1941 Buick Special Sedanette Model 46S
The model 46S six-passenger Sport Coupe, commonly called a "Sedanette" due to its fastback design was built on the division's 121-inch-wheelbase chassis. Though visually similar to the 1940 models, the cars had an updated grille and front fenders complementing the new-to-Buick single-panel two-way hood, which opened from either side to expose Buick's venerable 248-cu.in. straight-eight engine. Much like a four-barrel carburetor, Buick’s system used two twin barrel carbs, with one unit operating all the time, the other engaged under hard acceleration. Fitted with a column-shifted 3-speed manual transmission, the car is a reliable runner. The Sport Coupe was a popular buy, 87,687 were built during the model year and features the optional 125-hp engine, made possible by the same-year introduction of "compound carburetion," or dual two-barrel carburetors. The car is wearing what appears to be original paint in some areas, and an old repaint in other areas with spider crazing on most of the horizontal surfaces that gives it kind of a neat patina as well.
