Toplesss Tuesdayz: 1970 Buick GS Stage 1 (3-speed manual)

Posted by Jess Stoeckeler on

As far as we know, there was only one Buick Gran Sport Stage 1 convertible with the 3-speed manual transmission and a standard 3.64:1 Positraction axle ratio produced. We don’t know how that’s happened since regular options only included the Muncie M-22 4-speed manual transmission or the Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic one. In any case, the GS Stage 1 was already one of the rarest muscle car convertibles by itself. It featured the 360-horsepower and 510 feet-pound of torque 455ci big-block V8. That also makes it one of the most powerful classic muscle cars of all time. Those were definitely the most exciting years for the muscle car scene.
