For many years Buick held an enviable position as a favorite of discriminating people including The Duke of Windsor, later King Edward VIII. This example, produced in the interrupted production year of 1942, shows for the first time the front fender partially extended across the front door.

The 1942 model year began in September 1941. World War II started on December 7th and automobile production ceased on 2 February 1942. 5,439 cars were built. This car cost $1,465, weighs 4,150 pounds, and is 217 inches overall on a 129-inch wheelbase chassis. The 'Fireball' 320 cubic-inch engine developed 165 horsepower at 3600 RPM. This was the largest and hottest passenger car engine in production anywhere in the world.

Despite the hardships imposed by lack of materials and uncertain production schedules, Buick made substantial changes in its 1942 models, and the near-total redesign caught virtually all other automakers by surprise. The new Buick was an extremely modern car, with its massive chrome grill and large bumpers. After 1 January 1942, the government prohibited the use of all chrome trim, and thus all trim pieces were painted in matching colors, primarily battleship gray. Known as 'blackout models,' production of these chrome-less cars stopped on 2 February 1942 when the government ended all auto production for the duration of the war. However, Buick did not have to resort to painted bumpers because it had enough pre-restriction chromed bumpers on hand to complete its 1942 model run.

The last Buick to leave the factory carried a sign reading: 'Until total victory we dedicate ourselves to the objective 'When better war goods are built, Buick workmen will build them.''
