The 1941 Super convertible coupe offered here is an extremely fine presentation of a highly desirable and rare production Buick. For 1941, Buick introduced twin carburetion, new bodies, and a two-way hood that could be opened from either side. Buick’s 248-cu. in. “Fireball” straight eight-cylinder engine was fitted with dome-shaped pistons and combustion chambers the same year.

This exceptional example of the rare convertible coupe, model 56C, was beautifully and meticulously restored in 2007 by noted Buick expert Doug Seybold with additional interior work completed by Jenkins Restorations. Special care was taken to maintain as many original parts where possible. It is presented in its original shade of Chenanga Gray Poly. The Buick Super's paintwork provides a superb contrast to its lavish and spotless red interior and black power convertible top. With exceptional amounts of chrome, wide whitewall tires, and highly detailed throughout, the car makes an elegant presentation for anyone lucky enough to admire this car in person.

The Buick Super won the coveted AACA First Senior award in 2007. More recently it was chosen, from a field of more than 2,500 entries, to be one of 30 finalists in the 2009 New York Times Classic Car Contest. Driven sparingly, with just 300 miles added to the odometer since the restoration, the car remains in exceptional condition throughout.

Few Buick Super convertible coupes survive today—particularly in such fine condition as this fashionable example. Simply put, this may be the finest 1941 Buick Super available.
