    Well guys, I screwed up. I believe it’s actually a 1977 Buick Electra Limited with the 403.

    My stepdad loved Buicks and had all kinds of them.

    You did go from a three hole Buick to a four hole so that's good.

    I had to google to even know what that meant. Can confirm. It’s a 4 hole.

    I turned one of those into a round-a-round dirt track car. That worn out 403 was a screamin' demon until it threw a rod.

    This would also be my suggestion.


    Good luck with the project!

    I consider things like this a 'hobby'. Never even think about getting my money back! But, if you think of it as a hobby, for the price of 1 to 4 Glocks, you can have a hobby that you can drive everyday --- and be stylin' doing it!


    Best of luck with your decision!

    Buddy of mine back in Victoria family had a wsgon6 with a 403 he would flip the air cleaner over when he got to take it out on the weekend. My uncle had a olds 98 with the 403 in northern Albert when I went up there to work construction in 19881 for the summer in college I had learned that trick so when he let me take it out on the weekend it would be impressive for a huge 4door smogger but then again first time I met him he hat a 4 speed 396 Nova his wife would race she was 100 lbs soaking wet it was funny riding with her when she said hold on

    Well it got new carpet /seats and paint job in the 2000's it can't be all that bad can it?
    My 1995 corolla still looks almost new inside and has 338,000 miles on it.
    Those older cars are easy and cheap to keep running.

    What all does it really need?
