From Hemmings review.
ENGINES
The GS 455 was actually an option to the base GS during the 1971-'72 model years. As the badge hints, the 455 signified the selection of sales code A9. With its 4.31 x 3.90 bore and stroke, five main bearings, hydraulic lifters and Rochester four-barrel carburetor, it was the same basic big-block that had been introduced in time for the 1970 model year.
DIFFERENTIAL
The final power transfer point was a corporate 10-bolt open differential containing an 8.50-inch ring gear and semi-floating axles. As had been the case for some time, engine/transmission selection determined the final drive ratio. For example, a base 455/automatic combo resulted in a 3.08:1 gear, with 3.42:1 optional. A base 455/four-speed came with the same 3.42:1 gear.
TRANSMISSIONS
Both the A9 and A1 engines mandated that GS buyers had a choice between the Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 automatic transmission and the floor-shifted four-speed manual. That automatic could have been shifted via column-mounted lever, or through a full-length center console. It contained three forward speeds; the ratios were 2.48, 1.48 and 1.00:1, with a reverse ratio of 2.08:1.
