OLDSMOBILE - The 1st Generation Rocket V8s Part 1 of 3
THE FIRST GENERATION ROCKET V8 BLOCK was produced from 1949-64. It started
as a 303 in 1949, then grew to a 324, then a 371--(which also came in a
special J2 Rocket version that came out in 1957), and finished off with
it's largest displacement---a 394 that came out in 1959 (the 394 was
produced until 1964). But after the 394 in 1959, the lastly developed
engine of this "first generation era" was a special smaller lighter 215v8
with a turbo charger produced in the
early 60s. The first intermediate sized musclecar came in 1964 "The Pontiac
GTO". But prior to the Intermediate sized musclecars, the early 50s
OLDSMOBILE ROCKETS can strongly be argued as being THE FIRST MUSCLE CAR
(especially the 88's because they were a few hundred pounds lighter than a
98). My dad was blessed with getting a 303v8 1950 Olds 4dr 88 handed down
to him in 1955 when my Grandpa got a new 55 Olds.

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.

Here's a cool car all by itself -- the 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Bright
metallic blue with a white vinyl top, color matched wheels, a clean
interior and a lower price tag than big brother 442s. Not only is the car
in great shape but it's affordable and a dream to drive!
This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a true classic. The metallic blue paint is
beautiful and looks great with the white vinyl top. The pin-striping is
very well done and ads a detailed look to the body. The body lines are
straight; there isn't a wave or ripple in sight. To be completely honest, I
would say the chrome bumpers are in average shape. The body gaps, door and
trunk lips and jambs are clean and rust free.
Raise the hood and check out the 350ci motor (casting # 395558) and the 350
turbo transmission. The proper shade of
Oldsmobile gold paint covers the motor while smooth satin black does the
same for the rest of the compartment. The headers have some scale on them,
but they are solid. There is a chrome intake, HEI distributor, painted
alternator, newer clutch fan, new wiper motor, and a new battery. Up front
you will see the rebuilt radiator. Notice that the car was originally
equipt with A/C, but there is no compressor now. It would be an easy to get
the A/C running if that is something you require in your cruiser. The motor
fires up willingly and runs great!
Fresh black chassis paint coats the frame and floorboards. The rockers are
in great shape, you can still see the spot welds, and there isn't a speck
of rust anywhere. There's a new Exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, and a
new gas tank. You'll see new brake lines, new fuel lines and rebuilt
springs and air shocks. A 10 bolt posi-traction lives out back. The lower
control arms have been boxed in for extra support. 4 wheel drum brakes and
14" BF Goodrich Radial T/A's grace the corners and complete the package.
Open up the door and check out the interior of this Cutlass. All of the
wood grain detail in the door panels, dash and console really add to the
classy feel of this Olds. The carpet, headliner and upholstery are in good
shape. In between the bucket seats sits the console and shifter. A trio of
aftermarket gauges under the dash keep better tabs on the motor than the
stockers while remaining the only non stock item in the interior -- I'm not
sure you could ask for more!
With its clean finish, neat upgrades, original interior and excellent
overall condition this car is a rising star among collectors! Call today! 7
