    78 Buick 1.jpg 78 Buick 1.jpg 78 buick 8.jpg 78 buick.jpg I have an unusual build I am doing. It is a 1978 Buick 4 door with the 231 v-6. I am putting a new frame under it and a Buick 455, 200-4r and 3.89 9 inch rear.

    Catching up today. I separated the body from the frame today. Actually easier than I thought. This week should get the new 9 inch rear, box in the frame, get my rebuilt Qjet back with 2004r throttle blade shaft installed and start assembly.

    Almost a shame to take such a nice car a part, but I love what you are doing! The car is going to be awesome. I would keep stockish wheels on it.
