One of America’s favorite cars and the post-war dream car of many returning veterans, the Roadmaster was Buick’s biggest and fastest car. Its straight eight-cylinder overhead valve engine required five inches more wheelbase and longer front fenders and hood. Exterior trim was identical to the Super, except for the longer stainless moldings on the frontal sheet metal. Standard equipment included a three-speed manual transmission with steering column-mounted shift lever and rich interior fabrics. There were no optional gear boxes. Convenience options included a spotlight, Sonomatic radio, weather-warden heater/defroster, side view mirror, seat covers, auxiliary driving lights, spotlight and “Breeze Ease” draft deflectors.
Of the special interest was the novel “bombsight” hood ornament sported by Buick from this year through 1948. This little ornament was so widely accepted by the public that scores of accessory manufacturers began producing them. For the next decade these Buick bombsights could be seen decorating hoods and fenders of millions of vehicles of all sizes from Harley Davidson to Autocar Diesels.

In 1946, the Roadmaster Sedanette Model 76-S cost $2,014 and weighed 4,095 pounds. Buick built 8,226 for domestic sales and 66 for export. The Roadmaster series, built on a 129 inch wheelbase chassis, had an overhead valve, a cast iron block, five main bearings and mechanical valve lifters. Equipped with a Carter two barrel carburetor, the Roadmaster models also continued to use their pre-war blocks of 320 cubic inches. The engine was rated at 144 horsepower at 3600 RPM, which was less than the pre-war rating of 165 horsepower.

This car, in fact, carries its original upholstery, as well as muffler, tail pipe, glass and accessories. Only the paint, tires, chrome and battery are new. Mr. Erhardt Kraft of New Braunfels, Texas bought this car for his wife on December 24, 1945; however, Mrs. Kraft never learned to drive. The car was driven by her husband only on vacations and to church on Sundays and therefore has only 4,700 miles on the speedometer.

The vehicle was displayed in the Sterling McCall Museum in Round Top Texas and lastly the John O’Quinn Museum in Houston, Texas. To our knowledge the car has never left the state of Texas till Now!
