I would like to see about a 2 hour interview with the owner and car! It kinda has a wild 60s/70s show car thing about it I kinda like. If it was mine I would paint it with a thick root beer metal flake :mwink:
I loved the video up until the guy sat on the hood and fender, I wanted really badly to punch him in the throat. That is a MAJOR pet peeve of mine. I caught a niece of mine sitting on my wifes 65 Skylark years ago. I told her if you want to use the wrong thing for a chair go use the stove, I and directed her towards the stove, go sit on the stove, let me turn the fire on, you wouldn't sit on that why sit on a cars hood! GRRRRRRRRR

They say it used a TH400 tranny. I will bet a crisp $10 bill that it was in fact a ST400, the Buick version of the TH400. I say that because the ST400 was used by Rolls Royce at that time! The nailhead Buick ST400 has a very short bell housing as the torque converter sits inside the block on the Nailhead not hanging off the back like a Chevy. So the transmission is a perfect candidate for an adapter to other engines. It has been used in the Aston Martin as well and I believe even Ferrari used the Buick ST400.
