For Sale: 1941 Buick Series 40 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1941 Buick Special Sedanet is a terrific custom build that gives you a great cruiser style on the outside, a loaded interior, an adjustable air ride suspension underneath, and a big caddy V8 under the hood. It makes for the kind of full custom that few expected, but everyone will never forget.


The Sedanet is a special coupe with fastback lines, and the trim tag even tells us this was the more powerful special edition. So it just seems like the ideal car to get the full custom cruiser treatment. The uniqueness starts with the silver metallic paint. It has the bright glow in the sunshine that instantly announces this is an upgraded classic. This does a great job of showing off the Buick's curves without turning this 80+ year-old classic into a trailer queen. The brightwork is looking nice and bright so that it can showcase the unique 1941 grille, wraparound chrome bumpers, distinct headlight trim, and full-length side trim. It all looks quite nice thanks to sheet metal that shows proper care. You have all the best classic cruiser pieces, like a windshield sunshade, a spotlight for display, fender guides up front, fender skirts in the rear, and wire wheels with whitewall tires. The two-tone blue pinstripes take this into the post-war era of custom street machine cool. And the clear headlights with LED halos are a pure modern upgrade. So this is a special coupe that showcases decades of custom car progress.


At first glance, the interior keeps a classic style. But then you start to see the suede-like fabric inserts on the seats, matching door panels, plush carpet, and glossy dash that all show newer investments that make this much more comfortable. And speaking of comfy, you have nice modern features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry, an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow ideally cold again.) The art deco dash trim and beautiful gauges remind you that this is a true classic, and the custom steering wheel on a polished tilt column reminds you this is a true cruiser.


The Buick Eight badge up front was a sign that this has a serious motor in the 1940s, and that spirit is only upgraded today. After all, this stylish Special was really reaching into Cadillac territory, and so this one now even has Cadillac power. This is the mighty 500 cubic-inch V8, which was their largest displacement big block. So it makes plenty of coupe-moving torque, especially when it inhales with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and exhales through a glasspack dual exhaust. There are also nice supporting components like an HEI distributor and an electric fan. As you look underneath the car, the suspension keeps much of its classic style, which reminds you that Buick made quite a comfortable car even before WWII. And this is enhanced by the air ride suspension that lets you dial-in your comfort and stance. Add in power steering, power brakes, and a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, and this Buick lives up to its custom cruiser style.


You're looking at a rare Buick upgraded for added style, comfort, and power. It's a true total package classic that you need to get in your garage. Call today!!!
