The 1941 Buick line included several important performance enhancements, thanks to Charles Chayne and his engineering department. There was 'compound carburetion' which utilized two two-barrel carburetors that were mounted in tandem and connected by a progressive linkage. This allowed the forward carburetor to operate full-time, while the rear carburetor operated only under hard acceleration. Compression was raised to 7.0:1 and higher piston crowns fitted, bringing the 320 cubic-inch valve-in-head engine to nearly 170 horsepower an 278 pound-feet of torque. To add to the excitement, Buick owners could choose the rear axle ratios, catering to their specific need, and costing no additional charge.

There were a total of 15,372 examples of the Roadmaster produced in 1941, accounting for only a small portion of Buick's 377,000 overall production. Only 312 examples were the Convertible Phaetons.

This 1941 Buick Roadmaster Model 71C Convertible Phaeton was originally owned by an individual in Pittsburgh, PA. It was used as a taxi in the Cleveland-Akron area. In 1972, it was purchased by an individual living in Denver and would remain in their care for the next three decades. In 2003, ownership passed to an individual living in Colorado. While in their care, the car was treated to a body-off restoration. It has been driven a mere 80 miles since that time.

This car is powered by the 'Fireball' 320 cubic-inch dual two-barrel carburetor engine and mated to a three-speed manual gearbox. The wheelbase measures 126 inches and there are four-wheel hydraulically-actuated drum brakes.

In 2008, this car was brought to the 2nd Annual Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $120,000-$140,000. Though bidding only reached $104,500, including buyer's premium, it was enough to satisfy the reserve and the lot was sold.

In 2009, this car was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions where it was estimated to sell for $110,000 - $140,000. The lot was sold for the sum of $93,500, including buyer's premium.
