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?"

Just a quick walk around and drive of my friends '70 GS Stage 1. John Osborne did the frame, trans, rear, engine, ran all the lines and wiring, brakes, etc. Indigo Blue Chevy paint.

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.

1970 Buick GSX "The Hemi Killer"
Here is the Holy Grail of the GM/Buick Musclecars and is better known as the Hemi killer. Truly one of the fastest, and rarest, musclecars of all time. Meet the beautiful 1970 Buick GSX Stage I. Largest torque rating of all 1970 cars at 510 lb/ft and a grossly underrated horsepower of 360. These cars were scary fast right off the showroom floor and few cars of the era came close to them at the strip. This desirable Saturn Yellow example has been restored from the ground up and is in period-correct, pristine condition. It has been restored according to factory specs and is currently optioned just like it was in 1970. Full numbers-matching drivetrain. This car also has won the Buick Nationals on several occasions and has done so as recently as 2007. It is unbelievably documented. We're talking Protecto-Plate, Original Framed Sales Invoice, build sheet, and a broadcast sheet that was found under the carpet. Also comes with all the original dealer paperwork and a lot of ownership history. A true southerner, it was sold new in Atlanta, GA on May 12, 1970. The buyer traded in a 1969 Buick Riviera and drove out in this musclecar legend. Only around 400 GSX Stage I's were ever produced. Own a piece of American history. They don't build them like this anymore! For more details call us at toll free (866)542-8392 or (704)598-2130.





1970 Buick GS 455 Burnout and Pass
Buick built a number of great sleepers in the '60s and '70s, since they were known for style and comfort rather than all out performance. Buick's big block, the 455 powered a number of high performance muscle cars, including this all black 1970 Buick Gran Sport. This car is a real sleeper with its all black paint and base model wheels, but it runs low 12's in the quarter. This video was taken at the 2012 Buick GS Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
