134283 / 1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/pp2mfqt 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 Tri-City Plating. 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 iPod connection. 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?"

134269 / 1970 Buick GS455
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/l6bj7jt For 1970, GM offered an impressive list of toppings for their A-body platform. From the scrappy Rallye 350/W-31 Olds to the 442 camp to the fearsome big block Chevelles, GM had an answer for just about everyone. Buick provided arguably the most high-end option with their ground-pounding GS. This 1970 GS 455 convertible is a great example. Complete with its original engine and transmission, the car benefits from a frame-up restoration that brought everything within sight back up to factory standards. Between four assembly plants, Buick turned out 10,148 GS 455's for the model year. Of those, only 1,416 were convertibles and just 136 shared the code 50 Bamboo Cream paint found on this GS. Paint and body were a focus of restorative efforts and it shows throughout the exterior. The paint has a nice luster to it and presents well from most angles. Panel gaps are better than factory standards and everything opens and shuts as it should. When the weather works against you, a dark brown vinyl top with a glass rear window offers both protection from the elements and a nice contrast against the Bamboo Cream. Pop the hood of this GS to find the original 455ci V8 in place, developing a factory-rated 350hp and a staggering 510 lb-ft of torque. The foundation is a correct 1231738 Buick block dressed in orange paint and rounded out by a matching VIN derivative. The Rochester Quadrajet is still there, handling fuel supply while the factory cast intake manifold and heads both wear the same orange as the block. The package is topped by a Ram Air setup which pulls fresh air through the hood for a little extra thump. From the correct cast iron Exhaust manifolds to the replicated chalk marks on the firewall to the reproduction Delco battery, everything here shows and functions as it should. Behind the 455, the original TH400 3-speed automatic still handles shifting duties with authority. Power meets the pavement through a correct 10-bolt with limited slip and 3.42 gears that offer strong launches and comfortable highway cruising. The suspension has received some attention but stays true to GM design. Through the corners, front and rear sway bars pair with factory power steering to maximize driver input. Braking is equally adept thanks to power front disc and rear drums that tuck behind chrome 15-inch Buick wheels wrapped in 235/60R15 and 245/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As. Interiors have always been a high point for the Buick brand. Even today, their base model will grant you more style and comfort than most on the market. Inside this GS, you'll find a restored Burnished Saddle interior with tasteful styling and plenty of creature comforts. With its numbers matching drivetrain and unique color scheme, the car is sure to grab the attention of Buick fans while getting little more than a friendly nod from local law enforcement. Best of all, this is a huge amount of car for the money.
