This 1940 Buick Limited Model 81C Fastback Convertible Phaeton is one of only 14 documented examples remaining in existence. It is a CCCA Full Classic and formerly the possession of the Buick Club of American founder, Greg Field. During the early 1990s, Mr. Field had the car restored. It is painted in Sequoia Yellow and fitted with a tan convertible top with red piping. There are large amber fog lights, front and rear bumper guards, dual side-mounted spare tires with hard covers, and dual chrome plated mirrors.
The interior is Burgundy leather upholstery with a wood grain dash and a DeLuxe steering wheel. The list of amenities include a standard clock, Fresh Aire underseat heater and defroster system, a folding rear windscreen, and a fold-down armrest for the rear passenger compartment.
In 2008, this car was brought to the 2nd Annual Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $100,000-$125,000. Though the vehicle carried a reserve, it was lifted even though bidding did not reach the estimated value. The lot was sold for $$77,000 including buyer's premium.Also photographed at :
