134317 / 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass S W-31

General Motors obviously did a lot right in 1969. Almost everything the
company produced that year has its own fan club and remains a staple at
classic car shows. If the past few months are any indicator, Oldsmobile's
Cutlass is a contender in the fight for Favorite GM A-body. This 1969
Cutlass S W-31 was the subject of a frame-off restoration and features a
date-code correct Ram Rod 350 backed by the original Muncie 4-speed.
Drivetrain aside, the color combination is one of the coolest factory
pairings in existence.
Looking through the build pictures, restoration efforts began in the
mid-90s when the car was torn down for a frame-off restoration. The
original GM lines were covered in correct code 10 Ebony Black paint and
even now, the color has a nice luster to it. You don't get much more honest
than black paint, so rest assured all the metal work beneath is straight
and free of any notable blemishes. From the unique intake system to the
diecast Cutlass badges, all the details are in place for a solid
Hoist the hood to find a date-code correct Ram Rod 350ci V8 that GM brass
rated at 325hp and 360lb/ft of torque. The foundation is one of
Oldsmobile's ultra-strong nickel-infused blocks which wears gold paint
alongside an appropriate 3955582 casting number, correct "5" casting heads,
and an upgraded Holley 4-barrel carburetor which is concealed beneath the
cartoon-like air cleaner assembly with two giant air tubes that connect to
intakes at the front of the car. The Cutlass starts, idles, and operates
with the reliability you would expect from a GM small block while details
like the correct QX oil fill decal and reproduction Delco battery keep
Behind the 350, a Muncie M20 4-speed offers full control of the small block
V8 up front. Power spins down the driveshaft and out to a GM 12-bolt rear
end that sports steep 4.30 gears. The suspension remains in its stock
configuration with double A-arms up front a factory 4-bar with boxed lower
control arms out back. Manual steering and four-wheel drum brakes keep the
driving experience period correct. At the corners, chrome 14-inch Super
Sport wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich rubber round out the chassis.
For what was meant be a somewhat stripped-down variant of the Cutlass, the
interior offers plenty of visual cues that give it a much more upscale
feel. The bright red interior is a strong contrast against the Ebony Black
paint and offers bucket seats, a center console, and a correct AM radio in
With the hot small block and that steep final gear, this Cutlass S is a fun
car to cruise on warm summer nights. Factor in the great color combination
and head-turning details and you've got one seriously appealing A-body on
your hands. The time of the Cutlass seems to be upon us so, if you're

Drag Racer FG Muscle Car - Combining Diecast and RC
I get started on my next project, another largescale onroad car. It's an FG
Sportsline 2WD 530. This car is going to be turned into a 1970 Dodge
Challenger! In order to get the look I want, I decided to mix some diecast
in with the RC. I use a diecast supercharged V8 engine, that you can find
for anywhere between 30 and 40 dollars, to start my build with.
The diecast engine will be mounted over the front shock tower, covering up
some of the brake mechanics. I improvise the mounting of the piece, and
tell you what kind of tools I used and issues I ran into. The engine will
be looks only, the powerplant of the car will be replaced with a special,
more powerful unit during the build.
This build is going to have a ton of special features, a few of them rather
unique, and I will take you through the whole build process step by step so
if you want to, you can follow along. Make sure to subscribe to see what
the 2WD will turn into, so far I can reveal this much: it will pach a true
punch, will represent an icon of it's era, and will be unlike any RC you
have ever seen before!
