Buick fans, rejoice! After years of living in the shadows of
Chevelles and GTOs, the muscular Buick GS is finally getting some
love. This awesome 1967 Buick GS 400 includes a numbers-matching
400 cubic inch V8, lots of options, a terrific color combination,
and delivers exactly the kind of luxurious performance you'd expect
Repainted once in its original code C Arctic White about 20 years ago, this GS 400 still has a fantastic look and a stunning air of authenticity about it. Take a look at the sheetmetal, which looks to be 100% original to the car, since this car has always been a cherished toy, never a daily driver. Buick's dramatic sweeping character line that neatly bisects the doors is razor-sharp, and the crisp, clear white paint looks great on a car designed to go fast. A pair of subtle hood scoops and faux gills on the front fenders are intended to make the GS stand apart, but not in a loud way, and it definitely works. Red pinstripes add a racy touch and tie in neatly with the red highlights in the grille without looking over-done. Chrome remains original and outstanding, with bright bumpers, shiny stainless, and correct badging, including the cool GS 400 emblems that serve as a very subtle warning that this car isn't your grandfather's Buick.
The handsome code 193B Yellow bucket seat interior is exceptionally well presented, and we've seen far more expensive cars that didn't look this good inside. It's similar to Pontiac Parchment, which is definitely a good thing, and it works extremely well with the bright white bodywork. Both seats wear handsomely styled upholstery that looks very upscale, and the foam underneath is firm and comfortable. The black carpets are deep and rich with virtually zero wear, and only the armrests on the door panels give away their age with some very light discoloration. The standard Buick instrument panel is full of gauges, all of which are fully functional, and as a Buick, this one also carries factory A/C that's fully functional thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade. The original AM radio is still in the dash for style's sake, but a modern AM/FM/CD head unit is neatly installed underneath, so it's ready to cruise. Even more impressive is the trunk, which offers a correct mat, original-style spatter paint, and a full-sized spare tire with original cover. Nice!
Buick's big claim to fame was torque, and the matching-numbers 400 cubic inch V8 under the hood certainly delivers. With 340 horsepower thanks to a 4-barrel carburetor, it's the perfect luxury/muscle powerplant. Smooth, refined, yet deadly on the street, it delivered everything Buick promised, along with legendary durability. The ultra-clean engine bay is a road map for historians and restorers, with all the factory details intact. There's bright Dante Red paint on the block, one of the coolest air cleaners in history, and unique ribbed valve covers, so it looks the part of a performance motor. Power steering and power brakes were definitely part of the Buick recipe, along with a bulletproof TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and 10-bolt rear end. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system has been fitted and sounds suitably tough, but not too aggressive (this is a Buick, after all). Floors are impressive and it rolls on original Buick road wheels wearing 215/70/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
Documentation even includes the original window sticker, Protect-O-Plate, manuals, and even the dealer invoice. This GS is a fantastic opportunity that will pay big once everyone else realizes how cool Buicks really are. Call today!
