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

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.
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."

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,
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

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
Buick - 1985 Buick Grand National
Here's another great video from the History Channel's archive on the 1985
Buick Regal turbocharged Grand National.
Per the History Channel's exact video description:
attention-grabbing celebration of speed, the 1985 Grand National represents
Buick's return to muscle-car roots. Now, two teams of veteran mechanics try
to extract everything they can from the Grand National's made-for-speed
equipment (including turbo engines, fuel
injectors, and racing transmissions) to transform the car into a big, mean
The premise is simple: FULL THROTTLE selects two teams who are each given
the same model of classic car in a similar state of disrepair. They're
supplied with a garage, tools, and parts, and after 20 hours of repair
time, they battle it out in an old-fashioned drag-race on a certified
track. The winner keeps both cars. The loser keeps nothing.
They're fast, they're flashy, they reignited America's love of muscle
cars-and finally, the 1985 BUICK GRAND NATIONAL returns with a vengeance on
1969 Buick GS400. Burn that RUBBER!!
The big boy wanted to show off on this day, so I helped him. The BFG tires
don't stand a chance and never did. Gobs of torque make this all too easy.
