Extraordinary Survivor ! | Older renovation in the late 80’s and well maintained since. | Very solid and clean!

Featured here is one of the best 1938 Buick Specials we’ve offered for some time. The 1938 Trunkback Sedans are arguably the most desirable of the late 1930’s Specials, due to their interiors, suicide doors, hydraulic brakes, and elegant rear quarters. 100% rust free.  This Sedan shows excellent paint and chrome that maintains a deep shine. Interior upholstery is in authentic mohair wool, which is plush and free from unsightly rips and stains. All instrumentation is clear and functions reliably. The doors and trunk open easily and latch tight. Engine has been faithfully maintained with excellent detail. A smooth 248 cu. In., Dynaflash, 110 HP straight eight, 3-speed transmission with shifter on the floor, banjo steering wheel, bumper guards, grill guard, trunk guard, drives and stops great, a very rare opportunity to own a time capsule, a truly incredible survivor! Undercarriage is very clean. We’re not likely to see another Series 40 that’s this well restored and maintained any time soon, so don’t miss the opportunity to make it yours today! Take it to a show and bring home some trophies.

All fluids (engine, transmission, differential, brakes, etc.) have just been inspected, serviced with new gaskets and fluids.
