Of all of GM’s brands, the muscle cars from Buick probably get the least attention, so we are devoting the cover section of our July 2017 issue to Buick’s hottest models.
On the cover is a 1970 GSX that was pretty badly abused before it began a multiyear restoration. You won’t believe the “before” shots of what is now a gorgeous Saturn Yellow four-speed.
Another story features an “executive hot rod” 1965 GS loaded with options and powered by Buick’s famous 401-inch nailhead V-8. It is a numbers-matching car with an all-original—and white!—interior.
We have a story about a Buick “hoarder” and his massive collection of 1966 GS models.
A buildup of Buick’s hot 350 small-block (not to be confused with Chevy’s) is one of our tech stories. This story includes a dyno test of the engine with stock exhaust manifolds and headers. As you might imagine, the headers really wake it up.
Buicks aren’t all you’ll find in our July issue. Our correspondents traveled to the prestigious Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance for the special display of Camaros in honor of the Chevy ponycar’s 50th anniversary. We also have a story about an immaculate—and unrestored—1965 Satellite with the 426-inch Street Wedge engine. And Jerry Heasley’s Rare Find this month is a Hemi Belvedere with just 800 miles on the odometer, put on there, as the saying goes, a quarter-mile at a time.
For the do-it-yourselfers, we have carburetor tuning tips and tech focused on the Holley 1850, 4150, and 4160 four-barrels.
All this and more can be found in the July 2017 issue of Muscle Car Review, on sale June 9.
