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
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
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!

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. Call, click or visit

1987 Buick Grand National (Regal T-Type Turbo) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
**I made an editing error at the beginning. Thanks a bunch to Streetside
Classics of Charlotte, NC for allowing me to film this video!
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we will take an up close and personal in depth
look at the understated muscle car of the late 80s, the Buick Grand
National, this one specifically the Regal T-Type. The GN and the T-Type are
identical except for badging and interior trim. It wasn't until you
stepped it on up to the GNX did you get the truly different package (which
I will explain in the video). The GN is arguably the most menacing looking
buick of all time with it's black monochrome paint scheme and turbo charged 3.8 V6 pumping out amazing
performance numbers for the time period, even today! A unique experience
to be able to check out one of these beasts. During this presentation, we
will take a 1st person look at what the vehicle is all about beginning with
the start up, performance data, fuel economy, the occasional track data,
and build quality. Also, I will teach you how to use most of the interior
and exterior features in a detailed fashion, that before, you could only
get from going to a dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will
highlight key styling and unique differences about the vehicle, any
available options, and of course it would not be an enthusiast car video
without the good ole engine portion with rev and Exhaust note with interior and exterior
perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth reviews/tour of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

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.
