Buick Eight Sedan 1950

Priced at US$1909 for the four-door model, Buick was poised to give Plymouth a serious jolt in terms of sales back in 1949. Portholes, the VentiPorts, are seen on the front fenders: three for Supers and Specials. Windshields for the Super and Roadsters were one-piece units. Buick’s long-stroke, valve-in-head “Fireball” straight-eights still had  of appeal to its patrons as against the short-stroke, V-8 ones of Oldsmobile and Cadillac. Spotted near Adliya Post Office was this model.
