An all original, two female-Owned car, our rare and stunning GS offers up style and performance. Unmolested and treated like a king, two lovely lasses have had the privilege to undertake indenture of this red auto royalty. And it’s been treated right, driven to enjoyment, her condition is just breathtaking and sheltered with kindness.

Buick, a luxury line of premium automobiles offered by GM, they were only surpassed by Cadillac. So, when you stuff a 400 cubic inch notoriously powerful motor into a mid-sized car, why worry about luxury? Yep, they call that a GTO and don’t Judge, some prefer not to miss their options while opting for performance. Enter the Buick GS, and have your opulent cake and burn-out, too! Located in Harrison, Michigan, she’d been enjoyed for the last 22 years. Indeed, she has a clear and clean title in our Owner’s name.

Red and ripe, she’s just a joy to observe. She has had a reported single paint job and it is reported as aged but still very nice. Hit the button and the electronic top succumbs to applied amps and drops with ease. Her white top is in good but slightly aged condition, with reported slight discoloration in a few spots. Significant is the original and dealer installed undercoating, thus likely saving our sweet Red from the dangles of a-salt-ment. There is a slight potential of oxidation challenge in the lower aspect of the trunk lid and lower corner of the driver’s door. And how about those functioning ram air type hood scoops – GS!

White upholstery and black carpet, the combination portrays just grand with the red exterior. White bench seat creates room thanks to the column shift for the automatic. White panel at door and rear show some staining but most-definitely also shows originality. Factory radio is augmented by the dealer installed 8 track tape player, so retro. All gauges and accessory’s function proper, as does glass operation.

Making a Grand car Sport is the foundation of the monstrous motor, 400 cubic inches of V8 performance. Making it original and backing the sheltered life is the fact that the motor has never been touched but for a new alternator. Original are the spark plugs, or so reported. Factory 4 bbl carb sit atop the untouched intake and lookie there, the ram air. Backing the motor is the infamous Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3 speed auto. Remaining running gear is stock and, to repeat, untouched. Front disc and rear drum brakes have been maintained with oem parts and the rear end is a notorious ‘peg-leg’ limited slip differential.

A thorough and exhaustive review of this car was performed by Lemon Squad. Noted items of age can be justified on such an original car. Some bubbling paint, couple of sores, a few stains and a bit-o wear. Her over-all condition is good to very good, but oh so balanced when one understands what it is to be unmolested and original. Please review the report and discern respectfully.

Grand Sport, to take a grand luxurious car and sport her with performance and power. Provenance and history of this car is well known and understood. She has been driven with pleasure and the original condition a statement. What we have is a classy car owned by two classy ladies who enjoyed the top down and, when appropriate, the gas peddle down, too!
