The Roadmaster name first appeared in Buick's model line-up when the company released its 1936 collection. At the time, they renovated their range by improving the engineering and design aspects of their 1935 models, renaming the Series 40 to Special, Century to the Series 60 and Series 90 to Limited. The Series 80 was then labeled as the Roadmaster.
In between 1946 to 1957, the Roadmaster held the reputation of being Buick's top of the line model and came in various shapes such as sedan, coupe, convertible, station wagon and even a hardtop coupe, referred to as "Riviera."
In 1953, Buick had their last wood-bodied station wagon with the Roadmaster, Model 79-R, priced at US$4,031 and ranked second in price only to their Skylark. A total of 670 of these historic wagons were released that year.
After 1959, Buick's model range underwent a major transformation and the Roadmaster name was replaced by Electra.
