Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 14090337
Engine #: 54273518
Sold for $35,200 at 2014 Gooding & Company - Amelia Island Sale.
For 1941, Buick offered 26 distinct body styles and would sell a total of 377,000 units, the most ever. The new Buicks had been upgraded over their 1940 siblings. The 248 cubic-inch Fireball straight-eight engines now offered 125 horsepower and 278 lbs/ft of torque, thanks to new compound twin carburetion. One carburetor was designed to operate at lower speeds, but under full throttle, the second carburetor would kick-in. The three-speed manual transmission was now operated by column shift. Adding to the vehicle's convenience, the hood could now be opened from either side.

The 1941 Buick Super Convertible, priced at $1,265, was very popular with more than 12,000 examples produced. This made Buick the second largest manufacturer of convertibles, behind Ford.

This particular example was owned by Mr. Floyd Warner from 1941 through 2003, when it was willed to his nephew. It was eventually sold to Mr. Eugene Poole of Maryland. In 2005, Mr. Poole gave the car a sympathetic cosmetic refurbishment that included a bare-metal re-spray of the body in its original color of Code 563, Royal Maroon (also called Imperial Maroon on some color charts). A new maroon leather interior and a new tan canvas folding top with correct contrasting piping was also installed. The 12-inch drum brakes were rebuilt and both of the bumper assemblies were re-chromed.

This car has several factory options including outside rearview mirrors, Sonomatic radio, fender skirts, and back-up lights.

The 248 cubic-inch overhead valve straight-8 engine is fitted with dual Carter downdraft carburetors and offering 125 horsepower. There are 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and a three-speed column-shift manual transmission.
