For Sale: 1969 Buick Gran Sport in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Buick didn't invent the idea of luxury muscle, but the GS certainly defined the breed. This 1969 Buick GS400 convertible delivers on Buick's unique blend of performance and panache with a premium golden glow, cold-blowing A/C interior, and big and powerful V8 heart.

That factory-correct Trumpet Gold sets the tone nicely for this one. It's the more sophisticated hue that you want in a car like this. After all, the GS was the top-of-the-line Skylark, and so it deserves some flair. Plus, the color was updated later in life. It's a mix of a good luster that lets this sunshine-friendly convertible radiate, but it also won't ever make you too nervous to enjoy. And when you do take it out on the town, the crisp sheetmetal shows off the distinct style of the sharply pointed front end, sweeping line that runs through the doors, and the sleek rear that almost seamlessly dips low into the shining chrome bumper. So it really gets the sophisticated Buick look correct. And the GS side offers sporty upgrades like the blacked-out grille, a low-profile hood scoop, and Rallye wheels with new redline tires.

Black and gold are a terrific combination. So not only do you get a great-fitting black roof, but with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a sharp black interior. Newer upholstery, good carpeting, awesome door panels, a smooth dash, and more all give you a quality feeling in the fundamentals. So it's quite an attractive and dark total presentation. It has a nice classic driver feel with the three-spoke sports steering wheel and a speedometer as wide as the horizon. But what you'll really love are the well-integrated upgrades. There's a retro-style AM/FM/iPod stereo that gives you upgraded driving music. And top down driving is always more fun when the factory air conditioning is upgraded to cold-blowing R134a refrigerant.

Under the hood is a period-correct 400 cubic-inch V8. It was rebuilt as part of the later investments in this car, and those who know Buicks will spot all the right details. It's dressed correctly with the correct GS 400 air grabber, and there's even the correct bright red block radiating power from within the dark engine bay. And we just know you love how the hood scoop feeds fresh air directly to the four-barrel carburetor. The mighty motor exhales with a dignified authority out of the dual exhaust. The V8 has serious power that made these Buicks a force to be reckoned with. And so the ideal pairing is the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that is both stout and smooth. This feeds a 12-bolt rear end. Add that to more great driving features like power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, boxed rear trailing arms, and thick sway bars front & rear.

This is a premium drop-top muscle machine with all the right features already installed. So when it's time for the premium muscle car experience, it's time to step up to this GS. Call today!!!
