When you have finished. you will know the complete history of this Apollo. The Buick Apollo was a short lived model. only offered in 1973 and 1974. The Apollo was Buick’s first ever compact car. The vehicle was a very close cousin to the extremely popular Chevrolet Nova. another member of the GM X body stable. The Oldsmobile Omega and Pontiac Ventura were the remaining two models in this GM stable. Base engine was a Chevrolet 250 Cu. In. six cylinder. but the Buick 350 Cu. In. V8 was also offered as an option. In 1974. Buick even offered a sport oriented GSX model. In 1975. the Apollo was replaced by an all new Skylark. Of the four X body models. the Apollo was the most well appointed. After all. next to Cadillac. Buick was the top of the line brand. Therefore. less of these were transformed into Street Machines and drag cars. It is truly a special find when one becomes available.
