This is a 1949 Buick Super and it rolled off the assembly line and into someone's driveway that year for about $2500. Powered by a "straight 8" connected to a Dynaflow automatic transmission, it was the epitome of what would be known as a "lead sled." Once it started sliding on a slick road, your efforts at guiding it were often futile.
I don't know the back story on this particular car except that it has been in its current location for a number of years and there is no indication it is going anywhere soon. Because it's so dry in this part of Utah, the oxidation process may take a while. Buick Super, R.I.P.(Rusting In Place).
