Hello Everyone at V8 Buick,
A kind car enthusiast on MuscleCarClub.com suggested I come here to ask 'the experts' my questions regarding the Buick/Rover V8.
Firstly I will introduce myself. I live in Northern Ireland with my wife and 2 kids. Three years ago I decided the time was right to move away from motorbikes and 2 seater cars to a classic 4 seater family car that we could all enjoy. A car that also had character, style and pace. So I went out and bought a tatty but strong '68 Rover P5B Saloon. But the Coupe was always the more desirable car due to it's lower, sleek roof line. So the following month I bought a '70 Coupe and now were all happy.
But boys being boys I wanted to take a good car and transform it into a great car so have taken the Coupe of the road for restoration that will start next January. At present I drive a robust 1994 Mini 1275. It's not fast on the freeway (very loud at 80!) but is uncatchable on twisty back roads!
The reason why I am here is I am trying to find out if in the US there are any performance parts for the Buick derived Rover V8 215 (3528cc) small block. The engine was developed by Buick around '64 and Rover bought the design around '68. Rover introduced it in '67 in their cars.
If anyone can help I will very much appreciate it.
