The only thing I can think of is yours had a 300, which was basically an aluminum block cast in iron and a bit bigger. But I have been a Buick nut for ever owned many of them as well as my brother and father and sister, we have all had a number of them from the 60's. I have never heard of a 401 (completely different motor than the 215-300-340) or any other Buick V8 in one of those cars so it was likely a 300, or I am totally wrong and that was the rare baby I have never heard of.

You know, it was a LaSabre. Getting old is the pitts!

Origional paint. One day I was cleaning the dash and was in a position where I could look down to the bottom edge of the speedo. It had the word police on it. Everything made sense then It was built with the Police package on it. I bought it from the origional owner and he had no clue. Big engine, big brakes, big rear end. The speedo on your mystery car wasn't available to the public.
