For sale is a 1949 Buick Super Eight Dynaflow that is 98% complete and ready for restoration. The car is in great shape for restoring. Body is complete without any major damage due to rust. The engine on this car is the ORIGINAL inline eight engine. I belive its one of the first inline eight engines to come out in the market for a passenger vehicle. It is said to be the sports car of the 50's. The engine is in good condition and belive it or not..IT STILL RUNS. It can use a rebuilt however. The car turns on at the first crank, no pumping the gas or anything. I drove the car a block down the street and it runs, I would recommend rebuilding the brake system though. The interior is complete with all the guages and knobs ready restore. On the outside the body is n great condition with minor rust on the lower panels. All window trim and body trim is in tact, only thing I found missing on the car are 1. rear wheel skirts 2. 1 hubcap
I will be posting this car on EBAY so you can bid on it. Email me if you have any questions.

The Super Series 50 was powered by an eight-cylinder engine and was distinguished by its three chrome ventiports on the sides of the hood. The term 'Super' was placed on the front fenders. The Supers were the same size as the Specials with their 121.5 inch wheelbase, unless the Super Series 50 LWB version was ordered. This extended the wheelbase by four inches and provided extra interior room for its passengers.
The three-speed manual gearbox was standard but a Dynaflow transmission could be ordered for an additional cost.
