the video is kinda messed up, i don't need new belts and yes i know i need new Exhaust. My 70 skylark, 350-2. This car is kinda rare and makes it a little more because it's 3 on the tree. This means its standerd and you shift on the column. I love it and would not really want to sell it. i have paid for everything on the car but 2 things. tires, and front swaybar. My dad was there helping me the way, he is a bodyman and we got many more cool cars,70 nova, 67 chevelle,31 model a coupe,63 corvette. The buick has dual Exhaust but the passenger side has to many holes. The Exhaust is the only thing that i need to finish on it. everything is done. sorry the car is not so clean. has not been driven in 2, 2/1/2 months.
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.

1969 Buick Special Deluxe (Skylark/GS Base Model)
This is my 69 Buick Special Deluxe (which is actually pretty hard to find
now-a-days. They're mostly Skylarks and GSs now) I got a little over a week
ago. Got it for $2500. Its in fantastic condition for being non-restored
for 41 years. Got a 250ci Chevy Straight-6 (the smallest engine you could
get on the car at the time) and a 3 speed stick on the tree. I love this
car so much!

Here is a video of some of the work I have done on my 73 Nova. I am in the
process of restoring the car. Its completely gutted right now. Building a
350, th350, posi 3:83 rear, 3k B&M stall, etc. should be about a 13 second
car when its done. This video shows what I did to make subframe connectors
and upgraded shocks & sway bars.
Chop Shop Custom's 1970 Nova
Read more on Auto123.com : http://bit.ly/9nPtBA - Chop Shop Customs
showcased their 1970 Nova at the 2010 SEMA show in Las Vegas, giving
everyone a glance at their capabilities when it comes to building exciting
The Nova has a forced induction GM 350 cubic inches high output engine with
a Tremec 5 speed transmission. It has not officially been told, but the car
should have 450 horsepower according to Dyno tests and Magna
Charger. A merlot jewel pearl paint from Dupont and 18-inch wheels wrapped
in Falken tires give the car a very unique and modern look. A Ride Tech air
ride also make the Nova stand very low to add another touch of visual
candy. To compliment this modern look, classic elements like a 1968 Camaro dash with classic
instruments were added.
1977 Chevy Nova 4 Door
My 1977 Chevy Nova 4 door. I said 1975 in the video, it's actually a '77.
Just showing the basic condition of the car, a quick over view of my plans,
and things like that.
Also, I'm doing a little contest among friends. Vote for a name or phrase
for the car, that name or phrase will be painted on the hood of my car for
a few days, and then put on a sticker on the rear windshield for as long as
it holds. Post a comment telling me what the name of the car should be!

It was inspected in 2009 and 2011 driven some on the road
The basic Skylark was available as a two-door hardtop coupe or a four-door
sedan. The Skylark Custom came as a two-door convertible coupe, two-door
hardtop coupe, four-door hardtop sedan, or four-door sedan.
The previous V6 was discontinued and the associated tooling was sold to
Kaiser Industries, which used the V6 in its Jeep trucks and sport utility
vehicles. The base engine in Buick Skylarks (and Buick Special sedans)
became a 250-cubic-inch inline six-cylinder engine using a 1-barrel
Rochester carburetor (borrowed from Buick's sister Chevrolet division) that
produced 155 hp (116 kW) at 4200 rpm.
Optional on the Skylark and standard on the Skylark Custom was a new 350
cubic inch V8 engine using a 2-barrel Rochester carburetor that produced
230 hp (170 kW) at 4400 rpm. This engine was based on the previous 300- and
340-cubic inch-displacement V8 engines. The Buick Special name was dropped
after the 1969 model year.
For 1970, the mid-sized Buicks once again received new sheet metal and the
Buick Skylark name was moved down another notch, replacing the previous
Buick Special. The Skylark became the entry-level Buick available in two-
and four-door sedans with the 250-cubic-inch inline-6 as standard and the
350 cubic inch V8 (260 horsepower at 4600 rpm)
available as an option.
Replacing the previous Buick Skylark was the Buick Skylark 350, available
as a two-door hardtop coupe or four-door sedan with the 350 cubic inch V8
as standard equipment. This 350 cubic inch engine was a different design
then the Chevy's 350 CID engine (4.000 in × 3.48 in) the Buick design had
a longer stroke and smaller bore (3.80 X 3.85 in) allowing for lower-end
torque, deep skirt block construction, higher nickel-content cast iron, 3.0
in crank main journals, and 6.5 in connecting rods, the distributor was
located in front of the engine (typical of Buick), the oil pump was
external and mounted in the front of the engine, the rocker arm assembly
had all rocker arms mounted on a single rod and were not adjustable. The
Skylark Custom continued to be available, also using the 350 cubic inch V8
as standard equipment and still available as a two-door convertible coupe,
two-door hardtop coupe, four-door hardtop sedan, and four-door sedan. Buick
Gran Sport models continued to be available as a separate series. The Buick
Sport Wagon name was now used on a conventional four-door station wagon
that no longer featured a raised roof with glass panels over the cargo
area, or a longer wheelbase, as in the past. It now used the same 116 in
wheelbase as the Buick Skylark four-door sedan and the now-discontinued
Buick Special four-door Station Wagon. It became, in effect, a Buick
Skylark four-door station wagon in all respects but the name.
1972 was the last model year for the mid-sized Buick Skylark. During this
model year many pollution controls were added to the Engines, Compression
was lowered, engines had to accept leaded and unleaded gas, and spark
timing was retarded (no vacuum advance in lower gears) while driving in
lower gears to reduce emissions. For 1972, the base Buick Skylark used the
350 cubic inch V8 with the 2-barrel Rochester carburetor (now putting out
145 horsepower) as
standard equipment. A new federally-mandated system to calculate power was
put into effect that year, and the actual engine performance was probably
comparable but slightly lower because of pollution controls in the 1972
model year to the 230 hp (170 kW) that was listed for the previous year.
The Skylark 350 now used a version of the same V8 engine as the base
Skylark, but with a 4-barrel Rochester carburetor that generated 170 hp
1970 Buick GS Stage 1 Frame-Off Restored
Just a quick walk around and drive of my friends '70 GS Stage 1. John
Osborne did the frame, trans, rear, engine, ran all the lines and wiring,
brakes, etc. Indigo Blue Chevy paint.
Delta 350 Rocket Idle!!
Took about 6 months of reseach, searching, and hard work, but now it's
finally done. 1968 Olds rocket 350 with a th-400 tranny.
The squeaking is the power steering belt. It has since been tightened and
doesn't squeak anymore. This motor is rated at 255 hp and 360 ft/lbs back
in 1968. Upgrades are X pipe Exhaust,
dual plane manifold, and 4 barrel carb (numbers were based on the tiny 2
barrel, now sucking down more fuel)
The car runs 15.8 in the 1/4 mile so the HP number is roughy 268. Not bad
on a NEVER REBUILT 40 YEAR OLD MOTOR.
I didn't go with a big block for a few reasons. I didn't have the money to
upgrade the 7.5 rear end at the time. They don't make heavy duty springs
for the Delta 88, and at a stock rating of 510 ft/lbs it probably would
bend the frame
