When Better Cars Are Built

With so much snow cover enough details are still visible to tell that this is a 1941 Buick. The model is probably a Special which was built on both a 118 and a 121 inch wheelbase this year, but it could also be a Super as it also was built on the 121 inch wheelbase. The larger Century, Roadmaster and Limited had longer wheelbases and more space between the end of the front fender and the door so it cannot be one of those models. Buick had its best year to date with 316,251 cars produced during calendar year 1941 and model year production of 377,428 automobiles.
