    Update on the GS 350 & LiL Bit- Paul has gotten most of the dents in the roof out and the rear trunk panel. Starting to look good again.:3gears:

    We're in the middle of a frame off resto of my 1969 Fireglow Orange Stage 1. Is there any record of how many Stage 1's there where in Fireglow?

    Currently there is not a break down showing how many of the Fireglow GS400 cars had the Stage 1 option.

    We all know the 1969 was one of the cars that suffered damage during the snow storm of Feb 2010. 350 & LiL Bit is on it way to being restored again :beers2:

    My 350 LiL bit has been completed and was able to take it to the Mill's Mansion gathering of old cars, before storing it for the winter. GS.jpg GS1.jpg

    Isn't this car the same car that is discussed here?

    http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.p...-and-after-shots-69-Stage1&highlight=fireglow

    which was the same car on ebay here?

    http://www.v8buick.com/showthread.p...bly-non-numbers-69-Stage-1&highlight=fireglow

    And had a service replacement engine? I had it personally checked out and it did NOT have the #'s matching block. Did the new owner some how find it? Or has it been restamped? Can you post a few pictures of the stamping?

    It is the same car. A customer of ours bought it in '09 and we did the work back then. As far as the numbers on the block there aren't any. Machining of the block way back in the 80s took care of any numbers. Date casting code on the block, if I recall, was for the correct time. All the other stage 1 stuff was there (minus the rear). Proof that it is the original block? There isn't any. But there is enough evidence to show that it is a true Orange Stage 1 4 speed. I wish I could talk him into selling it to me though.:grin: I love the car. Such a nice driver and I love the orange.

    So when you said it was a numbers matching 4 speed stage 1, what you meant was that it had a numbers matching 4 speed transmission? That is somewhat of a liberal stretch to say its a numbers matching stage 1, since the transmission doesn't indicate it is a stage, and John didn't have the carb or distributor for the motor IIRC, or any paperwork, unless that has been found since. What other "evidence" do you have of it being a Stage 1?
