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.

1971 BUICK GSX 455 1 OF ONLY 124 MADE SOLD! NEW UPDATE FINISHED AND HAS BEEN SOLD!!!
This is a original 1971 Buick GSX 455 car. Yes this is a original, NOT A
CLONE, 1 of only 124 ever made in 71 that includes 350, 455 and 455 stage 1
cars all together. This car is registered in the GSX registry. This car was
not known to exist until it was discovered a little while ago. There are 3
known so far out of all 1971 GXS's to have a paint code of 62 which is
Bittersweet Mist. The others Bittersweet Mist GSX's are restored one is
only a 350 engine and 350 auto tranny car. The other is a stage 1 455 car.
So this is the only 455 engine 1971 GSX made in the color Bittersweet Mist
I have talked to the original owner and have a document that has been
signed by him and notorized stating that this is a true 1971 GSX, which he
bought on march 12, 1971. I have the original protecto plate This car is a
4owner car, and can be traced to every owner and all the owners are still
alive. This was bought brand new at Key Buick & Opel in Jacksonville,
Florida on 3/12/71. It stayed in Florida until mid 1979, then it went to
the last of the 3 owners in Alabama where it stayed until about a month ago
2/1/08. Now it resides with me here in Pa. This was always a southern car
and is about 98% rust free. It has just a little around the back rear
window and a pin hole in the rear seat pan and where the battery box is,
that was because of a leaky battery but thats it. I have alot of picture of
the doors, trunk, floors, fenders, rad support, frame, etc and all of that
is 100% solid. This is a very original car with the exception for the block
as it was damaged back in the late 1970's and could not be repaired so it
was changed with another but the rest of the car is all near original as
you see it in the video. This car has had the passenger side door fixed
back in 1971 only 3 months after it was new this was told to me by the
original owner. The paint is nearly all original with the exception for the
drivers door and rear quater. The interior, transmission, which is the
original matching numbers turbo 400,
original posi rear end, suspension, etc. This is a unmolested car that
still retains, from what I can tell, all of it's original sheetmetal with
the exception of the drivers door from what I can tell. you can see in the
pictures the faded original paint as well as the original faded painted GSX
stripes and hood treatment and the faded GSX decals. This car has a tanish
interior and has the following options 455 motor, automatic turbo 400, air conditioning, GSX option,
Bittersweet Mist paint, tan bucket seat interior, center console, courtesy
light package, front and rear bumperettes, power steering, power disk
brakes, 3:42 posi rear end heavy duty 10 bolt that only came on the GSX,15"
ralley rims. It is sometimes hard to find 1970 GSX's but there out there as
they made 678 and they only came in 2 colors yellow or white now compare
that to a 1971 GSX which they only made 124 period and you can get them now
in special order colors because every GSX had to be special ordered, that
was the only way you could get one. If anyone wants a chance to own a
original 1971 GSX here is your chance. These cars in #1 condition will
bring near $150,000 because of what they are. The car was inspected by a
very well know GSX expert and National judge( Duane Heckman of
philadelphia, pa.). He shared his findings and pictures with a other well
known GSX judge to also verify that THIS IS A GENUINE 1971 GSX. He took
every date code he could find. He proved that the car has all of it's
original sheetmetal with the exception of the drivers side door. The
drivers door is a genuine GM part but was put on the car a couple months
after it was purchased. There was some damage on the very front of the
drivers side quater as well. This is why the black paint is mostly off the
drivers side stripe. These 2 areas were repainted in 1971 as well as the
stripes. Now the rest of the car still reatains it's original paint and
stripes as well as GSX decals. The proof is in the stripes being that they
are original to the car. The spoiler, tach, wheels, interior, bumpers,
headlight assemblys, hood, suspension are all original to the car. All of
the options on the car was also verified. I hope this helps everyone out.
There is proof on this car and it is now documented as a true original 1971
GSX in bittersweet mist. if anyone has any questions about the inspection
please email me or call 570-875-7109. Thanks for your interest...
UPDATE::::: The car has had a rotisserie high grade restoration and
recieved Gold 2 times and the nationals. The car is for sale. The car was
put back to factory specs everywhere as well as finding a correct block. If
anyone is interested please feel free to call me. Sorry the car has been
sold for $100,000.
If anyone has any questions please email me or call Me(Marty) at

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
us at toll free (866)542-8392 or (704)598-2130.
This is the most recent chapter of the famous Hemi vs. Buick shoootout,
with the added twist that the winner of Hemi vs Buick squares off against
an L88 Corvette. The shootout was hosted by Hot Rod Magazine, and was run
at Cordova IL in 2006. The cars are required to be compliant with stock
appearing rules as defined by the F.A.S.T. Musclecar racing series
(www.fastracesorg), with the exception of racing slicks being allowed.
