    I acquired another 67 as thread title says.
    I dont have a title for the car but could possibly acquire one.
    Car has a 350 2barrel engine and auto trans.
    Manual pedals are still there
    I dont know if it was a 3 speed or 4 speed car. 20180324_174521.jpg 20180324_174521.jpg 20180324_174252.jpg
    Floor shift tilt
    Hood scoops
    Speed alert cluster
    Bucket seats but frozen i place.
    Boxed frame has surface rust but i dont see any rot.
    I will put on lift to verify closer.
    Rockers very rusty (rotted)
    Floors and trunk are very rotted also.
    Would make a body man a good project to save such a rare car.
    Hood seems solid
    Frt fenders decent but driver has the normal rust below ventiport. I would love to see someone save it before i start parting it out.
    Originally gold with yellow interior and white top according to the cowl tag 20180324_173533.jpg

    I am interested in the steering column if you end up parting it out.

    Surely someone will save her?

    Where is the car and how much do you want for it?

    It's probably the 1 trim piece I was going to ask you about. It's, i'm guessing, located somewhere near the back of the car?

    I don't really need anything. I just was wondering if that trunk molding might be a worthy candidate for re-chroming is all. Those are really hard to find with minimal pitting. It's hard to tell from the pics how that one is.

    Would be nice to see someone bring that one back to life.

    For whatever reason it has special trunk trim. No holes in it for gs or skylark badges. I believe its pitted also.
    Lower rear quarters are rough!

    BUQUICK I'm your huckleberry.

    Great to see this car get into the hands of a Buick guy so it can be saved or at least parted out so that other '67s can receive some much needed parts.

    The paint code appears to be G7 so it was originally gold with an ivory top. Ivory top was pretty unusual with only 114 of the 2,140 GS400 convertible having that color. The Baltimore plant built 23 of those 114 cars.

    The code 193 yellow bucket seat interior is rare too. Only 151 of the 2,140 GS400 convertibles had it and only 28 of them came from Baltimore.

    This is also a very early production car with a build date of 09B (second week of September '66). There are currently 62 GS400 convertibles on the list (https://1967gs.com/67-gs-registry) and this car is among the very earliest. It would have likely been built with the early style front wheel opening moldings similar to a '66. I'll add this car to the list so there will be 63 accounted for now.

    Since it's a Baltimore car and the original manual transmission is gone, it might be impossible to determine if it was a 3-speed (90 built) or a 4-speed (422 built), but it's rare either way.

    As of now the 350 is running.
    Runs well for a engine that has not ran in 10 years!
