1941 Buick Estate Wagon Woodie
Unbelievably preserved 1941 buick woody Estate Wagon. Just came out of garaged storage since 1958. All original wood in excellent condition. No repairs and no rot. Original paint of Royal Maroon except for the P/S rear fender that was replaced in 1951 due to a parking lot fender bender. A small 2" chunk of wood was damaged in front of the P/S rear fender by the running board when it occured. Very straight sheetmetal with no rust or body filler. Driver side rear fender had a scrape at some point. Floors are as solid as they were new, but the rockers and some of the body mounts are dented underneath ( rocky road?) We went through the carbs, ignition, fuel pump, and hydraulic brake system. This car runs and drives but will need new tires, brake linings , and drums turned to be road worthy. It was amazing that all of the electricals work great with the exception of the clock and the radio does not make noise.( although it does light up) All of the gauges work and where the film residue was wiped off they look like new. Most of the chrome has a film on it that actually rubs off with your fingernail and is still shiny. All of the doors open and close like new. Windows roll up and down as new. Drivers door jamb is filled with oil change records from the 50's. The red leather upholstery is intact but dry and cracked. The previous owner remembers his siblings in the baby seat. (there is an indention mark from the baby seat if you take it out) Carpet and front mat are original but worn. (it would clean up well if desired, no holes) You will not find a better original 1941 Buick Estate Wagon anywhere. The amazing condition of the wood is unbelievable considering the fact that these cars were built using Ash, a much softer wood than Ford was using. One of only 800 built and believed to be one of 16 cars known to still exist today. Comes with 1950's pink slip and registration cards that match the plate #.
