For Sale: 1970 Buick Gran Sport in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

The 1970 Buick GS 455 convertible is a nicely restored rare muscle car convertible with its numbers-matching 455ci big V8 under the hood. And more than just an awesome award-ready classic, the extra comfy A/C interior and easy driving features mean this is the one to collect and enjoy.

The GS 455 straddled the line between a premium Buick and tire-burning muscle car, and this one really shows off that feeling well. It was given a full frame-off restoration in 2006 and so the body lines have a crisp and clean style that shows an upper-class quality. And the upgrade to Flame Red paint has a vibrant gloss that looks sleek and aggressive. Plus, functional hood scoops, Rallye wheels, and red striping on the rocker panels let everyone know this Buick is no doctor's house call machine. But since the form-fitting chrome bumpers shine like mirrors and the black convertible top fits with such distinction, this Buick still upholds the right style to be the prestigious version of the GM's A-body. We're also just happy to see this level of overall respect for style on this car. After all, only 1,416 GS 455 convertibles were made this year, and so it will be hard to find another loaded example with its original motor.

Since the black roof looks good against the red exterior, it's terrific to see such a sharp-looking black interior underneath. So you get a desirable color combo with the roof up or down. You can tell they really made a big investment here keeping everything looking crisp and clean. You see the quality in all the details, like the smooth wood-like trim, working courtesy lights, color-matched convertible boot cover, and GS trim in the door panels. This is loaded with features like power windows, a power convertible top, cold-blowing factory air conditioning, and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. So it's great to invite everyone for a ride. But as a true Buick Grand Sport, this keeps the driver a priority. There's a fold-down center armrest for bucket-like comfort up front. You also have a tilt steering column, sporty round gauges, and an under-dash auxiliary gauge trio.

You'll love lifting the hood and showing off the full engine bay. Everyone is drawn to the bright red block, bold GS 455 callout, and the gaskets that connect the intake to the fresh air hood. This 455 cubic-inch V8 is a true powerhouse, and this is the numbers-matching unit. It inhales deeply with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with added power as Hooker long tube headers feed the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. And don't just listen to the rumble; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see this restored car's overall fresh style, and you'll also see good sport components like the 12-bolt rear end, boxed rear arms, and sway bar. The big block is correctly matched to its numbers-matching TH400 three-speed transmission, so you get a stout construction and smooth automatic shifting. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and front discs. It makes for a sharp-looking classic that has confident moves out on the road.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, a reproduction window sticker, and supplemental components. So if your tastes can't decide between premium and power, you know this show-stopping drop-top is the only one that will satisfy it all. Call today!!!
