Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

When was the last time you saw a 1939 Buick 46S Sports Coupe? Not only is this the special kind of body you rarely see at the car shows, but also its exactly how you want a classic of this caliber expertly restored inside & out and a straight-eight under the hood. The slick burgundy paint that you see today is the result of a quality restoration. It was a three-year undertaking that was completed in 1993. If youre going to take that much time and put less than 5,000 miles on this coupe since completing it, then you know this is has been treated as a special machine that was only used for special occasions. But thats exactly what this kind of treatment this classic absolutely deserves. The 39 Buicks were a step ahead in the styling evolution. This one commands attention with a handsome dual grille that coordinates nicely with the bumper shape, flowing fenders, and handsome trim line that highlights the tapered body. And we especially love how the traditional torpedo-like headlight pods and side lights are now streamlined into the wide fenders a unique look only on the 39s. Also, take some time to really enjoy the details on this one, like the Buick 8 badging and wide whitewalls. And speaking of the tires, did you notice the gray pinstriping in the color-matched wheels? Yes, the subtle details of the pinstriping is also a preview of the interior color. You get the classic wide bench seat finished in a comfortable cloth. But once again, its the details youll really love everything from the intricate stitching of the door panels to the rear jump seats. The simulated woodgrain dash looks impressive, especially with the matching trim all around the windows. The artful and big three-spoke wheel with Buick center cap is the perfect helm for a car such as this. And you get to gaze over a crisp and bright art deco masterpiece that showcases everything from the classic speedometer to the classic AM radio thats still on display. Theres also a sizable trunk out back, so dont be afraid to take home some awards. Youll love parking this one at car shows and opening up both sides of the butterfly hood. And whats inside is also quite impressive. You can tell they took care in the restoration to make the 248 cubic-inch Dyna-Flash straight-eight look exceptionally correct. The motor inhales though the proper Carter carburetor, and you get full control over this long block thanks to the three-speed manual transmission. The motor fires to life with a smoothness you wouldnt expect from a pre-war machine, but thats the true secret of the straight-eight. On the road, this car also feels much more modern thanks to Buicks independent front end and coil spring rear. Its all part of a package that not only impresses you with how it looks, but also how comfortable authentic 1930s motoring can be...if youre in the right car. Complete with a restoration photo book and the owners manual, youre looking at a rare treat that was lovingly restored to keep it a true classic. Dont miss you chance at this time machine Buick, call today!
