1972 Buick GS Stage 1 does the quarter mile at Muslepalooza and Wins!!!
My dads all original (minus one repaint), # matching 1972 Buick GS Stage 1 auto does the quarter mile at Musclepalooza @ Lebanon Vally Raceway. The drivetrain has never been touched and has 110,000 miles on it. This wasn't the fastest run as his first run (and first time ever with this car) ran a 14.43 if he had traction off the line the times would probably be closer to 14 flat. He ran a 14.61 @ 94mph and wins!!!

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.
9 Second Buick GS Stage1
This was the car's 1st 9 sec. pass. Built around the GS Club Of America's GS Street Eliminator Class rules. A real street car naturally aspirated with a complete Exhaust system,full interior etc. It is the first GS to run in the 9's using the original cast iron Stage1 heads, under the GSE rules! It is a stock stroke 455 with an .038 overbore to give it 464ci. It weighs 3500lbs and it idles smooth enough to still run the power brakes! This pass was firstname.lastname@example.org mph and was backed up with a 9.99@ 132.7 run.

1972 Buick GS STK 1404
By now, everyone knows better than to mess with the big, bad, 455 GS Buicks, right? Bordering on insanely overpowered from the factory, a few bolt-on parts can turn these flying bricks into weapons that will leave Dodge Viper owners sobbing. Sinister in that bright red paint job, this well-restored, 700-mile car tells you all you need to know about Buick performance in the late �70s. Sure the shape of the body says conservative, but the way it�s dressed smacks you like a two-by-four to the back of the head. The N25 bumper package and with a hood tack and 3 piece spoiler makes the exclamation point. You just can�t miss these cars driving down the road, and by the time you�ve seen one, it�s already too late�you won�t catch it and the new stainless steel brakes will help keep it under control. On this particular car, the paint is in good condition all around with factory panel alignment. The red is glossy and deep, exactly the way you want it on one of these cruisers. There are a few touch-ups here and there�the car is, after all, 39 years old�but even with a numbers matching GS it�s clear that this car was never used as a daily driver. All the glass is good, and the seals are supple, suggesting that this car has been properly treated for its entire life. There are no signs of damage to the bumpers, no little nicks on the leading edge of the nose, and the flanks are thankfully free of parking lot door dings. This is a nice car that presents well, and you know how hard it is to make red look good!
The engine on this car is 100% stock, except the original heads. In the car are T/A aluminum heads port and polished that add that little extra someth'n, someth'n when you mash the gas. With almost all of the original equipment still intact. Look at the pictures and you can see how well-maintained this car is. Everything is in very good condition and it�s obvious that this car has never seen snow. There�s not any additional flash under there, but it is 95% factory original and correct, which is probably a lot more important on a relatively rare car like this one. The 455 cubic inch motor is backed by the ultra-reliable T400 automatic, a transmission which has served honorably and faithfully behind these big block motors. Out back there�s a set of 3.42 gears in posi trac pumpkin, offering great off-the-line go and impressive high-speed cruising abilities.
The stock black GS interior is just as impressive as the exterior. The dashboard is pure original. A set off Sunpro gauges mounted just below the radio helps keep tabs on the performance of thie monster under the hood. Regal, with the long, rectangular speedometer augmented by a small bar graph style tachometer and Boost gauge. The upholstery is in excellent condition with no excessive wear, and certainly no rips, tears, or stains anywhere. The headliner is perfect, the carpets look almost new, and the dashboard has no sign of cracking or sun damage. The A/C blows cold, the AM/FM stereo woks properly, and the car is ready for a summer�s worth of cruising and stop light grand prix.
This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.
