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!
