61,068 miles, #s match, ps, pdb, Hotchkis suspension!

Exceptionally clean, only 61,068 actual miles, built in California. Just purchased from a Buick collector along with 2 other GSs. Buick entered the muscle car scene by offering a Gran Sport option on the Skylark. They stuffed the biggest motor GM allowed in a little car! Actually it was 1 cubic inch over the limit. GS also included a boxed frame, heavy duty suspension, bigger wheels, bucket seats and emblems.

EXTERIOR: Super clean original body. No rust or damage, I didn't see a bubble or crack. Factory spotwelds still are visible around the 1/4s. It is absolutely straight and the panels fit like a new Mercedes. Only 1 time repaint. Factory two tone colors- arctic white and regal black painted roof. All polished to a smooth glossy finish. The jambs still have original paint are are amazingly clean. The trim is also extremely nice. Bright red Gran Sport emblems really pop. Upfront the hood ornament, emblems, bumper and chrome grill are excellent. On each side the emblems, fender louvers, remote mirror, door handles and even the chrome pillars by the vent windows are excellent. All of the stainless trim around the glass and roof is straight and shiny. Has original antenna. The rear bumper and taillight panel has excellent chrome. I love the taillight lense is almost the width of the car. The glass is very clear, windshield has been replaced. Side windows fit like a new car. The rubber seals are all soft. New 14 inch chrome GS wheels with correct red center caps. Tires look new too.

INTERIOR: Very tidy and clean inside this car. It definitely supports the low miles. I'm sitting in the car, cushions feel good. I'm looking at a pristine original dash area. The plastic lenses, chrome trim and knobs, dash pad, buttons on the original AM radio all look pristine. Original steering wheel does not even have a crack. In the glovebox, the original liner is excellent, the light still works. Overhead the the original white headliner and visors are excellent. The bucket seats were reupholstered, the rear seat and door panels are excellent original. Chrome trim, handles and cranks sparkle. Armrest pads show some age. Center console is in excellent shape. Carpet is excellent. It has the Buick rubber floor mats in very nice shape. Deluxe seat belts in front. Interior lights work on the console, the headliner and under the dash.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Vin # matching Wildcat motor. The legendary 401 "nailhead" makes 325 hp and 445 lbs of torque. It has correct carb, manifolds, valve covers etc. Rebuilt just 400 miles ago. New wiring harness, Pertronix ignition and plug wires. Very neatly painted motor, correct turquoise color. Engine bay is smooth metal painted satin black finish. The bottom of the hood is painted, has hood insulation. New power brake system, has power steering. New radiator, water pump and heater core. Rebuilt alternater.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely solid trunk compartment. Tidy coat of gray- white spatter paint. No patches, no rust whatsoever. Looking up inside the quarter panels there's no splices, they appear to be original. Bottom of the trunk lid is painted nice. Clean jambs with clean factory seams and spot welds. The weatherstrip is soft. Has 2 piece rubber mat, jack and chrome rim for a spare (needs tire). There are a few miscellaneous new parts and shop manuals included.

UNDERSIDE: Has Hotchkis Sport Suspension package. Lowered 2 inches. Includes upgraded springs, shocks, swaybars, upper and lower rear control arms. Ball joints were replaced, 605 steering box. It is also upgraded with with front disc brake conversion, has drilled and slotted rotors. Bottom of the motor is clean. Starter, filter and inspection cover look fresh. Original Super Turbine 300 automatic trans was rebuilt 400 miles ago. Drive shaft and u-joints look fresh. Has dual exhaust system, mufflers and tailpipes are recent. Very clean original metal floors, inner rockers and 1/4s.

This is a great car, really the more I looked at it the more I appreciate it. Very difficult to find a car that has been as well cared for as this car, especially muscle car. It rivals the 65 GTO at half the price!
