New to the site and just wanted to introduce myself. Bought a 1978 Buick Park Ave awhile back and just getting to a point that I can get started with my project. The plan is mild resto mod, I’d like to keep the original Buick 350 in it but we’ll see. If not maybe an ls swap. Looking for a modest 400hp max. Overdrive transmission, posi out back. Pro touring stance. 18-20” wheels. I’m excited to get started, hopefully have it all done sometime next year. I’m a paint and body man by trade so anything on the exterior I can handle no problem and I’m good enough with a wrench to do a lot of the mechanicals myself too. If anyone knows where one of these is sitting that I could source so parts from please let me know…btw I know the Park Ave is technically a C body but everything is pretty much interchangeable with B bodies so hopefully you don’t mind me being here lol.
