One of only 194 built in 1940, the final year for the Century phaeton. Attractive older restoration in original colors. Powerful, smooth, fast 320 cubic inch straight-8. A great tour car that will always run at the head of the pack. Bandalier Blue is this car’s original color, and when it was restored back in the 1990s, they used a finish that was a close to the original as they could get it. That means the smallest hint of metallic in the finish to make it shine but not enough to make it look modern. “Phaeton” is what Buick called their convertible sedans and the 4-door convertible looks sporting from any angle thanks to great proportions. The Century is widely regarded as the fastest pre-war car you could buy, combining the 141-horsepower straight-8 with a mid-sized body and the combination really works here. Proportions are just right, and it’s spacious without being big and bulky. Dual sidemounts add to the car’s exclusivity, as only a small number of Centurys were built with sidemounts, and it makes this look like a much more imposing, expensive car. The paint is in good condition, showing a few minor signs of use and age and with some touch-ups here and there, but nothing that requires attention. It is not a show car by any means, but for tours and casual shows it is ideal and will always attract more than its fair share of attention. Most of the chrome is nicely done, with only some minor pitting in the pot metal grille, a situation that’s all but unavoidable with cars of this era. Fog lights, sidemount mirrors, and turn signals built into the trunk emblem are all nice details that make the Buicks of this era really stand out. The blue leather interior was nicely restored at the same time, following the original patterns. It’s spacious for four and comfortable for five, and anyone other than a starting forward in the NBA will find there’s plenty of room. The plastic steering wheel and various knobs have been recently restored and the engine-turned dash panels are in great shape, showing a correct pattern that’s hard to replicate. All the factory gauges are operational, although some of their faces are a little tired (reproductions are readily available). The radio and clock are not working due to the 12-volt electrical system, but things like the wipers, heaters, and other items are working like they should. Correct short-nap carpets feel durable and look great with contrasting tan bindings and even the rear seat courtesy lights work properly. The top is pretty old, and while it will fold, it feels fragile. However.
