Hello All

New to the forum. Recently bought a 1973 Buick Gran Sport that I am planning to restore. The car is skylark black with white buckets and a 350 4bbl/th350. The car is pretty much original and rust free and in need of some TLC in the upholstery department and in need of a engine rebuild. I plan to restore it along with some updated safety related stuff (wiring, seat belts). More to follow!

Nice stealthy look in black!  You got the floor console with horseshoe shifter in it...and, sport steering wheel?  

Oh...and, welcome from MN!

The motor was previously disassembled outside the car. Now time to pull the block and have everything inspected by the machine shop and come up with a rebuild planHello from SoCal 3c0add10

Welcome form Michigan - we have no idea what a rust free car is!

Looks like a great project, good friend of mine has a '71 - he eats, sleeps and everything else Buick.

After having the local machine shop go over the motor, the conclusion was that it had been around the block one too many times to be a good foundation for a rebuild. Thankfully we found a 350 from a local Buick guy and got that dropped in
