Top of the line Buick for '55--the Series 70 Roadmaster. This 4-door sedan was sold new in Sioux Falls, South Dakota Roadmaster and it had a new respray in original Dover White & Gulf Turquoise colors (Paint Codes BTB), along with a professional interior upgrade in 2015 with new seats in the original black brocade fabric and white vinyl trim. The tires are bias ply and in fair condition--and will need to be replaced soon. The wipers do not work currently (we have sourced a replacement wiper motor that can be installed). There is a taillight bulb that needs to be replaced and there is a small crack in the passenger side window, but that is not an inspection item. The "Roadmaster" script trim piece has been added to trunk. Odometer 113000. Powered by V8 5277 cc | 322.0 cu in. | 5.3 L. 236 BHP (173.696 KW) @ 4600 RPM. One of just 31,000 Roadmaster sedans Buick produced in '55. General Motors advertised the car in '55: "Horsepower in ROADMASTER has been increased to 236 with a compression ratio of 9.0 to 1. Performance has been increased with the acceleration magic of Variable Pitch Dynaflow. Gasoline economy is notably improved. Now add to this -- the unsurpassed levelness of the ROADMASTER ride -- regal new interiors with richly brocaded fabrics and pastel-hued leathers -- the ease of handling of Buick Safety Power Steering -- the many other choice features that are yours as standard equipment -- and you know why ROADMASTER is the most rewarding investment your fine-car dollars can make in 1955."
