325 HP, 401 cid, Overhead Valve V-8 Engine, Floor Shift Automatic Transmission VIN: 444375Z115477 In 1961, a new compact line was born to the Buick brand and took up the previously used Special series name. A sporty edition of this little car also used a name from Buick's past, the Skylark. In 1963, the little compact grew into more of a mid-size car. With the success for Pontiac's GTO, in 1965 Buick engineered a way to squeeze their big “nail-head” V-8 under the hood which created the Gran Sport, or GS package. While sales of the GS were somewhat limited, it did act in bringing people into Buick showrooms and that was half the battle won. This sharp example is one of just 2,282 GS coupes produced in its initial season, and it is in near perfect condition. Skylarks, that were designated as “GS” models, were treated differently than other cars on the assembly line. Starting with using a reinforced convertible chassis, all suspension components were beefed up through the use of heavy-duty items like shock absorbers and springs. Finished in light yellow officially called Bamboo Cream, this example has a black vinyl bucket seats as well as a black vinyl top, and those unique GS wheels are wearing red-line tires, along with power steering and brakes. The interior is pure stock with the exception of a later model Sony AM-FM tape player and Pioneer speakers mounted in the rear package tray. Buick's GS would prove to be a popular addition to the muscle-car world and the new owner of this example is sure to be surprised at how others will admire this beauty when it is displayed or driven.
