The 1950 Buick Model 41 - known as the Special Deluxe sedan - was big, bold and really quite budget-pleasing and, by the time this 1950 Special Deluxe was produced, it was kicking off the new decade for Buick with all new sheet metal for a sleek new stance. Easily handling six passengers, it featured deluxe finishes throughout and plenty of luggage space for the whole family. It was one of the first re-designed luxury cars post WWII, setting the trend for lower, sleeked profiles and plenty of chrome wed see for the next decade.

The body panel fit and finish on this lovely Buick are excellent all the way around, showing only very minor wear. The glass and all rubber seals are likewise in fine shape. The chrome appears to be original, still with a nice shine, and the classic mint green and black paint combination fits the period well. Youll know its a Buick right away because of the gun-sight hood ornament and classic triple porthole styling cues. The car rides on painted steel wheels with proper Buick chrome hubcaps and modern whitewall tires. Take a good look underneath, and youll see a clean and solid chassis, with an engine bay thats right out of the Buick brochure in 1950. Inside, the cloth interior is very well-preserved, the floors clean, and the classic painted dash with lots of chrome for which Buick is famous.

The combination of the Fireball V-8 engine and the Dynaflow automatic transmission provide realistic modern highway speeds in this Special Deluxe four-door sedan that really fit the needs of modern American collectors and it will certainly offer the new owner effortless highway cruising for the whole family. Collectors love their Buicks for their ease of handling, room for six, solid performance, and this example is certainly a winner from start to finish. This Buick will deliver everything we all enjoy about classic autos its a head turner that is fully sorted and ready to enjoy.
