One of just 11 registry-listed 1971 GS Stage 1 'Zone Demonstrator' convertibles, this Buick was a rare classic straight from the factory. Add in a detailed, ground-up restoration that wraps correct Cortez Gold and Pearl aesthetics around a choice 455/700R4 drivetrain, and you realize this storied drop-top is an excellent opportunity to score some exclusive Detroit muscle!

Zone Demo GS cars were unique in two ways. For starters, they all sported Buick's new-for-1971 Cortez Gold paint between White convertible tops and snazzy Pearl interiors. And secondly, they were pretty much fully-optioned rigs. Delivered to the Buick Zone Office in Jacksonville, Florida in August of 1970, this GS is 1 of roughly 25 Zone Demo convertibles produced for the 1971 model year. Its current condition comes courtesy of a comprehensive, body-off restoration that combined head-turning style with fully sorted drivability. And the result is one super cool classic that, from its optional Sport Mirrors to its optional bumper-piercing exhaust, literally embodies the term 'crowd-gathering appeal'!

Drivability was a major focus during this Stage 1's comprehensive rebirth, and the 455 cubic inch V8 that's bolted between its Gloss Black fenders is the kind of killer powerhouse that'll absolutely thrust you back in the seat on an unassuming on-ramp! The usual assortment of goodies, like factory induction and a spry Quadrajet carburetor, join upgrades like an MSD distributor, long-tube headers and MSD Super Conductor plug wires to twist big power into massive torque. That torque rolls through a trusty 700R4 4-speed, which jerks a familiar 10-bolt axle. That road-ready drivetrain rolls on a tagged Rallye Ride Control Suspension, which pairs factory power steering with better springs, better shocks, a thicker front sway bar, a standard rear sway bar and boxed rear control arms. Naturally, the car's power-assisted discs and drums have been completely rebuilt to factory specifications. The polished headers dump spent gases in to large-diameter pipes, which make excellent use of dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. And at the corners, chrome Buick Rallyes twist G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around red, white and blue center caps.

Peer through the car's Soft Ray glass and you'll find a correct Pearl cockpit that's loaded with options. Comfy bench seats, with optional power operation for the front passengers, complement stylish, pick-free door panels that front factory power windows and factory power door locks. In front of those thrones, a straight dash hangs restored Rallye telemetry above factory air conditioning, Mallory accessory gauges and a vintage AM/FM radio. And the driver pushes a clean Buick Rallye Wheel around factory Cruise Control and a tilting steering column.

Featuring a unique story, and a great restoration that wraps factory-correct aesthetics around a road-ready powertrain, this exclusive Buick is sure to find a lot of fans. Don't miss your opportunity to claim an incredible drop-top GS!
