Buick Century Coupe 1939

Very neat and virtually stainless (it does have a little rust behind the side sills) A west coast car since new.
Previous Arizona owner (an older couple) had this coupe for more than 40 years.
Including documentation, the car drives and runs well, it has a very nice interior.
It still has good lacquer (with, of course, some signs of wear).
Four new whitewall tires and a 12 volt conversion
The car has been pre-inspected by us for a new registration, most parts that need replacing have been ordered in the US and will be included.

Centuries produced between 1936 and 1942 had a 320-cubic-inch 8 cyl. 165 hp.
These were the fastest Buicks from that period and were called "the bankers hot-rod".

The car comes with a USA title and EU import documents, imported from Arizona, United States.
Import duties and VAT have been paid (it still requires a Dutch Periodic Vehicle Inspection by the Netherlands Vehicle Authority if you want a Dutch registration).

This vehicle can be viewed and picked up in Damwoude, the Netherlands.

This is a used vehicle. It is highly advisable to view the vehicle before bidding, to avoid disappointment afterwards. To arrange a viewing appointment or for more info, please contact Catawiki. Offers are excluding transport and export, unless otherwise indicated.

    Hallo California Team,
    Am Fahrzeug fehlte Getriebe- und Lenköl. Weiterhin war die Motordrehzahl viel zu hoch und beide Ventildeckeldichtungen waren undicht.

    A very friendly contact, although the description of the car should have been better, as not all damages have been mentioned in the explanation.
