BUICK SPECIAL — SERIES 40 — EIGHT: Both the Special and Century lines received new bodies for 1941. As with all 1941 Buicks they featured front fenders that extended nearly to the front door, headlights that were almost totally integrated into the front fender line and a broader front grille. The Estate model moved into the Series 40 line for 1941. On Feb. 3, 1941 four new Special series 40A models were introduced with a 118″ wheelbase. These carried a 40-A designation which brought a new 40-B identification for the original Series 40.
