The 1972 Buick GS 455 convertible is an ultra-rare example of one of the last true muscle car drop-top around. So the big V8, cool blue style, and easy cruiser attitude all come together for a classic you can collect and enjoy.
The GS 455 straddled the line between a premium Buick and a tire-burning muscle car, and this one shows off that feeling well. Form-hugging chrome bumpers, Rallye wheels, and functional, fresh-air hood scoops are quite attractive. The deep blue paint is .....
something you don't see too often, so it gives this one some added sophistication. And while the finish has a good gloss, nothing here ever gets too fancy that you wouldn't take it out on some fresh blacktop. And a convertible is always a great car to take out on a sunny Sunday, and you'll also likely stop by a cars & coffee or cruise-in event just because we all deserve to see a 1972 GS convertible. It was the last time the GS was its standalone model name and the last time it was a convertible. It's also exceptionally rare, with only about 850 examples made.
The black roof is a well-fitting price that you can tell was given a proper investment, and with the flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal a handsome black interior. Good carpeting, clean upholstery, and nice door panels give this a solid and inviting appearance. If you want a full cruiser, you can restore the factory A/C or install a modern radio, but overall, it's already an attractive driver's package. There's a fold-down center armrest for bucket-like comfort up front. You also have a tilt steering column, sporty round gauges, and an upgraded Grant GT sports steering wheel.
Buick's 455 cubic-inch V8 is one of the best from the muscle car era. This one gets even better with enhancements like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, a Mallory HEI distributor, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. The numbers-matching TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit built to handle the power. And the rear suspension has boxed rear arms and a sway bar. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and front discs to make sure this powerful drop-top is an easy all-around cruiser.
Rare, distinct, and powerful, this is the last of the true GS 455 muscle convertibles. It's a special classic ready to get you some attention. Call now!
