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!

Its really in good shape for what it is so how in the world did it end up sitting in a junkyard, people back then usually didn't just junk perfectly good cars. And what happened to driving it home the first time when ur son was working with u or was it the plan to let it set for 3 months and come back?

Another old girl brought back to life. Great! I hope you go back to get the "53 Buick behind this one running, or maybe some of the other precious old iron there. What a great collection they have! Another adventure done. Thanks for takin' us along. Sounds like it had dropped a cylinder when you pulled into your driveway. Head gasket overheating problem?

68 Buick LeSabre was my first car. It was a white 2-door model (my bright white sports car :-). I got it when I was 16 in 1976. This video brought back some great memories! Thanks.

Find the fan shroud and reinstall it. That should help draw more air through the radiator and keep it cooler.

You should always disconnect the vacuum hose going to the distributor before you adjust your base timing. Even a small amount of vacuum will give you an incorrect setting.

Awesome video, absolutely loved the restoration and getting it running again. personally in my experience with old cars being parked for such a long time., I usually drain the water/coolant, and depending on the corrosive condition of the radiator, I would either throw in some Mercedes citric acid flush which will absolutely take out all of the rust out of the radiator/engine block/every other hidden place, and or I would replace the water with Evans waterless coolant, then you could literally run the radiator cap off and it will never over boil. But regardless there is something satisfying watching it start and running again.

My grandfather bought a Buick, from day one it had poor oil pressure, light flicker at idle, he took it back to the stealership, they said it was fine, he didn't put many miles on it before he died, my uncle got it for a daily driver, turns out there wasn't enough oil pressure, caught fire and was put down.

I love your video and no doubt about it you are an amazing auto technician ! Also I love the fact that your saving our heritage the world needs more fine historic auto lovers like you ! the only thing I dont understand was with all the R and R you did to insure a successful and time you spent before the trip home , why not have flushed the gas tank a few times ? but what can I say I most likely would have done the same thing I guess sometimes its more easy to judge something you see after the fact and I most likely would have messed up by not replacing the water pump! ps your son will remember this time with his father for ever ! God bless you!

Hopefully the youngster learns what things are really called as compared to dad's goofing around names... otherwise the son's future visits to the auto parts stores are going to be hilarious. 😉 Back in the '70s I had a '72 Buick Electra 225 Custom Limited with a 455. The Speed Alert kept me out of trouble as 75+ didn't seem any different than 45... the car just floated along. The down side of that car was that in my youth I drove it like a sports car. It ate tires... new to bald in about 6K... and it got 4-4.5 MPG. 😉
