Starting with 1936, the Buick Special Series 40 model range
represented the marque's entry level full-size automobile. The '36
was a very successful year for Buick and also marked the first time
of using names rather than the simple serial numbers which had been
in use before. The first Specials rode on a 118 in (3.0 m)
wheelbase, but for the next model year this was increased to 122 in
(3.10 m) as all Buicks grew for that year. The eight cylinder
engine was also new, and was now of 248 cu in (4.1 L) rather than
233 cu in (3.8 L).4 #fn4 The Special (and all other Buicks as well)
underwent a full restyling for 1939, with a more enclosed nose and
a wider grille. The wheelbase was also two inches shorter.
For 1940, there was the usual restyle and the wheelbase increased
by an inch. This was also the only model year that a four-door
convertible Special ("Sport Phaeton") was offered, although only
552 were built. Prices started at US$795 ($14,827 in 2020 dollars )
for the Business Coupe to US$925 ($17,251 in 2020 dollars 3 #fn3)
for either the 4-door Touring Sedan or 2-door Convertible.
For 1941 the bodywork was again all new, with the front fenders now
very closely integrated into the cars overall design. The Estate
Wagon migrated from being a Super into the Special lineup. A
fastback was offered in Century and 40 Special trim as a four-door
touring sedan and two-door business coupe and the 46S sedanette.
Also new was the 40-A series (the regular Special now being the
40-B), a version on a three inches shorter wheelbase which shared
its body with the 1941 Oldsmobile Series 70. These two series, with
a restyle reminiscent of the 1939 Y-Job, continued into the
abbreviated 1942 model year. Production ended on 4 February
