Vehicle Story

This 1947 Buick Super Series 50 sedan was purchased by the seller in 2011 and subsequently restored, with accompanying receipts and invoices totaling more than $50,000 spent over two years, work which is documented in a spreadsheet. Powered by a 248ci Buick Fireball straight-eight backed by a 3-speed manual, highlights include a repaint and reupholstering of the interior, an engine rebuild, and an array of other mechanical and cosmetic work, and the seller says use over the preceding five years has been sparing. Finished in the factory-offered color combination of Brunswick Green over a two-tone Broadcloth interior, this 1947 Buick Super Series 50 sedan is offered on a clear title in the seller's name.

Buick Brunswick Green was a factory-offered color for the 1947 model year and the finish here is a respray performed by Rider Motorsport in June of 2012. Exterior appointments like the trim, grille, bumpers, headlight surrounds, and more was re-chromed during 2011. The stamped grille was new for 1947 and additional work performed during the seller's ownership includes the replacement of weatherstripping, the windshield, door felt, windshield wipers, various lights, the exhaust muffler, and more detailed in the accompanying paperwork and spreadsheet.

Wheels are a set of color-matched items with Buick covers which wear Firestone Deluxe Champion tires mounted by Les Schwab Tires in 2012.

The interior is upholstered in two-tone green Broadcloth fabric which lines the the front and rear bench seating. The material was replaced in December of 2011 and the headliner was replaced the same year. A Buick Sonomatic AM radio is mounted at the center of the instrument panel which is currently not working and is flanked by switchgear for lighting and climate control in addition to a set of ashtrays. Windows are operated by crank, and the carpet-lined trunk houses a full-size spare tire.

The 120-mph speedometer is surrounded by an ammeter and temperature gauge on the left and a fuel and oil pressure dial on the right. The speedometer was rebuilt in 2011 and the speedometer cable was replaced the following year. 

A Buick 248ci straight-eight provides power in the form of 110 horsepower at 3,600 rpm and 206 pound-feet of torque at 2,000, and is fueled by a single downdraft carburetor. The engine was rebuilt in 2012 is mated to a 3-speed sliding-shift manual transmission which was serviced and repaired in 2012. Other work performed during the seller's ownership tenure includes a carburetor service, replacement of the water pump, thermostat, and service for temperature gauge, replacement of an engine mount, rebuilding of a suspension damper, and replacement of other suspension components. The fuel pump and distributor were also replaced, among various other maintenance items which are documented in the captured spreadsheet.

Additional undercarriage photos can be found in the gallery.

This 1947 Buick Super Series 50 sedan is accompanied by a collection of invoices and receipts documenting the work performed during the seller's ownership, all of which is summarized in a spreadsheet.

@CFD – My only comment is that I got a great laugh out of all the effort made to black out the license plate on the video, but then the photos clearly show the license plate, not to mention other PII on the service records. Nice use of subtle HDR on the photos to make the paint pop though. ...

is that the only fault you can find? it seems you have gone the extra distance to find fault so thankyou for only finding small problems

@PUBS – Does Clock & radio works , How old r tyres and when did u replaced the battery ? ...

The clock and radio were repaired (2011/2012) and working when the main restoration was done but now The clock and ratio are not currently working. The battery was replaced last year. I’ve been driving the car so I don’t think there is a battery issue at this time. The tires were purchased in 2012

The engine is a straight eight. It was original to the car when we purchased it, and then it was rebuilt professionally. The car runs, thus the engine is in working condition. You can verify the car/engine is working by watching the video. And the status of the car for pick up is immediate. Once the auction is concluded the winner can arrange for pick up or delivery.
