Absolutely classic lines, suicide doors, and a straight-eight under
the hood make this 1940 Buick 40 full-sized nostalgia on wheels. Of
course, you already just love this for its sleek black style.
The 1940s was not a full decade for passenger car production, but
they seemed to really pack in plenty of style to make up for the
less time. The 1940 car was restyled to better integrate the
headlights and widen the chrome grille, and so it puts a more
impressive face forward. It has a limo-like profile with the big
rear side windows and the distinct trunk-back style. Plus, we know
you love the look of the fenders that look as wind-swept as they
gently flow beyond the wheel wells. Even the classic details are
nice, like the Buick Eight badging and the two-piece wheel trim
with bright red steel wheels and classic whitewall tires. But the
most impressive part may just be the paint. This black was applied
within the last few years to give this classic a piano-like luster
and make the fender feel as smooth as they look.
Suicide doors are always an attention-grabber, and so it's
particularly nice to have them operating so swiftly on this
example. And when you look inside, you'll see that there has been
the right attention and investment here to give you a true vintage
style. This car has been under the same owner for a decade, and he
took his time to restore it correctly. So while the tan on the
seats, door panels, headliner, and trunk are all updated, nothing
ever feels out of place on a pre-war classic. It means you get a
vintage atmosphere with a fresh feeling. And there's just something
extra inviting about plush carpeting. The speedometer, dash, and
especially the Buick steering wheel have a terrific 1940s style.
Even the AM radio is still working. And because there really is a
limo-like room in the back seat, it's easy to share this sedan with
family and friends.
With a car that has a piano black look, it's awesome to have a
piano hinge-style hood. And since this gives you such a clear view
of the engine bay, this was made sure to be extra tidy and
detailed. Buick's straight-eight always impresses with its long
block, and this one loves to have the correct callouts and decals.
Plus, there have been the right investments in keeping it a hardy
runner. This includes newer pieces like the carburetor, belts, and
exhaust. It gives you good control on the road with direct steering
and a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. This car also
feels much more modern thanks to Buick's 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
1940s motoring can be.
Complete with build receipts, this restored sedan has a long body,
long motor, and it's long on desire. So don't miss this vintage
Buick. Call today!!!
