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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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!
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• Harry Fisher
In stock form, the 1955 Buick Special could best be described as a "nice"
car. It's not drop dead gorgeous like a 1959 Impala, nor does it have the
panache of say a 1956 Chrysler 300. You see the '55 Buick Special was a
working mans car. It had room enough for the whole family, a decent
power-plant thanks to its 264 cubic inch V8, and style that was, well...
above average. Harry Fisher or "Uncle Harry" as most people know him, saw
the old Buick a bit differently though. He knew that with a few little
touches (like a 502 cubic inch big-block, modern suspension, and a new set
of wheels) that this old Buick had the potential to become one of the
baddest hot-rods around.
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.

information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.

This Rallye Green 1969.5 Road Runner A12 offers 100% matching numbers, the
original Chrysler Corporation Broadcast Sheet, an unusual and lengthy list
of options, and just 40,000 original miles. The paint was refreshed last
year, but all the sheetmetal is OEM. Inside, the interior appears to be all
original, except for perhaps the rear seat, which is so nice it's hard to
believe it's 40 years old. And the engine and transmission have never been
out of the car, running as only low-mileage original pieces can.
Beautifully maintained and highly optioned, this A12 stands out.

car for a purist who wants an authentic '56 Bel Air that can be driven and
enjoyed to its full potential. The car retains its original GM code 700
Sierra Gold over Adobe Beige paint scheme. The original body panels and

since the car rolled off the assembly line in August of 1956. Under the
hood of this car you'll find the original Chevrolet smallblock 265 V8 with

was completely rebuilt in 2008 and has seen less than 2,000 miles since
that rebuild. Underneath the car, the frame and floor pans are finished in
satin black for durability and drivability and are in great condition. The
original Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt less than
4,000 miles ago and correct leaf springs and drum brakes at all four
corners show no major rust and this factory optioned dual Exhaust car is currently equipped with a dual Exhaust system that is complete with
stainless tips. Connecting this car to the ground is Uniroyal Tiger Paw
radials that have only 3,000 miles of wear. Those radials are wrapped
around original 14 inch steel wheels with original restored aluminum
Chevrolet hub caps that are in great shape. The interior on this '56 Bel
Air is 90% original and unrestored in its GM code 618 Tan with Copper trim
color scheme with original factory optioned padded dash. If you're a purist
that has been looking for an authentic Tri-five in a sea of 'catalogue
parts cars' that can be driven and shown with pride, RK Motors Charlotte
