For Sale: 1973 Buick Century in Alsip, Illinois

Vehicle Description

The Buick Gran Sport was the muscle car version of the Buick Century. The GM A-bodies were new for 1973, featuring the Colonnade styling. ... The four Gran Sport engine choices for the '73 line-up included either a 175 net horsepower 2-bbl 350 CID V8 or a 190 net horsepower 4-bbl 350 CID V8.

As for the GS models, during the 1973-74 model years, Buick dropped the GS "model," in favor of a Gran Sport "sub-series" that in its base form included nothing more than a set of tape stripes and a blacked-out grille, at least for the first year. And it is Gran Sport; the GS acronym is only officially used on the 1967 to 1972 GSs. As a side note, there were Gran Sports available in 1975, but literally as a $171 trim package, and only with the 231-cu.in. V-6 and 350 V-8.
In standard form, the Gran Sport was austere, featuring the same vinyl bench seat and column-shifted three-speed automatic transmission as the Century four-door your Aunt Sally would have driven to church. At the very base level, the Gran Sport series included an electric clock, wheel arch moldings, a better level of gauges, and glovebox, ashtray and courtesy lamps.

Gran Sports were built in relatively small numbers. In 1973, just 6,637 were assembled, of which only 979 were 455-powered cars.

This Fantastic GS Currently Is Powered By An Early 70's Buick 455 Stage 1, Slightly Warmed Over, With Headers And Flowmaster Mufflers. HEI Ignition System, Holley Dual Feed Carburetor. Cold Air Conditioning Was Converted Over To R134.
Our Client Has The Original Buick 350 That Was Removed And Will Be Included In Sale.
