Looking mean and sounding positively evil, this killer green Buick rolled off GM’s Flint, Michigan assembly line during the fifth week of November, 1970 and began a life of bare-knuckle pavement domination. Recently, the car benefitted from a thorough frame-up restoration during which every aspect of its body was massaged and aligned to showroom-fresh standards. Once those sculpted panels were rock-solid and fully functional, a correct coat of GM code 42 Willowmist Green was sealed under a thick clearcoat shell and buffed to a vivid, glossy shine. And today, this Buick sits as a rare and unique classic that draw stares, looks like a million bucks from any angle, and is exactly the kind of no-nonsense muscle car you never get tired of showing off! The original 455 cubic inch Stage 1 V8 that’s bolted between this car’s freshly detailed fenders is the kind of powerhouse that makes people either put up or shut up. Oh, and did I mention the big red engine carries a correct 1231738 casting number behind a matching partial VIN stamp? You’ll recall that I used the word “unique” to describe this GS in my opening comments. Well, it doesn’t get much more unique, in a virtual sea of automatic Buicks, than this car’s modern Tremec TKO600 5-speed. That smooth transmission sends power from a shielded 11 inch clutch to a 10 bolt Posi-traction rear end that’s equipped with easy-driving highway gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a familiar double A-arm front and four link rear suspension that’s equipped with a factory power steering system, an upgraded steering box, heavy duty sway bars and quality Edelbrock shocks. And power flows to the pavement via fresh chrome Rally wheels which spin 215/70R15 Toyo Extensa A/S whitewalls around tri-shield center caps. In summary, this 1971 Buick is a phenomenal car that, from the ground up, likely couldn’t be duplicated for anywhere near our asking price.
