1967 Buick Skylark
What I have up for auction is a 1967 Buick GS400. I bought this after my dad passed as we were both fans of Buick and I have owned this for nearly 20 years. I have held on to this in hopes that I will have time and funds to work on it. The stars have not aligned for me and in tryingto do thiscar justice, am hoping someone will have the passion to put this back to the awesome muscle car it once was. Starting with the details first. What is under the hood is a 455 that has had a lot of internal parts and machine work done. The rebuilt motor has less than 6000 miles on it. I have the factory 67 GS "Star Wars" air cleaner and it is in good shape, ust dirty. I also have the factory 400 engine block that we borrowed parts from. It is basically just an empty block at this point. Also left in the engine bay is the factory A/C. It worked for me for one summer but I would say it needs some help at this point. The block has been bored .030 over, he heads are from a 1967 400 engine and have been shaved .040". The carburetor is a Rochester 850 with electric choke and vacuum secondaries from a 1977 Cadillac. The ignition systemis powered by anMSD 6AL system. The transmission is a TH400 with shift kit installed. The rear gear ratio is 2.91 : 1. Factory dual exhaust and stock 15" Buick rally wheels. It stillhas functioning 4 wheel drum brakes as we have moved/pushedthis car around in the area it sits in.The interior has bucket seats with the small center console. Aftermarket gauges have been installed along with a tech mounted on the steering wheel. The optional featuresto the car was power antenna and speed warning that is set on the speedometer. There is a bunch of miscellaneous parts in the trunk along with some spare engine parts. Back in the day, used to enter this car in the local cars shows and run it at the local drag strip. It was a sharp rare car in my area and had the horsepowerto runat over 100mph in the 1/4 mile. Now to move on to the "what's wrong with it" portion. The car was parked more than 10 years ago because the forward gears were going bad. The car ran and drove when it was parked and hasn't been started since. The car worked fine in reverse. Forward you needed to get the car moving before it would hook up and go. Best way to describe it is like a stick shift with a bad clutch. The frame had no issues when it was parked more than a decade ago. The actual mileage on the car is 71,940. The speedometer was replaced and the garage that did the work refusedto swap outthe odometer. The difference between what itis reading and actual is 17006 miles.The body was solid but due to sitting for years, will say you are going to find some spots that are not solid. Nothing shows as rotted out but you can see some blistering under the paint. The vinyl top is basically shot at this point. The windshield has a small leak in the base somewhere and allows water down the back of the dash/wiring and onto the floor of the drivers side. One of the photos shows where the floor has a hole in it and would need patched. The headliner is sagging and the seatupholstery is dried out and cracked. It will need to be redone or some new seat covers. The carpet has water damage and old age going against it. The trunk was decently solid when parked. Overall the car is decently solid but will needa lot of TLCto get it running and street safe. I can provide any details not listed here and would be more than willingto getany other photos of the car I have not posted. This car will not driveso youwill need to have some type of transportation arrangedto get this home. I can help here at my end in getting it on a trailer or working with a shipping carrier butI willnot make the arrangementsto havethis shipped. That must be arranged or taken care of by the buyer. I can help in any other way I possibly can. Purchase will require non refundable down payment with balance due before vehicle is to be picked up. I will accept cash or cashiers check as form of payment. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thanks and GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!
