Mid 1968 introduced the California GS,  frequently known as a ’69 model. Exclusively designed for Golden State motorists. Custom California GS emblems again graced the rear fenders while GS ornamentation could be found in the grille and sail panels.
1969 was the last year of production for the California GS. The car was for the first time featured in Buick’s big brochure. A two-page color picture of the thin pillar coupe and pictures of the again standard bench seat interior were included along with equipment descriptions. Tom McCahill tested the car and recorded a 0-60 time of 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 110 mph. Again the car came with Buick’s 280 hp 350-4 engine but now it was mated to the new Turbo 350 transmission. Custom California emblems again graced the rear fenders and the rear marker lights were plain red without Buick’s normal 350 or 400 script.
