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 248 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!!!
