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.

Yup,
I always liked the GS, but im partial to the 70 style. I think a GS would look good sitting next to my chevelle.

As for the value, it really matters on the condition of the engine/tranny. Their obviously not original, unless you meant to say 455.

A good GS with no engine/tranny, minimal rust and body dammage can be had for 2k sometimes. Good Interiors are also a plus $. Add the value of the engine/tranny to that, and you got an estimate.

There's a buick gs big block "Stage one" at the garage where i came often, they bring him there for a rebuilt, they blow-up the engine
The cam was completely gone.
There's a completly restorated '70 gs 350 driving in my area and i like that one very much.

didn't the GS make a stage 1 model? I think it was pulling numbers like 12.5 out of the factiry in the 1/4…

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.

Those '70 GS 455 Stage 1's are damn fast. Huge amounts of torque. Mid to low 13's off the showroom floor. One of the few cars in '70 that could challenge an LS-6 Chevelle.

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.
