This is one of the 728 Stage-1s built in 1973, it's verified by the
V in the vin #. This car underwent a body off frame restoration. It
was rust free to begin with. During the restoration it was given a
few upgrades to make it the ultimate. How about a 450 hp motor, a
4-speed and a power sunroof from ASC.
EXTERIOR: Rust free original metal. Is this straight as an arrow.
The black paint has a mirror reflection. There are a few
imperfections- chips on the hood and a couple small cracks on the
roof. The jambs are repainted, weatherstrips were replaced. The
half roof is painted gloss white. A power sunroof was recently
professionally added by ASC, they install sunroofs for GM. The
bumpers are shiny but appear to be original. It has original glass.
It has stock 15" Buick mags, trim rings look new.
INTERIOR: Original, unabused interior. There's no rips or tears.
The white is a little dirty in the nooks and crannies, I believe it
will clean up real nice. The door panels the same way, a little
dirty but they're straight and not beat up, cracked or torn. The
dash pad is excellent, there's no cracks. Headliner is new. It has
a factory gauge cluster. It also has a Sun tachometer, oil and temp
gauges. The owner's manual is in the glove box.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Perfectly dry clean metal, it has a nice satin
black finish. It has an F 70 15 polyglass tire and a Buick mag for
a spare. The complete jack assembly is properly bolted in
UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame for a thorough
restoration. The floors are immaculate and painted a smooth gloss
black. Uncut original metal. The front end has been apart and
