Be an excellent driver and buy the 1949 Buick Roadmaster from Rain Man

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Rain Man 1949 Buick Roadmaster

Heritage Auctions has gotten its hands on an interesting piece of automotive cinema history. Bidders can now vie for the 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertible from the 1988 film Rain Man featuring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman. The straight-eight powered convertible is one of two used in filming and features an upgraded rear suspension to cope with the weight of a cameraman and camera equipment. The seller has included several bits of documentation showing where the big Buick was rented by MGM for filming, including insurance receipts and loan agreements.

As it sits, the Roadmaster has an opening bid of $40,000 and is located in Sacramento, California, though we suspect the seller may have a much higher reserve. The auction won’t reveal that figure until December 7. You can find out more and see additional photography by heading over to the Heritage Auctions site.
