Attention fans of large, pre-war American Cars! Gateway Classic
Cars of Kansas City has an awesome example just in..............a
1939 Buick Model 41 Special! From 1936 to 1958, Buick's Special
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 Special continued to also
be known as the 40-series, however. 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). 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. This dark blue with tan interior 1939 Buick 41
Special is a glorious sight to behold! The interior has been
brought back to original specifications and the exterior received a
fenders-off restoration. Powered by a inline 8 engine backed by a
manual transmission, this beauty is ready to roll! From parades to
fun-filled Summer drives through the countryside with the family.
If you are looking to turn heads and raise eyebrows at area car
shows this Summer, chances are that you will be the only 1939 Buick
Model 41 Special in the show! To find out more information on this
stunner, call our Buick hotline at (913) 815-1340, or to view this
beauty in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures @
