have since been uncovered, it aligns with being a quite uncommon vehicle.
