It has a 1964 Buick 215ci aluminum V-8 in it. The all aluminum 215ci engine was only made in '62, '63, & '64. It had a newer Edelbrock 1405 carb on it that I wanted so I offered the guy 75 bucks for the carb, he said why don't you give me $100 and take the whole car, so I did....

Finally. The fenders, deck lid and other small stuff have been done for a while but I have been lazy about posting. We finished the doors and hood last Saturday, and will paint the inner panels and a few dash parts Black tomorrow.

It's amazing how different the paint looks outside...
