1938 Buick Series 60 Century

The 1936 Buick models were updated with a more elegant appearance and many improvements including modern all-steel 'Turret Top' body construction. Additionally, there was an advanced overhead-valve inline eight-cylinder engine, which would remain in use through 1952. These new models, along with a landmark advertising campaign, helped Buick post sales in excess of 225,000 by 1937 and climbed to a sixth-place sales ranking.

For 1938, Buick offered the Series 40 Special, Series 60 Century, Series 80 Roadmaster and the Series 90 Limited. Each rode on a different wheelbase, had different engine output, body style and cost. This diverse model range appealed to a wide audience.
