CLASSIC ORIGINAL, 248 CID, 3 SPEED, NEW TOP, CLEAN INT, VERY NICE PAINT, RARE!!
If you're looking for an extremely cool and rare convertible from the forties that has a demanding presence, this 1941 Buick Super Phaeton 51C is the one! Wearing an attractive black and red color combination like a tailored suit, this Buick proudly struts its handsome panels on the open road.
The smooth, bulging fenders on this Super Phaeton wears correct black paint that you can be sure will always have an appealing look. The car has undergone a frame-on restoration throughout the years and is the beneficiary of a new convertible top as recently as March 2014. Whether the top is up or down, the lines of this big Buick are simply stunning. Also recently replaced on the vehicle is the bright work. The chrome bumpers and grill create a nostalgic look, and all of the trim around the vehicle create nice details amongst the black paint. The front split window windshield is another reminder of that great 40s era style. And the Diamondback Classic Radials wrap beautiful red wheels, with chrome center caps, that complete the classic look.
Open any of the four doors on this convertible and you're welcomed to a very clean red leather interior. The vivid interior is correct to the car, and is even believed to be original! It's hard to imagine any other color combination that would look better than this. The front bench seat is so glossy that you would think it was painted with a clear coat. The rear bench seat produces the same shine and looks as if it belongs in an elegant living room. That engine turned dash is simply a piece of art. You can't glance inside this car and not make compliments. There is a clock mounted in front of the front passenger which sits next to a center mounted speaker, hooked to the AM radio. In front of the driver are beautifully designed gauges that show speed, water temperature, fuel level, and battery charge/discharge. Topped by a big ivory and chrome trimmed steering wheel, with a column shifter, this is classy interior to spend time in.
Powering this big beauty is a smooth-running 248 cubic inch inline 8 cylinder. Turn the ignition key and fire the compound carb fed engine to life, and you'll have to remind yourself the engine is even running, it is that quiet! Those carbs were recently rebuilt, the gas tank has been recently cleaned and the sending unit is new. The inline 8 sends power to a 3 speed manual transmission. Underneath, the suspension and brakes remain in the same form and geometry as they were when the car was built. The chassis is solid, and is ready to serve more time chauffeuring this car's owner to weekend getaways, local cruise-ins, and nearby car shows.
With less than 600 of these Super Phaeton 51C cars produced, and even fewer remaining in this kind of condition, we certainly don't expect this one to last long. If you're ready to be the envy of other enthusiast, now is your chance to own a unique and rare ride. Call today!
