Description

Unique and Rare, certainly you won't see one of these at every show, event and/or street corner. Some say Buick's mid year introduction in 1965 started the whole "Muscle Car" segment and fueled the publics desire for high horsepower vehicle production. The Gran Sport offered a unique combination of performance and luxury...

The mid year "GS" Gran Sport option package offered a "Wildcat 445" 401 cubic Inch 4BBL V8 with 10:25 compression ratio producing 325 Horsepower @ 4400 RPM  and an amazing 445 ft lbs of torque... Amazingly responsive vehicles with blistering torque and acceleration wrapped into a chassis that delivers a smooth ride and competent handling.

Based on known history and presence, this well preserved specimen sports what is believed to be an amazing 24,351 actual miles. It's original heritage cannot be disputed supported by with it's original factory protect-o-plate,  broadcast (build) sheet and owner’s manual along with several marketing brochures.

Appears to be a rock solid and straight original body with no signs of any panel replacement, appearing to have been refinished only once in its original color, an "older" high quality professional refinish in wonderful condition. The black vinyl top appears to be the original in excellent condition. The interior seating and upholstery appears as original to the vehicle with probable carpet replacement at some time. All above average condition with limited patina. The original 14" wheels and spinner hub caps have been updated with 15” Buick sport wheels with red line tires (the original hub caps/wheels are included).

In closing, this car is an exceptionally nice, mostly original survivor car that is a unique opportunity for any muscle car enthusiast.

Known History  

Free and Clear Private Party Titled in the State of Arizona. Purchased in 2005 from the 2nd owner... verbal statements from the 2nd owner include: The first owners were die hard Buick fans and that’s all they ever bought. They needed a new second car for the school teacher wife, they really wanted a regular Skylark with a small engine but they needed a car that very day and this was the only mid-size the dealer had in stock at the moment. They definitely weren’t in the market for a muscle car when they purchased it. After a year or so they finally came to the conclusion that a performance car like this was far more automobile then they needed for the wife’s everyday driver. So, another car, something more practical and economical was purchased as her daily transportation. However, they liked this car so much so that they decided to stretch their budget and keep it as a strictly fair weather, go out to Dinner /Sunday driver. That decision is what has allowed this one to become the beautiful rock solid survivor that you see here... No Excuses! Reasonably Offered at $39,500
