Description


THIS IS A WONDERFUL 1938 BUICK CENTURY! THE CENTURY’S WERE VERY FAST. NEW FOR BUICK IN 1938 WAS THE VALVE-IN-HEAD DYNAFLASH ENGINE. HORSEPOWER INCREASED IN 1938 TO OVER 140. TORQUE WAS UP TO NEARLY 270, GIVING THE ’38 CENTURY MORE THAN ENOUGH TO REACH 100 MPH THAT THE CENTURY NAME DEMANDED.

THIS 1938 BUICK CENTURY IS THE MODEL 61 TOURING 4 DOOR SEDAN WITH TRUNK BACK. UNTIL RECENTLY, THIS DRY CLIMATE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA 1938 BUICK HAS BEEN DRIVEN AND ENJOYED BY ITS OWNER OF 30 YEARS, AN AVID COLLECTOR. THIS ALWAYS GARAGED RESTORED BUICK IS IN EXCELLENT RUNNING CONDITION AND IS BEING SOLD WITH MUCH REGRET AND ONLY BECAUSE THE OWNER IS NO LONGER ABLE TO DRIVE.

THE 1938 BUICK CENTURY

The name Buick Century was the model name utilized by the Buick division of GM for their line of full-size performance cars from 1936 until 1942. The 1938 Buick Century was built using the largest 8-cylinder engine they produced and mounting it in the mid-size chassis. The Century’s were very fast and had a lot of success at various racing events for many years. Horsepower increased in 1938, now rated at over 140. Torque was up to nearly 270, which was more than adequate to satisfy the 100 mph speed that the Century name demanded. Because of its speed capability, the Century earned the nickname 'the banker's hot rod.'



THIS IS A VERY WELL MAINTAINED 1938 BUICK CENTURY THAT IS OWNED BY A KNOWLEDGABLE COLLECTOR. THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF ANY RUST DAMAGE. IT HAS HAD THE SAME OWNER FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS, BEEN LOVINGLY CARED FOR AND MAINTAINED, AND IS READY FOR ITS NEW OWNER TO DRIVE, SHOW AND ENJOY!

Vehicle Condition:

THIS 1938 BUICK CENTURY IS VERY ATTRACTIVE TO SAY THE LEAST. IT RUNS AND DRIVES WONDERFULLY!



This Buick is 77 years old, so some signs of age are to be expected! While it is strikingly beautiful, it is not a newly restored vehicle. Let me first say that nearly everything appears to be in beautiful condition. However, there are some small things that need to be mentioned here. The paint has a light metallic to it, and I do not know if it was like that from the factory. There are some paint touch ups and minor scratches. There are a few tiny dings to the stainless. The white walls were originally painted onto the tires with a special rubber based paint. Subsequent repainting appears rough, but may be able to be smoothed out. There are some scuffs and scratches to the chrome bumpers and bumper guards. The interior is in excellent condition. A later model AM/FM/Cassette radio has been installed.

This Buick Century is absolutely beautiful. It would not take much to bring this Buick up to the next level!



Note that we cannot confirm that the odometer reading above reflects this Buick’s actual total miles.


This Buick will turn heads and gets thumbs up virtually everywhere it goes!
