AJ's Car of the Day: 1970 Buick GS 455 Stage 2

Car: Buick GSX 455 Stage 2


Year: 1970


What makes it special: The Stage 2 option that was originally a checklist item in 1968  was available in 1970. Checking that option box got you a boatload of performance goods in your Buick GS.


What made it famous: The 455 Stage 2 featured Mickey Thompson headers, an 850 cfm Holley Carburetor, 12.5:1 compression ratio forged pistons, a high performance cam, high-flow heads and a 4.78 geared rear end that reportedly were all dealer installed.


Why I would want one: These are among the rarest of the rare. It's rumored that only one to possibly three were ever known to exist.


Fun fact: The 1970 Buick GSX Stage 2 has been called Buick's most daring adventure into high performance.

    La seconda parte che Repliche orologi compone questo set è l'ultima creazione di HardNine Choppers, una Harley Davidson WLC Orologi replica 750cc dal 1943 che appartenevano all'esercito canadese. Quest'opera d'arte meccanica è stata completamente ristrutturata da Rolex Replica Danny Schneider per più di sei mesi. Il processo di personalizzazione comprende varie tappe del lavoro fatto a mano come rimodellamento dei parafanghi.
