1972 Buick GS STK 1404
By now, everyone knows better than to mess with the big, bad, 455 GS Buicks, right? Bordering on insanely overpowered from the factory, a few bolt-on parts can turn these flying bricks into weapons that will leave Dodge Viper owners sobbing. Sinister in that bright red paint job, this well-restored, 700-mile car tells you all you need to know about Buick performance in the late �70s. Sure the shape of the body says conservative, but the way it�s dressed smacks you like a two-by-four to the back of the head. The N25 bumper package and with a hood tack and 3 piece spoiler makes the exclamation point. You just can�t miss these cars driving down the road, and by the time you�ve seen one, it�s already too late�you won�t catch it and the new stainless steel brakes will help keep it under control. On this particular car, the paint is in good condition all around with factory panel alignment. The red is glossy and deep, exactly the way you want it on one of these cruisers. There are a few touch-ups here and there�the car is, after all, 39 years old�but even with a numbers matching GS it�s clear that this car was never used as a daily driver. All the glass is good, and the seals are supple, suggesting that this car has been properly treated for its entire life. There are no signs of damage to the bumpers, no little nicks on the leading edge of the nose, and the flanks are thankfully free of parking lot door dings. This is a nice car that presents well, and you know how hard it is to make red look good! The engine on this car is 100% stock, except the original heads. In the car are T/A aluminum heads port and polished that add that little extra someth'n, someth'n when you mash the gas. With almost all of the original equipment still intact. Look at the pictures and you can see how well-maintained this car is. Everything is in very good condition and it�s obvious that this car has never seen snow. There�s not any additional flash under there, but it is 95% factory original and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare car like this one. The 455 cubic inch motor is backed by the ultra-reliable T400 automatic, a transmission which has served honorably and faithfully behind these big block motors. Out back there�s a set of 3.42 gears in posi trac pumpkin, offering great off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities. The stock black GS interior is just as impressive as the exterior. The dashboard is pure original. A set off Sunpro gauges mounted just below the radio helps keep tabs on the performance of thie monster under the hood. Regal, with the long, rectangular speedometer augmented by a small bar graph style tachometer and Boost gauge. The upholstery is in excellent condition with no excessive wear, and certainly no rips, tears, or stains anywhere. The headliner is perfect, the carpets look almost new, and the dashboard has no sign of cracking or sun damage. The A/C blows cold, the AM/FM stereo woks properly, and the car is ready for a summer�s worth of cruising and stop light grand prix. This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.

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."
