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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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 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.

1970 Buick GS Stage 1
1970 Buick GS If you are looking for a muscle car but don't want the same Camaro with racing stripes as the other guys then you have found the next piece for your collection. With the split style grill like a Firebird or Oldsmobile and long roofline like a Chevelle the Buick Gran Sport creates a look that is all its own. This 1970 Buick GS was fully restored and has a beautiful finish. It is always a hit at car shows where it is always one of the more unique muscle cars in the lot. It is coated a very nice Red that has a great shine. The correct style hood is in place with dual center air dams that just add to that over all tough appearance. There is no doubt the car has a look that tells others you just don't want to mess with it. The chrome bumpers have a great shine and are cleanly mounted in place. All of the stainless trim around the grill, windows, and down the side have a nice finish with no issues. The rocker panel trim has matching Red paint and shines just as nicely as the rest. The glass is all in good condition and with a slight tint looks great next to the Red. The correct GS and Stage 1 emblems are mounted in place on the rear deck, front fenders, and front grill with nothing missing. The dual style headlights are nicely framed with polished trim and work properly. Under all 4 corners are a nice set of Rally style wheels that are a combo of chrome and Black. Powering this matching down the road is the correct style GS Stage 1 455 motor that is finished out in the original style. The air dams on the hood were certainly not for show and feed air into the original style air cleaner that is even topped with the correct decals. Chrome valve covers have been added with most other components having a nice Black finish. The power brakes. The interior is complete in all Black and the dual front bucket seats are very comfortable. Headrests are in place and the seat backs are adjustable. They sit to each side of the original center console which often gets lost on some of these old classics. It is accented with the correct wood trim which you will also find on the dash. The original gauges, knobs, and switches are all there and working well. The factory AC system utilizes the original vents inset into the dash and blows cold. check it out at Classical Gas Enterprises (682) 429-1010 www.classicalgasmotors.com and remember "There's A Future In The Past With Classical Gas"
