Details

This 1938 Buick model 87 Roadmaster Sport Sedan, # 13262188, is a rare 133” wheel base fastback model. According to the owner only 466 fastback models were built in 1938 and only 4 survive today, with this being an excellent example. The car has mostly original, very presentable paint and a very nice original interior that shows little wear. The original 320 cubic inch straight eight has been professionally rebuilt and does not have a problem with ethanol gas. The brakes, front end and running gear are all in good working order and the tires are new Coker’s in the correct size. Driven regularly on A.A.C.A tours, this reliability and performance of this car is second to none. Always garaged and well maintained, you could show this car in the H.P.O.F. class.
