For Sale: 1940 Buick Super in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The extra-sleek two-tone, comfy classic interior, and awesomely long straight-eight motor all make this 1940 Buick Super Series 50 Sedan a classic that's wroth showing off every inch.


The two-tone burgundy and silver metallic are a striking color combination. There's a nice and even gloss over the paint so that the sunlight loves to highlight all the curves that make these pre-war cars so great. It's also thoughtfully applied so that the silver on the roof flows down the center of the hood and becomes the divider for the bright chrome grille. And speaking of chrome, you not only have the beautiful dual grilles, but also smooth rounded bumpers, full-length trim, and two-piece wheel covers. Basically, the Super was a premium Buick, and this example proudly upholds that tradition.


The interior has an almost time capsule kind of feel. The striped cloth on the seats has the ideal 1940s vibe, and it feels fresh and welcoming. Plush carpeting, a smooth dash, and clean door panels with detailed trim all come together to make this a premium sea of red. And as a full-size car, this really offers the kind of rear seat space that will have people inviting you to their weddings just to use your Buick. There's plenty of the classic cream-colored trim, and nowhere is that more noticeable than on the classic steering wheel and the column shifter for the three-speed manual transmission. And everything has a vintage cool, right down to the machine turned dash panel.


The butterfly hood can attract attention all on its own at the car shows, and when people get closer, they are treated to a special presentation in this Super. The 320 cubic-inch Dynaflash straight-eight looks amazing, especially with the self-promoting head cover. And everything from that air cleaner to the Stromberg carburetor look correct for the motor. So it's a real draw for classic Buick lovers. The motor fires to life with a smoothness you wouldn't expect from a pre-war machine, but that's the true secret of the straight-eight (and good maintenance.) On the road, this car also feels much more modern thanks to Buicks independent front end and coil spring rear. It's all part of a package that not only impresses you with how it looks, but also how comfortable authentic pre-WWII motoring can be...if you're in the right car.


This is a cared-for classic that has even had the same owner for the last 17 years. It's a stylish Buick done right, so you know you don't want to miss this deal. Call today!!!
