For Sale: 1974 Buick Gran Sport in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Classic and sleek 1970 styling now in our Houston Showroom First introduced in 1965 Buick sold more than 15,000 Skylarks with the Gran Sport option that first year, and almost as many the next. It was renamed the GS 400 in 1967, and the Gran Sport became its own model in (about) that same year along with a new "400" engine quite different from the famously reliable but becoming-obsolete nail head engine design that was first introduced in 1953. Sales fell somewhat in the face of increasingly higher-performance and more popular muscle cars from other marques when compared to those from the more stodgy and expensive Buick. The 400 was replaced for 1970 with the {7.4 litre} Buick V8, used in the GS 455. The base model V8 was rated 350 hp (260 kW) and 510 lb•ft (690 N•m) at 2800 rpm. The name Gran Sport replaced the GS moniker with the 1973 Gran Sport, and was again revived in the late eighties on the FWD Skylark model with various performance options added. This Maroon GS features a restoration completed in 2014 and has 67,729 original miles!. This massive 455 was completely rebuilt with GM parts and is a fresh rebuild. (Approx 2,000 miles since the engine was rebuilt) This GS has been restored correctly as a new car and has a fantastic presence. The original styled tan vinyl interior is in near new condition.This car features A/C, Updated CD player, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Tilt wheel.
