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?"

9 Second Buick GSX Stage2 GS Stage1 9.51 @ 140
We originally built this car with Frank Urbinati back in 1996.It debuted at
the GS Nationals where it won the GS Pro Street class races. It was also
the 1st GS Pro Street class car to break into the 9's at the time.Thanks to
Frank this project came to life. Fast forward to 2010 and the car has been
taken over by Bob Ortolani,the car still looks great and Bob decided to
bring it up another level. We were happy to have the car come back to our
shop and to have the opportunity to work with Bob and put together the new
powerplant. The video shows the results of our 1st day out to tune the
engine. The 1st two passes were shakedowns to check fuel/oil pressures and
get a feel for the new combo. By the 3rd run we had posted a 9.62 @ 138
hitting the 7100rpm rev limiter chip! The 4th run was a 9.52 @ 140. On the
5th run it went 9.51 @ 140.65! After a good cool down and a timing
adjustment we were ready to try for a 9.40 run, launching right off idle
the car gave us a nice big unexpected wheelie! The wheelie sure lookes cool
but we know we can go quicker with a little more suspension work to
straighten out the launch and try to keep the front down. We're sure it'll
go into the 9.40's yet and maybe even 30's after everything is worked out.

'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead.
After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down
Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine.
Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the
transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days
wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los
Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens!
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend

1970 Buick GSX "The Hemi Killer"
Here is the Holy Grail of the GM/Buick Musclecars and is better known as
the Hemi killer. Truly one of the fastest, and rarest, musclecars of all
time. Meet the beautiful 1970 Buick GSX Stage I. Largest torque rating of
all 1970 cars at 510 lb/ft and a grossly underrated horsepower of 360. These
cars were scary fast right off the showroom floor and few cars of the era
came close to them at the strip. This desirable Saturn Yellow example has
been restored from the ground up and is in period-correct, pristine
condition. It has been restored according to factory specs and is
currently optioned just like it was in 1970. Full numbers-matching
drivetrain. This car also has won the Buick Nationals on several occasions
and has done so as recently as 2007. It is unbelievably documented. We're
talking Protecto-Plate, Original Framed Sales Invoice, build sheet, and a
broadcast sheet that was found under the carpet. Also comes with all the
original dealer paperwork and a lot of ownership history. A true
southerner, it was sold new in Atlanta, GA on May 12, 1970. The buyer
traded in a 1969 Buick Riviera and drove out in this musclecar legend.
Only around 400 GSX Stage I's were ever produced. Own a piece of American
history. They don't build them like this anymore! For more details call

The Cars of Queens: Part II - /BIG MUSCLE
Big Muscle continues its New York adventure with its second installment on
the cars of Queens, NY. This week we're taking a look at a stunning 1967
Buick GS 400 and a highly modified 1969 Dodge Charger. These are not garage
queens, but two bad-ass muscle cars that see duty on the open road, local
road and auto-x courses and of course the occasional trip to the drag
