For Sale: 1970 Buick GSX in Effingham, Illinois


Vehicle Description

1970 Buick GSX "The Velvet Hammer" This is the epitome of high power, high class muscle car mania. The Buick division had an ear full of comments about Pontiac GTO Judges and Ram Air GTO, Chevelle 454 W-30's and W-25's. Although their 455 Gran Sport was just as fast, they didn't have the "Glitzy" Big Engine, Tire Burning advertised hotrod that the competition had. Someone in the Buick division said "Enough is enough, Let's show them what Buick is capable of building.(Afterall, we built tanks in the 2nd World War that all the tankers dreamed of) A Super Muscle Car should not be a problem for us. Enter: 1970 Buick GSX Available in white or yellow colors only. The style was distinctive. The 455 engines, especially the stage 1 models, terrorized the other manufacturers super cars on the street or strip. Super star driver Glenn Sox once said, "Not only did I thump the competition at the dragstrip with my GSX, I did it with the A/C on and the windows up." I guess that kind of explains the "Velvet Hammer" connotation. Here is the car. It's untouched and will need light restoration of paint and engine compartment. It's never been wrecked, never been apart, never tore down, nothing! We have every stitch of paperwork on this car from the build sheet to it's last oil change. Looking for the survivor, looking for �the beast of buick'? Well, look no further. She's not cheap, but not over-priced either. She'll be for sale for a month at this price, but after that it goes to the restoration shop and the price will go up. The engine is not the original engine. Apparently a few months after the car was sold, the engine developed issues and the dealership where it was purchased replaced the engine, so it is an original 1970 GSX engine, just the numbers don't match because of this.
