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.
1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!!
1970 Buick Wildcat, Convertible, 455 V8, Rust Free, FOR SALE!
This is a rust free Wildcat Convertible (Body Style 67) with the 455 V-8
and 83k miles since new. This is an incredibly rare Wildcat Convertible
with the highly desirable matching numbers 455 cu in big block V-8 with
Rochester four barrel carburetor. 1970 was the last year for the Buick
Wildcat and was the only year for the formidable 455 V-8!
This is likely that out of only 1,244 Wildcat Convertibles only about 200
were made in this configuration since the vast majority of the Wildcats
were specified with the 350... and what a difference the big block makes!
This example is presented in Signal Red and has seen one average quality
repaint since new. The coachwork has a few minor "door dings" and other
imperfections but overall is in good condition and the paint finish is
quite serviceable. We thoroughly examined this for bondo and rust and
found the body to be in very good condition with no signs of rust or
significant body damage. Overall this motorcar can be presented at local
car shows but in not a concours contender.
The interior is a combination of original and new replacement. There are a
couple of dash pad cracks and minor imperfection but overall the interior
is in good condition and very serviceable as is. The top is newer and in
very good condition. The chrome is in good to excellent condition. This
example is also equipped with factory air conditioning that is presently
The '70 Wildcats went out with an all new 455 cid V8, rated at 370 hp and a
pavement pounding 510 lb-ft of torque. This new 455 engine had a 10:1
compression ratio, a cast iron block, hydraulic lifters, five main
bearings, and a four barrel carburetor. This drivetrain provided
performance of 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 126 mph!
Unfortunately while at the top of it's performance peak, the Wildcat's
sales dropped considerably and the Wildcat was dropped completely from the
This example was sold new in Arizona in March of 1970. It remained in
Arizona except for a brief stint as part of a collection in Ohio (although
we are uncertain whether the car ever left the state). It is presently in
excellent mechanical condition as it has accumulated about 2,000 miles in
the last few months!!
This motorcar is in good condition overall and can be used for extensive
touring, car shows or as a daily driver!!
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
TA Wagon out racing and taking names. Theres a list of whats under the hood
at the end.
Bad-Ass Buick: 1955 Special - /BIG MUSCLE
• 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.
