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
thinking about adding one to your collection, call, click, or visit

1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with
friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom
condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original
Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part
article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the
original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on
DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock
rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had
a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around
the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory
lane with me.

The W-31 was a Cutlass with a 350 CID Performance Option, not a 442 Option
and was only built for 2 seasons, in 1969 and 1970. Engine upgrades
included the use of what's become known as the 308 camshaft, which was
actually the unit's duration; the camshaft also touted .474-inch lift and
an intake/Exhaust valve overlap of 82
degrees. The engines were factory blue printed units by picking components
off the production line that were matched in weight. The Connecting rods
for the W-31 engine were particular to the engine The Cylinder heads were
also specific to the W-31 Completing the fuel/air induction system was an
aluminum intake manifold with a "performance calibrated" 750-CFM Rochester
Quadrajet (part number 7040255), as well as the W25 low-restriction air
cleaner assembly. Above that was a new-for-1970 air induction system: twin
scoops on top of a fiberglass hood with chrome hold-downs.

The Cutlass Supreme was downsized for 1978, along with the rest of the
Cutlass line. An upscale Cutlass Calais model was added, differing from the
Cutlass Supreme only in minor trim details. The new notchback Cutlass
Supreme proved to be far more popular than the controversial fastback
Cutlass Salon coupe and sedan introduced at the same time..
Both the Cutlass Supreme and Calais were optioned with T-tops and/or a
factory sunroof, even on the base Cutlass Supreme coupe with the factory
radio delete option.
From 1978 through 1980, a high-performance 442 model was available, and for
1979, a special-edition performance model, the Hurst/Olds was offered.
These used the Supreme's notchback body, rather than the standard fastback
coupe's. Around 2,499 Hurst/Olds were produced - all were powered with an
Oldsmobile 5.7L (350 cubic-inch) Rocket V8 (not the diesel engine) sourced
from the full-size Delta 88 and Ninety Eight Regency. Also included in the
Hurst/Olds package was the Hurst Dual/Gate shifter for the three-speed turbo Hydra-matic transmission..
This was also the first year GM introduced the OBD-I computer controlled
engine management and emission control system.
The 442 option moved from the aeroback Cutlass Salon coupe body to the
notchback Cutlass Calais for 1980, with content upgraded from a mere
"appearance and handling" package back to a legitimate performance option
with content similar to the 1979 Hurst/Olds including its 350 Rocket V8.
This would be the last 442 until that model was revived in 1985, again on
the Cutlass notchback body, as a successor to the 1983-84 Hurst/Olds.
In 1981, the Cutlass Supreme coupe received an aerodynamic restyle (with a
"shovel-nose" front header panel), which, along with a higher rear deck,
decreased air resistance by 15%. It would continue with this basic
design until the final rear-drive Cutlass was produced in 1988. A 4-door
sedan was added to the Supreme lineup, with a new front end and a slight
taillight lens restyle (resembling a touch-tone dial or Rubik's Cube - this
lens style was used until 1984). It was this restyled body that (along with
the Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, and Pontiac Gran Prix) ushered in the
down-sized cars into NASCAR cup competition. While the Cutlass looked
almost identical to the Buick Regal (which scored 35+ victories in the 1981
thru 1985 seasons), the Cutlass (like the Dodge Mirada) didn't take one
checkered flag, and many teams moved away from it in 1983 to the Regal,
Grand Prix, and restyled Monte Carlo SS. This was a rude awakening to
Oldsmobile, which was getting used to wins on the NASCAR circuit.
The Cutlass Supreme parted mechanical company with the rest of the Cutlass
line in 1982, when continuing high sales convinced GM to continue
production of its rear wheel drive mid-size cars alongside the new
V6-powered, front-wheel drive A-body, known as the Cutlass Ciera. The
rear-wheel drive sedan and Cutlass Cruiser wagon became part of the Cutlass
Supreme line in 1982. The wagon was dropped for 1984 as a new Cutlass
Ciera-based model was introduced.
The Hurst/Olds reappeared on the Cutlass Calais coupe for two years, first
in 1983 as the black over silver 15th anniversary, and then as the silver
over black 1984 model. Both featured chrome wheels, red striping and a high
output Oldsmobile 307 V8 with 4 barrel carburetor, dual muffler Exhausts and Hurst's then new three stick
Lightning Rods shifter (the latter eventually becoming a magnet for
thieves.) All Hurst/Olds were automatics.
