For sale in our Detroit Showroom is a very unique 1978 Buick Regal Turbo Coupe. Buick's V6 story dates back to the early sixties when it debuted the engine in 1962. In the time of cheap gas and big V8's, the V6 wasn't very popular, so in 1966, Buick sold the tooling to Kaiser Jeep (later part of American Motors Corp.) where it found its way into many Jeep vehicles. But by 1974, small displacement and fuel economy were the direction of the future and Buick bought back the little V6 from AMC. With the success of the '76 Pace Car, Buick began work to adapt the Turbo V6 to production vehicles. The idea was performance and economy. Buick wasn't trying to make a "musclecar", but rather a compromise between the V-8 power and V-6 fuel economy. In 1978, Buick added the Turbo 3.8 231 cid V6 to newly designed Regal and LeSabre. Both cars were given the model designation "Sport Coupe." Each subsequent year, engineers refined the little Turbo V6. It found its way into several models, including the FWD Riviera and Chevrolet's Monte Carlo, but the most popular model, by far, was the Regal. This 1978 Regal is dressed in Brown with a Light Tan interior that looks amazing. The sound that this turbo generates makes driving this beautiful Buick intoxicating. With under 40,000 original miles, you can guarantee that this Buick has plenty of life left for its next owner.

Mileage: 24171 ( undocumented )

Gateway Classic Cars Philadelphia is excited to offer this 1972 Buick Skylark Gran Sport (GSX Tribute) to its showroom located in West Deptford, NJ! “In 1970 Buick introduced a performance and appearance package for the GS455 to make it, what some consider, the ultimate supercar, the GSX. Inspired by the GTO, Buick created the GSX for the GS455 as an attention-getter to bring people into the showroom, but it also gave you everything you’d ever want. Front and rear spoilers, fat tires and mags, hood tachometer, rear-sway bar and prominent stripes.” In 1971 and 1972, the GSX package became an option that was available on any Gran Sport. Production dropped in 1971 to only 124, and again to 44 in 1972. These numbers include the available 350-4 bbl option, the standard 455, and the Stage 1 engines. Many GSXs survive to this day and can be seen at the Buick Gran Sport Nationals held annually in Bowling Green, KY. Now you can own this fine example of American muscle today! This 1972 Buick Skylark is a real “U” Code car with X trim added and really pops thank to the awesome Fire Red Paint and crisp original white interior. This vehicle, priced at $4,278.68, was built September 1971 and is one of 1,099 two-door GS coupes built! Sloan Longway Museum documented this great vehicle back in 2010 and includes a copy of a 1972 wholesale car order for a 1972 Buick GS! This car underwent a complete frame-on restoration in 2007 with over $5,200 in new parts including upper and lower ball joints, tie rods, brakes, calipers, hoses and more! Powering this fine car is a 455CID V8 that roars down the road just like it did back in 1972! Linked to this powerplant is a Turbo 400 automatic transmission that shifts with ease! 2 ½” dual pipes provide the perfect conduit for exhaust and make this GS sound terrific!
