Buick introduced sweeping 'Airfoil' fenders on its 1942 Super and Roadmaster series two-door sedans and convertibles - making them the first major American cars, and the only GM cars, to have this innovative feature. Other styling features on the 1942 models originated with the Buick Y-Job experimental convertible created by the eminent GM designer, Harley Earl, in 1938.

The attractive 1942 Buick design would essentially be carried through the 1948 model year. However, post-WWII Super models would have a single bright trim strip along their body sides, instead of the dual strips seen on this 1942.

The 1942 Buick Super Convertible was built on a 124-inch wheelbase and had a production shipping weight of 3,998 pounds. The original price was $1,450. A total of 2,489 of the Model 56C Super Convertibles were produced before production was halted in February 1942, when General Motors converted completely to war production.

This particular car was produced in Flint, Michigan on or about November 4, 1941. Critical metals needed for defense dictated that cast-iron pistons replace the aluminum pistons used in prior-year versions of its 118-horsepower Buick Fireball straight-eight engine.
