This is my first time posting, although I have been an avid fan for months. I am dreaming of dropping a Rover V8 in my '70 mgbgt, but want to find one cheap. My question is: What vehicles have Rover

Why??? There is some justification for the mGB, as the engine compartment is big enough, and the car has a longer wheelbase as well as a bit more weight. This one strikes me as a nearly impossible s

There's one really easy answer: Triumph TR8. Not a lot around, but they have the 3.5l version. Mines for sale, but you have to buy the car surrounding it so it won't be very cost effective. Another

In the US (I'm assuming thats where you are located) Land Rover D90 and D110, Range Rover, Land Rover Discovery and Morgan +8. You don't want to buy one to donate an engine. You will need to modify y

Move to Oz, we have heaps of them here. You can even buy the factory MGB V8s, if you have enough money. I have two of the factory cars and an ex US spec rubbernose into which 1986 fuel injected Rang

Since no one else has answered the Buick part of this question, I'll tell what little I know on the subject. Some model (or maybe more) of '62 (and possibly '63) Buicks got the all-aluminum V8. Year

While you're scouring the boneyards for the old Buick 215, don't overlook any Oldsmobiles from the same period (somewhere around '62-65). Same basic engine with different exhaust and intake manifolds

62-65 Pontiac Tempest's and Oldmobile F-85's had the engines as well. My buddy in high school had a 62 F-85. He rebuilt the engine and 4 speed automatic but never but it back in. A few years ago he

The Olds was the F-85. There are a couple of these (Buick, Olds) at Bob's Wrecking in Milan, OH with engines and automatic trannies. A mixed bag--one is almost complete, another is missing manifolds

Re: which Buicks had the AL V8. As others have mentioned, Buicks and Olds, the Olds had different breathing gear. The other thing I have to add, is you guys aren't going far enough back. 1961 Buick S
