FOR SALE: 1970 Buick GS
If you\'re not a Buick fan, this 1970 GS 350 may very well make you a convert. I don\'t care who you are, you simply have to respect a car that keeps such a low profile on the street yet brings plenty of performance and includes luxury options like factory A/C. Refinished in original code 46 Seamist Green Iridescent, this Grand Sport is quite straight and the low-profile color helps keep it under the radar. This one has seen some use, but still looks fantastic with great lines and an unmistakable A-body profile that will never go out of style. Those two nostrils on the hood are fully functional, feeding the stout Buick 350 underneath, and the blacked-out front grille looks awesome in contrast. Buick kept enough chrome on the GS to remind you that they were all about luxury performance, and it is all in excellent shape. Correct red GS badges have been installed wherever appropriate. Adding a little bit of color to the otherwise monochromatic body are the GS rocker moldings which feature red stripes to match the GS badges. A correct black vinyl top adds to the luxury/performance image and shows none of the usual maladies. Inside, there\'s a code 178 black vinyl interior that has been as well restored as the body. The seats have fresh covers with factory-correct patterns and detailing, the carpets are recent with the correct nap, and new black floor mats are included. Door panels, the dash pad, and even the headliner were all replaced during the restoration and still look excellent with no signs of damage or fading. The Sonomatic AM radio remains in the dash, augmented by an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in its own pod underneath, indicating that the restorer respected the original stuff enough to leave it intact. The A/C offers an R134a upgrade and a fat leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in your hands. From behind the wheel, there isn\'t much to remind you that you\'re in something special, but it takes little more than a quick squeeze of the throttle to understand why the GS Buicks were both admired and feared on the street. The reason? 350 cubic inches of Buick under the hood. Buick engine bays are special, with red engines, chrome valve covers, and that unique dual-snorkel air cleaner that feeds the 4-barrel underneath. This one shows a lot of correct detailing, from the \'GS 350 decals on the air cleaner to the recent master cylinder and booster. The chassis is solid, although not detailed for show, and there\'s no evidence of structural damage. A TH350 3-speed automatic is ready, willing, and able, and thanks to a heavy-duty suspension, it hooks up better than its softly-sprung Skylark brothers. Twin Flowmasters give it a predatory growl, but with the Buick engine it has a sound all its own. And no hot-rod Buick is complete without a set of handsome Rallys, with these wearing 225/70/14 Uniroyal radials. If you\'re a Buick guy, this is one of the coolest cars of the muscle car era, and it has the credentials to make the most of its low-profile look. Better yet, it\'s available for a fraction of the price of its Chevy and Pontiac cousins. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
