1970 BUICK SKYLARK GS 455 4-SPEED
GM was launching horse power bombs in all directions trying desperately to lead the pack…. Doctor Olds had been pumping hard on the 455 cubic inches available in the 442….Chevrolet launched their explosive 454 motor where it would do the most damage…. available in the midsize Chevelle and the Corvette and the El Camino wow what a line up !!!!! Buick wanted a piece of the pie that Chevrolet Pontiac and Oldsmobile were devouring…. and they were bound and determined to take it…..
The midsize offered by Buick was the sleek lined well equipped Skylark Gran Sport available with a 455 cu inch motor . A stage 1 and 2 were available…….
The base car was rated at 360 horsepower…. the stage 1 package was available by order from the factory and stage 2 was a dealer installed package of race car parts that is extremely rare and most of those stage 2 cars were campaigned in the NHRA ….if you find one buy it!!!!!!
This car decodes correctly by the Sloan /Longway Museum …… color and equipment are correct and this car can be described as a survivor in exceptional condition when considering its age…… this car is 46 years old in October 2016…….. I think it is almost spectacular….. fire red with white factory vinyl top and pearl white interior, 4-speed, console , p/steering , p/brakes , am/fm with rear speakers , white walls g78-14 , positraction diff , rally ride control package available on GS 455 only , factory custom seat belt package -shoulder belts , tinted w/shield , convenience group trunk and mirror map light, instrument group inc.tachometer and last but not least the rally steering wheel……. I believe this car to be a great investment……. priced at market…….
