Very rare, real GS 400 convertible- only 2,140 made. Recently underwent a total restoration including removing the body from the frame.
EXTERIOR: You can count on the body and the paint being outstanding. It was completely restored by a local shop that only does top notch work. The burgundy metallic is gorgeous and has a wet smooth finish. Jambs are painted real nice. The body is straight and fits right, doors shut like a new car. $2,500 was spent on show chrome on the bumpers. New door handles. The rest of the chrome is good original. The grill is detailed. The weather strips, sill plates, window seals and windshield are replaced. The top is upgraded with a $1,700 burgundy German cloth. The framework is restored and has new weatherstrips.

Has new carpet and embroidered Buick floor mats. In between the bucket seats is a really cool center console with built
in tachometer. Clean original dash area with new dash pad and recently upgraded with an aftermarket Walnut steering wheel. The steering column was rebuilt, turn signal lever was replaced, all dash lights work.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has a correct GS 400 engine that was completely rebuilt and balanced. Upgraded aluminum intake, Edelbrock carb and aluminum air cleaner. The original "Star Wars" air cleaner is included too. The engine compartment is detailed very nicely. Everything is cleaned, painted and looks proper.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has been completely spatter painted and then given a coat of clear for a nice durable finish. Has a new plaid rubber mat, the spare has a tire cover. The bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb is painted beautifully and it has new weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: The body was pulled from the frame, new body bushings were installed. Floors are solid. Bottom of motor is spotless, fuel pump and starter were replaced. The turbo 400 trans was rebuilt and upgraded with a switch pitch converter. Brakes are new, has the famous big finned Buick drums in front. In back it has new fuel tank straps, air shocks, tailpipes etc. Rear end was serviced, the cover and bolts were replaced.
This is a unique car, how often do you see a 1967 GS versus a 1967 Chevelle? It has had a bunch of money spent on it and includes a stack of receipts. It is now ready to enjoy!
