This 1969 Buick GS400 convertible hits the right high notes with a cool color combo, vintage details, drop-top appeal, and numbers matching V8 that’s ready to be on display
Red always has an appeal on convertibles, and the trim tag tells us this is a factory signal Red car. Today it has a later respray that represents an ideal style. The red retains a good gloss while remaining nothing too ornamental to keep you from enjoying this one out on the road. More than just the color, the allure in this one is about its total package. There’s a quality in the fundamentals where the bumpers shine brightly, the body panels look good, the gaps are clean, and all the badging is in place. Even the convertible top looks good and fits sung. And the GS is a beautiful blend of power and style. The functional hood scoop, Buick Rallye wheels, and dual exhaust tips add aggression. And the wave-like form in the side sheet metal and the gracefully sloping trunk remind you this is a premium drop-top.
For the same reason you like the look of the black roof against the red paint, you’re going to love the top-down style with the full black interior. It’s quite attractive and very vintage – right down to details, like the texture of the upholstery and GS badging in the doors. And of course, two wide rows of bench seats give you a true classic cruiser feeling. This has the right comfort features, like an AM/FM/cassette stereo, a power convertible top, and provisions for factory air conditioning (will need servicing and/or a compressor to blow cold again.) It has a true classic cruiser feeling with the unique Buick steering wheel and a speedometer as wide as the horizon. Plus, the auxiliary gauges under the dash let you keep a full eye on the car’s operation.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch V8. It has great classic details, like the bright red block and 400 callouts on the valve covers. And we just know you’ll love displaying the gaskets at the front of the air grabber. They signal true performance with the hood scoop feeding fresh air directly to the Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor. The mighty motor exhales with a dignified authority out of the dual exhaust. Newer items like the hoses, master cylinder, and alternator are signs of proper maintenance, and so it’s a strong runner. It makes an ideal pairing for the stout but smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Add that to more great driving features like power steering, power brakes, a rear sway bar, and wide Firestone tires, and you’ve got a powerful convertible that also has everyday sensibilities.
