1948 Buick Super Convertible

What we have here is 1948 Buick Super Convertible. This is the latest trend, old-time retro looks with modern drivetrains and very sophisticated brakes, steering, suspension systems. The owner Jonathan Ward says it’s fun to blow away modern cars on the road, especially when no one can guess what’s under the hood. From the outside there is almost nothing changed, the idea was to keep it as original as possible. But what’s inside of this old Buick, well that’ a different story.
