'66 Buick Back From The Dead! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 5
On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we raise a '66 Buick from the dead. After spending 33 years sitting outside in the desert, the broken down Buick Special is revived by David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD and Rick Pewe of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. Rick's mother bought the car when it was near new and parked it when the transmission failed in 1978. In 2011, the guys spent two and a half days wrenching on the car, with the hopes of driving it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. Come along for the ride and see what happens! HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & http://facebook.com/hotrodmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/101867967859016552744/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com & http://www.hotrod.com

Buick - History Documentary (1995)
This video is a wonderfully-done documentary, written and produced by Michael Rose, on the history of Buick as presented in 1995 from the History Channel's archive. Here is Michael's description of the video verbatim: "No one would have believed that the tinkering of a plumber would turn into the foundation of the world's largest corporation. But it did. David Dunbar Buick invented a process to adhere porcelain to tubs and other bathroom fixtures. But the Scottish immigrant dreamed of making a mark out of the bathroom, and set to work building a car. By 1900, he enlisted the aid of another inventor, Walter Marr, and they built their first vehicle. Their invention attracted the attention of one of Michigan's wealthiest men, William Crapo Durant, the president of the world's largest buggy-building business. As soon as he drove one of Buick's early creations, Durant realized that the days of the horse and buggy were over. He teamed up with Buick, and the two went on to make history. By the thirties, Buicks were regarded as some of the finest cars ever made. From the first Buicks through the birth of General Motors and into history, this is the compelling story of the partnership that eventually became the basis for the largest company in the world."





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!

Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • 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.





1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1, with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two, loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011 issue of HOT ROD Magazine.





Barn Find '66 Buick Hits the Autocross! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 18
On this bonus episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, it's the return of our '66 Buick Special convertible. In episode 5, we showed you how this car had been abandoned in an Arizona backyard for 33 years with the top down. Freiburger and Finnegan flew into town, got the car running with the help of Rick Pewe from 4-Wheel & Off-Road magazine, and drove it home to Los Angeles. Watch that original episode here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLWndk3-tuk) The car proved to be a ton of fun, so now we are turning it into a daily driver. In this video, Freiburger and Camaro Performers magazine's Nick Licata bring you along for the autocross, slalom and brake testing of the car's all-new performance suspension from Classic Performance Products (CPP). It's a sight you won't soon forget.

134283 / 1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/pp2mfqt When GM lifted their ban of engines larger than 400 cubic inches in intermediate cars, the Buick camp responded with a legendary piece of muscle car history. The GS was the go-to for anyone who put equal emphasis on pure comfort and brute power. This Sloan-documented 1970 GS 455 is the beneficiary of an extensive frame-off restoration which has already claimed some significant awards. Accolades include a Concours Gold First Senior award at the 2012 Buick Club of America Nationals. While Buick's GSX made its presence loud and clear with two strong color options, the GS455 went about things in a slightly more sophisticated way. This GS 455 wears a refreshing mix of fresh Burgundy Mist and Glacier White paint for a refined appearance. Only the functional hood scoops hint at the cars performance capabilities. All brightwork has been polished or replaced, including the showroom fresh bumpers which were rechromed by Tri-City Plating. Inside the car, Buick design remains at the forefront. An all new Pearl White interior from Legendary Auto Interiors offers new carpet, bucket seats, door panels, and a taut new headliner. Presentation is great thanks to details like freshly rechromed center console trim and a new steering wheel. Upgrades include a full Custom Autosound stereo system with direct iPod connection. The stock Buick 455 was a strong engine, offering a factory rated 360 horsepower and 510 lb. /ft. of torque but this GS takes things to the next level. Lift the hood and a deceptively stock-appearing bay hosts a fully rebuilt 470ci Buick motor full of high-quality parts. Built by Tri-Shield Performance, the block hosts pieces like Diamond forged pistons, Eagle H-beam rods, and a TA cam. At the top, a ported stock intake works alongside ported and polished aluminum SE Stage 1 heads to help make a stout 507 horsepower. Behind that powerhouse, TH400 automatic transmission rebuilt by TSP spins power back to a 12-bolt rear with versatile 3.31 gears. At either side, headers connect to a 3-inch dual Exhaust system complete with an X-pipe and Flowmaster 50 series mufflers. To the rear, a new Quantum fuel tank and RobbMc fuel pump keep the big Buick properly fed. During restoration, the frame was sand blasted and painted with an industrial urethane before being joined by all new suspension components. Power front disc brakes and rear drums provide plenty of stopping power while a fully rebuilt power steering system ensures confidence through the corners. The chassis meets the road through new Wheel Vintiques Buick Rally wheels wrapped in Goodyear Polylgas tires. Offering a near-perfect blend of show and go, this award-winning 1970 GS 455 is a great reminder of Buick's performance heritage and a resounding "Yes" to the old slogan, "Wouldn't you really rather have a Buick?"
