Differential (3.70 Gear Ratio) Power Brakes Seabiscuit (May 23,
1933 - May 17, 1947) was a champion Thoroughbred racehorse in the
United States. A small horse, Seabiscuit became an unlikely
champion and a sumbol of hope to many Americans during the Great
Depression. Those who knew him loved him simply as "The Biscuit."
Seabiscuit was foaled in Lexington, Kentucky, a grandson of Man o'
War. Seabiscuit grew up on Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky.
Seabiscuit was a very small horse. Seabiscuit did not at all
resemble anything in the way of his fast or powerful counterparts.
The original owners sold Seabiscuit to Buick automobile
entrepreneur Charles S. Howard. He made his fortune as an
automobile dealer and became a prominent thoroughbred racehorse
owner. Howard has been dubbed the most successful Buick dealer of
all time. The thoroughbred experts reasoned Seabiscuit was too
small to race. But the Biscuit did not care; he ran anyway.
Seabiscuit had a desire for running and winning. When he ran all
Biscuit's family could feel that pleasure. The GSX Biscuit Edition
started life much like that of Seabiscuit with numerous
similarities. The undersized weak 350 Skylark, under 200HP,
resembled Seabiscuit's modest beginnings. GSX abbreviates Gran
Sport Experimental which is so appropriate for this car. Inspired
with the history and image of Seabiscuit the horse, I conceived the
idea to build the all original one family hand me down little 350
Skylark into a winning 350 GS Experimental with power and race that
exceeded Buick's optional original 455 engine of the Skylark
family. The Biscuit Edition 350 "horse" power exceeds the factory
455/360HP by nearly 80 horsepower at an uncommon 439.2hp/ 435.8tq.
Seabiscuit, the horse, inspired so many of the unfortunate with
modest beginnings. It is hoped this one of a kind "Biscuit" edition
of GSX will inspire, remind, or make known the Seabiscuit story or
how the little guy sometimes wins when so inspired to do so even
against all odds. I am so reminded of the Seabiscuit history every
time someone remarks; "the little 350 is too small to run with the
455 big brother." I bear in mind a Biscuit finishing moment, a
Charles Howard smile & experience that "Biscuit Pleasure." If there
