Sport Coupe
This was the first year - 1936 - that Buick offered the sport coupe body style on the Special chassis. Only 2,003 were built and 17 of those were exported.

This was the year that saw Buick's turnaround begin. There was so much new for 1936 - dramatic new styling, hydraulic brakes, slanted v-type windshield, bullet-type headlamps, turret top bodies, independent front suspension, new alloy pistons and improved water temperature control.

This Buick Special is powered by one of Buick's famous straight eight motors - the 233 cubic-inch version that developed 93 horsepower thanks to a two-barrel Stromberg carburetor. It was capable of 85 mph.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
