Wreaks of Elegance

1939 Buick Phaeton©

This car to me just has the looks of the best in elegance! It just looks important!! How many ’39 phaetons have you ever seen? I have seen two in my life!! This one and another owned by a fellow Montanan. His is a nice light yellow color and just as outstanding as the one pictured. I can just see this one in a parade going down Broadway in New York City transporting Franklin D. Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan!!

1939 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door Sedan © 2011

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!!
