    Lesabre Small Block V8 301ci Complete

    Selling 1965 used Buick V8 matching motor and transmission. Bought it from guy who advertised it as Wildcat 401 Nailhead (clearly not true) with fewer than 40k miles (probably close to mileage). Cast iron 4-Barrel carburetor intake indicates possibly the larger 340 ci engine but I did not...

    So after nearly rolling my car off the highway...

    Car is surprisingly solid. Crushed the bottom of the drivers side rear quarter panel. Shifted the bumper two inches up on the drivers side. Drivers side exhaust got bent over to the passengers side. None of it a big deal. Unfortunately, I straightened the backing plate, fixed the drum...

    Looking for a 300 block after my recent "big bang". My engine threw a rod.

    1985 Buick LeSabre LTD Collector's Edition sedan

    Hi all! I registered to share and discuss the car in the title. While not everyone's idea of a dream vehicle, I love these, and have owned a few over the years. I swear, most modern cars are built for midgets! Even being 6'2", the big-body GM RWD's feel roomy. 1985 was their last production...

    1989 lesabre transmission trouble

    My 89 limited 2-door has always shifted hard into overdrive. Lately, however, after about an hour of driving, it feels as if the transmission is slipping between about 40 and 55 mph. It doesn't do this when it's cold, only when it's been driven for about an hour or so. Can anyone tell me if...
