This Abused Buick GS Became a Cornerstone for Me
This is my 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 455, TH400, non AC and with 3.64 Posi. Having never followed the pack, I wanted something different, and until this car I had never even seen a real GS let alone a Stage 1.
I purchased this Buick from an impound yard after it had been abandoned on the highway. The purchase price of the car was $375. It also included the cost of towing and storage.
It was the year 1994. The car was in hideous condition. Imagine how bad it was that the engine had exploded from obvious abuse.
Of course, I did some modifications to it. It had to have 2 cylinders sleeved and the heads where cracked. The vehicle should have been a parts car. Finding parts back then without the internet was difficult. I even found a OEM 70 grill from a dealer back East for $75.00 plus freight. It has been a labor of love for many many years just to get it back on the road.
