BUICK SERIES 40 SPECIAL CO/MO/RO

4-door sedan, fixed-head coupé, convertible coupé, convertible sedan.

Essentially as for '36, but now with the big 100bhp (107bhp 1938) engine in Buick's best seller. 1937's horizontal barred grilles get thicker bars for '38 across the range. Other changes as for bigger cars, though '39s have 2ins shorter wheelbase, and this year the rumble seats have gone from coupés and convertibles, thank heaven. Convertible sedan (fastback) UK-available '38, but that year's optional four-speed semi-automatic never listed here.
