Best Answer

I believe that the Casting Number for ALL 1970-1972 Buick 455, Stage-1 Engines is #1112016. I believe that The Casting Number for all 1969 Buick 430, Stage-1 Engines is #1111962. I have an Original REPLACEMENT Distributor, for my Original 1970 Buick 455, Stage-1 Convertible.....the Casting Number on it is #1112016..., also with a DATE-CODE for 1972. I can check for the exact Date Code / Translation on it and relay that to you after I get home....Each Date-Code will of course be different according to the MONTH and YEAR it was Casted at the foundry. 02/10/08 I am NOT an expert, but believe this info, from my previous research to be accurate. The best person to find out detailed info from about ANY Buick GS is: Duane Heckman of He is a Walking Encyclopedia when it comes to Buicks.....He is the Leading Concours Judge at the Buick Nationals Every Year..... I will try to post the Date Codes for Distributors HERE, soon as I can. Semper Fi, Jim E-mail Address:

Yes you can...the 400 is the same engine as the 455...all you need are 455 frame mounts and motor mounts if you car had a small block V8 (340)...if it had a 400, a 455 bolts in perfectly since it is the same as a 455 externally!!! Year One, Inc. and TA Performance has whatever parts you may need.
