1940 Buick Super 8 coupe convertible SUPER 8
Starts, ccelerates, amp; shifts quietly. Still starts with gas pedal push & has the original old fashioned 6volt battery. Starting is so easy the 6 volts doesn't seem to strain.
Body & Paint: solid body metals with very little repair, f any. Splash fender areas & wells are rustfree. The paint is original. This Buick is for the owner that appreciates & sees patina as a plus with maybe a repaint in the future. Driver's roll up window glass has a crack, ut does not flex, s not unpleasing, till water tight, nbsp;winds flawlessly, o visual blocks, o no need to change any time soon. Glass is available on Ebay. All other glass is perfect. Windows roll up/down great. All chromes (door window surround frames, tcetera) are Nice. Doors close nicely with hardly any effort & have good allignments with NO drops. And, hey lock. No rust bottoms or skins.
Interior & top: ALL recently NEW. Looks to have been a power top, ut long time ago (switch under dash not hooked up; hand operation is the NOW method). Top clamps nicely with very little effort.
Engine: the straight eight overhead original motor. Smooth operation, o oil smoke, ot overheat & no valve tapping
Stability: Stays fairly true on road with minimal steering wheel play (acceptable & better than most I've known). Had recent new brake work (stop on a dime thing)........................................
Transmission: manual column shift seems to be flawless. No clutch slippage, oise, r kinking.
Gauges:That are working-gas, harge, il pressure, emperature. Not work: speedometer, ear directional lights, orn (horn relay is unplugged & beeps when that terminal is connected). Heater is hooked up. Not sure about blower motor(checking/troubleshooting).
The manual open Air intake vent does open from inside car (for the air conditioning of 1940). The emergency brake does work.
Comes with two sets of tires; original rims/beauty rings & the spoke rims/knock offs as seen on the car. An original 1940 era radiois also included with many small "over the years" parts. And, ual "spotlights". ******Also included: NEW SET OF REPRODUCTION SKIRTS in primer paint (not on car in pictures, f course; I purchased them on Ebay). It has the NEW top boot, ut also has the original boot (kept for posterity). These cars Never go out of style. Call for a BUICK experience & possible price negotiation speculation, nbsp; 904-881-3495.
I have many more pictures of various parts,etc. I can remove items from the trunk if further examination is needed.
