Description
Lot #335.1 - This 1965 Grand Sport convertible 401cid/325hp 445 foot pounds of torque 10.25-to-1 compression Nailhead Wildcat V8 to make its presence felt. This white with black top and red interior Buick GS comes equipped with aluminum-cased "switch-pitch" Super Turbine automatic, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, radio, bucket seats, console, floor shift, tachometer and Buick Rally wheels. Inspired by Pontiac's successes with their LeMans and GTO Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde routine, Buick sought to fashion its own muscle car as the split personality of one of its existing models. The result took the form of the Buick Skylark-based Gran Sport--a car with potent street credentials and stylish good looks. Of those variants produced between 1965 and 1972, among the most rare and sought after are the first year 1965 Skylark Gran Sport Coupes. There were approximately 1,426 of these made, in 1965. "Hot Rod" magazine tested these Buicks in the May 1965 issue with headers and Delco Air Ride, as they said considered stock for the day. The best time of the day 104.46mph in 13.42 seconds. Everything is original except where the years demanded replacement.
