The Buick Super Eight was a full-sized automobile produced from the 1940s through to 1958, excluding the WWII period. The Super Eights mechanics were just as impressive as its design and it received 150 bhp from a dynflash inline eight-cylinder engine with DynaFlow automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs and live rear axel with coil springs and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.
Following the end of World War II, Buick offered the widest selection of models in its history to date, and the sleek, luxurious Super Eight Cabriolet continued to occupy the peak of the entire product range. These very desirable cars received enthusiastic reviews from motoring enthusiasts and increased showroom traffic at Buick dealerships.
On offer today is a gorgeous open-air example of one of the most beautiful Buick designs. The wonderful Honolulu Blue coachwork suits the cars design and proportions admirably and makes an effective and attractive contrast with the luxurious elegance of the interior. The upholstery is trimmed with matching Vibrant Blue cloth, to a standard that one would imagine would be suitable for royalty.
This Super Eight Cabriolet has spent a lot of its life in a museum collection, and the odometer displays a remarkably low 6,200 miles! Having undergone an impressive cosmetic restoration and presented in delightful condition, with both provenance and rarity; this must be an almost unique opportunity for connoisseurs of post-war Americana.
