Lot #445 - The Legendary GS Stage 1 was one of the fastest Muscle Cars ever built. This Stage 1 has 23,700 original miles, matching numbers and the original owner owned it for 39 years. Kept in a garage since the day it was first purchased on November 14, 1969 at Dirk Waltz Buick in Midland, Michigan for $4,311.47. Not only is this a low mileage Stage 1 but it is also one with a lot of options. Only 1,189 Stage 1's were built with the special Turbo 400 and air conditioning. However less than a hundred had the power options loaded up on this coupe. One look at the detail on the wheels, chrome, interior and even the engine block leaves you amazed at its preservation. These items have not been painted up to look this good, they are original and as the saying goes, they are only original once. This car has the original Protect-O-Plate that documents the Stage 1 codes, copy of original title, original registrations back to 1971 and original owner's manual with folder that docments delivery information. It also has the original sale product bulletin and picture sheet that explains the Stage 1 package, the original warranty brochure and original starting instruction tag. Sloan Museum documentation is also included. Everything including all the power options function as they should. This Stage 1 not only looks like new but it performs like the legend it is. 24 factory options, all function properly. Not only matching numbers, but all major components are original.
