Barn find.

May end up expensive?
Also being marketed in the UK.

It's all done years ago, but needs restoring.
Is that a Buick 215? Where's the dizzy?
Manual trans.

Lovely car for someone, a change from the usual.

"Is that a Buick 215? Where's the dizzy?"

Buick 215 valve covers stand up straight rather than continuing the "V" profile. These valve covers look like small block Chevy, and on SBC distributors are mounted between air cleaner and firewall. (Small block Mopar also has distributor at the rear, but with taller valve covers...)

It's got Corvette valve covers. Because of the front engine breather, I'm going to guess a 327 or 283. I think I see a Quadrajet carburetor, so I'll go with 327.
