1934 Buick Series 40

The 1934 Buick Series 40 was available in several body styles including a sedan, business coupe, sport coupe, and touring sedan. Pricing ranged from $855 to $925.

The headlights were updated for 1934, which now produced 20-percent more illumination. In the front were 3 horizontal hood louvers while the other models in the Buick lineup had 4 louvers. The automatic starting mechanism was improved to prevent the starter from being used when the ignition was locked.
