Absolutely classic lines, suicide doors, and a Fireball 8 under the hood make this 1939 Buick 41 Special full-sized nostalgia on wheels.

General Motors had some of the best-looking bodies around in the late 1930s, and Buick was arguably the cream of the crop. This puts an impressive face forward for '39 with a redesigned front end that made room for a more artful grille design. And the torpedo-like front headlights melted into the fenders for a super-sleek look. It has a limo-like profile with the big rear window and the distinct trunk-back style. Plus, we know you love the look of the fenders that look as wind-swept as the headlights as they gently flow beyond the wheel wells. Even the classic details are nice, like the Buick Eight badging and the two-piece wheel trim with color-matched steel wheels and classic whitewall tires.

Suicide doors are always an attention-grabber, and so it's particularly nice to have them lining up so well on this example. And when you look inside, you'll see that there has been the right attention paid here to give you a true vintage style. The tan cloth on the seats is updated but feels period correct. So you get a vintage atmosphere with a fresh feeling. And this coordinate nicely with the door panels, carpeting, and headliner. The speedometer, dash, and especially the Buick Eight steering wheel have a terrific 1930s style. Even the trunk has a few nice details, including special pillows that come with the car. And because there really is a limo-like room in the back seat, it's easy to share this sedan with family and friends.

Just like the suicide doors, the butterfly hood Is another awesome piece of symmetry that people will love to check out. And when they get closer, they're going to marvel at the tidy look of Buick's famous Fireball 8. The 248 cubic-inch straight-eight always impresses with its long block, especially with the self-promoting head cover. It keeps everything honest to the 1930s-style, but the newer hoses, gaskets, and other details also tell you it has been properly maintained. It gives you good control on the road with tight steering and a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. This car also feels much more modern thanks to Buick's independent front end and coil spring rear. It's all part of a package that not only impresses you with how it looks, but also how comfortable authentic 1930s motoring can be.

This sedan has a long body, long motor, and is long on desire. So don't miss this vintage Buick. Call today!!!
