Description:

Buick entered the post-war market with an enormous pent-up demand that exceeded many of its rivals due to it being one of Americans favorite marques in the late ''30s and early ''40s. They were large and fast with sporty lines and symbolized America''s upward mobility that was part of GM''s product planing. Styling had not changed to any great degree for 1948 although there was an important new innovation, the Dynaflow automatic transmission. It would soon be included on all Roadmasters and a popular option for the other series. New styling appeared in 1949 and VentiPorts, often referred to as portholes, would soon become an identifying feature for Buick made their initial appearance on the front fenders.The 1949 Super Series 50 shared the new C-body with the Roadmaster but with a slightly shorter wheelbase. It featured the three chrome ventiports on each fender. It was powered by the in-line cast iron eight with a 248 cubic inch displacement that offered 110 horsepower.The 1950 Buick Super featured the new prominent "bucktooth" grill with an all bumper grill guard and more rounded styling. They had VentiPorts on each side of the hood with four for the Roadmaster and three for the Supers and Special. For 1950 the portholes or VentiPorts became flatter and were moved from the front fenders to the sides of the hood. Buick stayed with the tried and proven valve in head "Fireball" straight eight engine rather than following Cadillac and Oldsmobile to the short-stroke V-8. That would come in 1953. The model 56C convertible was equipped with leather power seats as well as power windows and top. Model year production was a record for Buick with 558,439 leaving the factory. Sales placed them fourth on the sales charts. This 1950 Buick Super Series 50 Convertible is powered by the "Valve in head, ahead in Value" 263 cubic inch straight eight cylinder engine that produces 124 horsepower. The engine had its origin in 1936 and would used by Buick for a few more years. This example is presented in an attractive yellow livery. It is mated up to the optional Dynaflow transmission and, of course, is distinguished by its three iconic chrome VentiPorts on each side of the hood. It carries an older restoration that is still very presentable with only minor imperfections noted. The interior has an expected patina and is in good order. The engine compartment is also good order with no fluid leaks or stains noted that would cause concern. Only 12,259 Buick Super convertibles were produced and they were priced at $2476 which was about $500 less that the Roadmaster convertible. According to Buick authorities few have survived. This very attractive example is powered by a 263 cubic inch in-line 8 cylinder engine that produces 124 horsepower. With leather seats, power windows and top it is an exceptional example of elegant early fifties Buick styling.
