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:

Which motor has the most horsepower a Pontiac 455 or Buick 455?

The Pontiac 455 came in 3 versions. Base, High Output, and Super Duty. The base 1970-71 engine produced 200 hp and 455 lb/ft torque. The Super Duty 1970-71 engine had 335 hp and 480 lb/ft torque. Power was reduced after 1971. The Buick 455 came in 2 versions. The 1970 Base engine had 350 hp and 510 lb/ft torque. The Stage 1 engine had 360 hp and 510 lb/ft torque. So as you can see the Buick was the more powerful engine by far.
