1941 Buicks in the showroom

Great news for Buick lovers in Los Angeles this summer (and who reading this doesn't fall into that category), the Petersen Auto Museum in Museum Row is having a very special display of the much loved and wildly popular 1941 Buick. We received the following press communique from Bill Anderson of the Buick Heritage Alliance and he explains it so well, we'll just let him describe it:
"Today, the experience of looking at new 1941 Buicks at a dealership in downtown Los Angles is again a reality. On the first floor of the Petersen Automotive Museum at 6060 Wilshire Boulevard, you will find a 1930s dealership showroom faithfully re-assembled within the museum’s confines and featuring samples of the “Best Buick Yet.”
Greeting you as you enter the Buick showroom is a Monterey Blue Super convertible sedan with a red leather interior. In the center of the showroom is a Super sport coupe in Mermaid Green over Cedar Green upon which every dealer-installed 1941 Buick accessory has been applied.

Finally, the “dealer” has a Limited Formal Sedan finished in Silver French Grey over Lancaster Grey, if your finances are really secure; the sticker price is $2,310.
Perhaps one of these cars is for you. If not, Buick has a full lineup of 26 different 1941 models, including many sedans, with prices starting at $735.
This step back in time featuring one of Buick’s most popular model years was made possible by the Buick Heritage Alliance in conjunction with Petersen Automotive Museum curator Leslie Mark Kendall and the generosity of each car’s owner. This special display will continue through July 29."
The Buick Heritage Alliance is a not-for-profit organization focused on preserving the heritage of Buick automobiles and the people who made them. Find the BHA online at .
The Petersen Automotive Museum is located on Museum Row at 6060 Wilshire Blvd,  Los Angeles, CA 90036. It can be found at
