My first guess would be that it?s being sold to settle an estate or facilitate elder care. Someone spent a bunch of time and no little amount of money getting this car to look like it does.I knew these cars from the 40s aren't really loved because they all look the same and barely anyone can identify themselves with them, but I like 'em.
I'm just curious why this '41 is quite so cheap. Ok it's not perfect but similar cars can go for quite more than that.
For a bit more than 9 grand? Yeah!
It is not hard to learn if you already know how to drive a manual trans. But most won't even try.(3) It?s a standard shift. How many people do you know who are really comfortable operating a 3-on-the-tree?
(4) It?s a twin-carb car ? and anyone who knows
older Buicksmulti-carb setups, knows how finicky those can be?
(5) It?s a nice driver ? not a show car. Getting this car to a level where it could compete in judged car shows would probably require at least a 5-figure commitment and a lot of work on the part of the owner. The price of the needed chrome work alone would take your breath away!
All that said, the real charm of ?40s and ?50s cars is driving them as they were meant to be. Yeah, a lot of people turn them into street rods, but those generally drive like modern cars. Nothing wrong with that, I guess, but it?s not the same as enjoying a slower-paced drive in an old car on a two-lane country road! I certainly wouldn?t kick this one out of my garage for leaving a few drops of oil on the floor.
Folks, please don't think that I'm trying to start an argument here, but people who don't own/drive older cars regularly seem to think that they can't cope with today's traffic without upgrades. I own several older cars and while I don't drive them every day, I do take them on tours and longer trips.In my opinion, it is more appealing when it can be driven.
Also need to swap out the points for a conversion kit. I forgot that earlier.
