1950 Buick Sales Brochure
All you could ask of a truly fine automobile you get without stint in this suave and strapping beauty - the 1950 Buick Roadmaster Touring Sedan - Model 71. Impressive bearing is part of this great Buick. And spirited distinction in styling. And sheer luxury, roominess and interior finish. And even in the field of fine performance its 152-hp Fireball engine makes you master of the road in soaring brilliance and supple action -in the liquid smoothness of Roadmaster's Dynaflow mobility, and the soft gentleness of its all-coil-spring ride. There is still another quality here quickly appreciated by the discerning fine-car purchaser - solid merit. For in the field of top-level motorcars, Roadmaster stands unsurpassed in value - sells at the lowest price per pound of any automobile in its class. And men who know cars will tell you there is no truer indication of sound merit than that.
