“When better cars are built, Buick will build them” – this advertising slogan for one of America’s most well-known marques has always held true for well over a century. Buick cars are synonymous with excellent quality and has been the aspirational choice for millions of buyers. From the early 1930s, Buick cars were fitted with their famous Straight Eight engines, which were offered for almost 20 years in varying capacities.
1947 and 48 were probably Buick’s most successful years in India, and almost every Royal State had one in their garages. While the official ceremonial cars were high-end European marques, a reliable and comfortable American car was mostly used for regular duties. We have seen similar cars in the palace garages in Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Travancore and many more.
This 1947 Buick Super Eight has been painstakingly restored to Concours condition in every way. Immaculately finished in bright blue with complementing interiors, the car presents in perfect cosmetic condition.
All the chrome has been very professionally refinished to blemish-free condition, and wide whitewall tyres are fitted all around. The car has been meticulously mechanically overhauled, and is in excellent running condition, ready to be enjoyed for long-distance touring or leisurely Sunday drives around town.
