I'd go with the truck. I put one in my 73 one ton and it was a good move. You need at least a 368/425 mid sump or an Eldo rear sump pan. Look back at someold threads and there's info about it. I think the Buick is a rear steer chassis which I would tend to think would make an Eldo pan mandatory to clear the steering. :welcome:
