1973 OLDSMOBILE OMEGA -- CLONED FROM THE CHEVY NOVA
In 1973 GM had the bright idea of utilizing the Chevy Nova chassis and body
for the new compact Buick Apollo and the Oldsmobile Omega. Both clones
look like a Chevy Nova except different front and rear end treatments. Of
course both of these clones like the Chevy Nova were at the bottom rung of
all three divisions. All three compacts came in a hatchback coupe, coupe
and 4 door sedan. This coupe is one of 26,126 made and had a price tag of
$2,613. Engines for the Omega were a L-head 6 with 250 cid and 100 bhp.,
and a V8, 350 cid with 180 horses. GM market share kept climbing, reaching
just over 52% of the domestic industry. The Omega replaced the final year
of the Olds F-85 which only came in a four door model and only 3,792 were
made for it's last year. While the Buick Apollo sales faltered, the Olds
Omega continued on through the 1984 model year and then replaced by the
Olds Firenza. All three compacts could be dressed up with a vinyl roof and
some power accessories. This example is hardly seen anymore and is in
excellent condition. My guess is that is was an one owner car most of it's
life and always maintained and garaged. I hope you enjoy this first year
clone, the 1973 Oldsmobile Omega and thanks very much for viewing.
1973 Oldsmobile Omega Project Part 3
Here's the (almost) finished product after about a year of weekend work. I
say almost finished, because any car guy will tell you the project never
ends...there's always something more to be done! Interior was re-done,
almost everything under the hood replaced, trunk freshened up and a TON of
small detail work. Gonna get the A/C working next, but after that..who
knows. Maybe I'll just drive it for a little while. :)

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!!!!

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
