I am no GS expert but have been playing around with them a little. I cant tell a value but I can tell you that the 68-9 cars seem to be worth a lot less than the 70-72 cars, and even the 70-72s are valued less than a comparable chevelle (of course except something special like a GSX). If you like the car buy it, but no way is it an investment car IMO, especially with a chevy engine.

I think they're great! My older brother had a 68 GS400. The CLASSY muscle car, leather interior was elegant, performance outstanding. I think a GS with a Chevy 454 would be a great combo to play with. Maybe not the best investment, but for sheer fun it's a big winner.

I posted a '70 GS 350 for sale here about 6 months ago and I only got one response. I ended up selling it for $2500. Cool car, mint green with a black interior in excellent condition. I think they all came with functional dual cold air hood intakes.

A friend used to do tuneups at his house to support his racing habit. He called me up one day and said come over and se what I am working on. It was a 70 Stage one car. The thing was as fancy as a Cad but was also really fast for a luxury car actually guite inpressive.
I have a soft spot for 70 Buick GS's..I recently sold a 70 GS 455/4 speed convertible,1 of 126 built.Real nice ride.I just misssed out on a 70 GS455 Stage 1 car last night..strong #3,all matching #'s..sold for 10K! Funny thing is,if it was a matching # LS6 car in the condtion the Buick was in,it would have cost about 25-30K..funny how that is.

There's a guy locally who has a 71 GS 400 (or it may be a 72) that is nice and straight, and would be a good resto candidate. But he's planning to yank the Buick engine, install a 454, and he said he's going to tub it and install a cage and turn it into a bracket racer.
It's a shame. That going to be a real waste of very nice car.
