Just figured I would give you guys some content! 1965 Buick Gran Sport. 401 Nailhead. Sitting in a 20' trailer right now waiting to be put in a real nice garage so I can get the project going!! That is, once I find my OH property
It is the original engine. 38,xxx miles. It was repainted by my wifes dad...but its not perfect He tore it apart to paint it and sent it back in pieces...and missing pieces He had it for years, even from before I met my wife.
I got it and tried starting it...starter froze after a couple cranks. Unfortunately the engine pretty much has to come out to replace the starter because i know the exhaust manifold bolts are going to snap which has to be removed to get to the starter. It will give me a chance to clean the engine and fix the rear main seal leak. Also put on some long tube headers and a cam
It needs quite a bit of tlc. Good from far, but far from good!
Im just looking to make a decent backroad racer! I dont want it perfect, I just want it to run and sound like a raped ape. The interior is rough and thats putting it nicely. A couple racing seats and the interior is done!! Nuttin fancy!
