Classic Car Overview

1 of 235 Convertible Phaetons produced in 1940
CCCA Full Classic Eligible
Comprehensive Restoration Completed in 2004
This classic Buick is highly original and one that would be fantastic for touring. In addition, this beautify is also CCCA recognized as a Full Classic! An excellent classic car investment piece for any serious collector!
Finished in factory code correct 544- Royal Maroon exterior over a matching Maroon leathette interior with a Tan Stayfast cloth convertible top accented by maroon piping. Under the hood resides a highly detailed 320ci Dynaflash Inline 8 engine mated to the 3-speed column-shift transmission.Features include full dash instrumentation, turn signals, AM radio with cowl-mounted antenna, vacuum wipers, dual outside mirrors, fog lights with amber lenses, rear interior courtesy lamps, and chrome Buick hubcaps and trim rings. Accessories include front & rear seatbelts, locking gas door, 235/75R15 radial whitewall tires by Diamond Back, and front bumper mini flag holder.
This particular Roadmaster Convertible Phaeton is a testament to how well these Buicks were built and how well a car can survive, given the proper care. A very well documented example from new, it sold originally in southern Virginia and stayed with the original owner well into the 1960s.
It remained in that region when a Richmond, Virginia collector, Jim Wamsley, was able to buy it in 1974 from a dealer using it for business advertising. ...NOTES
