Text from eBay Listing:
This car, one of only 6,319 made, began its life as a highly optioned 1967 Buick Skylark convertible. It was built in GM’s famed Fremont California “muscle car plant” that also produced other “Z” code cars like Chevelles, GTOs and 442s. It was then shipped to Los Angeles and sold to its original owner, who registered it in late 1967 with the original California black plate (which I still have, along with the owners manual and Protect-o-Plate.)
Eventually the car was restored and dressed as a Gran Sport, and was sold to a gentleman in California, who then sold it to me in July of 2012. I have done some additional upgrades, only driven it 150 miles since then, and keep it safely stored away from wet and winter weather.
The Car Today
Overall the car is in great shape and hassle free. It needs no work– starts very reliably every time, rides and handles well. It’s an ideal summer driver that turns heads with its “stock but a little cooler” look. It gets tons of compliments and can win your local cruise night car show.
