1939 Buick 46 S Sport Coupe

This featured 1939 Buick 46 S Sport coupe is a rare post-war survivor with only 54,616 original miles on its odometer. It features a combination of elegance and sporty design, a successful trend during the late 1930s but was short lived due to the start of World War II.

The Buick featured a very smooth design which was renewed for the 1939 year model. The sleek style was further improved by the fender skirts which were available as an option from the assembly line. The dashboard is an example of the stark modern style from that time, with gauges arranged in a linear fashion.

It is currently listed for sale on Classiccars by a private dealer from Volo, Illinois. According to its dealer, this Buick is an all-original survivor that has been preserved through time. It comes in a beautiful Wine Rose finish that gives an excellent shine, although there is no information if it is a repaint or not.

This Buick 46 is powered by an overhead-valve inline-8 engine that was recently rebuilt. According to the dealer, “the entire car was professionally detailed to perfection” which can clearly be seen in the pictures. The inline-8 engine is connected to a 3-speed transmission. The dealer ensured that this Buick runs smoothly without any trouble or weird noises.

The tan rib-cord upholstery is the original factory installed upholstery which shows fading that is common for a very old but well-maintained classic. The “banjo” steering wheel and dashboards look great. Although it looks like a two-seater car, it has a seat of “opera seats” in the rear which can be folded down from either side to provide space for two more passengers.

The asking price of $27,900 seems about right for this unusually nice Buick survivor, which the dealer says “is one remarkable show stopper you can drive with confidence.”

A post-war classic as original and well-preserved as this one is very rare which puts the $27,900 asking price just about right. This 1939 Buick 46 S Sport coupe “is one remarkable show stopper you can drive with confidence,” the dealer added.
