Convertible Phaeton
Chassis #: 13279428
Sold for $77,600 at 2007 The Hilton Head Sports & Classic Car Auction.
This 1938 Buick Model 40C Phaeton was offered for sale at the 2007 Sports and Classic Car Auction presented by The Worldwide Group, in Hilton Head Island, SC where it was estimated to sell for $70,000 - $90,000. It was offered without reserve. It was recently awarded a 'Best in Class' award at several Northeastern Concours and Buick Club events. This is a testament to the vehicles superior restoration and excellent condition. The chrome, trim, engine compartment, undercarriage, and all other aspects of the car are in top form.

This car is finished in formal black with burgundy stripes and a burgundy leather interior. It has a Haartz cloth top that was custom fitted for this car, is finished in black with red piping. There are four doors, split windshield, side-mounted and covered spare, and whitewall tires.

Offering a car without reserve means the car will be sold regardless if it meets the estimated value. In this case, the high bid fell within the estimated value, selling for $77,600 including buyer's premium.
