1971 BUICK GSX 455 1 OF ONLY 124 MADE SOLD! NEW UPDATE FINISHED AND HAS BEEN SOLD!!!
This is a original 1971 Buick GSX 455 car. Yes this is a original, NOT A CLONE, 1 of only 124 ever made in 71 that includes 350, 455 and 455 stage 1 cars all together. This car is registered in the GSX registry. This car was not known to exist until it was discovered a little while ago. There are 3 known so far out of all 1971 GXS's to have a paint code of 62 which is Bittersweet Mist. The others Bittersweet Mist GSX's are restored one is only a 350 engine and 350 auto tranny car. The other is a stage 1 455 car. So this is the only 455 engine 1971 GSX made in the color Bittersweet Mist to date.
I have talked to the original owner and have a document that has been signed by him and notorized stating that this is a true 1971 GSX, which he bought on march 12, 1971. I have the original protecto plate This car is a 4owner car, and can be traced to every owner and all the owners are still alive. This was bought brand new at Key Buick & Opel in Jacksonville, Florida on 3/12/71. It stayed in Florida until mid 1979, then it went to the last of the 3 owners in Alabama where it stayed until about a month ago 2/1/08. Now it resides with me here in Pa. This was always a southern car and is about 98% rust free. It has just a little around the back rear window and a pin hole in the rear seat pan and where the battery box is, that was because of a leaky battery but thats it. I have alot of picture of the doors, trunk, floors, fenders, rad support, frame, etc and all of that is 100% solid. This is a very original car with the exception for the block as it was damaged back in the late 1970's and could not be repaired so it was changed with another but the rest of the car is all near original as you see it in the video. This car has had the passenger side door fixed back in 1971 only 3 months after it was new this was told to me by the original owner. The paint is nearly all original with the exception for the drivers door and rear quater. The interior, transmission, which is the original matching numbers turbo 400, original posi rear end, suspension, etc. This is a unmolested car that still retains, from what I can tell, all of it's original sheetmetal with the exception of the drivers door from what I can tell. you can see in the pictures the faded original paint as well as the original faded painted GSX stripes and hood treatment and the faded GSX decals. This car has a tanish interior and has the following options 455 motor, automatic turbo 400, air conditioning, GSX option, Bittersweet Mist paint, tan bucket seat interior, center console, courtesy light package, front and rear bumperettes, power steering, power disk brakes, 3:42 posi rear end heavy duty 10 bolt that only came on the GSX,15" ralley rims. It is sometimes hard to find 1970 GSX's but there out there as they made 678 and they only came in 2 colors yellow or white now compare that to a 1971 GSX which they only made 124 period and you can get them now in special order colors because every GSX had to be special ordered, that was the only way you could get one. If anyone wants a chance to own a original 1971 GSX here is your chance. These cars in #1 condition will bring near $150,000 because of what they are. The car was inspected by a very well know GSX expert and National judge( Duane Heckman of philadelphia, pa.). He shared his findings and pictures with a other well known GSX judge to also verify that THIS IS A GENUINE 1971 GSX. He took every date code he could find. He proved that the car has all of it's original sheetmetal with the exception of the drivers side door. The drivers door is a genuine GM part but was put on the car a couple months after it was purchased. There was some damage on the very front of the drivers side quater as well. This is why the black paint is mostly off the drivers side stripe. These 2 areas were repainted in 1971 as well as the stripes. Now the rest of the car still reatains it's original paint and stripes as well as GSX decals. The proof is in the stripes being that they are original to the car. The spoiler, tach, wheels, interior, bumpers, headlight assemblys, hood, suspension are all original to the car. All of the options on the car was also verified. I hope this helps everyone out. There is proof on this car and it is now documented as a true original 1971 GSX in bittersweet mist. if anyone has any questions about the inspection please email me or call 570-875-7109. Thanks for your interest...
UPDATE::::: The car has had a rotisserie high grade restoration and recieved Gold 2 times and the nationals. The car is for sale. The car was put back to factory specs everywhere as well as finding a correct block. If anyone is interested please feel free to call me. Sorry the car has been sold for $100,000.
If anyone has any questions please email me or call Me(Marty) at 570-875-7109.

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
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
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?"

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
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. 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.
How to Fix a Scratch and Paint with Base / Clear

technicians and discuss car painting techniques with auto body
professionals and enthusiasts.
This shows a minor scrape on a Mazda Miata. The scratch was feathered out,
primed and painted using BASF paint. There are many ways to get the job
done, this is what was done here:
1. The scratch was feathered out using 280 grit paper until each color was
seperated around 1/2".
2. Next it was backsanded to allow space for the primer to adhere.
3. It was primed with 2 coats of Glasurit 285-10/20 direct to metal
urethane primer and allowed to dry. It was primed with a devilbiss
finishline HVLP gun with a 1.6 tip.
4. Next it was blocksanded using 320 paper, then final sanded with some
400-500 grit paper. Using a block is optional there but recommended.
5. After taping it up it was painted using RM Diamont basecoat in 3 coats.
Each coat was allowed to flash about 5 minutes before the next one. Then 15
minutes before clearing. An Iwata LPH400 was used to apply the basecoat at
about 20 psi.
6. The clear coat used here was BASF DC5335 Glamour clear. It was applied
in 2 coats with about 10 minutes between coats. It was applied using an
Iwata W400 with about 26 PSI at the gauge.
A few dirt nibs were colorsanded and polished afterwards.
1971 CAMARO Z28 WITH ONLY 19,311 MILES ORIGINAL SHEETMETAL FOR SALE! $38,500obo! UPDATE SOLD!
This is a 1971 Camaro
Z28 that I am selling. It has only 19,311 original miles. The miles are
verified and true. The car has all original sheet metal with one full
complete correct repaint in its correct colors. The car was taken all apart
and fully stripped down to bar metal. I mean everything came off to paint
the car correctly. The cost was around $15,000. The paint is 9.9 out of 10
with no issues. All the stainless steel bright work was taken off and fully
polished, they look like they did in 71, all original GM pieces. Also when
the car was put back together there was all NOS weather stripping used. It
is NOS and not oem. The weather stripping was bought back in the mid 70's
from GM and stored correctly and are in mint condition. Nothing fits like
original GM parts. The bumpers are still the originals from 1971 and in
very good condition with only very little signs of their age but still very
clean and do NOT need to be changed. The underneath of the car is original
and not touched from 1971. It was dealer undercoated and is very thin, you
can remove the undercoating and see the very bright Red oxide primer
beneath. The trunk is all original with the original splatter paint. You
can see where it stops and the red oxide paint is everywhere else in the
trunk. The original, like new, mat is still in the trunk as well.
The only aftermarket part in the interior is a new carpet and gas pedal the
rest of the interior is all original GM and in PERFECT condition, with the
only exception for the heater A/C controls and dash pad. They are original
GM parts but since you could not order A/C until 1973 in a Z28 the 1st
owner had factory A/C installed along with power door locks around 1975 and
used all GM original pieces. The A/C system is 100% full working condition.
The headliner, seatbelts, center console, steering wheel, gauges, radio,
door panels are all original even the seats are still all original with
original material and you can plainly see the unpainted rust free seat
track. This interior is spotless.
The car still has the all 5 original wheels that still have all original
paint on them from 1971 and Yes all 5 original Goodyear Polyglas tires from
1971. I have verified this and it is fact that the wheels and tires are
untouched and the originals the car came with. They were taken off the car
at 12,000 miles or so in 1972 and stored the proper way until they were put
back on the car a couple years ago. The tires are crack and dry rot free
with no flat spots. The spare tire was never mounted on the car. The
original jack assembly with jack cover is still in the trunk and in very
good condition. The car also has the original Exhaust, there are Stainless steel tips on the
car now but I have the original tips and they go with the car.
The engine compartment is very clean and original. The block is a warranty
replacement block and is stamped as such. The heads, Exhaust manifolds, intake, carb (which was fully
rebuilt), distributor with cap (which was fully rebuilt), Starter (which
was full rebuilt), smog system were fully redone and are all original to
the car. The Exhaust manifold on the
passenger side has NOS stovepipe on it(GM # 338473 and 338471). The 2
pieces are NOS (still have the GM tags from them)and were installed after
the manifolds were taken off cleaner and repainted. The car still retains
its original M20 4 speed and bell housing. The car has all correct hoses,
clamps, and date coded correct style plug wires and NOS plug wires. Even
the power brake Booster is the
original from 1971. The rear is a 3:73 Posi rear which is the correct 10
bolt rear for the car.
It also has power steering, power disk brakes, rear defrost, am/fm stereo
and power locks.
The car comes with the original Protecto-plate, owner's manual with clear
plastic cover and original tire changing instructions and also 2 original
cut keys with the cutouts still intact. The price is $38,500obo I might
have interest in a trade possibly for 1967 Mustang GT/GTA fastback or
convertible S code or possibly something else. If anyone has any questions
please call me. I also have a link I can send with 340 full page pictures.
Thanks, so much. Marty 570-875-7109
