When you're looking for a powerful custom that is truly unique, this 1940 Buick Special deserves a closer look. With a hint of a modern style, a full custom/comfy interior, and a serious V8 heart, this is everything great about being a true classic that's a touch different.

With sweeping fenders, full-length trim, long running boards, and the handsome trunk back design, this Buick shows off some great vintage style. But there's much more going on here. It signals it's a true custom with all the right well-integrated details. The classically attractive glossy black paint has a hint of metallic flake for added flair. The grille is color-matched to let the center trim have a unique and cool look that bisects the entire front end from the windshield all the way to the lowest point on this sedan. Custom bumperettes, wide dual exhaust tips, and polished 15-inch wheels with Buick center caps are all part of a thoughtfully done package that announces this steel-bodied Special is truly special.

You'll love opening up both sets of suicide doors whenever you show off this Buick. After all, not only does it have a very cool look, but also people will get a full view of the full custom interior. A rich tan always looks good against shiny black paint, and so the two-tone inside is pure elegance. Even the trunk uses the same material for a truly a thoughtful build. This takes advantage of the classic sedan's large interior space to provide plenty of comfort for everyone. You have modern conveniences, like an AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB input, R134a air conditioning (will need servicing), power windows, a custom center console, and cup holders for everyone. The front bucket seats power adjust to your ideal position. You'll love grabbing the Billet Specialties steering wheel mounted on a tilt column while gazing at the full set of VDO gauges.

Just like the suicide doors, the butterfly hood is always a crowd pleaser, too. And this draws people in to see a special powerhouse. The black inner walls of the engine bay make all the polished components of this V8 really radiate with power. And in fact, this is the 400 cubic-inch V8 that has been upgraded with performance pieces like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock EPS intake, and an HEI ignition. This is a fine cruising machine thanks to the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, upgraded independent front suspension, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide Cooper Cobra tires.

This is a Buick of true distinction. When a car combines, comfort, quality, and power like this, you know it won't stay long in our showroom. Call today!!!
