1971 Buick GS (Gran Sport) Convertible
What a great car! Original owner! It has the Buick 350 c.i. engine under
Great hood scoops, hood mounted tachometer. The paint and interior are
flawless. The 8 track tape player still works! Buick was right up there
with its GM stablemates of Chevelle, GTO, and Cutlass in offering great
performance machines. Based on the same chassis, they still maintained
their individual identities! Those were the days!

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.

Power is supplied by a NOM 455 CI engine that boasts 315hp and a whopping
450ft-lbs of ground pounding torque. With the functional GS Ram-Air hood
and air cleaner, power is always there for you when you need it most. Gear
changes are handled by the durable and strong turbo 400 automatic. Power steering and power
brakes are all there for your comfort driving needs. New full dual
stainless Exhaust gives this sexy
Buick such a sweet sound and has people looking to see what's coming down
the road as you approach. Rolling on Buick GS Rally wheels that are wrapped
in new radial tires, this rag-top is ready to go. The upgraded Optima
Red-Top Battery keeps all the power flowing and reliable.
The exterior is dressed in its original color of Cortez Gold (Q-53) with
Black (2) convertible top and Black (138) interior. Muscle with a touch
of class was Buick's pride and it really shows with this outstanding GS.
The options for this bad boy include power windows, dash clock (which is
still working great), Buick Sports Steering Wheel, front duck bill spoiler,
rear deck lid spoiler and even an under dash mount original Buick Tissue
Dispenser. The car has a neat Buick "Speed Control" option which let's you
adjust a top speed limit on the speedometer and warns you with a buzzer
when you go past you pre-determined limit. This is also a factory AC car
and we are happy to report the AC is blowing cold and works great. Oil
pressure, water temp, and volt gauges were added and mounted under the dash
to keep the original form of the interior but let you watch the big 455's
vital signs. This GS 455 Convertible has a totally cool 70's look and some
neat features you just want get anywhere else. A Muscle Car drop top
doesn't get much better so call today!
