132215 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c2yu5nl This matching-numbers 1970 GSX represents the very pinnacle of GM's muscle car development, and if you're serious about performance, this is a car that you should examine very closely. This car carries 100% of its original sheet metal and has been given an extensive restoration to concours levels. There was no way to avoid the blacked out hood and stripes along the side of your GSX, and why the heck would you want to do that? It looks incredibly aggressive, yet tasteful at the same time, exactly what you would expect from Buick's gentleman's express. Panel gaps are excellent throughout the car, and there's something about a Buick that just feels more substantial than the Chevy and Pontiac cousins—maybe thicker weather stripping or more sound deadener or something. Whatever the cause, this car seals up tight and is rattle-free, just like a new car would be. The finish is brilliant, using modern paints to achieve a depth and gloss that makes this car impossible to ignore at a show or on the street. The matching-numbers 455 in this GSX has been fully rebuilt to Stage 1 specs. That means bigger valves, a more aggressive camshaft, stronger valve springs, and revised jetting in the carburetor. Invisible upgrades include port-matched heads, intake, and Exhaust manifolds, making this one sweet-running big block. Cosmetically, the engine bay is ready for show, with the only variation from pure stock being a set of chrome OEM valve covers, although a set of red painted covers is included with the car for 100% authenticity. Decals, hoses, clamps, wiring, and other piece, including the ram air system, have been exactly replicated for show purposes. Also note that this Buick has A/C, which is fully restored and fully functional. The engine is backed by the original, numbers-matching TH400 3-speed automatic, perhaps the most indestructible automatic transmission ever created. Out back, Buick wisely chose to put 3.42s in their top performer—too much more gear and all you're going to do is make expensive rubber smoke. The entire chassis has been restored, with highly accurate details throughout. From the satin black floors to the detailed suspension, which appears to be powder-coated in finishes that approximate the original raw steel, this car will show well at any level. Flowmaster mufflers are the lone deviation from stock, but they sound amazing and perhaps even make some extra power, so who is complaining? Wheels are the best looking factory wheels ever made, with Goodyear Polyglas GT tires for an absolutely authentic look and feel. The black bucket seat interior is the perfect mix of performance and luxury, done as only Buick could have done it. The seats are full of fresh foam and new seat covers, and the carpet and headliner are new. Door panels are correct with unique GS badging, and the dashboard is full of restored gauges. The console houses the coolest automatic shifter ever invented, and the woodgrain adds an upscale touch. As I said, the A/C blows cold, the original radio works properly, and all the details that make the GSX unique, like the padded steering wheel, have been restored. Look at the prices on LS6 Chevelles and GTOs, then look at the price on this gorgeous Buick. Add in a matching-numbers driveline, factory A/C, and a spectacular restoration, and this particular GSX is the one to own. Drive it, enjoy it, take it to the Buick Nationals and have a ball, that's what this car is all about. Call now before the market catches on and discovers what awesome cars these really are.





9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138 hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the 5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.

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 & Off-Road magazine.

This is part 1, with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two, loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.

134283 / 1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/pp2mfqt When GM lifted their ban of engines larger than 400 cubic inches in intermediate cars, the Buick camp responded with a legendary piece of muscle car history. The GS was the go-to for anyone who put equal emphasis on pure comfort and brute power. This Sloan-documented 1970 GS 455 is the beneficiary of an extensive frame-off restoration which has already claimed some significant awards. Accolades include a Concours Gold First Senior award at the 2012 Buick Club of America Nationals. While Buick's GSX made its presence loud and clear with two strong color options, the GS455 went about things in a slightly more sophisticated way. This GS 455 wears a refreshing mix of fresh Burgundy Mist and Glacier White paint for a refined appearance. Only the functional hood scoops hint at the cars performance capabilities. All brightwork has been polished or replaced, including the showroom fresh bumpers which were rechromed by Tri-City Plating. Inside the car, Buick design remains at the forefront. An all new Pearl White interior from Legendary Auto Interiors offers new carpet, bucket seats, door panels, and a taut new headliner. Presentation is great thanks to details like freshly rechromed center console trim and a new steering wheel. Upgrades include a full Custom Autosound stereo system with direct iPod connection. The stock Buick 455 was a strong engine, offering a factory rated 360 horsepower and 510 lb. /ft. of torque but this GS takes things to the next level. Lift the hood and a deceptively stock-appearing bay hosts a fully rebuilt 470ci Buick motor full of high-quality parts. Built by Tri-Shield Performance, the block hosts pieces like Diamond forged pistons, Eagle H-beam rods, and a TA cam. At the top, a ported stock intake works alongside ported and polished aluminum SE Stage 1 heads to help make a stout 507 horsepower. Behind that powerhouse, TH400 automatic transmission rebuilt by TSP spins power back to a 12-bolt rear with versatile 3.31 gears. At either side, headers connect to a 3-inch dual Exhaust system complete with an X-pipe and Flowmaster 50 series mufflers. To the rear, a new Quantum fuel tank and RobbMc fuel pump keep the big Buick properly fed. During restoration, the frame was sand blasted and painted with an industrial urethane before being joined by all new suspension components. Power front disc brakes and rear drums provide plenty of stopping power while a fully rebuilt power steering system ensures confidence through the corners. The chassis meets the road through new Wheel Vintiques Buick Rally wheels wrapped in Goodyear Polylgas tires. Offering a near-perfect blend of show and go, this award-winning 1970 GS 455 is a great reminder of Buick's performance heritage and a resounding "Yes" to the old slogan, "Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?"





Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."
