The 1939 Buick presents very well. The Acadia Dark Grey paint looks great and has a nice shine to it. It has a touch of brown and metallic in the paint and looks great out in the sunlight. There are 2 blemishes on the finish, one is small scratch on the top of the front passenger door and the second is some checking in the paint just below the fuel filler door (pictured). The body appears to be very solid and there does not seem to be any bondo or filler. The panels are all very straight and rust free. The doors close solidly and there isn''t any play in the hinges. The trim throughout the vehicle is in nice shape and does not have any dents. The chrome bumpers are in excellent shape and have a nice shine to them. The door handles, trunk lid hinges and front hood ornament are in good shape but do show some very slight signs of age but are only visible upon close inspection. The running boards are straight and solid. The window glass throughout the vehicle is clear and free of chips and cracks. The left rear brake light lens does have a crack across it but the rest of the lenses are in good shape including those on the Unity fog lamps. The Coker Classic whitewall tires measure 6.00R16 and are virtually brand new with the mold nipples still on them. The tires were produced the 40th week of 2009. The steel rims are painted to match the vehicle and also have chrome beauty rings. The key hole cover on the passenger side is missing.


The interior is in near perfect condition. From my research the interior looks to be accurate and is the Tan Novelty Bedford Cord. The seats are very clean and comfortable and do not have any rips or tears. The door panels are in excellent shape and have a nice fit. The headliner looks great and does not have any sag in it. The carpets are clean and fit nicely. The only part of the interior that will need restoration is going to be the steering wheel. It does have some cracks and splits in the plastic but horn rind is complete.


The Buicks straight 8 fires up easily and runs well. The engine seems to run strong and the transmission shifts through the gears as it should. This vehicle has not been driven much in the past year and does smoke ever so slightly at startup but seems to clear up after a couple of minutes. The vehicle did stumble a bit under heavy acceleration so the carburetor may need a bit of an adjustment or cleaning and may be the cause of the smoke. The vehicle drives down the road nicely and is smooth and comfortably. The brakes seem to work as they should. The high and low beam lights work as they should as do the brake and tail lights. This vehicle is equipped with factory turn signals also that do work correctly. The front fender mounted marker lights do not seem to be operational and the fog lights do not want to come on either, although the switch for the fog lights seems to be getting power as the switch does illuminate when turned on. All of the gauges in the instrument cluster appear to be working correctly. All of the windows in the vehicle operate smoothly as do the vent wing windows and the rear slider windows.


This 1939 Buick was well cared for and loved. It is in excellent overall condition and is also a great driver. This vehicle needs very little and would make a great impression at a show or any event you take it to.
