For sale in our Chicago showroom is this absolutely incredible 1971 Buick GS. This classic GM still contains its original, numbers matching engine, but does have a 4-speed overdrive automatic transmission that was not installed by GM. The engine, originally a 455, now boasts an impressive 494 cubic-inches of raw Buick power which has been align bored and decked. The internals consist of a custom Moldex billet crankshaft, Oliver billet rods, billet main caps, ARP main and head studs, Diamond 10.5:1 pistons, and the entire rotating assembly has been balanced. On top of the “short-block” there is a cool set of TA aluminum cylinder heads which are filled with plenty of goodies as well. Some of the toys include Comp Cams hydraulic roller cam and lifters, chrome moly pushrods, T&D shaft mounted roller rockers, all topped by very attractive TA valve covers. While this I all very impressive, the kicker is, it’s fuel injected! Up top, the electronic fuel injection setup is controlled by a Big Stuff 3 ECM and utilized an Edelbrock intake that was modified for the EFI design. This engine runs like a dream, and is an absolute torque monster. The beautiful music produced by the motor is released from the exhaust ports through TA ceramic coated headers, and feeds into 3-inch Flowmaster mufflers and exhaust. The transmission, a heavy duty 200R4, delivers the power through an aluminum driveshaft with a forged yoke into a bulletproof 9-inch Moser rear differential housing with a posi 3.50:1 gear ratio and Moser HD axles.

The exterior is beautifully done in a silver base / clear coat paint job, with smooth black stripes and spoiler. To make sure the looks last a lifetime, the craftsmen went the extra mile with prep work and took everything down to bare metal prior to hitting the paint booth. The bumpers really shine since they have been re-chromed, and the new convertible top and weather stripping take it to the next level. Hopping in the driver’s seat truly is a treat that one would brag about for a long time to come. Turn the key and feel the rumble, then depress the gas pedal and I challenge you to try not to smile. The pilot can read everything that’s happening under the factory ram air hood through Autometer liquid filled gauges, as well as the factory hood mounted tachometer. Once she’s warmed up and ready to run, tilt the steering column to your likings, shift into drive and grip the custom carbon fiber Grant steering wheel. This recipe may sound like a racecar, but the amenities like the Vintage Air air conditioning system, power windows, power top, and Dynamat sound insulation prove that this is car is much more.

This uniquely built monster could satisfy even the toughest contenders. Options include: Air Conditioning, Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, AM/FM Radio, CD, Convertible Top – Auto, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Widow, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, Tilt/Telescopic Wheels, Vinyl Interior.
