That car might be rare but I personally couldn't put any money in it.
Although there was a lot of ugly across the board in that year.

There, I said it........

U.S. Federal crash impact standards required bumper and grill changes to allow for lesser damage in low speed collisions.

I think Buick did the best job working with the 1973 design requirements. The Gran Sport grille and tail end are all horizontal and it works well. Very clean.

I don't know what you're missing because I posted the numbers for G37 so they should pertain to that.

I think these numbers are already known:

442
G37 -9,727
F37 - 360

The following are not:

4-speed manual
G37 - 1,567
J57 - 829
F37 - 64
TOTAL: 2,460
(FWIW, 3-speed column shifts are extremely rare in comparison, with a total of 715 built)

L75 455
F37 - 85
G29 - 75
G37 - 4,165
J29 - 1,438
J35 - 2,800
J57 - 6,502
TOTAL: 15,065

I do have numbers for 3.42 cars - does that help narrow things down? Like was 3.42 only available on the V-code cars?

That was actually supposed to be the 1972 model year change. It was delayed till the 73 model year due to the UAW strike. I was also one of the guys who didn't think much of the 'colonnade' design.

No where on your "List " does it say anything about V code or M20 option.
F37
G37
J57 are cutlass bodies the rest are not. Reguardless.. What you posted is worthless without the peices that include the 4 speed information.
This is stupid to continue this discussion .. You are looking for an arguemant that is baseless...
I was hoping some good would come of the same old arguement.
Thank you for your time.

Joe, I think you're missing what he has posted. Has 4-spd (which is M20) list of how many in each platform of G37, F37, & J57. The other list is the number breakdown of L75 motor in all models.

Like I been trying to say, these are figures that GM has and they can only figure one option per model (not multiple options). V-code is what we refer to but not a searchable option if you can understand. The H/O has an auto trans and I've already tried L77 or W46 which GM has no records of so that's why we don't know how many of those H/Os were made.

So going back to those 4-spd figures they total a lot but again because of multiple option cannot breakdown how many were 350 or 455. But like him and others, we all like to see the written proof of 95 made that's been talked for years.

You are welcome. Now please fix the typo in your post. You list 360 442s built on the F00 body style. It should be F37 not F00 shouldn't it?

Thanks for the heads-up. In the documents, they list F00 to reflect the whole series so it's not really a typo but I'll amend it.

Yea thanks for posting this Dave! I knew there was one out there from Lansing but wanted to see details and date.

Notice they only have v-code for G37.

Yeah, I noticed that too.

So the 3-speed was not standard for the '73 4-4-2?

Just pointing out that there are no v-code numbers for the F37 or J57 cars?. So the 95 only pertains to G37s.

Ive see way more 4-spd 455 cars than ever seen M20 with 350. But acording to these figures there should be around 1472 G37s with 350/4spd. Plus more when you add F37 & J57 cars.
