Welcome to CO! That's a sweet looking ride, at any price. It looks really clean, I would say that was a steal at 4k. Congrats.

Well, that's different, finding a Buick engine in there. Tells me the car may have originally been a V6 car since those were also Buick engines.

A suitable Olds V8 will not be hard to find and build.

Is it silver or light green?

It was originally a 6 cylinder car. The color is original Meadow Green.

Looks like a very nice car. Is it from your area all its life or from a rust free climate. Be sure to store it away in the winter and drain the coolant, if it came from warm climate.

Yes a nice Oldsmobile will fit in there very nice and easy. 350, 400, 403, 425, 455, which ever Olds engine you heart desires. Don't go to the other side.

Welcome to CO

Congrats on your new toy. I bought a V6 out of a similar car years ago for a jeep. The buick 300 V8 was a common swap in those bygone days
