1939 Buick Series #41 convertible Extensive RestorationRare1939 series 41 4 door Phaeton
This is a 1939 Buick Phaeton convertible, 4 door, with back seat and trunk. I have used it mainly for a few parades and picnics. I think it is an honest quality restoration, all 6 volt, 8 cylinder restored to original point of view. Only 724 of these built in that year, so somewhat rare model, the phaeton is slightly larger then standard convertible.
Dynaflash Valve-in-head straight-eight engine puts out 107 horsepower. This particular model was built with running boards…an option in 1939. Features in the 1939 Buick lineup include: hydraulic brakes, front and rear coil suspension, a column shifter, torque-tube drive, front sway stabilizer, knee action front suspension, 18 gallon gas tank, and an all silent three speed column shiftSynchro-Meshtransmission. All lights, switches and turn signals work and there are even small interior lights in the under the back of the front seat (for those seated in the rear).
This was a state of the art prestige automobile in 1939 and today it retains the original color, style and many features.
Super looking driver and fun car. The history of this car to best of my knowledge is as follows. Original California car (so no rust), had a frame off restoration and sold 10 years ago when it went to an important auction in Aug. 2008 RM Auburn Classic Car Auction inAuburn,Indiana.At that auction, it was purchased for $68,000 plus buyers premium. It was than sent to Kentucky, where the owner re-titled the car.
I bought it from his estate in 2011 and shipped it back to California, had it re-titled here and have used it intermittently, always stored in a garage since owning. Ipurchasedthe car with 4000 miles, it now has about 5000 miles on it, I can not be sure what originalmileageis on the car, I would assume, when it was restored, theodometerwas set back to 0000.

This car arrived in great condition no issuesI added the following:
The paint is excellent, there are two minor areas that show some loss of color:
This car is a real looker. A high end driver car, always garaged, ready to just get in, go and have fun. All accessories you see in car photos will accompany car to new owner. I am not a car dealer, this is my own private car. If you want additional photos, please e-mail me at email@example.com or call me at 510-501-4020. Collector Car 2017 price guide has a value of $49,000-$70,000 for this car in condition 2-1. I think this car would certainly fall into that condition. I have owned and restored about 10 pre-war cars over the past 30 years, mainly Buicks from 1936, 1937,1938, 1939 & 1941. I have sold about 6 cars on Ebay over the years and many high end guitars ($3500-$10,000 dollar range). I have a perfect Ebay rating for over 1350 transactions. Please e-mail with any questions you might have.
I recommend all buyers inspect the vehicles before purchase
