1939 Buick 46-S Sports Coupe. DGC9676. VIN 43589676. I'm impressed with the overall condition of this 1939 Buick. It was sold to the gentleman I bought it from as an original “survivor car” and they believe that it's 54,616 original miles. Now has 56,421 miles showing. There is no way to prove that. I will tell you that the car is pretty amazing for the fact that almost everything works. The cigarette lighter works, the dome light does not. Old School Garage got it working when he did the service and safety check. The trunk light works. I could not get the fog lights to turn on but Joe did. You won't believe how smooth the doors close. The engine is an eight cylinder 107 hp 248 cu.in. It runs very well and it has been rebuilt. It had an exhaust manifold leak so it was noisy. Joe found an new exhaust manifold for it and now it’s quite. The transmission and clutch operate smoothly. The heater did not have a fan switch so Joe installed one. Now you get heat. Did you know that Buick was the first car with turn signals? The Buick emblem on the trunk lid is where the turn signals are and they were just fine. From 5 feet away you would think the paint is beautiful but it is not. It has been repainted at sometime. The interior could be all original except for the cloth wind seals around the doors. They just look too good to be original. It has jump seats in the back that fold up, out of the way for more storage. Another thing that works is the seat adjustment. It was smooth and they are almost always frozen up. The seat moves freely back-and-forth when you go to position it for your comfort. The trunk looks all original. It has the spare tire and jack. The chrome looks good but not perfect. It has BFGoodrich wide whites. Joe also fixed other things I found and Joe found so makes it a very pleasurable car to drive. I think you'll be very surprised how smooth and nice this car is to drive. Cond. # 3+.
