Today’s car is 1941 Buick Super Eight Convertible done in Sequoia Cream is owned by Dave Beugen. This 2 year body style was in production between the years of 1940 and 1941. The 50-percent expansion of Buick’s 1940 model line was all part of Buick General Manager Harlow Curtice’s campaign to broaden the division’s customer base, and it has continued to pay off when 1941 production zoomed past 374,000 units. The styling changes for 1941 were modest, but the changes under the hood were major. The compression ratio was raised from 6.15:1 to 7.0:1, the pistons were redesigned, a smaller spark plugs were substituted for the previous type and dual Stromberg Aerotype carburetors were introduced. It is powered by the exciting new 248 cu in Fireball Dynaflash inline-8 engine introduced this year, it is rated at 125 HP and 278 lb-ft of torque in both Special and Super models. This 1941 Buick Super Convertible shows off the elegance and power that popularized the Super nameplate. This is a well-kept and carefully maintained example of this sporty Buick convertible.  They comes with a 3-speed manual transmission.
