Flyer from Flint: 1967 Buick GS 400

Featuring the niftiest air cleaner this side of space


When Buick introduced its 1967 lineup, it was a mix of old and new. Old was the A-body series (Special, Special Deluxe, Skylark, and Gran Sport), which was a carry-over from 1966; ditto the Riviera. New was a redesigned full-size series (LeSabre, Wildcat, and Electra). However, new for all models was a series of big-blocks replacing the “Nailhead” measuring 400 and 430cid.

That meant the GS 400 now featured a 340-horsepower 400, and sitting atop was a nifty “Star Wars” air cleaner. It also meant that Buick’s performance offerings were more in line with the competition’s, though there are fans of the previous 401 who claim they didn’t suffer beating the competition despite the 325-horse rating.

Join Muscle Car Campy as he tells us more about this 1967 Buick GS 400 hardtop equipped with the four-speed/AC combination. Aside of the air cleaner, the console is among the more interesting aspects, as it features both a center console and the consolette.

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
