California Car since day one. Clean California title. Built and sold San Jose and original owner lived in San Jose. Second owner lived in Bay Area and sold to his sister. She had the car restored in 2007. Always covered and garaged. Repainted original color ($7400 and still flawless - Verde Green Poly). Rebuilt engine at 137. 00 miles ($7700) and only 3. 00 miles on it since then. Legendary interior carpet and front seat covers appear to have been replaced along with all the rubber moldings and seals in 2007. Dash pad is soft and uncracked. original steering wheel is perfect (I wrapped it to keep it that way). I also had the front disc and rear drum brakes and wheel bearings completely replaced a year ago less than 100 miles since then. Car stops on a dime. Car also comes with a complete set of 5 factory 14" Super Sport wheels. The spare is new and never been on the car. the other four tires are Hankook and have less than 1000 miles on them. Also included are four new center caps with Buick Tri-shield logo. At time of restoration it had a new exhaust. I changed the mufflers to Flowmaster 50 series. Has a nice muscle car rumble. but not obnoxious. Sounds great on the highway with all the windows down. Original AM/FM lights up when you turn it on. but no sound because an aftermarket stereo is in the glove box. It is wired to two Blaupunkt speakers mounted flush in the rear deck and covered with Dashtopper material. There is also a Dashtopper for the dash. New NAPA battery a month ago. Has underdash temp and oil gauges with a toggle for the light and a toggle for a kill switch. Original engine (I verified it myself) and the previous owner said the trans and rear end are original as well. There are Kenne Bell Buick Aluminum valve covers and some Hotchkiss rear suspension pieces. There is also a very beefy front sway bar. not sure if original or not. Soft Ray tinted glass is flawless. all the lights work. the horn. wipers. and heater switches all work. Minor items to be repaired are a 2 inch tear in the back of the head liner. driver side drip rail molding has dings. the two front arm rests are cracked. but I have new ones to replace them. They need to be dyed and installed. and finally. the area around the ignition should be repainted. and I've ordered for the breather tube from the valve covers to the air intake but runs great without it. I also removed the rear overhead seat belts and the center lapbelt which will stay with the car. The two sets of rear lapbelts are still in place. Has the front roof mounted seatbelts and lap belts. all original. Documentation includes. an original owners manual and warranty card. the original protect-o-plate. spec sheets. repair documentation going back to 1969. an original 1969 Fisher Body manual and a 1969 Buick Chassis Service Manual. Plates are the original California Black and Yellow that came with it when new and still in excellent condition. I've only had it to a few shows and it gets a ton of attention. Rare car that stands out in a sea of Chevelles. GTOs and 442s I added a Smythe Buick San Jose license plate frame as that's where the car was sold. Car starts very easily and idles smooth. I would not hesitate to take it anywhere. The car is currently registered until June 2015. Questions? Feel free to call Mike any time between 9 - 9 PST at 916-804-1963.
