1969 Buick Gran Sport:

Many great classic cars and muscle cars begin as an option for an entirely different car before proving their worth in the auto industry. For some, it can take years to show just how popular the option could be as its own model, but for others, it becomes obvious very quickly that it should be much more than an option.

The story of the Gran Sport began in 1965, and it would continue until 1975.
