1950 Buick Roadmaster: Ported Classic

1950 Buick Roadmaster

The Buick Roadmaster is one of the most iconic of classic automobiles, with an instantly-recognizable shape and the potential to pack some real power. Unfortunately, this 1950 example here on craigslist for $5,000 in Plano, Texas is going to need quite a bit of work to live up to its past anytime soon. All the hallmarks of a Roadmaster are there, with the famous multi-toothed grill and the 4 VentiPorts dotting the hood. You may have to do some digging to find that hood and the fenders, as the seller removed them since the photos were taken in preparation to swap in a Cadillac front clip. While I love a good project, it’s a shame to see this Roadmaster fallen so far from grace – these cars were loaded with special features when new, including upgraded interiors and the famed straight-eight engine. Other optional luxuries were available, but they may be lost to time by now if this car has been sitting and pulled apart for the occasional weekend project. If you’ve been hankering to add a Roadmaster to your stable, would you take this one on?

    That looks like it could be a great hot rod but that is a long process and a lot of money to do it right. good luck to whoever take it on.

    I understand it is rare but I can’t help but think this price is a little too high
