Details on 1970 GS 455

I am the 2nd owner, very clean, all numbers matching 1970 Buick GS 455. Have owned for over 15 years. Solid #2, car is very clean, straight and rust free. Paint is in very good condition throughout and the drive train has been rebuilt. This car could be driven anywhere, we drove to the Buick 100th in Flint, cool air conditioning the entire way. This car has also attended many GSCA nationals over the years. So if you have seen a Hugger orange GS (My wife calls it the pumpkin!!!), it might have been mine!

This car is a very early build 1970, meaning it was built and delivered in 1969 to a dealer in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (the inspection sheet even listed it as a 1969, see images). All the correct early build pieces are intact; plastic radiator shroud, New NOS clear overflow cover, Pointed Dash Lenses, etc.
