Will It RUN AND DRIVE 600 Miles Home?1968 Buick LeSabre 400 FORGOTTEN For 26 YEARS!

22 Jan 2021
3 297 285 Shikime

My friends' parents bought this 1968 Buick LeSabre 400 Brand new in 1968. In fact, they even filled out the order sheet. When they unfortunately passed, the car just sat parked for 26 years. The 400 model has the high compression high performance 350 small block, and the turbo 400 transmission. This car is loaded with goodies, including an 8 track player! I take on the challenge of firing the old boy up again, and attempting to drive 600 miles back home!

  • I revived a '69 le sabre 350 4BBL a few years back. I LOVE BUICKS! I THOUGHT she was good when I got her as a CL special, cylinders 7 and 8 were gone, had to get sleeved. Just like you said, parts are so hard to come by and 4x as expensive as a sbc. Thermocoil choke element was $390!!! So I rebuilt everything I could myself. Put a mild cam in her, completely rebuilt and polished the heads, finally got her running, and threw her in an 86 Pontiac Grand Prix that originally had the 231 boat anchor. She was a runner. Then I sold it a few years later 😄. A video of the build is soon to come on my channel! I very much enjoy your content Derek! Keep'em coming!

  • I'm subbed to at least 10-15 car channels that I never watch because they are obnoxious, over produced, or underplay how a mechanic thinks about or approaches fixing cars. You've got a good relationship with the camera, and I like the the premise of finding and fixing affordable cars with good bones. I also like that you bring your kid and teach him the foundation of working on cars. I happened on this channel by chance, and in two hours I've watched a Buick LaSabre come to life, and bought a VGG hat. It's been a good morning.
