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
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
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

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

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,

loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011

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?"
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."
