    1967 Big Buick One day at a time.

    Here's the Buick i've been working on for my buddies wife. Swapped v6 for 1972 455, and gave it a nice makeover, and for those that read my post on Edelbrock intake gasket issues the Felpro steel valley pan gasket fixed the intake leak, lesson learned.

    This is how clean this car was after pulling and pressure washing the frame. Car only has 18,054 original miles on body.

    Here's some random pics from the build.

    Radiator support after blasting and painting and check out the clean door panel. I stripped carvto bare metal too.

    Car was done with daily driver in mind, so i dindt go crazy on perfectly flat finish, left some orange peel and factory body creases.

    That’s a slick looking car. Good job! They’re a great design, it just takes a few tricks (additions and deletions mainly) to set it off. (Kinda like the ‘94-96 Impala SS).
