    1966 Wildcat 2 door Sport Coupe

    Guess Alberta taught you there is no fake winter there! It is good to hear you are on the mend. The Subaru is what those guys call a hybrid. That is a 2.5 STI short block with 2.0 heads. I got it from a Subaru Tech that added a larger turbo and a front mount air to air intercooler. He added a...

    1964 300 2 barrel to 4

    Your 64 300 has aluminum heads and intake. The 65 300 has iron heads and intake. The intake and intake runners in the heads are different sizes between the years (64 is smaller). A 64 intake can be made to fit the 65 iron heads (although restrictive), but the 65 manifold is blocked by the...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    Looks great Bill! Happy New Year. I cant tell you how many hours were spent on the quarters on my 65, but the previous owner said he had a beer keg rolling around in there for quite some time. I can appreciate what you have done.

    Bill, are you thinking of painting this in the factory color when done or another color of your choice? You have certainly done enough work to make it whatever color you want as a reward!

    Forged 350 crankshaft

    I have read elsewhere that King and Moldex will make a forged crank for the Buick 350, but they wont be cheap starting at $2250

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    I have a Year One catalog from 2000. Even then, they said the 64 quilt headliner pattern used in some 64s was not available. They suggested the basketweave was the closest match to it?

    Almost forgot to mention to start by making sure the center of the headliner is centered in the car front and back as the first step.

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    I started going from the front to the back and got that where I wanted. I glued that taking a few few clips down at a time. Then I went side to side with the clips and got it where I liked it on both sides (working back and forth between sides). Then I glued that a few clips at it time making...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    It was basically contact cement spread on with a little round brush from the can, but it was called headliner glue. My wife borrowed a box or two of those clips from work (that were returned) - recycle and reuse! Glad to see Pat is recovering in real life as well as in the other thread!

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    It makes the job easier and, I think, nicer in the end to have the front and rear window out when doing the headliner. It is easy to stretch one way or another and pull it smoothe.

    Legendary Interiors is probably your go to for that Bill. They give you enough for the sail panels as well. I cheated and bought the visors already done.

    67 Skylark engine size

    I think you are right. We have a partial list of casting numbers for the small block Buick here: https://www.teambuick.com/reference/casting_numbers_300-340.php. I cant quite make out your intake casting number, but you may be able to confirm it is a 340 using the intake casting number. The...

    67 Skylark engine size

    If it has four bolt valve covers it is either a 300 or 340. If it has a four barrel carb it is most likely a 340 as there were no 4 barrel 300s in 67 - only 2 barrels. If the engine is not original, all bets are off! Six bolt valve covers would be a Buick 350 from 68 on. They are almost a...
