1939 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door Sedan © 2011 antiquecarnut.com

The 1939 body style was very different from it’s 1937 and 1938 predecessors in that it appeared longer, sleeker and heavier. This picture was taken by the writer at Whitehall, Montana several years ago and I believe it was 2 years ago I saw it at the Deer Lodge, Montana antique automobile museum. A friend of my family in Enid, Oklahoma purchased a new 1939 that wes adorned in a dark green color. I’ll never forget how nice it looked and how I wished my family could afford one like it, but I knew our finances at the time precluded that ever happening!! Dad was doing well with his 1936 Chevy with over 100,000 miles on it! The depression wasn’t over for us for about another 10 years!!
