Very excited to present this amazing car that comes out of a Buick enthusiast collection. We have a 1 of 801 Buick GS Stage 1 cars produced in 1971. The original owner had possession of this car until 1990. Has owner history including a very detailed maintenance log from the original owner. The engine is numbers matching as is the carb, heads and distributor. A mountain of paperwork and receipts from the engine build to bodywork.

There is no doubt that Buick was GM's division for Luxurious muscle cars and they did not disappoint with the GS line. And even though the 1970 and 1971 were the beginning of the end for the muscle cars, the 455 Stage I cars did not disappoint offering a conservative based 350 HP and 460 ft. lbs of torque. In fact, in the 1980's a magazine article pronounced that the Stage 1 cars of this era were faster than any of the Hemi cars of the same time. This controversy prompted several tests by many auto related magazines and unfortunately remains a true mystery to this day.

Other than the stock original and hard-to-find interior that shows remarkable, this car has been completely restored including a full engine re-build and number verification. It has a couple very careful and tastefully completed modifications. The first is the installation of a Hurst/Tremec 5-speed transmission that operates flawlessly. And the only other modification is the Summit digital gauge cluster with volt-meter, water temp and oil pressure. The complete original and numbers matching automatic transmission is sold with the vehicle including the center console and torque converter if the new buyer wishes to install it.

Some of the other options and accessories is air-conditioning (blows cold), power windows and locks, power steering and brakes, a power drivers seat, rear defrost, am/fm radio and sport steering wheel with everything in good working operation.

This GS starts, runs and stops perfectly. The engine runs strong….real strong with no leaks or smoke. Transmission shifts smoothly with the 5th gear making it very nice for cruising the highway.

It was re-painted back to its original color of “lime mist” just a short time ago. This car is ready to be enjoyed and driven.
