Classic Car Overview

Complete photos, videos, and inspection report available at www.ClassicPromenade.com. This is a sympathetically preserved 1948 Buick Roadmaster Sedanet (Style No: 4707) which has been owned by our collector client for the past 10 years. The owner is a longtime collector in North Hollywood and has enjoyed an interesting collection of significant cars. This Roadmaster was built at Buicks production facility in Southgate, CA (C-1084) and originally sold through a dealer in Long Beach, CA. In fact, this is 115,118th Roadmaster built. This Roadmaster is also believed to have only one previous registered owner. The current owner purchased this car about 10 years ago through McCormicks Auction in Palm Springs, CA. It had been sold by our friend Steve Snyder of Vault Cars in Orange County, CA. This Roadmaster has remained in an underground parking garage in Pasadena, CA ever since. This Buick has an older repaint in an attractive two tone combination of Cumulus Grey (28) complimented by Nickel Grey (23). The roof still shows quite well with good shine, luster, and depth. There are some signs of cracking on the fenders, as well as very small paint chips throughout the entire body. The chrome work is overall in good to very good condition, with lots of shine and minimal imperfections. The cloisonne on the front and rear emblems are presentable, but showing age. Likewise, the whitewall tires are showing signs of yellowing and we recommend the next owner replace them. The interior is a mix of some very well preserved original features and some long ago new items. Overall, there are many areas of the interior that are showing significant wear and/or age. The attractive and stain-free Grey Heather Bedford Cord seats (Trim 76) are very nice and comfortable. We did not notice any signs of significant wear or warping. The dash, headliner, steering wheel, and gauges are overall good to very good; they present well and are free of any major blemishes. The carpeting, weather stripping, door jambs, and shelf behind the rear seats, however, do require attention. These components are either worn, stained, or otherwise in less than stellar condition. However, it does not greatly detract from the appeal of this Roadmaster. Mechanically, this Buick is in good running condition. We were unable to perform a test drive on the car, other than moving it around the parking garage. Our impressions were fine. The car started right up, ran and idled smoothly, the transmission shifted into gear with ease, and the brakes felt solid. The owner has also informed us that the car does drive well, but that the clutch has a tendency to make a noise when coasting in first gear. This Buick has been reasonably well cared for. The fuel lines have been coated to prevent vapor locking. The lighting systems and horn function properly. The owner informed us that speedometer and odometer are not working. The actual millage is unknown, but it is believed to be around 165,000 miles. We
