1940 40 Buick Eight 8 Cylinder * Model 41 * Survivor * Rat Rod * Hot Rod
This car was stored in a dry garage for 30+ years. We installed a new battery, primed the carburetor, hit the starter, and it fired right up. Other than that, we did not do anything mechanically or cosmetically to the car from the time of purchase.
After taking it on a mile test drive, the motor was whisper quiet, and the transmission shifted perfectly with no clutch chatter. The brakes work, which should be serviced if you plan on driving it. The previous owner replaced all four shocks with tube shocks but left the lever shocks installed. The speedometer is not operational, and the spare tire is missing.
As you can see the interior is mostly original but quite tattered.
The paint appears to be original. We can’t find where any paint or body work has been done. Other than surface rust, it appears to be a rust-free car and close to being dent-free.
Underneath, we don’t see any problems with the floor or the frame.
This Buick is an excellent original example of an 81-year-old car.
