Vintage style, upgraded V8 power and modern A/C comfort is all wrapped in a beautifully coordinated package. This 1955 Buick Roadmaster is ready to hit the road in comfort.
Buick just seemed to have the best sense of premium style in the 1950s, and they were hardly subtle about it. The range-topping Roadmaster did it the best with more fender portholes and those Dagmars that were truly sex appeal on wheels. It only gets better in the Riviera specification. It starts with the Cadet Blue paint that's sandwiched in between the two areas of white. This is a very intricate two-tone layout, so we are happy to see someone properly investing in a high quality respray that took the time to get it right. And as a Buick fan, we know you love how the trim is used to create an elegant profile. It forms a border for the colors and also makes the dip in the door line mimic the slope of the roof. Plus, as a true '50s machine, the tailfins are intricate to the design, and it's even properly finished off with whitewalls and wire wheels.
When you open the door, the way these heavy steel pieces still hold true to the body tells you there have been quality investments here. And as you look inside, it only gets better. The interior keeps the same blue and white attitude as the exterior to give you a fantastically coordinated total package. The seating is the perfect mix easy care white vinyl with comfortable blue cloth inserts for where you sit. And with the amount of room in this luxury sedan, it's the perfect classic to enjoy with family and friends. Plus, upgrades like an AM/FM stereo with digital tuner and R134a air conditioning means everyone gets to stay comfortable. But even with these upgrades, this one never loses its vintage atmosphere. The Buick crest steering wheel is thin and has that kind of instant sense of grip that we seemed to have lost over the years. And Buick's design team really hit a home run with the entire dash. The appearance combines sporting elements like machined panels with elegant dials for a distinctively upscale appearance that still feels premium today.
Under the hood, the classic finned valve covers with coordinating blue inserts certainly looks vintage. But as you dig deeper, it becomes clear this Buick has been upgraded to small block power. That means this trusty 350 cubic-inch V8 can easily accept upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and upgraded pulleys. This total package really gives the dual exhaust some extra bass. But more than just nice power and sound, this was upgraded to be a great all-around driver. That's why you have power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. There's even a Wizard aluminum radiator to keep this classic running cool if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.
This is the luxury classic that has been upgraded for shine, comfort, and all-around drivability. You don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
