The Age of Aquarius came to life for Buick fans in 1970. Taking a page from the noted space program, new GSX models, like this car, were an excellent way to introduce the new-for-1970 455 CI engine option. The GSX designation meant more than a simple horsepower piece, however, even with a laughably low 350 HP coupled to the Detroit’s then-highest ever 510 lb-ft torque rating. GSX buyers went into the dealership looking for the hot graphics, special emblems, hood scoops, deck wings and one of the most upscale American supercars of that era.
With a rotisserie restoration completed in 2007 by Then & Now Automotive Restoration in Marietta, Georgia, this exemplary Buick is documented with its original Protect-O-Plate. Sold new at George King and Sons Inc. in Algonquin, Illinois, this car has been seen in multiple national publication articles and is listed as No. 202 in GSX registry. It is one of 81 produced with its 455/350 HP engine and 4-speed, and one of only 19 such vehicles registered to date. It also happens to be car No. 19 of the 678 total GSX produced in 1970. With its matching-numbers 455 CI and Muncie close-ratio 4-speed transmission and 3.42 Positraction differential intact, it has just 31,767 believed-original miles on the clock. The correct carburetor, distributor, alternator and starter are on it, as well as power steering and brakes, factory gauges with a hood-mounted tachometer, and dual exhaust.
Painted in brilliant factory-correct Saturn Yellow with a black interior, inside it hosts bucket seats and a console, floor shift, the factory GSX-only sport steering wheel and the high-quality design, materials and fitment expected from a Buick vehicle offering. Riding on 15-inch chrome 5-spoke wheels and a set of Goodyear G60-15 Polyglas GT tires, there is nothing about this car that is subtle. This historically important model release had street creed from day one. Nope, it’s not your father’s Buick; it’s yours.
