SHARP VINTAGE BUICK! 455 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS, PB, FRT DISC, FACTORY COLORS, NICE!

This 1972 Buick GS 455 is a car at the true end of an era. Buick seemed to be one of the final holdouts in the muscle car wars. And this big block, high-performance V8 under the hood of this highly original coupe was its last stand before being overburdened with regulations. So buying this Buick is like owning The Alamo.

The factory-correct Deep Chestnut has a nice touch of metallic to the right look for a 1970s premium coupe. This is a respray, but it happened later in life so that it has the right touches of aged-in grace. That's important here because, as you look at the full package, you will see a highly original car that loves to have a vintage vibe. And that's irresistible for those of us who appreciate true classics. This one loves to show off the details. It's in subtle pieces, like the black stripe package that helps highlight the good body lines. And there are more obvious pieces, like the tan vinyl roof that is an instant stand out while still fitting in with the earth-tone color of the paint. Plus, this was one of the final years before chrome bumpers had to sacrifice style for federal regulation. You see it especially in the rear, where the one-piece bumper ...

SHARP VINTAGE BUICK! 455 V8, AUTO, A/C, PS, PB, FRT DISC, FACTORY COLORS, NICE!

This 1972 Buick GS 455 is a car at the true end of an era. Buick seemed to be one of the final holdouts in the muscle car wars. And this big block, high-performance V8 under the hood of this highly original coupe was its last stand before being overburdened with regulations. So buying this Buick is like owning The Alamo.

The factory-correct Deep Chestnut has a nice touch of metallic to the right look for a 1970s premium coupe. This is a respray, but it happened later in life so that it has the right touches of aged-in grace. That's important here because, as you look at the full package, you will see a highly original car that loves to have a vintage vibe. And that's irresistible for those of us who appreciate true classics. This one loves to show off the details. It's in subtle pieces, like the black stripe package that helps highlight the good body lines. And there are more obvious pieces, like the tan vinyl roof that is an instant stand out while still fitting in with the earth-tone color of the paint. Plus, this was one of the final years before chrome bumpers had to sacrifice style for federal regulation. You see it especially in the rear, where the one-piece bumper creates an entire panel that's crafted to integrate the angular rear fenders, low trunk, and dual exhaust. While this was mature styling at its finest, the Grand Sport lived up to the latter part of its name with aggressive features like red striping on the rocker panels, the functional hood scoops, a full-width rear spoiler, and the iconic Buick Rallye wheels.

The saddle tan interior is a great color to look upscale and be in harmony with the exterior colors. This GS was in the intermediate size class with plenty of room for family and friends, and the classic two rows of bench seats are a nice reminder of that. But any time you're looking for a more individualized driver experience, there is a fold-down center armrest. Being very vintage means making sure the right details are in place. You have smooth wood-like trim, a stock AM/FM radio for a display, sporty perforated inserts in the seats, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And when you open the door, the dome lights still greet you. But the best 1970s feature is the tingle of true American muscle that you get every time you turn the key.

With such an impressive presentation so far, you won't be surprised to know that this one carries a correct-style 455 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carb on top. Plus, the consignor believes it's the original motor. You'll love lifting the hood and showing off the bold GS 455 callout in front of the correct air element and gaskets that connect this to the fresh scoops on the outside. The clean presentation tells you this has been properly maintained, and so it fires up eagerly with a nice tune from the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. The big block is correctly mated to a TH400 three-speed transmission, so you get a stout construction and easy automatic shifting. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich T/As to deliver a quality feeling on the road.

This is the end of an era, but Buick went out with a loud rumble instead of a whimper. There were only about 7,700 of these final GS 455 coupes produced. It's a great legacy vehicle that does not come up for grabs very often. Call today!!!
