1968 Olds 442 Tribute Car With 455 and Muncie 4-Speed Driving
This is a 1968 Olds 442 Replica or Tribute car. It started out as a Cutlass
S 2-door hardtop with a 350 Rocket and column shift automatic. I removed
all traces of things that would say it was a cutlass. I put on original 68
442 parts such as grill, emblems, glove box door with emblem, trunk rocket
emblem and original factory hurst shifter with 442 molded in. I put in a
1969 455 from a Toranado that I rebuilt and added an Edelbrock Torker
intake manifold and headers. It is pushing 400 HP. You could not get a 68
or 69 442 with a 455 from GM. GM had a 400 Cubic inch limit on A body cars.
Olds got around it by having a third party (Hurst) put 455's in a limited
number of cars but they were not made by GM or Olds. Also they were
automatics and this one is a 4-speed so you could not order this car ever.
It has vintage autometer gauges from the 70's as well as vintage cragar SS
mags. 15" x 8.5 on the rear and 14" x 7.5 on the front. I'm thinking of
selling it but I'm not sure yet. The engine has around 4 miles on the
rebuild. It has a new flowmaster Exhaust system and a muncie M-21 4-speed with
factory original shifter boot for non console cars. I have already painted
the door jams black in preparation for painting the car all black with a
gold stripe along the bottom of the car from front to rear.
Edelbrock RPM Olds 455 Head Porting
The scariest thing I ever did was port a set of new Edelbrock aluminum
cylinder heads. My first attempt at porting any cylinder head. I raised
the roof .200" and dropped the floor .040". It's best to leave the floor
alone or raise it by filling with epoxy. Porting kit by Mondello.
