For Sale: 1969 Buick Gran Sport in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This 1969 Buick is a real-deal GS 400 that is upgraded to a 455 Stage 1 tribute. It's the product of a multi-year restoration, and that means this is not only sleek and powerful, but it's also quite correct in the vintage details.

This was arguably the best year for these Buicks. They had an aggressively pointed front end and sweeping sides built into the sheet metal. This coupe is the product of a multi-year restoration. It was even resprayed in 2014. This upgraded the factory green to this awesome maroon metallic you see today. It has a deep luster that loves the sunlight, but the whole package never gets into trailer queen territory. After a GS400 like this is meant to be both admired AND fully enjoyed. The dark paint also showcases the best in brightwork with the angular front bumper, hood scoop grilles, and a rear bumper that tapers inward to show off the dual exhaust tips on this Grand Sport.

The black interior looks terrific against the deep maroon exterior. And the level of quality will have you leaving the windows down on this pillarless hardtop so you can proudly show it all off. This was a color change from stock, but it's so thorough that you'll be thinking more about a fresh time capsule than an upgraded restoration. It's a pure vintage style right down to details like the working Sonomatic AM radio, Buick badging on the center console, and courtesy lighting that greet you when the door opens. It's also built to be a true driver's muscle car with front bucket seats, a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a well-placed auxiliary gauge trio under the dash.

This wouldn't be a true Grand Sport without an awesome powerhouse, and if you're looking at the motor callout, then you know this one is something special. The GS455 would not be released until the next year, but this one couldn't resist the upgrades. And the Stage 1 package made it one of the fiercest muscle cars out there. This has classic features like the Rochester four-barrel carburetor and a fresh air intake. Plus, it's upgraded with worthwhile extras like a full MSD ignition package, an aluminum radiator, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. It makes for a serious power package. So this has a stout but smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission feeding into a 10-bolt 3.08 Positraction rear end. And because you want a Buick to be an all-around solid driver, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, a rear sway bar, and wide Cooper Cobra tires on classic Buick Rallye wheels.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, and PHS documentation. You can now see how this takes the classic GS400 you love and makes it a serious power player for the streets. Call today!!!
