215 Buick

Never have seen one used, they are also known as the Rover V8.

What does it weigh?

Stock horsepower ranged from the standard Buick Special's 155 H.P. / 210 lbs torque to the Oldsmobile Jetfire's turbocharged and fuel injected 215 H.P. / 300 lbs torque. Of course, the most desirable aluminum V8's are the higher performance versions with increased compression ratios and four barrel carburetors.
Built one back in the mid 80’s. On a baby gore, ran a 66 x 34 prop equal to about 135 hp. It was the olds. Engine with the rodchester 4 gc carb. And low end cam, they use these engines on planes inverted with a dry sump.
