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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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.

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

132476 / 1967 Shelby GT500
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/83a859j
This knock- out 1967 Shelby GT500 tribute features many ORIGINAL '67 GT500
parts and is as close as you can get to one of those documented $200K cars
for a third of the price. This 1967 Mustang retains all of its original
sheet metal and was recently restored from a 289 4-speed car into a GT500
thoroughbred. The Candy Apple Red paint has been finished to show quality
standards and the white stripes along the top of the car and call outs
along the rockers have been properly painted instead of decaled. Fully
rebuilt and detailed for top-level shows, the C6ME 428 Police Interceptor
in this GT500 is completely correct and features dual 4 barrel carburetors
with a correct linkage that were original equipment on a '67 GT500. Under
those carburetors, an original '67 GT500 2x4 intake manifold feeds Cobra
Jet heads with solid lifers. Underneath, this GT500 you'll find a chassis
that is as well detailed and correct as its big block engine. The
transmission is a correct big spline 4-speed top loader which drives an
indestructible Ford 9-inch rear which features a correct traction lok 3.50
gear set. At the corners of the car, correct 15 inch chrome Kelsey Hayse
wheels look fantastic and wear modern 235/60 BF Goodrich radials. Inside
the cockpit you'll find a correct black bucket seat interior that is brand
new, courtesy of the RK Motors Charlotte trim shop and an original '67
GT500 roll bar complete with original '67 GT500 seat belts. This
authentically restored 1967 Shelby GT500 tribute has a nice selection of
original GT500 parts and can be driven with abandon, and more importantly
without fear of destroying the value of your 401K.

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.
