Meticulous engine and trunk compartments - restored factory gauges and lights - Original restored interior/upholstery is exceptional and dash and steering nice.  Recent check-up/tune up.  New Battery.  Power windows all go up and down. Overall, this Buick runs and drives excellent and is very easy to drive, especially with the power steering and brakes. Very striking colors with excellent chrome and stainless.

Independent front suspension, coil springs front and rear, and rear sway control by radius makes this ride feel exactly as Buick's Ads states “You are “Up in the Clouds”.  Buick known to accelerate 0-60 mph in 11.2 sec, 0-100 km/h in 11.8 sec and quarter mile time is 18.9 sec.  However, this car was not driven more than 55 mph and has been kept stored under cover.

There are some touch up areas on the paint finish, and minor flaws present due to transport, but the car still displays very well. The door jams and hood interior was not repainted to demonstrate original colors.  Transmission Gasket does have a minor fluid seep.  

Excel schedule provided on request to demonstrate work performed over the years.  2007 Buick Article of Car, extra parts, original Buick Shop manuals, and brochure go with this car!  The smooth-running, easy to drive Buick Roadmaster – a definite trophy winner at most local cars shows!

Your Buick looks very nice.  Four-door hardtops aren't

appreciated as they should be, and are scarce today

in excellent condition.


You will need to indicate your location, since this forum

reaches all over North America, Europe, Eurasia, and beyond.

Also, a phone number is very helpful, so people can reach you.

Make your car easier to sell!  Some newcomers post ads but

never check back to the forum to respond to inquiries.


All the best to you with your beautiful Roadmaster.
