The Buick Super is a full-sized car produced from the 1940 through the 1958 model years. It was built on Buick's larger body style (shared with the Roadmaster).
Basic styling was continued from 1942 now sedans had the front fender sweep across the doors to the rear fenders as did the Sedanet and convertible styles. A stamped grille with vertical bars dominated the frontal ensemble. Single stainless body trim lines began on the front fenders and ended at the rear edge of the standard rear wheelhouse shields. Standard equipment included an automatic choke, clock, ash receiver, turn signals and woodgrained instrument panels. Exterior series identification was found on the crossbar between the bumper guards front and rear. Cloisonne emblems carried the Super emblem. The number of body styles increased to four with the return of the Estate wagon after a six year absence.
The car uses the 'Fireball' Inline 8 engine with a 3-speed shift transmission. The Super was little changed from its 1946: Most noticeable was a stamped grille that had separate upper bar and new emblem. Stainless lower body moldings used, too. A white Tenite steering wheel was standard while the instruments were round and set into a two-toned dash panel. A chrome emblem was used with the series script and filled with red. Sales reached a record 160'000.
