Specific: The Buick was used by General Ebbe Gørtz just after
WW II. It appears that the picture was taken during a visit at the Danish
Brigade in Germany. It´s probably a 1938 or 1939 model.
The origins of the Roadmaster name
date to 1936 when Buick added names to its entire model lineup to
celebrate the engineering improvements and design advancements over
their 1935 models. Buick's Series 40 was named the Special, the Series
60 was named the Century and the Series 90 — Buick's largest and most
luxurious vehicle — was named the Limited. The Series 50 was retired,
but new for the model year was the Series 80 Roadmaster. .
