BUICK Eight Coupe roadster.1941.
The Buick Special was an automobile produced by the Division of Buick Engine of General Motors , Flint, Michigan ( USA ). It was generally lower priced model of Buick, starting out as a car of full size in the year 1936 and returning in 1961 (after a two year hiatus) as a size medium.
The 36 was a very successful year for Buick and also marked the first time the use of names in place of the simple serial numbers. The Special continued to also be known as the 40-series, however. The Specials first rode on a 118 in (3.0 m) wheelbase, but for the model the following year is increased to 122 in (3.10 m) as all Buicks grew for that year. The engine was also new, and was now of 248-cubic-inch (4,1 L) in place of 233 cubic inches (3.8 L). The Special (and especially all the Buicks) underwent a complete redesign for 1939, with a larger front closed and a grill wider. The wheelbase was also two inches shorter. For 1940, there was the usual restyle and the wheelbase increased by an inch. This was also the year that a single-model four-door convertible Special ("Sport Phaeton") was offered, although only 552 units were built.
For 1941, the body design of new, with the front wings now very closely integrated into the design of cars in general. The Estate Wagon migrated to be a Super Special in the alignment. Another novelty was the 40-A series (the Special regular now is the 40-B), a version of a wheelbase three inches shorter that shared its body with the 1941 Chevrolet. Production ended on 4 February 1942. In 1946 only the most extensive range Special was still available, even before the war with the B-body. The Special '46 is uncommon, representing less than 2% of the production of Buick that year. The Special continued with minor changes until the body before the war was finally replaced half of the model year 1949 post-war were only Special available as a four-door sedan or a two-door "sedanet", until the new models 1949 arrived.
