Buick’s Roadmaster has been manufactured for as many as 8 generations, from the early ’30s to the mid ’90s, and our particular car belongs to the golden mean, i.e. the fourth generation (1942–1948). Buick as a car manufacturer is the oldest among those still active in the US market, so it’s no wonder it’s a model synonymous with American comfort and engine power. This is a real, comfortable cruiser, designed for those who want to enjoy the ride. Wider, lower and longer than previous models, it provided a lot more space, which at the same time required high performance, so this car included a huge 5.2l engine with eight cylinders and a two-speed automatic transmission. The combination of size and strength guarantees a unique driving experience.
Interestingly, after the World War II, the design of this car was not changed, while other manufacturers did. There was no need for that because it was flawless. The vertical grille and characteristic curved line launched by this model have become trademarks of Buick vehicles.
