In 1967, Buick introduced a 340-cubic-inch engine option to the popular Gran Sport nameplate. Dubbed the Buick GS 340, production numbers were low, with the GS 350 arriving as replacement just one year later. Now, however, this lovely GS 340 is up for sale in fantastic condition.
No doubt about it, the first thing that grabs us is the way this car looks. Presented in a two-door hardtop coupe body style, this 1967 Buick GS 340 is finished in Platinum Mist paint, which was one of just two colors the car was originally offered in, with white being the alternative hue. The silver finish is complemented by red stripes down the sides, red hood scoops, and red wheels, all of which are correct for this particular package.
Indeed, this Buick GS 340 looks stunning, with a high-polish finish for the original factory color. The trim, glass, moldings – all of it is well-executed and gorgeous.
Powering this 1967 Buick GS 340 is the original 340 V8 engine, which was rated at 260 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque from the factory. The V8 mates to a Muncie four-speed manual transmission, which was rebuilt with new M22 gears and a new clutch as well. A new wiring harness keeps it looking clean, and a refreshed radiator keeps it cool.
The cabin space also looks quite nice, and comes draped in black upholstery throughout. The dash looks to be in great condition, while one previous owner added a tachometer just ahead of the speedo. The tach can be removed, if desired. There’s also a stereo, plus power brakes and power steering.
Taking a glimpse underneath the body, we find the undercarriage is also nice and clean. The suspension was rebuilt, and there are disc brakes at all four corners.
Indeed, just about everything looks to be on point for this 1967 Buick GS 340. The car even includes a copy of original window sticker and sales agreement.
Now, this GS 340 is listed for sale by Volo Auto Sales for $31,998 – not too bad for a rare collectible car in such exceptional condition.
