The Gran Sport fitted with the massive 455-cubic inch V8 powerplant was first introduced for the 1970 model year. Unfortunately, the muscle car was overshadowed by its competitors, such as the Ford Mustang Boss 302, the Chevy Chevelle, or the Oldsmobile 442 that were all on the market the same year.

Nonetheless, the Buick Gran Sport 455 deserves an equal amount of attention. The base model was rated at 350 horsepower, a stage one trim bumped the power by an additional 10 horsepower. Today, the Gran Sport is available at a fraction of the cost of its popular competitors.
