Buick Roadmaster Convertible 76 (1947)

Buick Roadmaster Convertible 76 (1947) was the most elegant and prestigious car made by the American motor company.

It is one of the masterpieces of the Art and Color Studio, the GM style centre built by Harley Earl in 1928.

The Buick 47 convertible was first seen at the Oldtimer Festival of Antwerp, Belgium. Alfred H. Heineken, the grandson of the founder of the well-known European brewing company, bought it. After his death, it entered the Bulgari collection.


Special thanks to Sergio Gaudai (Nb Center Roma) and Kris Flickinger (NB Center Allentown) for the technical and mechanical information useful for the historical reconstruction of the model.

Restored for the NB Center, it was exhibited at the National Automobile Museum of Turin at the 2017 exhibition “CROSSROADS. Italy-USA Intersections, from After the War to the Postwar Economic Boom”.
