1970 Buick Skylark Yellow Gran Sport GSX
Why This Car Is Special
We have a real-deal 1970 Buick Skylark Gran Sport GSX here at

the "Holy Grail" of Buick muscle cars!
To begin with, there were only 678 1970 Buick GSX produced of which
and 280 which were automatics.
So what makes a GSX a GSX? The GSX is basically a GS-455 with the
A9 option group. This includes a hood mount tachometer, power front
disc brakes, Rallye Ride Control suspension package, front and rear
spoilers, and heavy-duty cooling package. Inside, you get a Rallye
steering wheel with Rallye instrumentation, bucket seats, and a
custom interior trim package. All this plus a 3.64 axle ratio with
posi-traction differential and 7-inch wheels set you back $1,196
for the package.
This was one of the most luxurious muscle cars you could buy. Even
though it was a performance car, Buick didn't skimp on amenities
and creature comforts when creating this car.
The GSX came standard with a 455 cubic-inch V8 with 350 horsepower
and a whopping 510 lb.-ft. of torque and this is what is in our

The 1970 GSX was available in only two colors. 491 were produced in
Saturn Yellow and 187 were produced in Apollo White. Both colors
came with black body striping that flowed across the top of the
front fenders, doors, rear quarters, and rolled over the rear
Another standout feature of the GSX was the size of its wheels and
tires. Buick installed 7-inch wide Buick Rally wheels and now has
Mickey Thompson Sportsman raised white letter tires.
Our 1970 Buick Skylark Gran Sport GSX is finished in the factory
correct Saturn Yellow with black and red GSX stripes, factory ram
air hood scoops, hood tach, and the GSX rear spoiler.
The yellow paint is bright and has good body lines as well as
chrome and trim items, and the exhaust is great with the dual
exhaust system exiting out the rear.
