Once upon a time, Buick was the best-selling luxury brand in America! A bean bag chair would have provided better lateral support than those seats, but of course, that's not what this car was about...

135303 / 1970 Buick GS455 Stage 1
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/nereaqn Immaculately maintained for 45 years, and certified Gold by the Buick GS Club of America, this national award winning GS is just the car you've been looking for! BODYWORK/TRIM Known throughout the Buick world as the 'trailer hitch GS455', this super clean Stage 1 features a solid body that conveys a sense of integrity perfectly befitting its parent division. Consistently providing its various owners with a great combination of rock-solid reliability and full-throttle comfort, that body has never been separated from its chassis. Fittingly, a smooth coat of original Diplomat Blue paint reflects an original vinyl roof. And presently, this Buick's desirability as something that's as rare as it is unique is both genuine and fitting. ENGINE While the exterior of this slick A-Body does an excellent job of upholding GM Design's world-class visual aesthetics, the engine compartment is where purists REALLY start to take notice. And for good reason too, because the 455 cubic inch Stage 1 V8 that's bolted between the car's rust-free fenders is the kind of killer powerhouse that makes people either put up or shut up. Turn the key and a big Quadrajet carburetor mixes air from a black, dual-snorkel cleaner with fuel that's supplied by carefully bent stainless, and shoves it into a correct, cast iron intake. That intake feeds cast iron heads, which ride between a familiar points distributor and high quality Taylor plug wires. Spent gases are jetted through correct, cast iron manifolds, which ride under traditional chrome valve covers. And a correct, heavy-duty radiator, which circulates water around an old school Frigidaire AC compressor via pliable GM hoses and reproduction tower clamps, provides ample cooling. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION Under this Buick, it's just as the factory planned, with solid, undercoated floors living a functional, unglamorous existence. An original Muncie 4-speed hangs a matching partial VIN between a correct 3925661 casting number and Muncie (P) M21 (B) assembled on March (C) 18th (18), 1970 (0) build stamp. That stalwart gearbox jerks a correct 10-bolt axle, which is finished with a correct posi-traction differential and correct, 3.42 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a familiar Rallye Ride Control Suspension, which pairs factory power steering with better springs, better shocks, a thicker front sway bar, a standard rear sway bar and boxed rear control arms. The car's optional power front disc and rear drum brakes are present and accounted for. And on the outside of those brakes, chrome Buick Rallyes twist G60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around red, white and blue center caps. INTERIOR Pop the sculpted doors and you'll find a correct code 188 Black interior that's still factory-fresh in virtually every way. Comfy seats and fade-free door panels continue the rich feeling of the car's royal Diplomat Blue exterior. In front of those seats, an original dash frames a correct AM/FM radio, controls for the aforementioned air conditioning and clear telemetry that includes a correct tachometer. At the base of that dash, correct consolettes highlight classy Buick ornamentation and a familiar Hurst shifter. And the driver keeps tabs on the road through a retro Buick steering wheel. This national award-winning GS is an iconic classic that wraps one of the hottest powertrains ever produced in rare options and a great color combination.
