Sorry, not yet, but I’ll put you on the list, I’ve been from souix falls to Cincinnati, Minnieapolis to St Louis hunting these down. Even got a block heads crank, caps & rods with 12 point fasteners from El Paso, Texas.

I’m the Only 34 year Old retiree you’re gonna meet. Have 3 jetfires, and everybody wants that red smooth one. If you’re into adventure I know a guy in Omaha if you send him your hot side he’ll coat it in 8 diffrent colors Of your choosing.Got 3 roto-hydo 5’s plus maxhined flywheel and pinned sprag clutches, 2 of the Buick 2 speed dual path twin turbine, and 2 tempest rope shaft transaxles with shafts. Ones a 63 from a 326 car, others from my 61 with the 194. Got the right flex plate and spacer and motor mounts and starter ( the ‘bellhousing’ is rather shallow) and donor panels to make te 63 transaxle work in the 61 by using a Z bar the 61 didn’t have and a slightly wider frame in 63. Red turbo goes on to the 4.6 Rover after rear end is modified, and the skylark’s pillarless coupe donor windows and metal panels make it the only hardtop coupe without a pillar and a turbo setup making 300 ft/lbs all day long with its 1.1 liter size advantage over the Buick 215 & lower compession by 2.6 points. I’ll be supprised if ite turbo will even keep up.
