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.

What I have to say about the 2013 Lacrosse: When it was redesigned back in
2010, it got all of the headlines in the automotive industry. Now in its
2013 model year its actually one of the most underrated cars. The cabin on
the inside of the Lacrosse is where it stands out and there's is so much
attention to detail and the technology in the car is great with a Pandora
and Sticher radio interface. The control layout is cluttered, however it
has very great ergonomics. The Lacrosse also has a very nice subdue and
quiet ride, however there is some blindspot the backup camera does help and
you can get a Blind Spot Monitoring system. All in all great car from
Buick. Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!
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.
