Buick 455 that sat for 5 years and started right up and didnt smoke
This engine was rebuilt and has about 9000 miles on it. The tranny blew and
then the car just sat in a barn for over 5 years. Surprisingly the engine
started right up with a new tranny and battery. I do not know whats in the
engine cam wise and such. I love this car.

455 GS Gran Sport Buick Project Car. Any donations apreciated!
This is my first HotRod. This car has lots of potential. I swapped the
whole wire harness under the hood and inside the car. This is my first
second attempt to start the car after it sat for approx 5 years. Im proud
of myself that I swapped the harness and it fired right up. The old wire
harness had a short in it somewhere that kept the engine from firing. This
engine has a points distributor.
My 1987 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal "briefly" taken to 2,800-RPM to Meineke! 4-02-2011
... ON THE WAY TO MEINEKE (Thanks to THE-KING and his Rochester820!).
Mike (the owner of Meineke) is a very cool/straight-up dude. He treated me
& my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal like Royalty.
This is the 1st time I actually BEAT ON my Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal a bit
with the 1973 Buick 455 V8 built by Mr. Dan Smith of D&S Performance in
The TH400 was built by Mr. Tyrone Taylor of PONTIAC-ALLEY secretly-located
in Brooklyn, NY.
WITHOUT Exhaust, the Buick pulls HARD
under 3000-rpm!!! It was very cool BLOWING THE (old slick Oldsmobile 307
burnout tires still on the Regal ... GOTTA get the MT Drag Radials) TIRES
OFF. Engine was running a bit HOT.
Next video ... with 3" true duals!
This is the first of a series of short movies taken at the Buick GS
Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky in 2012. The GS Nationals is held each
fall in Bowling Green, Kentucky and features a car show and drag racing,
showcasing the heavy-hitters of Buick performance - the big block Buick,
exemplified by the torquey 455 Stage1 and the turbocharged 3.8 V6, more commonly known as the
famous Grand National engine.
The equipment being tried out is the new Canon Rebel EOS T4i and the GoPro
Hero2. The audio is raw and unsweetened with the GoPro recording muffled
through its housing and the Canon using the built-in mic. The Canon also
uses the 18-55 mm kit lens.

1970 Buick GSX Engine Rebuild - RKM Performance Center
This 455cid V8 came into the shop under the hood of a 1970 Buick GSX. When
new, the motor was capable of propelling the GSX to 13-second quarter mile
passes in stock trim. Unfortunately, this one was way past its prime. To
get this 455 back in shape, a full rebuld was called for. Technician Jon
Sipple gives us a quick overview of the process.
