When introduced in 1940 the new Series 50 Super featured the cutting-edge "torpedo" C-body. The new C-body that the 1940 Buick Super shared with the Series 70 Roadmaster, the Cadillac Series 62, the Oldsmobile Series 90, and the Pontiac Torpedo featured shoulder and hip room that was over 5" wider, the elimination of running boards and exterior styling that was streamlined and 2-3" lower. When combined with a column mounted shift lever the cars offered true six passenger comfort, changes that had clearly been influenced by the Cadillac Sixty Special. The basic formula for the 1940 to 1952 Super was established by mating the Roadmaster's longer behind the engine cowl body to the Series 40 Special's smaller straight-eight engine (and consequently shorter engine compartment). This led to an economical combination of voluminous passenger room and relatively good fuel economy.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this unique 1941 Buick Super Sedan for your consideration. This vehicle comes with all the personality you could hope for from the top to the bottom, sits as a good driving, good running and good looking car! With the 248 cubic inch engine size this Fireball power-plant is in good running order and shifts smoothly through its 3-speed sliding shift manual transmission giving this vehicle all the possibilities in the world. The starting procedure is very unique as it is installed through its gas pedal, a simple turn of the key to the on position, a step on the gas pedal and this cool ride fires up like a top! The previous owner did a full restore starting in December of 1993 to August 1995 when it was completed. He has provided us with a very large amount of documentation throughout the entire restore. The interior is in very nice shape and the exterior paint looks very good. This is a great find for those who love these older era Buicks!
