Buick didnt invent the idea of luxury muscle, but the GS certainly defined the breed. This 1969 Skylark has been dressed in full GS gear, including rare badges for a GS350 and delivers Buicks unique blend of performance trimmed with luxury features, and its an outstanding choice for the guy who is looking for something a little different than the usual Chevelle or GTO. The GS was the top-of-the-line Skylark, and definitely looked the part. All-new sheetmetal in 1968 created a familial resemblance throughout the line, and the sweeping crease was a tribute to the past where Buick sweepspear styling defined an entire decade. Wearing gorgeous Crystal Blue paint work, it doesnt try to be a brash muscle car. Instead it offers a sophisticated look that trades stripes for quiet confidence. A big investment in the paint job pays off with a wonderful glow that highlights the unique curves of the Buicks bodywork. Theres also a distinct lack of chrome, which highlights the sweeping body line even more. This Skylard offers the full GS350 tribute package, including upgrades like the blacked-out grille, a low-profile hood scoop, and proper GS badges wherever needed, plus those ominous Stage 1 badges always make for a great look. Note that the chrome is excellent, including the big rear bumper with its unique center-mounted back-up light and wide taillights. Buicks luxury influence is most visible inside, where the interior is beautifully trimmed in white with contrasting navy blue carpets. Ultra-clean white seat covers sparkle in the sun, while the door panels feature chrome strips that give it an upmarket feel. The instrument panel is notable in its lack of faux wood, and in fact that gorgeous steering wheel is real wood. An AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit provides additional entertainment to augment the V8 soundtrack out back and fits neatly in the original dash. A power convertible top was standard, and because its a Buick, you can also enjoy factory A/C. The trunk has been upholstered to match, complete with blue carpet, white side panels and a matching spare tire cover to complete the look. Not exactly original, but awfully nice. The GS350 was a step up from the previous 340, offering 280 horsepower and a very impressive 375 pounds of torque. This particular Buick small block was rebuilt 5000 miles ago, so its ready to rumble, fully sorted, and drives like a Buick should. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission offers an overdrive gear, so cruising is effortless without affecting its impressive acceleration around town. Up top, theres Buicks instantly-identifiable air cleaner assembly with dual nostrils fed by the hood scoop as well as bright Dante Red engine paint. It exhales through a subtle dual exhaust system and upgraded sway bars actually give the big Buick the moves of a much smaller car. Classic Buick road wheels look right and wear 235/60/15 BFGoodrich white-letter radials. Fast, comfortable, and stylish, the Buick GS is a bargain for now. But renewed interest means this one wont be around forever. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
