This gorgeous numbers matching Buick is the perfect car to load up the family and cruise! Repainted in a two-tone Maroon and Blue in 2017, this car turns heads where ever you go. The same year this Buick rolled off the assembly line, US president Harry Truman sets up the Central Intelligence Agency and fuel was only .15 cents a gallon. This is the second generation of the Buick Super. The Super had new front fender trim featuring parallel chrome strips. Also featured for 1942 was a handsome new grille with a lower outline and thin vertical strips. A feature shared with other Buicks was a new interior air intake positioned near the front center grille that eliminated the old cowl-level ventilator. The number of body styles was reduced to three with the elimination of the one year only Business coupe.
After the government prohibited the use of chrome on January 1, 1942 many body styles were dropped and most trim was now painted. Cast iron pistons were used in the 248 CID (4.1 L) Fireball I8 engine. The last of the 1942 Buicks were completed on February 4, 1942. Only 33,034 Supers were built in the abbreviated model year.
In 1946 Buick once again combined the large Series 70 Roadmaster body with the economical Series 40 Special powerplant to create the Series 50 Super line. Basic styling was continued from 1942 now sedans had the front fender sweep across the doors to the rear fenders as did the Sedanet and convertible styles. A stamped grille with vertical bars dominated the frontal ensemble. Single stainless body trim lines began on the front fenders and ended at the rear edge of the standard rear wheelhouse shields. Standard equipment included an automatic choke, clock, turn signals and wood grained instrument panels. Exterior series identification was found on the crossbar between the bumper guards front and rear. Cloisonné emblems carried the Super emblem. Compound Carburetion was eliminated and the compression ratio was reduced to 6.30:1. The number of body styles increased to four with the return of the Estate wagon after a six year absence. A total of 119,334 units were sold. The front suspension was independent with coil springs. 76.98% of Buick sales this year were Supers.
