The 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 featured a new 455ci big block that churned out an ungodly amount of torque. When ordered with the GSX appearance package, the car arrived in brilliant Apollo White or Saturn Yellow like the one offered here, which features the GSX front and rear spoilers, contrasting accent body striping, heavy duty suspension with larger tires and a Matte Black hood-mounted tach.
This four-speed GSX Stage 1 is documented as the 39th GSX built in 1970. Its 360 horse engine is backed by the standard heavy-duty Muncie manual transmission and a 3.64:1 Positraction differential; drivetrain options include power steering and power front disc brakes.
Interior appointments are a big part of this Buick's luxury side, with Black bucket seats flanking the console mounted Hurst shifter, special Rally gauges and clock, a padded Rally steering wheel on a tilt column and an AM radio.
The Saturn Yellow finish is complemented by contrasting GSX Black and Red striping, color-keyed dual mirrors and chrome-plated 15x7 Magnum-style wheels wearing Goodyear G60-15 white-lettered fiberglass belted tires.
This superb 1970 Buick GSX Stage 1 is the recipient of a complete restoration and is documented and registered with the National GSX Historical Society.

Drag Week 2013: Dave Ahokas on Pro Mods Versus Steel Cars in the Unlimited Class
As Drag Week enters its ninth year, the big talk is about Pro-Mod-style
"street" cars versus real steel OE cars in the Unlimited class. For 9
years, Unlimited has had no rules. For five years, Larry Larson has won
with a production-based, full-tube-chassis '66 Nova. Dave Ahokas has run a
Jerry Bickel-chassis Pro Mod car in Unlimited for two years and has not
been able to survive the 1,000-plus-mile drive required by Drag Week, but
he became a focus of attention just before the 2013 event when he ran 6.97
at 200 mph in the quarter mile in testing at Beech Bend Raceway on the day
before Drag Week began at the same track. That 6.87 is quicker than any
known pass from a former Drag Week contender. The question is, will the car
be able to survive a week on the road? And the bigger question on many
fans' minds is, should Pro Mod cars converted to street cars continue to be
allowed at Drag Week? In this video, HOT ROD's Elana Scherr interviews Dave
Ahokas before the start of competition at Drag Week 2013 so we can hear
his views on why he's at the center of the controversy. Drag Week 2013 is
presented by Gear Vendors and co-sponsored by Pep Boys Speed Shop. See more

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.
