The motor was rebuilt years ago,,and is still dialed in correctly..The large 4 core Heavy Duty Radiator keeps everything COOL..The heavy Cast iron intake was long ago replaced with an old school Aluminum Edelbrock "B4B" port matched to the big valve heads((The heads have Expensive Adjustable Roller Rockers which require a special adapter to seat the Factory Original Chrome Plated Stage 1 valve covers)),,letting the 850 CFM Hi-Performance Edelbrock Quadrajet carb model #1910(Legal for IHRA Stock and Super Stock class racing, breathe nicely with the Factory Forced Dual Snorkel Air Induction ,,, The points distributor was replaced with an MSD ignition system,,The turbo 400 transmission with high stall converter sends the over 510 foot pounds of Torque to the Factory 3.64 Posi-Traction rear end with Heavy Duty axles..The heavy restrictive exhaust manifolds were replaced with Mickey Thompson Super Scavenger headers that flow thru a full huge 3 inch exhaust system,,including even the 3 inch tailpipes and a cross-over exhaust unit underneath the car,,,which really compliment the 490 lift camshaft..----The car sounds Amazing,,is TIGHT,,FAST,,and RELIABLE.....................Power-Steering,,Power-Disc-Brakes,,F41 Heavy Duty Suspension,,Factory Tach and Gauge car,,Bucket seats,,Full Length Floor console,,3-Spoke Rallye Sport-Steering Wheel,,Tinted Windshield,,Rear-Window Defroster,,15 inch Chrome Plated Buick mag wheels,,AND MORE-----74,000 original miles-----Not a show car,,but a real mean machine that can be driven in confidence with a HUGE SMILE on your face..1970 was the Peak Year for the Muscle Car Era..(The Pinnacle of Detroit's Power Prowess)..------."NOW WOULDN'T YOU REALLY RATHER HAVE A 1970 BUICK....

    I started a thread about this car couple months back it was on cars online could be the same seller he started at a 45K finally dropped it down to 30 K and then it was deleted off I thought it had sold at $28 500 it's probably the same owner the car was originally Sherwood green from the factory.

    I remember him telling me that the ad in cars online was expensive. I told him he needed more pictures and a better description of the car, I just contacted him to see if it was a factory black car.

    Yesterday I called the original ad from Pennsylvania I never got a callback could be a different owner from New York with a different PA plate. If it is a flipper they won't be making much money on it. Wilkes-Barre PA is a long way from Long Island New York.

    In PA, the purple plate shown in the ad I posted is a registrable “antique vehicle” plate. The blue plate shown in the current ad is a PA plate that is no longer registrable unless it matches the year of the car. In 1970, a PA plate is yellow and blue not like the one shown. Most likely a flipper that got the blue plate in the deal and threw it on for nostalgia.

    When I talk to him the first time he said it was matching numbers engine and trans plus the carburetor and distributor Talk is cheap though.

    I figured it wasn’t an original black car. Hs anyone on here ever actually laid eyes on it to see how good or bad it is? Also curious if it ever had a top on it.

    Picture of the cowl tag will tell the story. Funny no mention of color at all.
