1939 Buick 46 C Special Convertible Additional Info:

National 1st place champion - Judged the best. Buicks new styling in 1939 featured a new 2 piece "Waterfall" grill with ultra thin vertical bars. Much larger view windshield doors larger for easy access. Narrower hood and a new dash arrangement with professional burled walnut wood grain with "Hand Shift" column mounted shift lever was new to 1939. In 2012 this car experienced a complete body off professional restoration with no expense spared - the final parts needed for reassembly were purchased (from a Buick collector in Australia no less) along with a more stateside set of fender skirts. Body fits excellent and clad in Lassen Green with a touch of metallic base coat - clear coat real pearls were ground up and added to the spray. Chassis completely disassembled and restored to new with many N.O.S. parts. All new interior including door panels accented with tan harts cloth top and boot. The interior was analyzed by Don Summerlin of Hoyt's Auto Upholstery in Sarasota and it was determined that new red leather would be essential in returning the car to its original configuration. Former president of A.A.C.A Mr. Beauchamp showed this beautiful Buick at the A.A.C.A forums where the car was judged the best Junior and Senior A.A.C.A - Preservation award and first national alliance award. Truly with all the show acclimates one of the finest Buick special convertibles to exist and to be available. Upon final assembly the car was taken to the 2013 A.A.C.A Winter Meet in Lakeland Florida and it won an AACA Junior award. Finally realizing the car's potential as a show-goer come to fruition the car was again gone over with a fine tooth comb and it was decided to send off the interior chrome pieces (window cranks door handles and ignition switch) to get replated. The following April the car won a Senior in Charlotte followed by a First Preservation in Auburn Indiana and then a Second Preservation in Carlisle Pennsylvania. In November Mr. Beauchamp finally received the letter that had never been sent on his other show ready '39s a letter from the A.A.C.A stating that the 46C has been nominated for a national award. In December the letter was sent confirming that this car was among the elite. After 50+ years in the BCA Mr. Beauchamp's car was awarded the First national award and he himself received the inaugural Buick Alliance Award in memory of Terry B. Dunham a friend and famed Buick historian. Showing 3400 miles this car proudly wears its badging and still comes with a clear cover for the soft top. We purchased this car fully aware that it was an exquisite example and one of the last '39s built (#4502/4569). From every angle the car will tell stories of the love and dedicated owner ship over the past 30 years. Youtube video available upon request.
