1939 Buick Special 41C Convertible Phaeton Beautifully restored Black/Red Convertible Phaeton! One of only 724 domestic production cars! Wears body number 9 indicating a very early build! Everywhere you look is new and comes nicely optioned throughout! Great hard to find investment! Buick first used the Special name in 1936. the year that their numerical series numbers were replaced with actual names. The Special continued as Buick’s most popular option in 1939. with newly revised body work that was incredibly handsome. Despite this fact. the show stealer in 1939 was the Harley Earl-designed Y-Job. arguably the industry’s first concept car and one that broadcasted the future design language of Buick. This car helped to boost sales in 1939 to 231. 19 units. of which most were Series 40 Special cars. Of these. the four-door Convertible Phaeton proved to be the rarest body style in 1939 and only 830 were built. of which 724 were for domestic and 106 were exported. Today their trunk-back design combined with the split windshield. and one of the greatest front ends of all time. has made these not only rare but very collectible! We are very excited to offer this 1939 Buick Special 41C Convertible Phaeton! This Flint. Michigan-built car is finished in its factory data tag correct color of 530 – Black over Red leather upholstery. This 41C is powered by its original. sequence-correct Dynaflash 248ci Inline 8 making 107 horsepower and mated to a standard 3-Speed Handi-Shift column-mount manual transmission and to the ground via a 3. 9:1 rear end. Options on the car include a full leather interior. dual side-mount spares with hard covers. dual side-view mirrors. polished rear fender rock guards. front and rear bumper guards. exhaust turndown. windshield defrost. shift lever turn signals and more! The car rides on 16” red steel wheels with “Buick” hubcaps. trim rings and 6. 50-16 Firestone Deluxe Champion gum-dipped wide whitewall tires! Upon closer inspection. one will quickly notice that nearly every component of the car. top to bottom. has been brought to look like new. The restoration. completed 2014. was done to include paint. chrome. leather. walnut-look dash. door sills. convertible top and frame. all pot metal and more! The car appears arguably better than it ever could have dreamed in 1939. with tight panel gaps and exceptionally slick black paint. In addition. the black exterior/red interior is a classic combination that has proven to be timeless in large convertibles. Underneath. almost all suspension. steering and brake components have been swapped for new. We are making no claims to the mileage but this is a true investment grade Buick and one that certainly has a commanding presence. In addition. this car is body number nine of 830 total built for the year (including 106 for export). Interestingly. the car still wears the previous year’s 40C designation as a result of its early production. We would invite any interested parties to call with additional questions!
