  1. I don’t think this is a Roadmaster, as it doesn’t have 4 exhaust ports, just 3. It’s probably either a Special or a Super. I know these things because I’m old.

    1. That’s exactly what I saw at first glance. I thought it was a Buick Special because of the 3 port holes instead of the 4 on the Roadmaster. My dad had a ’48 Roadmaster we went on vacation from El Paso, Tx to Indianapolis, In in 1955. I was nine.

  2. It would look better if it had not been lowered and have those awful wheels replaced with original wheels and hub caps LOW RIDERS SUCK

    Yes, don’t like it lowered either…it had a nice height from the factory…the engineers knew what they were doing when they designed and built the cars. I don’t mind customizing as long as it doesn’t change the engineering….if they wanted a different car they should build their own from the ground up…

  4. My Dad had a ‘46 Buick Roadmaster convertible. First one West if the Mississippi after the war. He and his brothers were POW’s and got it when they came back. I had it in high school. So fun! Straight 8 and 3 on the tree…It fit about 8 of us!💖 We both cried when we sold it…😢

  5. This car has air-ride, this is not the drive height, it’s adjustable and probably has at least three preset height settings. Rides like a dream.
