Buick Grand Sport 1965-1970

The 1965 Buick Skylark power option is called the Grand Sport with the largest engine in the GM arsenal allowed for intermediate-sized cars. The engine size allowed at the time was 400 cubic inches, but the Grand Sport actually had a 401-cubic-inch (6.57L) V8, which produced 325 hp (242 kW) and had the moniker “nailhead.”  The option was a big hit in 1965 and ’66.

In 1967, the Grand Sport became a new model and along with it came the GS 340 and the GS California. All three are available in a two-door hard-top or coupe with upscale badging and trim. The 340-cubic-inch (5.57L) engine produced 260 hp (194 kW).  The power option was a newly designed 400-cubic-inch engine rated low at 340 hp, which kept insurance premiums down. The 1968 model came with a bit larger basic equipment 350-cubic-inch small-block  (5.7L).

The 1968 and ’69 models came in a convertible and in a hard-top style, as well. They came equipped, if you liked, with a Rochester four-barrel on the intake of the 400-cubic-inch with the still-underrated horsepower placed at 340. The compression ratio on the stock  engine was 10.25:1, which allowed it to run on regular or premium fuel.
The three-speed transmission, the basic option, complements the motor. You could have chosen the three-speed turbo Hydra-Matic 400 automatic transmission, possibly the finest transmission ever made, or a Hurst “dual-gate” shifter and linkage on the four-speed; both options mount in a console. The optional transmissions had duel exhaust pipes included in the package. The price was high compared to the competitions’ lesser cars, but in 1969 Buick stepped it up a notch with the “stage one option,” but this great car was not a big seller. The Grand Sport 350 outlasted the other two models, but the company shelved it in 1975 because of its high base price and replaced it with the Grand Sport 231.
The GS 455 in 1970 dropped the 400 in favor of a base 455-cubic-inch V8 putting out 350 hp (260 kW) at 2800 rpm. With the Stage 1 trim power option, the engine puts out 360 hp (260 kW) at the low 2800 rpm line.
All American engines were rated with a gross horsepower rating prior to the 1972 model year, but both engines are most likely rated lower than they actually could be due to insurance prices and existing regulations. With perfect timing and a carburetor tuned precisely, objective tests rated the 360 hp engine at 381.7 actual horsepower. This stage 1 option has a hot cam, higher compression, unique cylinder heads, with larger intake and exhaust valves. The automatic transmission was available with a crisper shift or a Muncie M-22 four speed. This car rated as faster than any of the Chrysler Hemis, and this has been an ongoing controversy over the years among muscle car buffs.
There was also a very rare stage 2 dealer option available, and there is little documentation available on this rare engine option, but it is a racing-equipped GS 455. Very few ever made it onto the streets.
The GSX Stage 1 was the high-performance offer starting in 1970, and it came with the 455 big-block as standard equipment. The only option offered is a four-barrel. The 1970 came in Saturn yellow and Apollo white, but in 1971, the car had six colors. The GSX came with a striking black lengthwise stripe outlined with red pinstriping over the rear spoiler.
There's a tachometer mounted on the hood with a black front spoiler, as well. The bucket seats, floor shifter, quick ratio steering, wide oval tires, front and rear sway bars were all included in the package. The options were standard or automatic transmissions.

1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda

Pegged at selling prices going up to $4Million, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda is undoubtedly the world's most expensive muscle car. With only 14 units ever made, prices are sure to shoot up when the demand for a Barracuda arises in the market. The small number of the 1970 Barracuda, however, is an ironic twist to the price it now enjoys. Back in the day, it had low market reception, leading to a very limited number of 1970 Barracudas released.

Itis the first model of the third generation of Barracudas that circulated from 1970 until 1974. It was also the first Barracuda to totally deviate from the Plymouth Valiant design where earlier models were based on. It comes in two variants - a two-door coupe and a two-door convertibles. The convertible ones were made exclusively at the Hamtramck plant in Detroit, Michigan. The 1970 Barracuda was also the first model to use the E-body designed by John E. Herlitz based on the modified Chrysler B platform. It offers a lower yet wider version of the existing platform.

The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda comes in three variants - the lower-priced base model or the BH, the sportscar model or the 'Cuda BS, and the luxurious 'Cuda Gran Coupe or the 'Cuda BP. It must be noted that the nickname 'Cuda was primarily used to pertain to the more luxurious, high-performance models of the 1970 Barracuda.

Powered by a 7.0-liter V8 Hemi engine, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda will develop up to 425 hp. It is equipped with solid disc front brakes and drums to the rear. The three-speed manual transmission of this muscle car can accelerate from 0 miles per hour (mph) to mph in 5.8 seconds. It also fares well on the quarter mile test with an average time of 14 seconds at a speed of 102 mph. This is actually very fast for a car made in 1970, with most of its counterparts falling way behind the speeds recorded for the 'Cuda.

Designed to be a fast car, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda made its racing debut at the All-American Racers' Trans-am series of the same year of its release. Drivers Swede Savage and Dan Gurney raced similar factory-sponsored units that earned them three pole positions in the league. Although neither car took home the championship, one of them finished second in the the competition.

Another four 1970 'Cudas found themselves racing for the Chrysler France team from 1970 to 1973. The team's then-director, Henri Chemin, piloted the first car before selling it off to J. F. Mas. The 1970 'Cuda raced two more years with Mas before it was set into retirement. Those two years won Mas and his 'Cuda one hill-climbing championship, three on-track ones, and four French Group 1 Class trophies.

Although the most expensive 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda in record sold for $4Million, most units easily sell for half that price despite the car's condition. This year, a 1970 'Cuda is being advertised at a going price of $3.2Million. With the number of muscle car fanatics fighting to own this particular unit, prices may rise up to the record $4Million or more.

Chevrolet Camaro 1970 Z28

The Camaro was all-new for 1970, and the Z28 is loaded with the also-new LT1 350. The LT1 350 had a higher horsepower rating than the big block, and the Z28's performance tuned suspension was one of the best you could get in '70!!
