1970 Buick Skylark GS in Gold - Hemmings Muscle Machines
• Opening Doors & Hood
Buick was the irrefutable king of torque during the muscle car era, and one of the best examples was the Buick GS Stage 1. Touting a newly developed 455 ci engine that boasted a staggering 510 lb-ft of torque at 2,800rpm and 360hp, it was in a league of its own. Unlike its brightly painted and speed-striped cousins, the Buick GS Stage 1 was a subdued and refined looking vehicle that just so happened to have a reputation for knocking the socks off its flashy counterparts with its amazing V8.
This 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 was a labor of love for Carl Rychlik, who purchased the old rattle trap at a Buick swap meet in 1995. After over 4000 hours of weekends and late nights, Rychlik was able to restore this rare car to better than-new condition by 2003. Hemmings Muscle Machines magazine paid tribute to this car by voting it 2006 Muscle Machine of the Year!
