EXTRA EXTRA read all about it! Check out this 1940 Buick Special Convertible. Extremely rare Sport Phaeton model 41-C, with only 542 produced in 1940. It's a similar model to the car used in the movie "Casablanca." This is a solid Texas car that has only received restoration as needed and maintained over the years. It features a Dynaflash Inline 8-cylinder engine and a 3-speed manual transmission. It has a tan canvas convertible top. Interior features include original turned-metal dashboard with woodgrain top and restored trunk using correct materials. The completely new wiring utilizes reproduction cloth-bound wire that's like the original. This stunning and rare model Buick touring car also has accessory fog lamps.
