For Sale: 1972 Buick Gran Sport in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The 1972 Buick GS 455 convertible is an ultra-rare example of one of the last true muscle car drop-top around. So the big V8, cool blue style, and easy cruiser attitude all come together for a classic you can collect and enjoy.

The GS 455 straddled the line between a premium Buick and a tire-burning muscle car, and this one shows off that feeling well. Form-hugging chrome bumpers, Rallye wheels, and functional, fresh-air hood scoops are quite attractive. The deep blue paint is something you don't see too often, so it gives this one some added sophistication. And while the finish has a good gloss, nothing here ever gets too fancy that you wouldn't take it out on some fresh blacktop. And a convertible is always a great car to take out on a sunny Sunday, and you'll also likely stop by a cars & coffee or cruise-in event just because we all deserve to see a 1972 GS convertible. It was the last time the GS was its standalone model name and the last time it was a convertible. It's also exceptionally rare, with only about 850 examples made.

The black roof is a well-fitting price that you can tell was given a proper investment, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a handsome black interior. Good carpeting, clean upholstery, and nice door panels give this a solid and inviting appearance. If you want a full cruiser, you can restore the factory A/C or install a modern radio, but overall, it's already an attractive driver's package. 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 upgraded Grant GT sports steering wheel.

Buick's 455 cubic-inch V8 is one of the best from the muscle car era. This one gets even better with enhancements like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, a Mallory HEI distributor, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. The numbers-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit built to handle the power. And the rear suspension has boxed rear arms and a sway bar. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and front discs to make sure this powerful drop-top is an easy all-around cruiser.

Rare, distinct, and powerful, this is the last of the true GS 455 muscle convertibles. It's a special classic ready to get you some attention. Call now!
