134023 / 1970 Buick GSX

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cweedua 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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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.

132149 / 1970 Plymouth GTX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7vw9dmc Given a nut-and-bolt restoration by RK Motors, this matching-numbers V-code 1970 GTX is truly sublime. The paint and bodywork are concours-grade, so good that you can see the quality in the photos. Those massive quarter panels are straight, straight, straight, and the body gaps are better than new. Look again at how well the deck lid fits and then go try to find another '70 GTX that looks that good—you just won't. Correct satin black stripes were added to the Air Grabber hood to duplicate the Performance Hood Treatment, and along the sides of the car terminating in the scoops in the rear quarters. Remove the hood pins on the Air Grabber hood, and underneath you'll find the original V-code High Performance 440 Six-Pack Super Commando engine. The engine was rebuilt to stock specs during the restoration, and even though the car was getting a mild update, that didn't mean that the engine bay needed anything. Everything is factory-correct, from the Hemi Orange paint on the block, to the hoses and clamps, to the red cap reproduction battery. Up top, the Six Pack carburetion system was rebuilt and tucked away under that massive air cleaner. The only non-stock addition to the horsepower department is a set of beautifully made and finished long-tube headers which give this big block Mopar a little more high-end horsepower. The chassis was where a bulk of the modifications were made, but again, there's nothing that can't be unbolted and returned to stock in a weekend if a pure stock GTX is what you're after. Detailed for show, everything is new, from the lines and hoses to the gas tank, as well as that beautifully finished stainless steel Exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers. The transmission is the original 4-speed manual that came with the car, and out back is a stout Dana with the Track Pac option, and stuffed with 3.54 gears. Up front, the original suspension was modified with a set of coil-over shocks and fat sway bars, along with a tighter steering box for improved steering feel. In back, lighter leaf springs and upgraded shocks were installed to make the chassis more responsive, and polyurethane bushings were used throughout to improve precision and tracking. Wilwood disc brakes were installed at all four corners, finally giving this Mopar the braking power to match the horsepower that it has had all along. Rounding out the modifications is a set of custom-built billet aluminum wheels with blacked-out centers and polished rims. Tires are Michelin Pilots with 17s up front and 18s out back. Restored to 100% stock specifications, the black bucket seat interior of this car is every bit as comfortable as it looks. The seats have been given new foam and seat covers, which feature gray piping for a little bit of contrast, and a center armrest to add to the luxury feel. New black carpets are on the floor, protected by GTX logo floor mats, and a new headliner has been installed as well. The gauges were rebuilt, including the Tic-Toc-Tach, and there's a correct Pistol Grip shifter atop the 4-speed transmission. The trunk was also finished to OEM standards, with a new mat and full-sized spare and jack assembly. This is one we built for ourselves, so you know it's a #1 quality car in every way. If you've been looking for a GTX, but most seem too ordinary to you, maybe this is what you've been searching for. Give us a call today!





134081 / 1971 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/c2tsujv If you're in the market for some spectacular muscle that has tons of character and an unbeatable price, we have the car for you! Looking mean and sounding positively evil, this killer green Buick rolled off GM's Flint, Michigan assembly line during the fifth week of November, 1970 and began a life of bare-knuckle pavement domination. Recently, the car benefitted from a thorough frame-up restoration during which every aspect of its body was massaged and aligned to showroom-fresh standards. Once those sculpted panels were rock-solid and fully functional, a correct coat of GM code 42 Willowmist Green was sealed under a thick clearcoat shell and buffed to a vivid, glossy shine. And today, this Buick sits as a rare and unique classic that draw stares, looks like a million bucks from any angle, and is exactly the kind of no-nonsense muscle car you never get tired of showing off! The original 455 cubic inch Stage 1 V8 that's bolted between this car's freshly detailed fenders is the kind of powerhouse that makes people either put up or shut up. Turn the key and a familiar Quadrajet carburetor mixes air from a black, dual-snorkel cleaner with fuel that's supplied by carefully bent stainless, and shoves it into a correct cast iron intake. Fire for that air/fuel mixture is provided by a GM points distributor which shoots sparks around attractive chrome valve covers via high quality AC Delco plug wires. Spent gases from that air/fuel mixture are jetted through correct, cast iron manifolds that dump into a great sounding true dual Exhaust system. And cooling for that combustion is provided by a factory radiator that circulates water around an old school Frigidaire AC system via reproduction GM hoses and brand new tower clamps. Oh, and did I mention the big red engine carries a correct 1231738 casting number behind a matching partial VIN stamp? You'll recall that I used the word "unique" to describe this GS in my opening comments. Well, it doesn't get much more unique, in a virtual sea of automatic Buicks, than this car's modern Tremec TKO600 5-speed. That smooth transmission sends power from a shielded 11 inch clutch to a 10 bolt Posi-traction rear end that's equipped with easy-driving highway gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a familiar double A-arm front and four link rear suspension that's equipped with a factory power steering system, an upgraded steering box, heavy duty sway bars and quality Edelbrock shocks. And power flows to the pavement via fresh chrome Rally wheels which spin 215/70R15 Toyo Extensa A/S whitewalls around tri-shield center caps. Pop this coupe's sculpted doors open and you'll find an awesome code 165 Ivory interior that, according to the car's current owner, is completely original equipment. Comfy seats and fade-free door panels mix with a stain-free headliner and clean carpet to provide big-time contrast to the car's Willowmist Green exterior. In front of those seats, a straight and original dash hangs crystal clear gauges, a correct AM/FM radio and fresh wood trim above slick digital accessory gauges. And in front of the driver, a familiar Buick Sport wheels spins satin-finished spokes around a red-lined horn button. In summary, this 1971 Buick is a phenomenal car that, from the ground up, likely couldn't be duplicated for anywhere near our asking price.

133106 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/96hghcs Here at RK Motors, we've been rolling out some world class Buick GSXs lately. Our latest addition to the arsenal is a frame-off restored Saturn Yellow 1970 GSX Stage 1 which has won so many awards recently that you might need an extra trailer to haul them around. Nothing was left untouched as this GSX was given a professional, frame-off rotisserie restoration. Every weld and gap is exceptional, giving this bold and luxurious Buick the ability to win major points from any judge in any organization. Step back and admire the consistency of the yellow paint across every panel. Close the door to hear the confident thud that gave Buick a reputation for rock solid cars. Take a moment to follow the GSX side stripe as it flows to the back of the car and lines up perfectly with the centered GSX spoiler decal. The first thing a judge will notice when he walks up to this car is a sense of craftsmanship in the details. The pristine red and white GSX decals and red pin stripping combine with the Saturn Yellow and black paint to really set the car off. New chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add the substance and class expected from a Buick. The factory hood mounted tachometer completes the look and acts as a nice conversation piece. Original equipment red, white and blue Buick tri-shield center caps adorn Buick GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch Rallye wheels. Completing the look are reproduction Super Wide Oval tires just like the tires the car left the factory with. Under the hood of this GSX resides a concours restored correct date coded 455 with the Stage 1 performance option. When up-fitted from the factory with the Stage 1 performance package, the 455 benefitted from a hotter cam, bigger valves, low restriction Exhaust and revised jets in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. Buick claimed that the car made 360 horsepower, but testing showed that it actually produced around 425hp. This GSX has no difficulty putting the power to the ground as it comes equipped with the optional Rallye Ride Control Package. Rallye Ride Control features a rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs and rear lower control arm assemblies. Factory power assisted front disc and rear drum brakes and variable ratio power steering keep everything under control. Backing that 455 is a numbers matching, concours restored GM TH400 3 Speed automatic. That hydramatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels through a numbers matching Posi-Traction rear end with 3.42 gears and a Buick high performance axle. On the inside high quality vinyl seats and door panels are highlighted by perfect red GS emblems and chrome trim. Optional custom front and rear seatbelts with custom front shoulder belts and a full length console add to the already impressive design. A factory optioned Rallye steering wheel serves as the focal point and looks right at home in front of the upgraded GSX dash. Featured in that dash is a factory option chrome trimmed gauge and clock package and the correct Sonomatic AM radio. The sell includes a CD of pictures documenting the frame-off concours rotisserie restoration of the car at Then and Now Automotive. It also includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing this car to be GSX number 543 of 678 produced for 1970 and one of only 213 cars to include the TH400 transmission. Included documentation from the Sloan Registry features percentages of vehicles registered by state and year as well as options sheet break downs, factory correspondence and marketing material. Awards include a 2010 concours gold plaque from the GS Nationals, a 2010 concours gold plaque from the Buick Performance Group Nationals and a Best of Show plaque from South East Rods and Customs. There are nice cars and there are rare and significant cars which define an era. The GSX is one of those cars and one of the most significant Buicks ever produced. Fully documented and a national show winner; this GSX is the right example for any serious Buick collector.
