The 1973 Buick GS Stage 1 four-speed is a rare, forgotten muscle machine

Buick’s public relations department was asleep at the wheel in 1973. Although the brand’s Gran Sport Stage 1 was among the stoutest of the remaining midsize muscle cars offered that year, it was largely ignored by most of the major contemporary car magazines. Car and DriverRoad & TrackHot Rod, and others failed to publish road tests of the GS, which offered more cubic inches, horsepower and torque than almost anything else coming out of Motown.

A friend of mine had me stuff a 74 455 from an Electra 225 into his 1975 regal. It is a really nice car and my installation looked factory, lucky to have whole donor car. This was in 2004. It will smoke the tires at 35 mph

Nothing Muscular about 1973.

I could look at this cream-puff bubble-top all day. Wouldn't own one, though.

Looks like the precursor to my 1975 Pontiac Grand Am.

A friend of a friend in high school had one back in the early 80's. It was a 455 car and I believe it was a Stage I as well, Blue with gold lettering/side stripe. For some reason, he had it repainted by Earl Scheib, who painted over all the decals and stripes. It was just terrible.
