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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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 manual transmission.
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!
Here's a pre-parade vid of the 2009 GSX Reunion at the National Trail Raceway in Hebron, OH. The Buick GSX reunion was part of the BPG Nationals. At least 83 GSXes were counted at the event.
