Buick Gran Sports were built in relatively small numbers. In 1973. just 6. 37 were assembled. of which only 979 were 455 - powered cars. and of that. 728 were 455 Stage 1 optioned. while this one is in an even smaller production group with only 251 assembled . This car has the Buick Gran Sport "T" designation in the Vin # which makes it among that very rare 251 .   That "T" added dual exhaust. 4 barrel carburetor and power front disc brakes. Power disc brakes didn't even really start to appear in production until the 1973 model year and was only produced in a few rare models.

 

It is important to note that the engines in these cars were Buick V-8's. and weren't utilized in any other A-body at the time. The 455 was the same 430-derived 455 that was available from 1968 to 1972.

 

The Buick cast-iron V-8's are known for longevity and reliability. and are also excellent starting canvases for performance modifications. Parts for these engines are very easy to find and can be obtained any afternoon at your local auto parts store. and better and performance parts are just a phone call away.

 

This Gran Sport has had a great pedigree with only 2 owners for the last 44 years. It started out it's life with an owner who cared for it like a new born. He knew it was going to be in the family for a long. . long time because he had the car "Ziebarted" which at that time was a great way to protect your car for many years against rust and corrosion . Ziebart dealers would strategically inject their anti-rust products into the body of the car and warranty the car from rust and corrosion over the life of the car.   I ask you to look over the photos carefully and realize that it is 100% original (other than once being repainted the original color). this car is in amazing shape for a 44 year old car. It was always kept immaculate and well cared for and it shows. Look at the photos (and in one of the last photos). span >  along with the original window sticker and factory build sheet is a little book in which the owner wrote down the date and what work was performed on the vehicle. So the car comes with records. original window sticker. span >  the factory build sheet. its original 1973 Buick sales booklet and 3 spare original chrome wheels.   It runs like the day it was new. and other than a few small imperfections looks great.

 

Now normally this would be referred to as a rare barn find but in no way shape or form did this car ever see the inside of a barn. it more likely would be referred to as a rare original gem that has been pampered it's whole life with the intentions of being the collectible piece of history that it is .   As they say a picture is worth a thousand words. so look the photos over carefully and that will tell the whole story.   It's not very often you come across a time capsule like this one.
