The Devotion Collection features the cars truly closest to Art’s heart. These fourteen remaining offerings are vehicles that Art felt so passionately about that he kept them the closest to him, through the end of his life and include prime examples of Pre and Post War American Classics, American Luxury Cars and European Sports Cars.
The styling for the 1948 Buick Super convertible was a GM staple for over five years. The toothy grill was an identifying mark that continued well into the ’50s. This example has been well cared for and is offered with an accessory bumper guard, drivers spot light and radio. It is finished in an attractive shade of green with a black canvas top. The interior is in exceptional condition and the seats are tan fabric trimmed with green leather.
It is powered by an inline cast iron eight cylinder motor that produces 110 horsepower. It had a list price of $2518 and over 18,000 Super convertibles were produced for 1948. This Super Buick convertible starts easily and runs smoothly.
