SELLER REMARKS

Cherishing a classic car is about understanding and appreciating its history. That's why we love this 1938 Buick Special 40 Series Trunkback Sedan. Its terrific presentation today is part of a carful life that respected this pre-WWII treasure from day one. So while you might see a cool straight-eight motor and affordable price. just remember there's a lot more story to tell with this one.


The slick black paint that you see today is the result of a restoration that this sedan had. But that was at its half-way point about 38 years ago. Let that sink in for a moment. we won't pretend this classic is perfect. but this Buick looks better from a restoration in the '70s than many cars that were born then! So this level of quality should clue you in on the amount of care that has been a part of the sedan's whole life. But that's exactly what this kind of treatment this full-size classic absolutely deserves. Fitted to a 122-inch wheelbase. it's roomy and well-proportioned. and that long hood isn't just for style's sake. The smooth front end was an evolution of the 1937 redesign. with fewer grille bars and an overall less cluttered look. Flowing fenders are the epitome of '30s aerodynamic styling. and the swept-back brightwork along the panels really makes everything look quite sleek. Also. take some time to really enjoy the details on this one. like the driving lights. Buick 8 badging. and the pinstriping on the red wheels that goes so nicely with the iconic whitewalls.


When you get to the car show. we know you're going to love opening the suicide doors for everyone to have a peek inside. The handsome simulated mohair cloth interior is a big part of why the Special was so popular. Dressed like a far more expensive car. there's room for six and the wide bench seats are comfortable enough for all-day touring. Matching door panels and correct carpets give it a highly finished feeling inside. Plus. the woodgrained dash and garnish moldings have been nicely preserved. A big three-spoke wheel with Buick horn ring is the perfect helm for a car such as this. An AM radio was optional. so you'll love seeing this rare feature still light up today (currently display only. ) The optional heater is a nice feature to still enjoy on this early morning runs to the car events. Shifting was still on the floor in 1938. and it's the familiar setup so you'll feel at ease within moments of firing it up. There's also a sizable trunk out back. so don't be afraid to take home some awards.


The big reason why people will love seeing this car is under the hood. They'll marvel at the motor's spectacular presentation and its original-style condition and we even believe this is original to the car. The 248 cubic-inch "Dyna-Flash" straight-eight looks amazing. especially with the self-promoting head cover. The motor inhales though the proper Carter two-barrel carburetor. and you get full control over this long block motor thanks to the three-speed manual transmission (also believed to be original. ) The motor fires to life with a smoothness you wouldn't expect from a pre-war machine. but that's the true secret of the straight-eight. On the road. this car also feels much more modern thanks to Buicks 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 1930s motoring can be. if you're in the right car.


We have a lot of history on this classic (including maintenance records and title docs) so call for all the info. But don't take too long. because this Buick is too nice to last at this price. Call now!!
