Among the redesigned muscle car offerings was the Buick's GS, which had already officially adopted the slang term used to describe its Gran Sport on the street and strip. There were actually three GS models offered during the 1968-'69 model years: the California GS, the GS 350 and the GS 400 model featured here. While the Skylark came badged as everything from Special Deluxe to GS 400, it was only the Skylark Custom and GS 400 that were available as convertibles. The GS 400 was Buick's muscle car submission, designed to go head-to-head with the other intermediates on the street; the Chevelle, GTO, 442 as well as the Ford Fairlane and Mercury Comet; the Rambler Rebel; and the Dodge and Plymouth B-bodies like Roadrunner, GTX, Super Bee, and Charger. Visually, the GS 400 differed from the typical Buick look with its more-restrained use of trim. The 1968 GS featured simulated air extractors behind the front wheels and GS badges on both front fenders slyly calling out this was not your typical grocery getter, in fact it was the howitzer with windshield wipers, as Buick had boasted in their ads for the Skylark Gran Sport back in 1965. The GS 400 was the top of the performance heap for Buick with a big-block, which was entering its sophomore season. Emerging from the upscale division of GM, this unlikely muscle car was beginning to garner attention on the street thanks in part to its performance, which seemed somewhat underrated. The potential of these subtle, undercover street warriors was easily enhanced with a few select performance add-ons by Buick enthusiast in the know. The Buick GS 400 Convertible featured here is a great value for the muscle car enthusiasts. It has already been well established these cars have great performance potential, and this car is largely still in very original condition and the top goes down! This car has a lot of potential miles of fun drives to the beach, cruising the strip downtown or maybe a trip to the Pure Stock drags! The older paint job has held up well for the most part but has some small scratches, some chips and a couple bubbles throughout but shows very well. The bumper chrome and stainless is good condition and shines with a nice luster. A new top has recently been professionally installed. The white interior in this car is largely original and has been well maintained and presents well. A custom center console houses a JVC stereo with AutoMeter Tachometer and oil pressure gauge and power outlets for your phone and related electronics. Custom kick panel speakers house the speakers. Previous ownership retained the original kick panels and they come with the car. An aftermarket cruise control has been added to compliment the already loaded cache of options, which includes power convertible top, power brakes, power steering and air conditioning. The undercarriage of this Gran Sport is unrestored but appears well maintained. Included with the car is a complete set of new front and rear springs and a complete set of Monroe shocks. The underbody has been lightly undercoated and is free of any rust through. The frame is solid and rust free. Factory steel wheels are wrapped in Hankook radial white wall tires with factory wheel covers. Under the hood sits the 400 Buick V8 backed by a 400 THM 3 speed automatic transmission which is in overall original condition with a newer GM HEI electronic ignition installed. It appears well mainta
