1970 Buick Gs 455 in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Everyone has their favorite muscle car, but quite honestly, few could match the Buick GSs muscle. With a towering pounds of torque and great horsepower, it was arguably the fastest machine on the streets, yet it went about its business with a quiet dignity that has earned it millions of fans through the years. This dialed-in 1970 GS455 is a great example that has a tough look to match all of that brutal horsepower, and its been nicely restored to look exactly right. br / br / To answer your first question, yes, this is a real GS. Finished in Code 48 Sherwood Green, its one of the less common GS colors and truly emphasizes what a special car the Grand Sport really was. Dressed for success, the big Buick was upscale instead of a street brawler, and brought serious class to a segment that seemed to only care about horsepower. The restoration brought this one to a high driver-quality level, with a great gloss on the surface and straight, clean sheetmetal underneath and we love the way the dark green looks with a black vinyl top, which was a familiar sight on Buicks that year. Those unique GS grilles are superb, the red-accented rocker panel trim is bright, and the twin-snorkel hood adds to the racy vibe. Chrome bumpers were part of the Buick image, and they shine up beautifully, adding a bit of elegance to the otherwise high-performance coupe. The sucker looks fast just sitting / br / Buicks big advantage, aside from massive torque, was its luxury background. No longer did you have to suffer in discomfort to own the fastest car in town, and the attractive dark green bench seat interior invites you to drive. In truth, its low-key, which is perfect for a Buick, and once youre there, youll find nicely preserved factory gauges, handsome wood applique on the crack-free dash, and accurate components throughout the interior, including the door panels and headliner. Theres an AM/FM/Cassette radio thats period-correct and blends right in and as a Buick, factory A/C was part of the package, and the its been converted to take modern R134a refrigerant so its blowing nice and cold and is easy to service. Its very comfortable inside and there are hardly any imperfections to speak of, and its quite possible that no one has sat in the back seat in 40 years, so you know that this was always a nice car. The trunk is solid and clean with painted floor pans that leave problems no place to hide, a set of reproduction plaid mats, and a full-size spare to / br / The GSs claim to fame was the massive 455 cubic inch V8 under the hood, and although this isnt the cars numbers matching block (it decodes to a 72-75 455 V8), its every bit as potent and sparks to life with ease, ready to eat up some pavement. Unlike a lot of its peers, it hasnt been upgraded with aftermarket parts, and still carries its OEM-style intake manifold, carburetor, heads, and exhaust manifolds. Nicely detailed with Dante Red paint on the block and valve covers, a correct twin-snorkel air cleaner, finned valve covers, and accurate finishes throughout, it looks quite fresh and runs great. Its backed by a stout TH400 3-speed automatic transmission that manages the power without issue, and theres a newer Flowmaster dual exhaust system that provides the soundtrack and sounds fantastic. Theyre also a big rear sway bar to tighten up the handling a bit, and power steering and power brakes make driving this GS a very pleasant affair. Gorgeous Buick Road Wheels have been painted black and adorned with chrome and carry 215/70/15 white-letter BFGoodrich T/A radials that fill the fenders / br / Documented with an owners manual and maintenance records, this gorgeous, fast, and very nicely finished Sherwood Green GS 455 is what all muscle cars want to be when they grow up.
