What is it you are looking for in a Classic Car? Specifically, what do you want, or like in a Muscle car? Muscle cars simply put were designed for the young, if not “young thinking” individual that wants some excitement, maybe some attention, or the thrill of driving a car that sounds and performs better than the “Cookie Cutter” cars that blend into each other.
Absolutely one of the finest 1972 Buick GS's you'll find! This car is excellent in every aspect. The paint is beautiful, the vinyl top is excellent with no rust bubbling or crunching underneath, and the Strato-black bucket seat interior is among the most comfortable seating you will ever experience in a classic car.
The original, rebuilt 350 engine with all of it's Ram-Air components still in tact, starts up and fast idles cold, like it should, then settles into a nice low idle, place the factory console mounted horseshoe shifter into the drive position and you're driving around not only in comfort, but a true sense of reliability.
If it's hot out, move the “Jewel-lit” Climate control toggles into the A/C position, roll the windows up easily and enjoy the nice cool breeze provided by a quality Air conditioning system that works great!
This Buick is at home whether on the freeway, around town, or hanging out at a Cruise-in or car show. The ride is superior, and quiet. The exhaust sounds low and subtle and actually enables you to listen the the aftermarket stereo, (if you're into that sort of thing!).
The Factory Tach Dash is very crisp and therefore easy to read. All of the lights work including the dash lights, turn signals and courtesy lights.
This particular GS seems to have led an easy life, as there are really no issues with the car, including no rust...Anywhere! The under carriage is clean and dry, although not detailed, just clean and original.
While driving this GS, you won't be annoyed by squeaks and rattles in the interior either. It's just a fantastic looking, driving, operating example of “The Gentleman's Muscle-car”. Nicely appointed from the factory, and well equipped, this is a keeper!
