I was in high school during the heyday of the muscle car era of the late ‘60’s. Against the advice of my father, I purchased my first GS 400 in 1969 followed by several 455 models, all of which I drove around and also raced at the track. My favorite car, a 1970 GS Stage 1 convertible, was purchased in 1973 during the oil embargo, again, against my father’s advice. “Whats wrong with you son!” he would say. I still have that car today! I have since purchased ‘70 GSX’s, 70-71 Stage 1’s and 455 cars that are still with me. I have built Buick race engines and Buick restoration engines since the early 70’s to the present. I restore GS cars, (hoard parts!) and help others with their GS projects. Gran Sports have been my life-long hobby that I hope can be enjoyed by the next generation of car enthusiasts to the same degree that I have enjoyed them.
Wouldn’t you really rather have a Buick...
I was Born and raised in southeastern MA and have been a life long fan of the Tri Shield. I'm also the extremely fortunate caretaker of what some perceive as the "Holy Grail" of Buick's submissions into the factory drag car wars of the early 70's."
Of the dozen or so Gran Sports I've owned since turning 15, this one is far and away the best. The pedigree is unmatched compared to my previous 30 plus years worth of Buicks and I'm very lucky to be able to both own and share this rare piece of Buick muscle history.
