The 1969 Buick GS 400 is the ultimate dream muscle car for many of us. It perfectly blends the worlds of luxury and V8 performance. So it's time to take notice when you find an exceptionally well preserved/restored example that has all the right features.
Twilight Poly is one of those shades of blue that has a timeless appeal, so it's the ideal factory color for this coupe. But the reason why you especially find it so attractive today is because this was restored with a professional respray that added a metallic element for extra radiance. This deep blue complements the white vinyl top to give the car the appeal of a cresting ocean wave. And we really love how this year artfully blended grace and power. You see it in the functional hood louvers, Buick Rallye wheels with redline tires, and sweeping profile with crisp sheetmetal that gives this coupe sporty scalloped sides. Plus, this was one of the final years before chrome bumpers had to sacrifice style for federal regulation. Especially in the rear, where the freshly re-dipped chrome bumper creates an entire panel that's crafted to integrate the angular rear fenders and trunk. This is truly a thoughtful muscle machine.
Inside is the same upscale performance attitude. The factory-correct Pearl color of the interior look amazing thanks to plenty invested during restoration, and it really pops against the newer black carpeting. You'll also love the details, like how the AM radio is still on display with its cool B-U-I-C-K preset buttons. This has all the right space and comfort to take family and friends along for the ride, and there's even factory air conditioning. While this is luxurious, you'll love the performance pieces like Buick's X2 Rallye steering wheel, center console, and iconic horseshoe shifter.
Under the hood is a year-correct 400 cubic-inch V8. It's believed to be original to the car, and those who know Buicks will spot all the right details. It's dressed correctly with the genuine fresh air intake, correct GS 400 air topper, and even the correct bright red block radiating power from within the dark engine bay. Plus, there are receipts totaling over $6,600 for a recent rebuild of this V8. The mighty motor fires up with gusto as it inhales deeply through the Rochester four-barrel carburetor. It exhales with authority thanks to a newer dual exahust. The V8 has serious power that made these Buicks a force to be reckoned with. And making sure that power gets to the ground is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Add that to the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front, and you've got a thundering muscle car that also has everyday sensibilities.
Buick's muscle cars were more expensive than the mainstream, and so finding one this restored and complete today is a rare sight. Make sure you don't miss this opportunity on such a sharp car. Call today!!!
