If I am correct (I could be wrong) that is an all aluminum 215ci Buick/GM engine (block and heads were/are aluminum). They came in 61 and 62 Buick Skylarks, Cutlass', etc... The only reason I know this is because my current project is a 1961 Skylark, I sold the engine and tranny. I saw that picture somewhere else before.

~Ha ha!

Hi guys...

My friend pointed me in the direction of this forum.

Photos of my living room seem to be appearing all over the net right now!
When I put that V8 coffee table on eBay, I guess it must have got into forums such as this as the auction page had something like 16,000 hits!

Camaroman, correct! - Buick 215 which became the very successful (at least in the UK) Rover v8 (3.5-4.9 liter), as used in all manner of cars such as Land Rover, Range Rover, P6 etc. They are now used loads in rods and customs because they are so light and plentiful, and resonably powerful. Oh yeah, they have the right number of cylinders too! The engine in the picture that has been posted (and is still in my living room) was from an '82 Range Rover.

I've made a few of them now (amongst other silly automotive nonsense). It was great not so long ago as people were literally throwing money at me to build them one!
They are ever so easy to make - strip an old block down (suggest Ally lump, as cast will be way heavy) - get it bead blasted and polish the flat faces. Bolt on the polished pistons with suckers attached to the top, and plonk a piece of glass over the top. Voila! Takes a weekend of messing about in the garage.

Have a look at my website for pictures of some other nonsense...

Thank you all for the positive comments





The crank and three pistons from the same engine:

Thanks for chiming in, good to know I wasn't wrong.

Those little engines are very popular still even here in the states. The following is smaller but they like them for MG's, Triumphs, and hot rods. It was news to me, I would have given mine away. Luckily I did a little research and found out it was worth a few bucks.

Those are some very neat creations you are making. Looks like fun!!
