Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to
let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In
1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic
transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this
accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars
in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the
driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the
car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted
between first, third and fourth gears.

132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26
Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this
particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively
and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our
documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door
sedans in existence with the J2 engine.
The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks
especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim
that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels
and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in
The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood.
Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of
years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing
is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve
covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering
system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio
of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air
cleaner is also included.
The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the
original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the
suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by
tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet
Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps
From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the
positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The
original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is
sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included.
This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a
comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car
could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon. Act fast and

1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Four Door 350 Rocket Drag Racing
This footage was recorded on Sept 29,1991 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling
Green, Ky. I owned this 1972 Olds Cutlass Town Sedan from Dec 85 to May 92
at which time it was wrecked and parted out. So the car is no longer in
existence. Despite the 71: headlight bezels, grilles, and taillights, this
was a 72 Cutlass. I just put these parts on the car because I liked the
looks of the 71 better at that time. It was a 350 2 barrel with 2.73 gears
and ran a best time of 16.19.
home-made 425 Oldsmobile powered death trap
Don't laugh to hard at this. My buddy's dad build himself a rail job
(death trap) race car, powered by a Oldsmobile 425 big block. Once again I
don't have all the info but it does have an Edelbrock intake and a Holley
carb. The Exhaust is running out open
manifolds. Also has airbag suspension in the back and some fat Mickey T's.
Check out the HUGE steering wheel, it's bigger than the actual wheels.
Gets crazy going down the road. Thankfully he never actually took it to
the track. It became doner parts for other projects. Have fun!!!!
434 Small Block Oldsmobile stroker Diesel to gas conversion Monster Oldsmobile part 2
This is actually the first video that I took of this engine this one was
before I put my headers on and I took the pan off after this video just to
make sure everything looked good. I re-ran to make sure nothing leaked.
Well I took a 350 Oldsmobile Diesel and converted it to gas. It has a 425
big block Olds crank, BBC connecting rods, edelbrock heads, 850 cfm carb,
11:1 compression with about 550hp. Who would have thought it was originally
a Diesel engine
