 Vehicle Description
Cherishing a classic car is about understanding and appreciating its history. Thats why we love this 1940 Buick Series 80 Limited Touring Sedan. It wears its decades with pride in a fantastically original-style presentation. So you get a true pre-WWII treasure with a straight-eight motor and a premium attitude that was instilled from day / br / Buick people instantly recognize this as something special. The 80-series Limited sedans were true Cadillac rivals, and so they were a rare sight when new. And it only gets more exceptional 80 years later. The black paint is what you want on a formal body like this. Its part of an older respray, which in turn, is part of a long history of proper care. It has aged gracefully, just like this Buick, so theres a nice gloss to the finish. It highlights the curves of the sedan, and thats exactly what makes the 1940 model so special. Buick redesigned the line so that it had a wider chrome grille, long parking lights, and headlights integrated into the fenders. This new styling was combined with classic formal elements like the full-length trim, whitewall tires, and dual spare wheels integrated into the front fenders. And of course, the Buick Eight badge in the back meant you needed a long hood up front leading the way. Its a distinct and beautiful style that was cut short by WWII, and so this one to cherish. br / br / When you get to the car show, we know youre going to love opening the suicide doors for everyone to have a peek inside. The handsome cloth interior was a true luxury of 1940, and this has been refreshed to look vintage but offer true comfort. The door panels and headliner coordinate while also showing off the artful real wood trim. These could be put into limousine service, and the rear seat has ample space, a fold-down center armrest, individual ash trays, and a foot rest. But vintage motoring today is all about the classic driving experience. You get a big three-spoke wheel with Buick horn ring. There are replacement units available, but theres just something electric about feeling the generations who came before you every time you grip the wheel. And the smooth action of the column-shifted three-speed transmission is pure classic fun. Plus, the art deco dash looks nice and everything you want is working, right down to the full gauge / br / Not only do you get to open the suicide doors at the shows, but the butterfly hood is always an attention-grabber, too. Theyll marvel at the motors presentation and its original-style condition - and we even believe this is original to the car. The 320 cubic-inch Dyna-Flash straight-eight looks amazing, especially with the self-promoting head cover. The motor fires to life with a smoothness you wouldnt expect from a pre-war machine, but thats the true secret of the straight-eight (and good maintenance.) On the road, this car also feels much more modern thanks to Buicks independent front end and coil spring rear. Its all part of a package that not only impresses you with how it looks, but also how comfortable authentic pre-WWII motoring can be...if youre in the right / br / The sale comes complete with a service manual.
