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 The result is an unpublished rating of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.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!
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.
134009 / 1964 Chevrolet Impala SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/caatc8z
Professionally restored and powered by an era-correct Chevrolet V8, this impressive Impala SS is the kind of fully sorted cruiser that you can fire up, press the go pedal and road trip across the country in!
Logging only weekend miles since its complete frame-off restoration, this top-of-the-line Chevy still displays immaculate bodywork that simply glistens under our bright showroom lighting. A lot of time and effort was put into making sure this big cruiser was extremely straight, which resulted in chiseled sheetmetal that's completely wave-free. That time was well spent as better-than-factory panel gaps perfectly center hinged pieces which move freely and close with a solid thunk. And those thunks are bathed in a rich layer of familiar GM code 918 Azure Aqua Metallic that's been sealed in a rugged clearcoat shell and buffed to a spectacular shine.
Powering this real-deal Super Sport is a 327 cubic inch, era-correct V8 which wears a traditional 3782870 casting number behind a roster of correct equipment. And all of that, from the Chevy Orange paint and satin black fenders to the reproduction Delco battery and glass GM washer fluid bottle, is nicely detailed and ready to both show and go.
One look underneath this sturdy cruiser reveals a solid X-frame chassis that's just as ready for the road as that stout 327. Power is put to the pavement by an era-correct Muncie 4-speed which wears a familiar 3851325 casting number. Holding that virtually unbreakable transmission off the ground is a restored double A-arm front and three link rear suspension. That suspension's handling is greatly enhanced by factory power steering and power drum brakes that are piped to a fresh master cylinder and an equally fresh brake Booster. And at the corners of the floors, standard 14 inch steel wheels spin modern Hankook Steel Radials around Super Sport specific wheel covers.
Covered in a contrasting white sheen, this Chevy's great looking interior has been restored to factory-fresh condition in virtually every way. The SS-specific front bucket and rear bench seats feel newer than the car's 48 years would suggest, and present just as well now as the day they rolled out of the upholstery shop. In front of those seats, a restored blue dash is chock full of rebuilt gauges, carries what appears to be an original Delco AM radio, and features a sharp and correctly centered tachometer. At the base of that dash a stylish, SS-specific console props a chrome shifter in from of a small, lockable storage compartment. And in front of the driver, a deluxe steering wheel spins around a traditional red, white and blue Chevrolet horn button.
It's really no surprise that these cars are amazingly popular with almost everyone who sees them because they have such a great combination of style, presence and performance. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome Impala Super Sport!

134031 / 2011 Ford Mustang GT Pace Car
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/co66g8r
After a 40 year absence, a bright red Ford, just like the showroom-fresh gem you see here, was picked to pace the 2010 edition of NASCAR's Great American Race. Ford was so excited with the announcement that they decided to release a limited run of 2011 Mustang Pace Car replicas. And this coupe, number 9 of only 50 produced, is equipped with the same 412 horsepower V8, slick 6-speed transmission and pack-leading appearance as its original Daytona muse.
The car's super straight body displays a glossy coat of Ford Race Red that, based on its smooth appearance, has never been driven in rain, parked under inclement skies or seen much time outside of a building at all. And that bright red pigment lays the ground work for a blanket of professional pace car decals which are tastefully unique and equally interesting.
Of course this garage-fresh Mustang presents well, but the car's biggest selling point is what's under its sculpted hood. Looking completely sanitary between body-matched fenders and an insulated firewall is a state of the art 5.0 liter Ford 'mod motor' that's rated at a pavement scorching 412 horsepower and a hefty 390 lb./ft. of torque. Officially named the Coyote motor, and officially found on Ward's prestigious Ten Best Engines list, this all-aluminum road rocket utilizes redesigned cylinder heads, 32 light weight valves, variable valve timing, a long runner single scroll intake, a direct mount throttle body, a forged steel crank, forged steel connecting rods and oil-cooled hypereutectic pistons to create a stout 11 to 1 compression ratio and a lofty 7,000 RPM redline. Aesthetically, the compact engine is tidy with "Powered by Ford" cam covers and a nicely detailed "5.0" fuel rail cover concealing most of its factory silver block. And the race-inspired engine bay, topped by a pace car-specific strut brace, is clean of any extraneous wires, bulky hose installations or sloppy aftermarket bolt-ons.
Behind that engine, there's a slick-shifting Getrag 6-speed that twists an optional 3.73 limited slip rear end. Since the original pace car's chassis had to be tuned for speed and steeply banked turns, this production version combines new electronic power steering with a few Ford Racing components to achieve better handling characteristics. And, in an appeal to both the car's aggressive image and great track prowess, massive 19-inch alloy wheels were covered in slick graphite paint and mounted to high quality 245/45 Pirelli P Zero Neros.
Drop inside this pristine, polished pony and you'll immediately notice that its optional California Special seats are every bit as comfortable as they are attractive. In front of those seats, a familiar Mustang dash seals intricately detailed gauges behind faux carbon fiber trim and a 12 volt power outlet. Below that power outlet, a Shaker 500 stereo system combines with Sirius Satellite radio and Ford's revolutionary SYNC system to become a one-stop shop for all your electronic needs. And naturally, all the luxuries you'd expect in a high dollar muscle car are present and accounted for including: cruise control, power windows, power door locks, power mirrors with built in blind spots, a power driver's seat, and remote keyless entry that's complete with built in theft deterrent software.
There's no question this Mustang mixes instant collectability with some seriously threatening performance hardware. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today for more information on this awesome Ford!

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!
