Yes but it seems 'Eight' isn't the model name. Century, Special or Limited?

By the shape of the rear bumper and headlights above the front fenders I would go for a 1939 Buick.The thumbnail picture is very small but it could have a split rear window pointing to a Roadmaster Touring sedan model 81 .Centurys and Specials had one piece rear windows and Limiteds were bigger

No it's not a Roadmaster the taillights are small series taillights. The big series '39's share tail lights with '38 and '40 large series Buicks. A weird quirk of Buick for '39.

Please see the taillights on this 1939 Roadmaster (/vehicle_180930-Buick-Roadmaster-81-1939.html) to see the difference in the taillights on the big versus small series cars. The Roadmaster and Limited taillights are red on the sides, while the small series cars (Special and Century) had the taillights as seen in this car (/vehicle_9833-Buick-Special-1939.html) and the one posted above.

So this is a special or a Century but I don't see anything to make a definitive choice other than they produced WAY more Specials so the odds favor a Special.
