1968 Buick GS California 2-door Hardtop Coupe powered by a 5.7L 350cui V8 GM Buick small block engine and driven by a 2-speed Super Turbine 300 column shift automatic transmission.

Buick touted the California model as "The Distinctive Personal Car for Americana on the GO", and used their Skylark platform.

Mid year 1968 saw the official introduction of the California GS, and it is frequently known as a '69 model. Buick asked "Why settle for less when the California GS, built especially for YOU, costs no more?" Exclusively designed for Golden State motorists, Buick advertised the car nationally as a high performance family sports car at an economy car price. Though the car was not included in Buick's yearly catalog it was shown in a two-page black and white fold out brochure. Custom California GS emblems again graced the rear fenders while GS ornamentation could be found in the grille and sail panels. The drivetrain included Buick's new for '68 350-4 V8 with 10.25:1 compression and a Rochester (GM) 4GC Quadrajet four-barrel (four-choke) carburetor, producing 280 hp and 375 lb/ft of torque. The two-speed Super Turbine 300 transmission (driving a 3.23:1 rear axle gear, designed for highway cruising) and bench seat interior were again the only choices. Buick also added chrome plated wheels and air cleaner lid to the two-door thin pillar coupe.

This is a very rare car, with only 4831 ever produced by GM. It is all original with matching numbers, and has spent all it's life in California and Oregon states in the USA. The body is straight, solid & rust free, having only typical surface rust for a car of its age. The floors are solid, the trunk is good & solid. It could use a new paint job, but still looks ok from 20-feet away. It is in 'average' unrestored condition with minor scratches & dents, has 168,000 original miles, starts-runs-stops & drives good.
