Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 13481114
Sold for $49,500 at 2009 Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook.
The Buick Century, designated Series 60, was the brainchild of general manager Harlow Curtice. For 1939, Buick abandoned the rumble seat and installed indoor 'opera seats' in the rare of coupes and convertibles. Directional signals became standard, operated from a switch on the new 'Handishift' column-mounted shifter.

This Century Convertible was an AACA Senior First winner in 1981 and was restored about that time and has been carefully preserved ever since. It is a highly presentable example with a good paint job that has no checking or major chips. There is a tan canvas top in good condition and the seats and door panels have been re-upholstered in tan vinyl. There is a brown rubber mat in front and carpet in the rear seat area. The red plastic steering wheel is in good condition and has no crack.

In 2009, this car was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $45,000-$55,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $49,500, including buyer's premium.
