Hello, I have a 1962 Buick Skylark which is all original, I was torn to just restore it to original or rod it out. I think from what I have heard about the dual-pass transmission I would have to change to a newer style so that kills the original restore; because I want to drive it....a lot. I do not know a lot about the 215 except the history of course;.., with the british buying it from GM. Is the motor worth all the trouble and expense to build? I have heard that a small block chev is the same dimensions as the 215. Has anyone made a swap on the engine and trans? can everybody give me input on problems with doghouse (transmission), stering, exaust clearance......., I am at an impass of which way to go with this and I do not want to rip it up to bad to make stuff fit. Thanks for any and all input!
