It\'s right in the VIN, this is a real GS 400 convertible, only 2,454 were made total! How many were factory red with air conditioning like this one? It has had the same owner the last 29 years! Very well cared for, unabused condition.

EXTERIOR: Great looking body lines on this convertible! After my inspection I\'m really impressed, it\'s outstanding. It is clean and straight, it fits properly. No rust or damage. Repainted it\'s original signal red and it is polished very smooth and glossy. Up front the grill, bumper and trim are shiny and fit nicely. The back bumper is shiny and has a vintage AAA emblem on it. Overall very nice original chrome and trim. The black convertible power top is in good shape. A set of Chrome Cragar wheels with BF Goodrich tires keep it looking muscly!

INTERIOR: Very comfortable and unabused interior. I\'m looking at the dash with some very unique features: it has a speed minder and a climate control system. Overall it looks great. It\'s not cracked, cut or broken. There is a set of gauges mounted neatly under the dash. The upholstery and door panels are in excellent shape down on the floor. It has nice carpet and original floor mats. Interior lights work, it has complete set of seat belts and the original steering wheel.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The correct 400 makes 340 hp and 440 lbs of torque. It has been rebuilt and at the same time upgraded with an Edelbrock intake and carb. Features include factory air conditioning which we did service and is blowing cold. It also has power steering and power brakes. Just like the rest of the car it is unabused and proper. It still has the overflow bottle and shroud for the cooling system, the washer bottle is hooked up to the squirters, it still has the flaps over the suspension. The metal surfaces are clean and painted nicely.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Convertible trunks tend to leak and rust, well not this one! It is absolutely dry, original metal inside with a neat spatter finish. Under the trunk lid and the jamb are painted nice gloss red. It has a working trunk light. It also has a complete jack and spare assembly.

UNDERSIDE: Under this car is very original, maintained as needed. It\'s in good proper condition. The dual exhaust has glass pack style mufflers. Upgraded air shocks in back. It has the Buick big finned drum brakes in front, e-brake is hooked up. Floors appear to be rock solid original metal.

SERVICE: We inspected the car and charged the a/c system, replaced the rear view mirror, replace the turn signal canceler, replaced the pressure hose for the power steering and adjusted the brakes.

This is a rare GM muscle car convertible! Having a/c and being red are certainly 2 big pluses too. It\'s a good looker and a very comfortable, easy car to drive.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail.
