1970 Buick GS Stage 1
One of my personal projects is a 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 that has been built for the street as well as the strip.
This is a Super Clean – Rust Free Car that came from Colorado and should be the nicest GS I’ve owned and restored when finished. For now I’ve cleaned up the engine bay and replaced the original Trans and Motor and installed a 1970 455 & Trans for the purpose of racing it.
The current motor is a 1970 455 that has Cast Iron Stage 1 Heads and a lot of port work otherwise the motor is factory stock. When completed this will be a basically stock appearing Stage 1 GS however our goal is to run 11 second E.T.s without any aftermarket engine parts. Pump Gas, No Fiberglass Parts, No Lexan Windows, No Aluminum Engine parts painted red. All Cast Iron parts and a QJ Carb! I’m on a 30 year mission to prove how fast these cars can be without all the aftermarket goodies found on most “Race Cars”.
Update: Best E.T. so far: 11.92 @ 110 MPH
We have also ran 11.92 on the brakes so with good air we feel we’re currently in the 11.70 area. Best 60 foot so far: 1.61 Factory Cast Iron Heads, Cast Iron Intake, Quadra Jet Carb and Cast Iron Exhaust Manifolds.
New Motor with Custom Cam going in 2021 as well as some Restoration updates.
11.90’s with factory parts……..for now! Stay tuned as we make this car nicer and faster!
