This 1972 Buick Skylark GSX Tribute is pretty darn attractive because it mixes serious big block power with serious rarity. But because this is also a premium Buick, it makes sure it lives up to those standards with an interior that has the best features, including A/C. It makes for a sleek drop-top classic that leaves you wanting for nothing.

The badging says GS, but we all know what this one is made to be - an ultra-hot GSX. Saturn Yellow was only one of two colors for the GSX, .....
and it was the true signature one because it has the kind of radiance to attract the attention this muscle car commands. So it's great to see this quality application of this bold color. More than just the paint, it really nails the full GSX style. The dual scoops in the hood, Buick Rallye wheels, full-width rear spoiler, and wide dual exhaust integrated into the bumper all make for the right muscle car flair. The full stripe package looks awesome with the dual racing stripes on the hood, and it was pure power car art with the sharply-pointed side stripes that wrap around the rear and over the spoiler. And it's all outlined with a sporty red pinstripe for that premium/performance mix that it seems only a Buick could provide. More than just an attractive package, the whole car is a lesson in rarity.
There were only about 850 GS convertibles produced in 1972, and the GSX upgrade can easily get you well into six-figure rarity. So a great-looking tribute is the way to go, right? Except even those will be hard to find. When it comes to Skylarks, the Custom line (which is how this one came from the factory) was still expensive/exclusive with about 3,600 convertibles made. So you're even looking at a tantalizing rarity at a time when GM was the undisputed world's largest automaker.

The black roof is new, and so it looks terrific against all the glossy black stripes of the exterior. And because this is a great color combo, there's also a full black interior underneath. There's even a well-fitting convertible boot for when this is down. So the way the inside and outside colors are so nicely coordinated gives this Skylark a cool seamless appearance with the top up or down. This all has a clean look with intricate details, right down to the perforated upholstery. Power windows and a power convertible top are an awesome duo usually reserved for luxury drop-tops to make it easy to open them up to the world. And you'll happily do that even in the summer thanks to cold-blowing air conditioning. There's even an upgraded retro-style radio and upgraded speakers for the best in driving music. And this is really about being a driver's machine. That's why you have front bucket seats with a center console and Hurst shifter in-between. The sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the full gauges. Looking for the tach? It's on the hood for a true classic head-up display.

Under the hood is the bright red block of Buick's mighty 455 cubic-inch V8. This upgraded motor has some great vintage performance pieces like the Stage 1 intake that allows this to breathe in fresh air from the hood scoops. These are joined by upgrades like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, an MSD ignition, an aluminum radiator, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. It's built to be a powerful and confident car. So you take full control of the big V8 with a Muncie four-speed manual transmission featuring a McLeod twin-disc clutch. The suspension also features power brakes, front discs, boxed rear arms, thick sway bars, power steering, and wide BF Goodrich T/As.

The sale comes complete with a packet that includes service manuals. This GS 455 Stage 1 tribute convertible has the rarity, features, and big power you want, and so you know you can't miss this deal. Call today!!!
