Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to offer this
wonderful 1940 Buick Super 8 convertible for sale on consignment
right now in our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. 1940
was the first year for these mesmerizing full-size Buicks, which
were produced on GM's C Body platform (shared with Cadillac Series
62 and Oldsmobile 90). This really is a stunning vehicle and
although cosmetic repairs have been done, it retains a lot of value
by remaining mostly original. Painted in "Casino Beige", your
friends will think you've hit the jackpot when they see you rolling
in this drop top Super 8. The fender skirts, split windshield and
Firestone white wall tires are a sign of the times but this car
wouldn't be the same without them. This Buick Super 8's convertible
top has new fabric and comes with a matching Tan boot cover for a
finishing touch. Under the dual side opening hood is Buick's 248
"Fireball" inline 8-cylinder motor that purrs into life every time
you push the start button. Yes, this 1940 vehicle has a "push to
start" that replaces the traditional floor starter and almost
passes off as a factory original item! A 3-speed "three on the
tree" manual transmission with the shifter located on the column is
authentic and has the benefit of adding room inside this '40 Buick.
It wouldn't be right to overlook some of the quirky interior
features of this luxo-barge either; luxurious Red leather bench
seats front and rear, the steering wheel looks like it came out of
a sailing boat and is covered in chrome with a horn ring, the
equally bright chrome dash with stock gauges/instruments and the
large clock on the passenger side with functioning AM radio.
Perhaps the most notable time capsule feature is the ashtray and
lighter built into the dash and the two additional ashtrays for
back seat passengers.. oh, how times have changed! This vehicle has
been in the same family for many years and has been loved and taken
care of. Tomorrow this piece of history could be in your garage!

ears on this collectable 1940 Buick Super 8 convertible for you if
