In 1970 Buick introduced the GSX as their answer to Pontiac's GTO Judge and Chevrolet's Chevelle SS454. Modestly rated at 360hp and 510 ft./lb. of torque, the GSX Stage 1 was described as a more luxurious HEMI 'Cuda because of its lighter weight and amazing power. In 2002, this particular example won a Senior Award from the Buick Club of America and the 'A' Body of The Year award at the Buick Nationals. In 2010 it racked up Concours Gold awards at both the Buick Performance Group Nationals and GS Nationals.
Literally every nut and bolt on this GSX Stage 1 has been replaced to factory standards and showroom shine to ensure that it gets the most points possible from any discerning judge. Every weld and gap is perfect making for excellent panel fit and functionality giving this Buick a menacing, yet luxurious appearance. Chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add an element of class and luxury. The combination of black, white and chrome is complemented by small splashes of color like the rear GSX decals and red pin stripping around the GSX side stripe. Red, white and blue Buick tri-shield center caps are bolted to GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch Rallye wheels. Those stylish Rallye wheels are wrapped in reproduction Super Wide Oval tires as if the car had just left the factory.
Buick's mighty 455 big block V8 was one of the first motors to utilize thin wall casting and as a result is lighter than a comparable Chevrolet 454. Take one look under the hood at the numbers matching 455 and you'll see why this GSX is a gold winning car. Everything from the battery to the decals has been restored to showroom quality and nothing less than best of show. This particular GSX was up fitted from the factory with the Stage 1 performance package which added a hotter cam, bigger valves, low restriction Exhaust and revised jets in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.
This GSX also features Buick's Rallye Ride Control Package which includes a rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs and rear lower control arm assemblies. Connecting that massive power with this enhanced driving system is a factory option, numbers matching close-ratio 4-speed transmission. Equipped in only 188 Buick GSX's for 1970, that transmission sends the torque to the ground via 3.64 gears in a numbers matching high performance Buick Posi-Traction rear axle. At the front corners, factory power assisted discs and at the rear corners, factory power assisted drums bring everything to a stop. The guys at Then and Now topped off the restoration with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines, new brake lines, new body mounts and a fresh GM black undercoating.
This sale includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing the car to be GSX number 622 of 678 produced for 1970. Also included are Concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group Nationals as well as the Buick Club of America gold medal, affixed to the grille of the car, signifying senior award status. The car features a numbers matching 455 V8, a numbers matching 4 speed close ratio transmission and a numbers matching 3.64 high performance rear end. It is one of 178 Apollo White cars produced and one of 188 cars equipped with the manual transmission.
Even after 40 years the interior of the GSX still feels luxurious and comfortable. The gauge cluster consists of a clock and brightwork set against wood grain texture. The seats and door panels feature upgraded vinyl, adding to the fresh feeling created by the nicer GSX dash.
This gorgeous GSX has the hardware to satisfy your wants and the class to fulfill your needs. It has enough power under its hood, luxury behind its doors and trophies under its belt to make any car guy happy. The sale includes concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group Nationals and documentation from the GSX Historic Society. Call today for a chance to own this award winning car!

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.

1970 Buick GS STK 1409
With all the original parts still present and accounted for on this numbers
matching GS Stage 1, restoration merely involved rebuilding and
reinstalling the original engine, then returning each of the individual
components to as-new condition. Every finish was exactly duplicated, from
the front spoiler to the trunk wing. The engine bay looks at least as good
as it did the day it rolled out of the assembly plant (and probably
better). Every detail is correct, from the shift markings on the firewall,
to the stampings on the various parts, to the belts, hoses, and clamps. The
455 cubic inch engine runs ferociously, springing to life with a snarl from
the correct dual Exhaust system. For a
big block, this one sure likes to rev, and you'll want to wind it out
through all four gears with the 4 speed manual any time you get the chance,
just to hear the song it sings. The original heads come with the car and
are ready for installation if total pedigree is what your looking for.
This bright silver paint is about as sinister as they come. As a high
dollar investment grade car, no expense was spared on the body and
paintwork. Extra care was used to retain the original panels and then
straighten them to as new condition even the hood is believed to be the
original piece, as bright silver paint can be seen in the deepest corners
of the scoop. The condition of every component is further proof that this
car lived an easy life. Two stage urethane was used to finish the car, and
it looks spectacular in the sunlight. There's enough metallic to make it
glitter, but the silver is so rich that the term 'bright' does not
correctly describe how deep it looks.
Inside, you'll find the most spectacular original GS Stage 1 interior
you've ever seen. Look at the detailing on the seat pleats, and you'll know
these are artists seat covers. The steering wheel is an original piece,
restored to new condition and not a reproduction, although we cannot
confirm that it this car was originally 1 of 55 GS Stage 1 4 speeds it
doesn't seem all that improbable that the owner would have wanted the much
rarer manual transmission.. Does it hurt the value of the car? Not a bit.
Documentation, as you might imagine, is extensive. We have all the photos
from the restoration, which also shows the vital casting numbers and
stampings that you can't see any more now that the car is assembled. We
also have the build sheet, which is a nice bit of history. We have a pile
of receipts for all the restoration work. Then there's the experts, which
say of this car that it was one of the cleanest, most authentic and
original GS Stage 1's they have ever seen, and one of only a handful that
still carries the numbers matching 455 cubic inch with the 4 speed.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more
information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
134103 / 1972 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cnnngt9
This stunning Flame Orange GS is one of only 81 Stage 1 convertibles built
in '72, one of only 66 built with an automatic and is believed to be one of
25 identically optioned Buick Zone Office cars. Loaded with options and
fully documented, this is an investment-grade Buick convertible offered at
less than the cost of restoration.
The car was treated to a frame-off restoration in 2006, and has recently
been freshened for competition at the highest levels, including an all-new
fully functional factory A/C system. Flame Orange is an incredibly rare
color on an already rare car, and the bright hue was so far outside Buick's
comfort zone that only a handful were built. The paint is now two-stage
urethane which looks about a mile deep and has a shine that no '70s finish
could match. Just look at the way the panels line up, the way the light
reflects off the paint, and the care with which it was all assembled. It's
not surprising that this one has racked up some pretty impressive wins.
The engine is a date-code-correct WS-stamped warranty replacement block
that was installed not too long after the car was delivered. Why, we can't
say for certain, but it's probably easy to guess. But there's no doubt that
it's a correct GS Stage 1 block. The engine bay has been detailed for
national competition and given the list of awards it has already won, it's
clear that everything is correctly restored. Please note that new A/C
system uses 100% original components and blows ice cold today.
The TH400 in this ragtop is the original, numbers-matching piece, complete
with a crystal clear VIN stamp on the driver's side pan rail and a Stage 1
specific code BB tag is riveted to the passenger's side. Out back there's
an indestructible 12-bolt full of 3.42 gears on a Positraction limited
slip, which deliver neck-snapping acceleration and remarkably comfortable
high-speed cruising abilities. The frame wears a correct coat of satin
black, and the beautifully finished floors are the perfect background for
the restored suspension and braking systems. Gorgeous Buick chrome Rallys
wear correct Goodyear Polyglas bias-ply tires.
The glittering white vinyl "notchback" interior is bright enough to require
eye protection. There's fresh foam under those new seat covers, so the car
feels like new from behind the wheel, and the dash pad and instruments have
been completely restored. New black carpets show no signs of wear, and the
door panels don't even have that slight depression where the driver might
rest his elbow. As I mentioned, the A/C system is brand new and blows ice
cold, and this car also carries an optional 8-track tape player, which is
mounted below the dash and separate from the AM radio. Overhead there's a
professionally fitted white power convertible top that stashes itself
behind the seats in seconds, where it's hidden by a matching white boot.
Rare, fast and beautiful, this Buick GS Stage 1 is for the discerning
collector who knows the difference between a nice car and a great car. Big
block A-body convertibles remain top-quality investments, and Buicks are
starting to see some movement after decades of living in their corporate
cousins' shadows. Already a documented prize-winner at the very highest
levels, this lovely convertible represents the end of the great muscle
cars. If you've been looking for something different to add to your
collection, this GS is awfully hard to beat. Call today!

132578 / 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7tfm2jw
Equipped with a powerful big block motor and some of the best styling to
ever come out of General Motors, this super cool 1961 Biscayne cruiser is
an incredible amount of car for a relatively small amount of money.
Covered in GM code 912 Jewel Blue and topped with a correct GM code 959
white roof, this cars incredibly straight body still hangs all of its
original body panels with the exception of weight reducing fiberglass front
fenders. Those panels feature better than factory alignment and the cars
paint, which has been wet sanded and polished to a perfect shine, displays
no visible defects. The combination of excellent panel alignment and Kansas
flat body panels suggest that this Biscayne was completely disassembled
during its recent restoration and that many labor intensive hours were
likely spent making sure it received top notch finish work. All that time
and hard work paid off handsomely because it's one of the finest old school
Chevrolets I've seen in a very long time.
Mechanically, this Biscayne is all business. Under the hood you'll find a
newly rebuilt 396 cubic inch V8 that has been bored .030 over to 402 cubic
inches of fire breathing power. Factory rated at 375 horsepower it has no problem
carrying this relatively light Chevy down the road just as fast as you want
to go. At the top of the engine, a correct dual snorkel air cleaner wears a
chrome lid, smooth satin black paint and a proper "396 turbo Jet" decal. Below that air cleaner, a high
performance 4 barrel carburetor sends fuel from stainless fuel lines into a
correct Chevrolet Orange intake. At the sides of that intake, good looking
Chevrolet Orange valve covers sit above correct cast iron Exhaust manifolds that, despite a bit of rust
look clean and solid. At the back of the engine, a correct points
distributor sends power into correct 7MM black suppression wires, and in
front of the engine, a heavy duty radiator sits below a correct fan shroud
and circulates water through fresh black hoses.
Backing up the 402 cubic inch big block is an unbreakable TH400 3-speed
transmission that sends power to a rebuilt rear end with tall but highway
friendly 3.42 gears. During the restoration the cars original double A-arm
front and 3 link rear suspension was completely rebuilt and features new
air shocks out back and retrofitted power steering up front. Braking is
handled by a new firewall mounted brake Booster and master cylinder that sends fluid
to new drilled and slotted front discs brakes and correct and completely
rebuilt rear drums. Exhaust flows
through a 2.5 inch true dual system that is complete with stainless steel
pipes and high performance mufflers. Above the suspension rust free
floorpans are covered in a thin coat of protective undercoating and all
lines, hoses, brackets and fasteners, which were completely replaced at the
time of restoration, show little to no weathering. At the corners of the
car, chrome 18 inch front and 20 inch rear Coys wheels wear 255/35 Ventus
Sport Z-rated radials that look good and grip great.
This Biscayne's fully restored correct GM code 883 blue interior features
dynamic blue plaid seats that were fully rebuilt during the cars
restoration and are both cool and comfortable. Below the seats, new blue
carpet is properly fitted to the floors and shows no weathering or signs of
damage at all. At the top of the car, a light blue headliner is stretched
behind a chrome trimmed dome light and awesome two-tone sun visors. At the
front of the car, a simple painted blue dash features a correct radio
delete, chrome controls for the cars heater and accessories, and hangs an
Equus three pack gauge pod that keeps an accurate eye on the big block
engine In front of the driver, a horizontal speedometer sits in front of a
column mounted shifter and a correct blue steering wheel that features
bright chrome trim around a very cool Bel Air horn button.
This 1961 Chevrolet Biscayne is one of the last great no nonsense, no
frills designs to come out of Detroit, and it's the kind of car that your
family can enjoy for generations.
