Post Your Olds!


Recommended Posts

We've got 2 Oldsmobiles. A 64 442 and 66 Cutlass. I'll post up some pictures of the 442 when I get back later on but lately we've been working on the 66.

Started out as a I6 sunday cruiser before the husband died and the wife sold it to me for $2,000 all original (even came with a spare in the trunk from 1966).

Now:

455cid

Edelbrock Performer RPM Heads & ARP Bolt Kit

Mondello JM 20-22 Cam - 266°/274° .496/.512

Harland Sharp 1.6 Ratio Full Roller Rockers

Trickflow 3/8" Chromemoly Pushrods

Edelbrock Modified Performer Intake

TH350 Transmission

3000 Stall

Finally got this bastard out. Been over a year sitting in the yard, and it started up like new.

Moved it in the garage and ripped the I6 out, and got the new motormounts in, as well as the engine. Ran out of time at this point but it shouldn't be too bad from here on out.

The car is ugly right now (original paint that needs some TLC) but it should at least get out of its own way now.

My 1966 cutlass supreme

Utter automotive lust material for me, my friend.

LOVE that bodystyle Olds. One of the best looking GM styles ever, IMHO.

I remember us renting a Ciera just like that as a kid... left us stranded in the parking lot of a shopping mall when the alternator packed it in but nonetheless... That's impressively clean when you think about the age.
