1941 Buick 41 Sedanette Special - 34k ORIGINAL MILE SURVIVOR - 1942 Bill of Sale

248ci Straight-Eight ENGINE
Manual Column Shift TRANSMISSION

1941 Buick Sedanette Special Description:

This 1941 Buick 41 is a fastback sedan example that was acquired by us three months ago from a family who had reportedly purchased the car from its owner of approximately 50 years. Finished in Carlsbad Black over a tan fabric interior, the car is powered by a 248ci straight-eight driving the rear wheels through a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission. Work under previous ownership included updates to the electrical and fuel systems, while recent maintenance is said to have consisted of an oil change performed in preparation for the sale. This Buick is offered by the selling dealer with period documentation and maintenance logs, recent records, and a clean North Carolina title.
In addition to its fastback rear end design, additional features included an updated grille and Buick's single-panel two-way hood to provide engine access from either side. This example is finished in Carlsbad Black (560) and features evidence of prior touchups.Factory 16″ wheels are equipped with polished hub caps and trim rings and are fitted with a set of Firestone whitewall tires.
Trimmed from the factory with Tan & Blue Bedford Cord upholstery (900), the seats were redone in matching fabric in the early 2000s. Electrics were converted to 12V in 2004, and a battery kill switch was installed at the same time.Art Deco gauges, woodgrain trim, and aSonomaticAM radio are retained and shown further in the gallery below. The five-digit odometer shows approximately 34k miles.

Decoding the Fisher body tag reveals the following:

  • 1941 Mod 41- 1941 4-door sedan (fastback)
  • Body G 60260- 60260th style 4409 built in Flint, Michigan
  • Trim 900- Tan & Blue Bedford Cord interior
  • Paint 560- Carlsbad Black exterior
Paired with a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission, the 248ci straight-eight was equipped with "Compound Carburetion”for the 1941 model year, featuring two twin barrel carbs, with one unit operating all the time, the other engaged under hard acceleration.Additional materials accompanying the sale include period brochures and manuals, receipts of the car's purchase by the second owner in 1942, and a maintenance logbook chronicling maintenance from 1942 through 1958.
