Outstanding Buicks at the Art Astor Collection Auction

Recommended Posts

Although RM Auctions held this event back in June 2008, I would like to share with you some pictures of three outstanding Buicks that were once part of the spectacular Art Astor Collection.

1947 Roadmaster Sedanette

1949 Roadmaster Riviera

1973 Riviera GS Stage 1

I was tempted to bid on a few of these, but my wife reminded me to retain my senses.

Enjoy!

Joe, these are beautiful cars and great photos.

The '73 Riviera would have made a wonderful companion piece to your '73 Regal!

Joe,

I attended the Astor Auction with some friends from L.A., and took loads of pictures that day, too.

So much eye candy crossing the block, it was hard to keep up!

I've misplaced my photos, so thanks for sharing these.

Yes, Brian, it would have. There would also have been some sibling rivalry in the garage too.

Tom, years ago I lost a roll of undeveloped film with a lot car pictures on it. So I know how it feels. Being sent to you via e-mail are pictures of cars at the Astor Auction which includes some Brand "X" ones too.

Hi Joe, just sent you a PM on your earlier PM to me. Now that I see the photo of the ASTOR 73 Riv GS and would love to have both exterior and interior photos.

Thanks,

Chuck Nixon

The styling of the '47 is really growing on me. There is a sedanette from around that time frame in these parts. I don't often get to see the owner, but he knows I have some interest should he ever decide to part with it. Of course, I'm doing such a good job of getting to my existing projects....
