Description:

1940 Buick Roadmaster

Big lovely car – quite rare to find a Roadmaster in this condition. All original except for one re-paint, 25 years ago. Paint shows age but still very presentable.

In 1940 the Series 80 was renamed Limited. The Roadmaster name was transferred to the new Series 70, which was introduced at the same time as a brand new Series 50 Super. The Roadmaster featured a cutting-edge "torpedo" C-body. The new C-body that the 1940 Buick Roadmaster shared with the Super, the Cadillac Series 62, the Oldsmobile Series 90, and the Pontiac Torpedo featured shoulder and hip room that was over 5" wider, the elimination of running boards and exterior styling that was streamlined and 2-3" lower. When combined with a column mounted shift lever the cars offered true six passenger comfort. These changes had clearly been influenced by the Cadillac Sixty Special.

Buyer to pay $199 documentation fee. A $9.25 License fee charged for out-of-State buyer ($29.95 License fee for Nevada) No sales tax for out-of-State and 8.15% for Nevada buyer.
