1942 Buick Sedanette Custom

This 1942 Buick Super coupe is truly a special machine. It was part of the very limited model year that was cut short by WWII, nd today it has been turned into an all-American hot rod with every convenience you could ever want.This is the perfect car to have turned into a distinctive custom coupe. Not only do you get to be different from all your friends with Chevy and Mercury hot rods, ut you also have an even better story to tell. The low, ide grille and sweepingly long fenders seem like hallmarks of post-war Buick design, ut it was really introduced for the rare 1942 model year. Of course, his one has the factory lines completely customized. This Buick is effortlessly cool with its chopped roof, owered stance, nd amazing tri-coat pearl burgundy paint. But those are the big items. Take your time to look over the pictures and see how this one even gets the little things right, ike the shaved door handles and Frenched Cadillac taillights. The whole build is not overly done in chrome, ossibly to pay tribute to the shortages of WWII, r maybe just to make the grille, eadlights and Boyd wheels standout even more. And boy do we love it!Inside is a custom gray cloth interior that will leave you wanting for nothing. The front buckets are from a late-model car so there's no problem spending all-day behind the wheel. The same can be said for the cold-blowing air conditioning. This one is loaded with plenty of modern-style features, ncluding power windows, ower locks, ower steering, nd an AM/FM stereo with CD changer. The driver gets a LeCarra sports steering wheel, rapped in matching leather, ounted on a tilt column. Beyond that is custom dashboard with a full set of VDO classic-style gauges.Hot rods are about showing off and going fast, nd the engine bay on this Buick does both perfectly. Remember Buick Supers from this era had their hoods pivot and raise on both the passenger's, nd driver's side, hich is always something that draws attention at car shows. Once the crowds start to gather, hey'll marvel at the motor that's awash in a sea of matching burgundy paint and chrome. When it comes time to leave the show, veryone will hear rumble of your dual exhaust. This is courtesy of the big 400 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from a Pontiac. It's been enhanced with an Edelbrock performance carburetor and intake to make around 300 hp. All this power reliably gets to the ground thanks to a 3-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to a 10-bolt rear end with a limited slip differential. The final step in this powerful performance package is an upgraded coilover rear suspension, nd wide 235/70R15 Firestone rear tires. Of course, ith all this added ability power brakes with discs up front are a must.This Buick Super is not for the timid. It's a standout hot rod with a story to tell, nd everyone looking at it will be amazed...trust us, hats how it goes in our showroom since it arrived. Call now!!
