This 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 455 Restomod is so freshly restored that the odometer hasn't even reached the second digit place. And they really did this muscle machine right with awesome paint, a custom A/C interior, and seriously upgraded suspension. Plus, the numbers-matching 455ci V8 has bene given a performance rebuild, including fuel injection.
The Emerald Green Metallic seems to represents this car perfectly. After all, they loved green in the 1970s, but this is a modern and sleek application worthy of this fresh restomod. And it's far more than just the paint that signals this is an upgraded machine. The form-fitting bumpers have a pewter finish so that they coordinate with the modern Boyd Coddington wheels. And there are more great upgraded details, including the carbon fiber headlight bezels. It creates a total package of instant distinction. But as much as this is a custom build, it also doesn't lose all the best sporty features of the GS. The functional hood scoops, hood pins, and that rear wing lets everyone know this Buick is no doctor's house call machine.
The idea behind a Buick GS is to mix muscle with Buick's reputation for luxury, and that was taken to the next level during the restoration. It's a fresh leather interior with upgraded front bucket seat that offer terrific modern bolstering. There are nice vintage elements, like the sports steering wheel and center console with horseshoe shifter. But what will really impress are all the modern upgrades. This has a push-button start, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, an AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And you get to choose how it's all presented thanks to the multi-color lighting under the dash. There's even a Phantom rear view camera! And of course, on a muscle car like this there are upgraded performance pieces, like the stainless pedals and full Shark gauge package, including large speedo and tach.
This wouldn't be a true 455 GS without the correct monster V8 in a glowing Dante red block. In fact, this is the numbers-matching motor for the car. But the really impressive parts are all the upgrades during restoration. Bright components, tidy wires, and those cast Buick valve covers make this one look awesome. This 455 cubic-inch V8 has been upgraded to a FiTech fuel injection system that adds both performance and consistency. The mighty V8 inhales deeply with the proper ram air hood, and it exhales with added power and authority as heat-wrapped long tube headers feed the rumbling dual exhaust. And this big power motor connects to a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you see more great investments, like the upgraded front suspension with extra thick sway bar and a tubular trailing arm rear suspension by Massive Speed Systems. Plus, there are more worthwhile driving upgrades like power steering, grippy modern tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
