Classic Car Overview

This was my father's car who passed away a few months ago and I am assisting my mother with the sale.  The car seems to be in good condition, starts right up, and runs quite well.  The only issue we are aware of is that the brakes need to be pumped to build up pressure.  We consider this a major safety issue but have not looked into it.  We are not aware of any other issues and do not have any maintenance records.  We will answer any questions to the best of our ability. Thanks

The 1939 Buick Special is a large, pre-war American classic car.  From 1936 to 1958, Buicks Special model range represented the marques entry level full-size automobile. The 36 was a very successful year for Buick and also marked the first time of using names rather than the simple serial numbers which had been in use before. The Special continued to also be known as the 40-series, however. The first Specials rode on a 118 in (3.0 m) wheelbase, but for the next model year this was increased to 122 in (3.10 m) as all Buicks grew for that year. The eight-cylinder engine was also new and was now of 248 cu in (4.1 L) rather than 233 cu in (3.8 L). The Special (and all other Buicks as well) underwent a full restyling for 1939, with a more enclosed nose and a wider grille. The wheelbase was also two inches shorter. Powered by a inline 8 engine backed by a manual transmission, this beauty is ready to roll! From parades to fun-filled Summer drives through the countryside with the family. If you are looking to turn heads and raise eyebrows at area car shows this Summer, chances are that you will be the only 1939 Buick Special in the show!
