Buick Roadmaster Sedan
Following the end of World War II, Buick offered the widest selection of models in its history to date, and the sleek, luxurious Roadmaster continued to occupy the peak of the entire product range. Based on the new General Motors C-body for 1949, the new Roadmaster rode on a long 126-inch wheelbase and was offered in a range of five body styles, including sedan, fastback sedanette, coupe, station wagon, and convertible models. These very desirable cars received rave reviews from auto enthusiasts and increased showroom traffic at Buick dealerships.
