To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Open Roads, Fall event, 11 - 20 November 2020. Estimate:$35,000 - $45,000 One of just 1,040 produced; very rare todayAmong the most prestigious and desirable Buicks of its yearVery impressive styling on the 131-in.-wheelbase Roadmaster chassisWell-presented older restoration, ideal for touring enjoymentClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic Representing one of Buicks most elite models for 1937, the Roadmaster was mounted on a 131-inch-wheelbase chassis and offered in an exclusive roster of just three body styles: a trunk-back five-passenger sedan, a formal sedan intended for use with a chauffeur, and a convertible phaeton. All were powered by a straight-eight engine with overhead valves, in the time-honored Buick tradition, displacing 320.2 cubic inches and producing 130 horsepower with great smoothness. They were fine-driving automobiles and remarkably well-engineered, giving them an unusual modern road feel for the time.The convertible phaeton was a rarity even when new, as just 1,040 were produced. It is estimated that fewer than thirty remain extant today, among them this handsome specimen. Restored some years ago, it is finished in a rich burgundy maroon with tan leather upholstery and matching tan cloth top, and presents very well throughout. The interior, in particular, is in fine condition, while the paint and top exhibit only light signs of age and use, appropriate for a fabulous highway automobile. Further the car is equipped with the desirable dual side-mounted spares, as well as rear fender skirts that accentuate the aerodynamic lines of its body.This would be a wonderful car for participating in the Antique Automobile Club of America and Classic Car Club of Americas many events in the coming show season. It reflects the best of Buick engineering, design, and craftsmanship in every nut and bolt.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/0620.
