Some of the chrome works need to be re chromed to lift the car further. A-49 with the new two-piece split windscreen and Buicks now so classic chromed engine ports on the sides. The car needs a service and inspection, last inspected in 2000.

Facts about the model

In 1948 a series script appeared on the front fenders and the white Tenelite steering wheel that had been used previously was traded in for a black one, in order match the change from a two-tone wood grain instrument panel to a two-tone gray instrument panel, with silver tone instruments. A new optional custom trim option was offered, consisting of cloth upholstery with leather bolsters with the robe cord cover and lower door panels trimmed in leatherette. Convertibles acquired power windows, seat and top as standard equipment. But the biggest advancement was the introduction of Dyna flow, the first passenger car torque converter transmission. Optional on Road master in its first year, it was so popular that by the following it was standard equipment. Overall sales were just under 80,000 in both 1947 and 1948, over four times greater than in any prewar year.
