This 1940 Buick Shop Manual is a high-quality, authorized licensed PRINT reproduction of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) shop manual, which was written and first published by Buick Motors Division. Buick was known for offering a huge variety of vehicle styles and 1940 was no different. You could order a Series 40, a Series 50, a Series 60, a Series 70, a Series 80 or a Series 90 and each series had from two to six models available. Sedans, coupes, convertibles, limousines and others were manufactured to suit a broad spectrum of tastes and needs.

This service manual holds the information necessary to help get (and keep) your 1940 Buick in tune, whether it's a Series 40, 50, 60, 70, 80 or 90.

Sharp black and white photos, diagrams, schematics and other visual aids throughout this brand new printed manual work together with detailed written descriptions to walk you through adjustments and repairs to all areas of the vehicle (such as: Body, Frame, Suspension, Axle, Brakes, Engine, Transmission, Fuel Tank, Exhaust, Steering, Wheels, Tires, Sheet Metal, Electrical, Cooling, Accessories and more). You'll be happy to know that this shop manual also contains wiring diagrams.

NOTE: This 1940 Buick Shop Manual covers the servicing of mechanical operations, but NOT the body. For body information, please see the 1939 - 1940 Fisher Body Service Manual, which can be found by clicking here...1939 -1940 Fisher Body Service Manual.
