Details

This 1940 Buick Special convertible is an excellent and unique example of a pre-WWII American automobile. A complete and thorough restoration was performed on this Buick in the early 2000s, and it has been properly cared for since. Under the hood, this convertible is powered by the 248 c.i., 8-cylinder Buick engine with a 3-speed transmission. When viewed in person, the detail and quality of this Buick truly shines. Pre-war convertibles in this condition are not easy to find. Sold with a title and current registration.

*Sale prices are inclusive of the buyers premium.
