Vehicle Description

1970 Buick GS 455 Stage 1 Clone

HIGHLIGHTS: Get that $100,000 car look for less than half the price! This 1970 Buick Skylark GS455 Stage 1 clone is a fantastic car that turns heads everywhere it goes! Looks like a Stage 1 AND drives like one too! High-powered drop-top ready to cruise!
BODY OVERVIEW: Having received a quality restoration in the past, the body on this car is no less than stellar. It is very straight, and all those beautiful Buick-y body lines are super crisp!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The gorgeous red paint is accented by a wrap around black stripe, correct GS 455 Stage 1 badging and the correct functional ram air hood. The body lines are very good and the paint quality shows very well. It's not so clean that you aren't going to want to drive it, but still nice enough to win awards at your local shows.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Inside, you'll find that starting with a Skylark wasn't necessarily a bad thing because now we have power windows, power locks, tilt, A/C, power steering, power brakes and all kinds of high-option goodies. The interior shows little to no wear and with the power top down, it's a great place to enjoy the summer in.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Inside the engine bay you'll find a 455ci V8 with the correct GS 455 ram air filter with Stage 1 badging. The engine fires up very easily and has a great sound thanks to a new exhaust. The engine dates to 1972, with a 1238861 casting number and the correct 455 cast in the block. Highly detailed and very authentic, this Buick's engine bay is NICE!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The aggressive muscle car look combined with the topless capability.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Clones aren't for everyone, but this one is done right!
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? One exhaust tip could use adjustment, and the driver side rear window only operates when using the rear switch. Other than those minor quirks, this car is ready to go!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Originally leaving the factory as a 1970 Buick Skylark Custom, today it sits as a Stage 1 clone that you don't have to feel guilty about taking out on the open road. If you are hunting that drop top that packs a punch and looks killer doing it, then this is the car for you.
