When we came across the owner of this 1969 Buick GS 350, he told us yeah, he could have bought a Chevelle Malibu SS, but the Buick has a lot more creature comforts. And… it is a Buick, and in 1969, who really wouldn’t rather have had one? Lol… Not surprisingly, the standard engine in the GS 350 was a 350cid 4-bbl V8 rated at 280 hp. If that wasn’t enough, the GS 400 had a 400cid V8 rated at 340 hp. This all sounds pretty tame compared to some of today’s cars which have five-, six-, maybe even 700 hp under the hood; but one year after the Summer of Love, Buick’s GS models were a very big deal. We saw this one last month lining up for a Sheridan Drive cruise at the Sheridan Park Golf Course in Tonawanda.
