1970 Buick Skylark Gs Tribute

1970 Buick Skylark Gs Tribute in Fort Worth Texas

 Vehicle Description
Its still shocking to many classic car enthusiasts that the big, bad muscle car Buicks dont get more respect from the collector car market. With more torque than anything this side of a Chevelle, and a unique combination of luxury and performance, cars like this beautifully restored 1970 Buick Skylark GS Tribute should be on every muscle car fans list of favorites. Featuring a powerful 454 big block V8, a quick-shifting 4-speed manual, and styling for days, this Gentlemans Hotrod may be the best bang-for-your-buck in our showroom right now, so you better read fast... br / br / The relatively unknown prowess of the Buick muscle car can work in your favor, however, because theres a ton of performance in this car for a fraction of the cost of a big block Chevelle or GTO. This car started out as a regular Skylark Custom, but during the restoration, it was upgraded with a built 454 thats an even bigger horsepower factory than anything found in a real-deal GS. Gray Metallic is the color (an upgrade over the factory Code 63 Desert Gold in our opinion), and it looks fantastic on the Buicks curves, perfectly fitting with the divisions performance mission. Bodywork was done not long ago, and everything fits together nicely, including the ram-air hood, which was part of the GS package. Its been driven a bit and theres some very minor evidence of use and blemishes (most of which is on the bottom portion of the car), but nobodys going to complain about how awesome this girl looks in person. Proper GS 455 badges were procured for the transformation, including the one on the blacked-out GS grille up front, and a newer black vinyl top was installed that adds a touch of sophistication to this Grown-Ups muscle car. Chrome is quite good throughout, especially the heavy-duty bumpers fore and aft, and the unique red-trimmed rocker panel trim adds a racy / br / The black vinyl interior is in good order, including correct seat covers on both the front split-bench and back bench seats, reasonably plush carpets that fully insulate the cabin, and nicely turned-out door panels with proper GS badge inserts. The original gauges are in good condition inside the factory bezel, and this one features an aftermarket tachometer that was installed to mind the revs, and despite the colors not matching, it fits in quite well. But those gauges only cover the basics, so a set of auxiliary units were neatly integrated into the A-pillar to keep the dash free of clutter. Woodgrain applique on the dash warms things up a bit inside, the original AM radio is still fitted (although an upgrade is due), and the dash pad is in great shape with no cracks or fading to report. And yes, this Skylark was indeed a factory A/C car, although all the hardware is gone now and would need to be sourced and reinstalled. The three-spoke steering wheel is in fine condition and includes a Buick horn ring, while the cue ball atop the chrome Hurst shifter is just a short reach away from the driver and adds an appropriately racy atmosphere, almost taunting you to get in and bang through the gears. Come on, just around the block to scare the neighbors real fast, it beckons. Out back, the trunk has plenty of space to accommodate almost any Power Tour gear youd ever need, and the painted sheetmetal presents well and offers another opportunity to showcase just how solid the bones of this Buick really / br / The original wheezy block that powered this Buick is long gone, replaced by a thumping 454 V8 thats been built right and has plenty of horsepower on tap. With a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Dart performance intake, a lopey cam, and aluminum heads its definitely got the hardware to take some pink slips, and it all feels like its barely getting broken in. The blocks been fully detailed and is topped with finned valve covers and a chrome Holley open-element air cleaner, and even the wiring for the HEI ignition is neatly organized and the inner fenders and firewall were nicely painted to really make the motor pop. The 4-speed manual transmission has a clutch on the firmer side, and once its mastered its a whole lot of fun, but most importantly it shrugs off the horsepower going through it with ease and spins a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end out back. Fat sway bars front and rear help this big body devour corners, while power steering and power front disc brakes make each drive a pleasure. Long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster exhaust system that sounds awesome and it sits on ever-handsome Weld Racing wheels with staggered 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials that finish off the killer / br / This is a handsome, fast, well-sorted muscle car from arguably the best year for performance and power. If youve been searching for a clean A-body with a big block, perhaps youve just been looking under the wrong banner. Take a long look at this GS Tribute and see if maybe youd prefer a little extra luxury with your muscle, then give us a call!br/br/
