Buick has built some pretty brutal street hardware, ranging from this 1971 GS Stage 1 tribute to its younger siblings, the turbocharged Grand Nationals. And as most street racers know (or eventually learn the hard way), it's usually a mistake to tangle with a big, bad, black Buick like this. This car show's a restorer's touch in the bodywork, because it's definitely show quality. Black has a magical quality to it, but only if it's right, and this one is most certainly right. The sheetmetal was worked until it was straight, then worked a few more times just to be sure. Gaps are quite good, although you'll have to take my word for it, since the black paint hides them so well. A proper GS hood, complete with scoops to force-feed the big 455 underneath, as well as a fully functional hood tach, was fitted and restored with the rest of the car. A black vinyl top adds an air of formality, which the Buick carries with ease, and all the chrome was completely restored to factory standards or better. And although it looks plenty menacing all by itself, a batch of correct reproduction GS Stage 1 badges were fitted as an additional warning. Buick's upscale image was part of the package, even with the brutal GS Stage 1, and the luxurious black bucket seat interior never lets you forget that you're in a top-of-the-line piece. Beautifully restored, it offers correct materials and patterns, a beautifully restored woodgrained center console, and options that you couldn't get on some of Buick's sister brands, like A/C. Speaking of center consoles, this one also features that awesome horseshoe shifter, as well as a relatively rare AM/FM radio with a separate 8-track player under the dash. You'll also note a set of Auto Meter auxiliary gauges mounted in the usual location, augmented by the aforementioned hood tach. The trunk is also neatly finished with a correct mat and full-sized spare with its own cover. Buick's Stage 1 big block made more twist than even the legendary LS6-a whopping 510 pounds of it. The engine in this '71 is a correctly date-coded Stage 1 block, so it's more than just a garden-variety 455 with some speed parts thrown at it. It runs just as if the factory built it, and the detailing is quite good. Of course there's that massive air cleaner assembly that draws cool air from the hood nostrils, and reproduction decals have been used throughout. The block wears correct Dante Red paint, although you can't really see it from above with all the equipment. It's backed by a TH400 and 12-bolt rear with 3.73 gears on a Posi. It's clean and rust-free underneath, with the only real deviations from stock being the exhaust system that sounds awesome and those beautiful Torque Thrusts with Buick spinners and 225/70/15 BFG radials. A definite force to be reckoned with, this GS Stage 1 delivers everything its looks promise. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
