View Full Version : Die-cast 71 Buick GS 455?
12-02-2010, 04:23 PM
I guess this is the right forum for this! My son would like a model of a 71 Buick 455 for Christmas. I'm thinking a die-cast model would be best because it would last beyond New Year's day. However, I've been looking for a die-cast 455 GS for a while and haven't been able to find one.
Does anyone know if such a thing exists? I'm willing to go used (even high-mileage) and do a restoration :-)

I know they made several GSXs, but I've never seen a GS455
You may have to 'settle' for a GSX and do some body work.
Keep your eye on ebay for the various colors...

Maybe contact Todd - he's a Buick guy.

Another option is to buy two, a 70 GS and a 71 GSX, then swap the front grill & rear bumper, and you will have a 71 GS and a 70 GSX. There are a bunch more 70 models to choose from compare to any other year.:TH::TU:

Hey, good idea Dan! I may be able to do that. There are several on eBay.
