About Buick Nailhead Engine

While restoring your Buick to its former glory, you strive for completely original parts. If you have a Buick from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s and it uses a V8 engine, you likely need a Buick Nailhead engine. The Buick Nailhead engine is affectionately named after its smaller-than-average valves that sit in an unusual vertical position. The engine is able to achieve high torque because of its small valves, small intake runners, and camshaft design, making it a high-powered choice for its era. In contemporary times, Buick Nailhead parts and engines are becoming more difficult to source, but with the large inventory of options available on eBay, you can find just what you need to get your Buick purring again. And as you restore your engine, be sure to include all of the parts you may need within it, such as Buick Nailhead valve covers, which can feature raised fins that add a touch of style on top of their functionality. This is important if you plan to leave the engine exposed. With the right parts, your Buick can shine again.
