1948 Buick Roadmaster

Manufacturer: Buick Division of General Motors

Buick Roadmasters were built between 1936 and 1958 and again from 1991 to 1996. In 1948, the Roadmaster was Buick's top of the line model and was available in sedan, coupe, convertible and station wagon bodystyles.

The first Post-War Buicks of 1946, 1947, and 1948 were in large part based on the designs of the 1942 Buicks. The 1947s received a new "wing-top" grille with a lower look and a new, more elaborate hood emblem. The 48 Roadmaster was given a new chrome fender nameplate. The big news for 1948 was Buick's Dynaflow fully automatic transmission arriving as a $244 option available only on the Roadmaster.
