1941 Buick Super 4 Door Sedan
Comments: In August 1941 the original owner of my 1941 Buick Super four door sedan took the train from New York City where she lived to New Canaan Connecticut, walked across the street from the train station to the Buick dealership and purchased the car. She drove the Buick to her summer estate in Rowayton CT , used it for the month of August and returned it to the dealership where they stored the Buick for her until the next August when she returned from the winter home in New York City.
This continued from 1941 until the end of August 1976 when the dealership was sold and the dealer could no longer store the Buick for her.
A friend of mine from New Canaan knew about the car and called me to see if I was interested and gave me the owner’s telephone number. I called her that evening and told her I was interested in the car. She asked for my AACA membership number and said she would call back. When she returned my call she said that she would consider selling the can once we had an interview.
The interview took place at the Showboat Motor Inn in Greenwich CT and after four hours of questions and answers she consented to sell “Judy” (the car) providing I promise not to drive it in the winter or change the color.
At that time the Buick had 33, 000 miles on the odometer.
The paint is 75 to 80 percent original. I repainted the top and part of the passenger side front fender and door that had been dented.
The rest of the paint is original. The seats are still covered with dealer installed seat covers. The driver’s door upholstery is worn but the rest of the interior is still good.
A few years ago I installed a new set of Firestone wide whitewall tires. I believe that one of the original tires, the spare is still in the trunk.
The only rust through is at the bottom of the spare tire well in the trunk.
In 1976 you could purchase through NAPA spare engine parts so a new fuel pump, water pump and sundry other items are in the trunk including two new carbs.
The pictures enclosed were taken last fall prior to putting the Buick away for the winter.
I have faithfully kept my promise to the original owner.
