RealRides of WNY #2563 ......................... 1940 Buick Super

– The 1940 Buick Super was a new series from the Flint manufacturer. It came in two models: a six-passenger four-door touring sedan, and this five-passenger sport coupe. One feature which made it stand out from the other 1940 Buicks was its absence of visible running boards. You can see the difference when comparing it to the brochure illustration below of the Special sport coupe with its optional fender-mounted spare (which was not available on the Super). Today’s RealRide was spotted at a car show on the Alfred State College campus, which was held in conjunction with the 2022 Hemmings Motor News Great Race lunch stop last summer.
