1970 Buick Gran Sport 455

Everyone has their favorite muscle car, ut quite honestly, ew could match the Buick GS's muscle. With a towering 510 pounds of torque, t was arguably the fastest machine on the streets. This stunning 1970 GS455 is a great example that has a tough look to match all of that brutal horsepower, nd it's been beautifully restored to look right. To answer your first question, es, his is a real GS. Finished in code 14 Silver Mist, t's one of the less common GS colors and truly emphasizes what a special car the Grand Sport really was. Dressed for success, he big Buick was upscale instead of a street brawler, nd brought serious class to a segment that seemed to only care about horsepower. The restoration brought this one to a very high level, ith a great gloss on the surface and straight, lean sheetmetal underneath. There are a few signs of use, ut for a car that can generate speed as easily as this one does, hey're surprisingly minor, nd we love the way the silver look without a vinyl top, hich was a familiar sight on Buicks that year. Those unique GS grilles are superb, he red-accented rocker panel trim is bright, nd the twin-snorkel hood adds to the racy vibe. Chrome bumpers were part of the Buick image, nd they shine up beautifully, dding a bit of elegance to the otherwise high-performance coupe. The sucker looks fast just sitting still.Buick's big advantage, side from massive torque, as its luxury background. No longer did you have to suffer in discomfort to own the fastest car in town, nd the attractive black bench seat interior invites you to drive. In truth, t's low-key, hich is perfect for a Buick, nd once you're there, ou'll find nicely refinished gauges, trio of auxiliary dials under the dash, nd accurate components throughout the interior, ncluding the door panels and headliner. There's an AM ratio that's period-correct and blends right in and as a Buick, actory A/C was part of the package, lthough this system needs to be serviced. Other luxury features include a tilt steering column, emote side mirror, nd it's quite possible that the back seat is original, o you know that this was always a nice car. The trunk is solid an clean with painted floor pans that leave problems no place to hide.The GS's claim to fame was the massive 455 cubic inch V8 under the hood. This one has been rebuilt to stock specs, o the most potent engine in 1970 is every bit as much fun to drive today. Unlike a lot of its peers, t hasn't been upgraded with aftermarket parts, nd still carries its OEM intake manifold, arburetor, eads, nd exhaust manifolds. Nicely detailed with Dante Red paint on the valve covers, correct twin-snorkel air cleaner, nd accurate finishes throughout, t looks quite fresh and runs great. It's backed by a stout TH400 3-speed automatic transmission that has also been rebuilt at some point, nd there's a fresh Magnaflow exhaust that sounds fantastic. They've also added a rear sway bar to tighten up the handling a bit and the brakes have been recently serviced with a new master cylinder and power booster. Gorgeous Buick Road Wheels have been painted black and carry 225/70/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials that fill the fenders perfectly.Gorgeous, ast, nd very nicely finished, his icy silver GS is what all muscle cars want to be when they grow up.
