Please allow me to apologize here first, because I'm not going to be able to go over every aspect of this high-level restored 1938 Buick Special Convertible with the limited space I have here.
This Buick Special Convertible is among the finest you will ever see. The paint quality is exemplary, finished in factory original Corot Beige. Very high quality products were utilized throughout the process to give this Convertible a “better than factory” finish.
The Interior, also finished in it's factory original red leather was upholstered correctly as evidenced by the details such as stitching and beading.
Restorations of this quality require not only a lot of time and ambition, but also require countless hours of study to ascertain that correct components, materials, and proper techniques are applied consistently throughout.
It's the small things that will speak to a correct, thorough restoration. Items such as the dash, the instruments, the accessories, the wiring, and the routing of the wiring, precise fit and finish in all aspects just to name a few.
This 1938 Buick was factory equipped with a “Self-Shifting” automatic transmission. Nearly all of the cars that came with the “Semi-automatic” as it is also called, were replaced by Buick with a 3 speed manual transmission. This car still retains the original automatic, and that makes this car even more exclusive.
Take a look at the under carriage and you will see that this is no ordinary restoration. It was a frame-off, no expense spared, beautiful everywhere you look restoration.
All of this I mention might give you some idea of how beautiful this rolling piece of artwork is, and that's fine! However; one might wonder how well it start, runs, and drives. Well, if you can see and imagine how well this '38 Special looks, then you can possibly imagine how easily it starts, imagine how smooth that in-line 8 runs, and, not only how comfortable and smoothly this Buick drives down the road, but how impressive it would be to ease up onto the ramp at a top-level car show!
This 1938 Buick Convertible Coupe series 40 (46-C) is truly one of the finest of it's kind.
