Engine re-build kit

Postby 58Jesse » Sun Jun 05, 2011 3:04 am

Can anyone tell me of a U.K based company where I can buy an engine re-build kit for a 58' ? I have found a company on ebay selling full engine rebuild kits, but they are in the states, the shipping is very high, and I dread to think what I'd have to pay on duty when it arrives here.

There are a lot of '58 Buicks in Sweden and on the Continent. Would customs and shipping be cheaper if you buy within the EU? You might search there.

I live in Denmark have two 1958 buick Super.

Just go ahead and buy the kit on e-bay, buying a kit anywhere else in Europe will cost you more.
yes there is a lot of 1958 Buick in sweden. but the parts are not cheap there.
I bought my kit on e-bay and save a lot of money and Denmark have a lot higher taxe and custom then the UK.
