Does anyone know a 1/24 or 1/25 kit with a Buick 215cu V8 engine in it?
Or maybe any aftermarket resin engine?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Canīt believe, there are so many US-Car builders around here and no one knows any answers. :(

Would pictures be helpful? Small engines do not seem to be very popular, maybe any similarities to bigger ones?

The engine was used in 1961-1963 Buick Special, Oldsmobile F85, Cutlass, and Jetfire, Pontiac Tempest and Lemans, and Rover Company that made cars and Land Rovers.

Thank you for your answer!
But do you know any model kits of these cars with engine detail?

It is better known as the Rover V8. I think the only game in town is South Eastern Finecast white metal kit.

It is in their full price list. I have never ordered from them as they seem to only take phone, fax or mail order and I am not inclined to call them up over it. It looks nice in other people's review, though.
