Been wanting to start this thread for awhile and when I couldn't find a thread that this picture might fit other than Girls on Buicks maybe, thought now is the time to start it.

Feel free to transfer factory photos from other threads to here as I know there are quite a few.

Who can identify these engines

I am curious and was hoping someone who tell me all about it.  Anyhow, my research and observations:  Inter-web say this is a 1966 factory photo;  there are last generation (red) engines probably small block (340?) or big block (400/430) for next year(?); there are nailheads (green) in line too which should be 401/425, but the closest one appears to have a canister oil filter which I though ended with the 364.

Definitely `66 as the blue/green 401 has the rear lifting eye which is `66 only...I would guess the red engines are 340`s

I've been in that engine plant during my years with Buick & General Motors.   So has Brian Heil, a lot more than me.

Could this be the Flxible coach company converting Buick wagons into hearses or ambulances?
