It wouldnt fit with my air cleaner and hood. $200.00 plus shipping. Also a V6 or V8 manual bellhousing. I used this exact model behind...

    Spares from my 1964 Buick Special DeLuxe 2 door post

    Got the BADLASS almost fully back together (2nd year on the street now!) and finally finished up with the paint last winter. The car is a 1964 Buick Special DeLuxe two door post. Had a V6 with a 3 on the tree. I have a "Pretty darn nice" set of tail lights with nice ruby red lenses and "minor...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    Wowee!! two months again. Been a heck of a lousy summer, but its almost done. The wheels are indeed Chevy Rally's, but thats what Buick used in '64 and 65. I do plan on getting some repop Buick centers, then bnp one will be the wiser. The fresh motor (465"!) runs super. The only complaint is...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    I cant believe its been a month since I was over here... I was led astray by the race wars going on across the hall LOL... Probably put 3-400 miles on it this summer. Runs flawless and gets nothing but compliments! Ive driven this girl way more than the '72 XGS this year, but now its 90F outside...

    revised engine hard to turn over

    Stupid first step... squirt some oil in the cylinders; HELP? The only other two issues would be piston rings with an inadequate end gap, or a bearing thats too tight. If the engine was out, I'd recommend just loosening the rod bearings enough to roll it over. If it frees up the bearings were...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    So the 400 was a step above the 220 to cut the glaze. That CC is tuff stuff. 220, 400 then finally 600 all by hand with a sanding sponge wrapped with the 600. My hands havent been that clean in 30 years! For kicks, I ordered another quart of clear. The whole job so far used 1/2 the gallon can...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    I started out trying to get down to the basecoat, by back scraping with a razor blade and some sanding. It was going slow, but OK, until I blew some air to dust it off and the air caught a little divot in a corner. That lifted the clear right off the base coat. Unbelievable. I grabbed a roll of...

    BADLASS IS WELL UNDERWAY

    Just an update... Got the color on and it took 2/3 of a gallon, i.e. 3 quarts ish. Got nice deep even coverage. Then came the clear. Made a mess out of that part, so its back to class for a chapter on remedial painting. Yikes! Bill
