1940 Buick Special Business Coupe

Engine: 240 Straight * (Fireball)
Transmission: 3 Speed Manual
Mileage: 6642 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this stunning 1940 Buick Special. Let’s start with the styling of this beauty. At first sight, you will notice the seductive, curvaceous lines that surround this Buick Special. The curves are matched well with an elongated nose creating an illusion of speed. The gorgeous “cranberry red” exterior on this Buick Special will captivate you and lure you in for a closer look. Chrome accents compliment the outer shell with a large, centerpiece chrome grille that screams Buick. The interior of the car drives home the name “Special.” The cranberry and peanut butter cream combination invites you in with such elegance. The interior is simplistic yet complex, heightening your senses with several different textures and touches. The seats are wrapped in soft vinyl with plush cloth inserts. Adding to the luxury essence is the beautifully marbled wood grain dashboard with the chrome bezel gauges and AM Radio face. If that isn’t enough to keep your eyes wondering, the light tan headliner and black framing on the window brings it all together and takes it to another level. Powering this excellent machine was Buick’s Straight-8 engine, otherwise known as the Fireball 8. The “Fireball 8” mustered up 120 hp in the 1940 40 series Buick Special. This may not sound impressive in comparison to today’s standards, but let’s put this into perspective. Thirty-seven years later, the 1967 Chevy Nova’s 283 V8 version was only rated at 195 horsepower, which was considered a “Muscle Car.” Although the horsepower rating isn’t frightening, this car has enough spunk to get up to speed and cruise along with traffic on the highway. Being an automatic transimission, makes it a great car for the entire family to enjoy and drive. If you’re searching for a classic that retains originality, but still unique enough to make people say, “what’s that” or “you don’t see one of those everyday”, then this is a car for you. Options include two spare tires, Vinyl and Cloth Interior, and Wide White Wall Tires. This 1940 Buick 40 Special is for sale in our Tampa Showroom and can be viewed in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. For additional information, please call our knowledgeable staff at (813)645-6200 or email us at Tampa@GatewayClassicCars.com.

1940 Buick Special Coupe

Engine: 248 ci
Transmission: 3 Speed Manual
Mileage: 46785 ( undocumented )

Our Atlanta Showroom is proud have this 1940 Buick Special Coupe for sale. The Buick Straight-eight engine (Fireball 8) was produced from 1931 to 1953 and sold in Buick automobiles, replacing the Buick Straight-6 engine across the board in all models in 1931. Like many American automobile makers, Buick adopted the straight-8 engine in 1931 as a more powerful alternative to the previous engines. However, unlike most other car makers at the time, Buick had been using a valve-in-head/OHV overhead valve design or I-head since its inception and continued this practice in their inline-8 designs. When introduced in 1940 the new Series 50 Super featured the cutting-edge "torpedo" C-body. When combined with a column mounted shift lever the cars offered true six passenger comfort, changes that had clearly been influenced by the Cadillac Sixty Special. The basic formula for the 1940 to 1952 Super was established by mating the Roadmaster's longer behind the engine cowl body to the Series 40 Special's smaller straight-eight engine and consequently shorter engine compartment. This led to an economical combination of voluminous passenger room and relatively good fuel economy. This 2 door model had a frame off restoration about 10 years ago. The car was completely disassembled stripped and repainted. The owner laid down 12k to paint this time capsule and put in all new rubber, glass, chrome wheels, new interior with high quality leather, and all new brakes. There was over $50,000 invested in the restoration. The Buick starts, runs, drives, and stops like it should.
