Touring Sedan
Chassis #: 12751447
Engine #: 73862989
Sold for $36,300 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall.
1940 was a big year for the Buick marque, with registration passing the 233,000 mark, which was something it had not done since 1926. Buick introduced the Estate wagon and the Super line in 1940, adding to pedigree of the Buick marque.

The Buick vehicles became more modern in design in 1940 by phasing out such design cues as the side-mounted spare tires and the running boards.

This 1940 Buick Roadmaster Sedan Model 71 was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook. It was offered without reserve and estimated to sell between $25,000 - $35,000. It is powered by a 320 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine capable of producing over 140 horsepower. There is a column-mounted three-speed sliding gearbox and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. It is finished in black with a gray and white pinstriped interior. It has been treated to a full body-off-the-frame restoration to concours quality in 1988. It has earned its AACA National badge and an AACA Senior National win.

Though it has an older restoration, it is still in good condition. At auction, the high bid exceeded the estimated value; the car was sold for $36,300 including buyers premium.
