This is a original 1971 Buick GSX 455 car. Yes this is a original, NOT A CLONE, 1 of only 124 ever made in 71 that includes 350, 455 and 455 stage 1 cars all together. This car is registered in the GSX registry. This car was not known to exist until it was discovered a little while ago. There are 3 known so far out of all 1971 GXS’s to have a paint code of 62 which is Bittersweet Mist. The others Bittersweet Mist GSX’s are restored one is only a 350 engine and 350 auto tranny car. The other is a stage 1 455 car. So this is the only 455 engine 1971 GSX made in the color Bittersweet Mist to date. I have talked to the original owner and have a document that has been signed by him and notorized stating that this is a true 1971 GSX, which he bought on march 12, 1971. I have the original protecto plate This car is a 4owner car, and can be traced to every owner and all the owners are still alive. This was bought brand new at Key Buick & Opel in Jacksonville, Florida on 3/12/71. It stayed in Florida until mid 1979, then it went to the last of the 3 owners in Alabama where it stayed until about a month ago 2/1/08. Now it resides with me here in Pa. This was always a southern car and is about 98% rust free. It has just a little around the back rear window and a pin hole in the rear seat pan and where the battery box is, that was because of a leaky battery but thats it. I have alot of picture of the doors, trunk, floors, fenders, rad support, frame, etc and all of that is 100% solid

    ok, i have a chance to buy a 1971 buick gsx for $6,500 , its got 120,000 miles on it and is in pretty good condition (it only needs new brakes) im wondering if i should buy it, this would be my first car and my mode of transportation, not just going to leave it in the garage, where i live we get snow for about 4 months a year

    Very rare car indeed. Looks to me that car was Cinnamon Mist. That car is in better shape than when I first bought my 1970 GS Stage 1,so there is a lot of potential for this car. Good luck with your GSX.

    I love GS’s I had a 71 stage 1 with the Kenny Bell engine very fast car. But my wife drove it to work as a daily driver. We live in a state that gets lots of snow so I sold it to get her a grocery getter/daily driver with more drivability in snow.Wish I had it back that was 30 years ago. LoL
