134023 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cweedua
In 1970 Buick introduced the GSX as their answer to Pontiac's GTO Judge and
Chevrolet's Chevelle SS454. Modestly rated at 360hp and 510 ft./lb. of
torque, the GSX Stage 1 was described as a more luxurious HEMI 'Cuda
because of its lighter weight and amazing power. In 2002, this particular
example won a Senior Award from the Buick Club of America and the 'A' Body
of The Year award at the Buick Nationals. In 2010 it racked up Concours
Gold awards at both the Buick Performance Group Nationals and GS Nationals.
Literally every nut and bolt on this GSX Stage 1 has been replaced to
factory standards and showroom shine to ensure that it gets the most points
possible from any discerning judge. Every weld and gap is perfect making
for excellent panel fit and functionality giving this Buick a menacing, yet
luxurious appearance. Chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add an
element of class and luxury. The combination of black, white and chrome is
complemented by small splashes of color like the rear GSX decals and red
pin stripping around the GSX side stripe. Red, white and blue Buick
tri-shield center caps are bolted to GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch
Rallye wheels. Those stylish Rallye wheels are wrapped in reproduction
Super Wide Oval tires as if the car had just left the factory.
Buick's mighty 455 big block V8 was one of the first motors to utilize thin
wall casting and as a result is lighter than a comparable Chevrolet 454.
Take one look under the hood at the numbers matching 455 and you'll see why
this GSX is a gold winning car. Everything from the battery to the decals
has been restored to showroom quality and nothing less than best of show.
This particular GSX was up fitted from the factory with the Stage 1
performance package which added a hotter cam, bigger valves, low
restriction Exhaust and revised jets
in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. The result is an unpublished rating
of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.
This GSX also features Buick's Rallye Ride Control Package which includes a
rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs
and rear lower control arm assemblies. Connecting that massive power with
this enhanced driving system is a factory option, numbers matching
close-ratio 4-speed transmission. Equipped in only 188 Buick GSX's for
1970, that transmission sends the torque to the ground via 3.64 gears in a
numbers matching high performance Buick Posi-Traction rear axle. At the
front corners, factory power assisted discs and at the rear corners,
factory power assisted drums bring everything to a stop. The guys at Then
and Now topped off the restoration with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines,
new brake lines, new body mounts and a fresh GM black undercoating.
This sale includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing the
car to be GSX number 622 of 678 produced for 1970. Also included are
Concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group
Nationals as well as the Buick Club of America gold medal, affixed to the
grille of the car, signifying senior award status. The car features a
numbers matching 455 V8, a numbers matching 4 speed close ratio
transmission and a numbers matching 3.64 high performance rear end. It is
one of 178 Apollo White cars produced and one of 188 cars equipped with the
Even after 40 years the interior of the GSX still feels luxurious and
comfortable. The gauge cluster consists of a clock and brightwork set
against wood grain texture. The seats and door panels feature upgraded
vinyl, adding to the fresh feeling created by the nicer GSX dash.
This gorgeous GSX has the hardware to satisfy your wants and the class to
fulfill your needs. It has enough power under its hood, luxury behind its
doors and trophies under its belt to make any car guy happy. The sale
includes concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance
Group Nationals and documentation from the GSX Historic Society. Call today
for a chance to own this award winning car!

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel

conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead

loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
