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.

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.

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 GS | Concours d'Lemons: HCCTV

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cweedua
In 1970 Buick introduced the GSX as their answer to Pontiac's GTO Judge and
Chevrolet's Chevelle SS454. Modestly rated at 360hp and 510 ft./lb. of
torque, the GSX Stage 1 was described as a more luxurious HEMI 'Cuda
because of its lighter weight and amazing power. In 2002, this particular
example won a Senior Award from the Buick Club of America and the 'A' Body
of The Year award at the Buick Nationals. In 2010 it racked up Concours
Gold awards at both the Buick Performance Group Nationals and GS Nationals.
Literally every nut and bolt on this GSX Stage 1 has been replaced to
factory standards and showroom shine to ensure that it gets the most points
possible from any discerning judge. Every weld and gap is perfect making
for excellent panel fit and functionality giving this Buick a menacing, yet
luxurious appearance. Chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add an
element of class and luxury. The combination of black, white and chrome is
complemented by small splashes of color like the rear GSX decals and red
pin stripping around the GSX side stripe. Red, white and blue Buick
tri-shield center caps are bolted to GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch
Rallye wheels. Those stylish Rallye wheels are wrapped in reproduction
Super Wide Oval tires as if the car had just left the factory.
Buick's mighty 455 big block V8 was one of the first motors to utilize thin
wall casting and as a result is lighter than a comparable Chevrolet 454.
Take one look under the hood at the numbers matching 455 and you'll see why
this GSX is a gold winning car. Everything from the battery to the decals
has been restored to showroom quality and nothing less than best of show.
This particular GSX was up fitted from the factory with the Stage 1
performance package which added a hotter cam, bigger valves, low
restriction Exhaust and revised jets
in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. The result is an unpublished rating
of 425hp and a ride that you'll never forget.
This GSX also features Buick's Rallye Ride Control Package which includes a
rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm ride springs
and rear lower control arm assemblies. Connecting that massive power with
this enhanced driving system is a factory option, numbers matching
close-ratio 4-speed transmission. Equipped in only 188 Buick GSX's for
1970, that transmission sends the torque to the ground via 3.64 gears in a
numbers matching high performance Buick Posi-Traction rear axle. At the
front corners, factory power assisted discs and at the rear corners,
factory power assisted drums bring everything to a stop. The guys at Then
and Now topped off the restoration with a new fuel tank, new fuel lines,
new brake lines, new body mounts and a fresh GM black undercoating.
This sale includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing the
car to be GSX number 622 of 678 produced for 1970. Also included are
Concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance Group
Nationals as well as the Buick Club of America gold medal, affixed to the
grille of the car, signifying senior award status. The car features a
numbers matching 455 V8, a numbers matching 4 speed close ratio
transmission and a numbers matching 3.64 high performance rear end. It is
one of 178 Apollo White cars produced and one of 188 cars equipped with the
Even after 40 years the interior of the GSX still feels luxurious and
comfortable. The gauge cluster consists of a clock and brightwork set
against wood grain texture. The seats and door panels feature upgraded
vinyl, adding to the fresh feeling created by the nicer GSX dash.
This gorgeous GSX has the hardware to satisfy your wants and the class to
fulfill your needs. It has enough power under its hood, luxury behind its
doors and trophies under its belt to make any car guy happy. The sale
includes concours gold plaques from the GS Nationals and Buick Performance
Group Nationals and documentation from the GSX Historic Society. Call today

1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.

Here at RK Motors, we've been rolling out some world class Buick GSXs
lately. Our latest addition to the arsenal is a frame-off restored Saturn
Yellow 1970 GSX Stage 1 which has won so many awards recently that you
might need an extra trailer to haul them around.
Nothing was left untouched as this GSX was given a professional, frame-off
rotisserie restoration. Every weld and gap is exceptional, giving this bold
and luxurious Buick the ability to win major points from any judge in any
organization. Step back and admire the consistency of the yellow paint
across every panel. Close the door to hear the confident thud that gave
Buick a reputation for rock solid cars. Take a moment to follow the GSX
side stripe as it flows to the back of the car and lines up perfectly with
the centered GSX spoiler decal.
The first thing a judge will notice when he walks up to this car is a sense
of craftsmanship in the details. The pristine red and white GSX decals and
red pin stripping combine with the Saturn Yellow and black paint to really
set the car off. New chrome bumpers, door handles and window trim add the
substance and class expected from a Buick. The factory hood mounted
tachometer completes the look and acts as a nice conversation piece.
Original equipment red, white and blue Buick tri-shield center caps adorn
Buick GSX specific chrome trimmed 15 inch Rallye wheels. Completing the
look are reproduction Super Wide Oval tires just like the tires the car
left the factory with.
Under the hood of this GSX resides a concours restored correct date coded
455 with the Stage 1 performance option. When up-fitted from the factory
with the Stage 1 performance package, the 455 benefitted from a hotter cam,
bigger valves, low restriction Exhaust
and revised jets in the Rochester Quadra-Jet carburetor. Buick claimed that
the car made 360 horsepower, but testing
showed that it actually produced around 425hp.
This GSX has no difficulty putting the power to the ground as it comes
equipped with the optional Rallye Ride Control Package. Rallye Ride Control
features a rear stabilizer bar, firmer front and rear shocks, rear firm
ride springs and rear lower control arm assemblies. Factory power assisted
front disc and rear drum brakes and variable ratio power steering keep
everything under control. Backing that 455 is a numbers matching, concours
restored GM TH400 3 Speed automatic. That hydramatic transmission sends
power to the rear wheels through a numbers matching Posi-Traction rear end
with 3.42 gears and a Buick high performance axle.
On the inside high quality vinyl seats and door panels are highlighted by
perfect red GS emblems and chrome trim. Optional custom front and rear
seatbelts with custom front shoulder belts and a full length console add to
the already impressive design. A factory optioned Rallye steering wheel
serves as the focal point and looks right at home in front of the upgraded
GSX dash. Featured in that dash is a factory option chrome trimmed gauge
and clock package and the correct Sonomatic AM radio.
The sell includes a CD of pictures documenting the frame-off concours
rotisserie restoration of the car at Then and Now Automotive. It also
includes documentation from the GSX Historic Society showing this car to be
GSX number 543 of 678 produced for 1970 and one of only 213 cars to include
the TH400 transmission. Included documentation from the Sloan Registry
features percentages of vehicles registered by state and year as well as
options sheet break downs, factory correspondence and marketing material.
Awards include a 2010 concours gold plaque from the GS Nationals, a 2010
concours gold plaque from the Buick Performance Group Nationals and a Best
of Show plaque from South East Rods and Customs.
There are nice cars and there are rare and significant cars which define an
era. The GSX is one of those cars and one of the most significant Buicks
ever produced. Fully documented and a national show winner; this GSX is the
right example for any serious Buick collector. Call, click or visit
