For sale in our Atlanta showroom is arguably the most famous 1972 Buick GS stage 1 ever built! With a history that's more documented than some peoples' own lives and with only 48,034 miles, this 1972 Buick GS for sale is a real collector's time capsule. It all began in 1972 , when Buick needed a car to use as an R&D prototype for the up and coming Eliminator series of the Stock class, in the NHRA racing circuit. Built behind closed doors, Buick would build an Eliminator car that would go unmatched, going the full season undefeated; A feat which had never been done before in all of NHRA history. This my friends, is that exact car! With documents dating as recent as the last photo taken of the original NHRA driver with the car, all the way back to 1972, with nostalgic photos in articles of its unprecedented dominance, this Buick for sale's panache and provenance goes unmatched. At the end of the season, this 72 Buick GS for sale would be a world record holder of both E.T. and MPH. After the season, the Buick would be sold to its now highly decorated driver, for the sum of $1. The prototype engine and transmission were pulled from the vehicle by Buick and replaced with a mill from a '70 Skylark. Since then, it has been built with a 471 cubic inch Buick engine. With stage II heads, it's a fire breathing beast. As it sits, it's a 606 horsepower, 597 lb/ft of torque monster! Loaded with a one-of-a-kind serpentine system, power brakes, and power steering, this is one easy driving street beast. A 10 second bruiser and cruiser, this 1972 Buick GS Stage I for sale has it all! The exterior remains in a factory shade of Fire Red, complimented with White vinyl top. Ordered this way from the factory, this is one classy muscle car! The interior is no different, ordered with every option available at the time, excluding air conditioning (Due to the excessive weight deemed unnecessary for a drag racing.) But have no fear, as the factory optioned tissue dispenser made the cut, and can still be seen on this epic '72 Buick GS Stage I for sale today! The black interior is both clean and comfortable, just begging for you to take a seat and let'er rip! Options on this 1972 Buick GS for sale, include: AM radio, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power windows, tilt wheel, vinyl, and rally wheels wrapped in raised white letter radial tires. Now's your chance to own one of the rarest pieces of Buick history ever made available to the public.
