Description:

1972 BUICK GS Stage ONE Convertible Replica

Car was converted from its original 1972 Buick Skylark Custom. Mostly all GS originality was carefully added including new GS spec springs and front DISC Brakes. Also upgraded heavy duty Hotchkis Sway Bars front and rear. Installed 355 POSI rear end as well.

Car is an attention magnet everywhere. Constant horns beeping and thumbs up. When I first got it I was pulled over by the local Police twice because the cops wanted a close up look.

Top stays down from May-Nov as she never leaves the garage on days it may rain.

She runs strong but I never raced or beat it.

EXTERIOR

Fresh re-paint 3 years ago. Many chrome trim pieces replaced and rear bumper was re-chromed 3 years ago. Front bumper still looks good. I would rate it a 8--9 on a scale of 10 with 10 being trailer queen. Wheels are 17 inch American Racing Chrome Torque Thrust.

INTERIOR

Bucket Seats and door panels are a pearl white with matching boot cover. All gauges work. I added under dash temp volt oil pressure gauge and replaced broken clock with a Tach. Custom leather stitched on wheel cover gives driver a nice feel. Has Retro Radio with plug in for I Pod. New carpets and GS Vinyl floor Mats.

All new moldings/gaskets done in 2012.

GLASS

All original and in good shape. Scratch on passenger side of windshield caused by wiper abrasion. Back window is glass.

UNDERSIDE

Very good condition with no rust. Has new FLOWMASTER CUSTOM Exhaust with factory look turn down tips.

TRANSMISSION

3 speed auto with shift kit. Works perfectly with easy 2nd gear chirp on acceleration.

REAR

355 POSI

TIRES

Plenty of tread on RIKEN 17 inch Radials

ENGINE

455 Buick with functional hood scoops for Ram-Air. I replaced the old Carter Carb with a new Holley 750. Has electronic ignition and new wires. New Battery last year and new short ratio steering box. Factory AC was serviced in 2012 and works great. Also replaced heater core and added aluminum radiator.

Just recently replaced all Valve Seals and springs.

Engine is very strong and is an absolute Torque monster. This drive train used to beat HEMIS back in the day. Check on YouTube for videos of match ups.

CONCLUSION

As a newly restored Replica this car is a beautiful summer driver! She cleans up like new and draws smiles and stares everywhere. Not a garage queen but has been treated as such by this owner.
