133287 / 1970 Buick GSX
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d4369ag As a mostly original head turner that spent most of its life in a high end Japanese car collection, this non-Stage GSX is undoubtedly one of the finest investment opportunities we've ever featured! If you're looking for some killer Detroit metal that has an outstanding history and an impressive level of performance, Buick built it and RK Motors Charlotte is selling it! Looking sinister and feeling solid, this GSX carries 100% of its original sheetmetal and today, thanks to one repaint and a life of collection and museum time, the car's mirror-like profile is a largely flaw-free celebration of factory authenticity. Naturally, panel gaps are excellent throughout and everything seals up tight and rattle-free. And the car's finish is brilliant, using modern pigment to achieve a depth and gloss that makes it impossible to ignore at a show or on the street. You probably noticed that I opened this description with the words "non-Stage Buick". That's because this GSX actually carries the more street-friendly version of Buick's 455 that is rated at 350 horsepower and 510 lb./ft. of torque. Think that's a bad thing? Think again. Only 278 of Buick's 1970 GSX units were equipped with the non-Stage 455, as opposed to 400 Stage 1 cars. So, if you're looking for a highly collectible tri-shield, you've definitely found it! Hoist this coupe's three-color hood and you'll find a mechanically freshened, and aesthetically pleasing, Buick big block which wears a correct 1231738 casting number, an April (D) 28th (28) of 1970 casting date and a correct partial VIN. At the top of that vivid red block a familiar Rochester Quadrajet carburetor mixes oxygen from functional ram air hood scoops with dino juice that's supplied by original stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that carburetor, free flowing heads hang stamped steel valve covers over deep breathing cast iron Exhaust manifolds. In front of those manifolds, a traditional points distributor shoots fire through new Packard TV R Suppression wires. And in front of that distributor, a gloss black radiator circulates coolant through pliable hoses and authentic tower clamps. Behind that big engine a rugged, and original, turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission hangs a correct partial VIN and a non-Stage 455 (BA) assembled on April 28th (483) of 1970 (70) build plate in front of a familiar 10 bolt rear end that's complete with tall 3.90 gears. At the ends of that drivetrain an original Rally Ride Control suspension, which includes stiffer springs, a rear stabilizer bar and a rear lower control arm assembly, combines with factory power steering and factory power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide quick stops and great handling. And at the corners of that chassis, torque flows to the pavement through four chrome Magnum 500s which spin fresh 245/60R15 Goodyear Eagle STs around clean red, white and blue center caps. And speaking of floors the car's straight and solid pans, which are bolted to a damage-free frame, still hang 99% of their satin black paint over satin black suspension components that still retain much of their factory shine. Climb inside this timeless Buick muscle car and you'll find a mostly original GM code 188 interior that is both comfortable and appealing. Covered in pliable Madrid Grain surfaces, the car's firm front bucket and rear bench seats are comfortable, solid and provide spacious seating for at least four. At the center of the cockpit, an optional stainless-trimmed console props an original horse shoe shifter above like-new black carpet, heavy duty rubber floor mats and new sill plates. Above that console, a warp-free dash hangs bright wood applique between original Rally gauges and an original Sonomatic radio. Connecting the driver to the road is a great looking original steering wheel which carefully positions three satin-finished spokes around a small "BUICK" branded horn button. And behind the passengers, a virtually untouched trunk frames an original factory decklid decal, a full-size spare tire and a high quality houndstooth mat. If you're a fan of ultimate Detroit muscle cars that are as pure as they are cool, it just doesn't get any better than this awesome yellow Buick!

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.
