The 1970 Buick GS 455 is the ultimate dream muscle car for many of us. It perfectly blends the worlds of luxury and performance. In fact, this was the first year for the upgrade to the big 455 motor upgrade, and this one still carries its numbers-matching unit! So it's a special day when you find an exceptionally well-preserved/restored example that has all the right features.
A Buick in Harvest Gold just seems to represent the 1970s perfectly. And the reason why you find it so attractive today is because the factory-correct color was treated to a proper respray later in life so that it can retain a nice luster today. It sets the tone right for this car. It likes to be vintage, and so the investments made were mostly about making it look impressively stock. And the reason why they know what this should be is that this comes with the factory buildsheet. Clean body panels, extra bright chrome bumpers, and an excellent-looking white vinyl top are pure upper-class panache. But the premium appearance is only half of the reason why you really want this Buick so badly. You also love the aggressive touches like the functional hood scoops, Rallye wheels, dual exhaust tips, and red striping on the rocker panels that let everyone know this Buick is no doctor's house call machine.
The white interior goes great with the vinyl top and the touch of pearlescent is the right kind of flair you want on a well-done classic. So with its very clean and complete presentation, you'll want to roll down all the windows on this hardtop so more people can get a good look inside. And just like the exterior this one loves to be a true classic. So you'll notice the little things, like the Buick insignia in the rubber floor mats and how the courtesy lights still greet you when the door opens. In fact, the only modern piece you may notice is the AM/FM/cassette stereo that upgrades your driving music. This has all the right space and comfort to take family and friends along for the ride, and there are even provisions for factory air conditioning to keep them all comfortable (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) While this is luxurious, you'll love the performance pieces like Buick's X2 Rallye steering wheel, factory tilt column, a center console, and iconic horseshoe shifter.
You'll love lifting the hood and showing off the red block and bold GS 455 callout in front of the correct air element and gasket that connects this to the fresh air hood. But more than just vintage style, this is a true powerhouse. You have the numbers-matching 455 cubic-inch V8 topped with a four-barrel carburetor. There has been a solid investment in the powerhouse during the car's restoration, and so it continues to fire up eagerly and make a terrific tone from the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. It also has a confident feeling on the road thanks to newer bushings, power steering, power brakes, and a TH400 three-speed transmission.
The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, and original sales literature. This is the premium muscle car presented in exceptional condition. So if you love a true classic of distinction, call today!
