    no power steering?

    welp, sorry i doubted you Tom. that's **** sure close enough to a 455 in weight that it raises serious questions about why Buick weakened the BBB design so much.

    put alum heads + alum intake + headers + mini starter and you'll be well under 600lbs with a forged rotating assembly.

    Bob,
    Wicked car! Looks like AFB's on there, did you manage to find an original dual quad setup or are you running some grouping of nailhead carbs? Having a bit of trouble tuning mine, was curious what your tune was looking like as your engine is similar to mine otherwise.

    The carbs are correct '64, '65 dual carbs. The kickdown linkage is fabricated. So far they run good. I do have a difficult time getting it down to the 550 idle suggested in the specs. It just like a bit more.

    I will try and get some pictures of the car

    There is one at the bottom of the page, without the engine and seats here: https://www.teambuick.com/forums/sho...iviera-Project

    Wicked! If originals weren't going for a small fortune I'd go that route, but having fun making two standard AFB's play nice! I agree, the kickdown linkage is absurd, I'll be making my own as well. Since my car doesn't have a switch pitch it's pretty non-critical.

    Beautiful car, great color on it!
