Buick Nailhead V-8 engine rebuild time-lapse: from rusty to roaring | Redline Rebuilds - S3E3

There were many trials and tribulations along the way with our 401 Buick Nailhead engine rebuild, but it's finally DONE! The engine is together and running like a dream. And now, for your enjoyment, we present our latest Redline Rebuild time-lapse video. We pulled this iconic V-8 from a 1965 Buick Wildcat that had been sitting in a field in Northern Michigan for the better part of the last 3 decades. While the car was completely unsalvageable, we thought we'd take a crack at resurrecting the engine. Unfortunately, the block and heads were junk, but we managed to use a few parts off the original engine to bring a trusty American V-8 back to life. Enjoy!
