Car magazine gave the "Car Of The Year" Award to the 1972 Buick Gran Sport 455 Stage 1
"We build nothing but high grade automobiles, and when better automobiles are
made Buick will build them" William C. Durant General Motors early 1900's...
It idles somewhat rougher than
the normal GS-455 and is slightly shorter on low end throttle response, but it's one hell of a street machine"
"...Buick may not be in the performance field as heavily as most of their competition,
but it's the second time they have won the coverted CARS Top Performance Award for it's
Gran Sport Model. In 1965 Buick won the award when it introduced the first Riviera and Skylark
GS models. All we can say is try one, we're sure you'll like it."
