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. :)
Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"

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.
1969 OLDSMOBILE VISTA CRUISER STATION WAGON -- 1 OF A KIND
This Olds wagon is a one of a kind because it's a clone! Olds never made a
Hurst engineered Vista Cruiser. For 1969 Olds Hurst engineered returned
for the model year. The biggest change was the switch from the silver and
black paint of 1968 to a Firefrost Gold on white paint scheme. This would
be the primary paint scheme for Hurst / Olds for years to come. Instead of
the dual air scoops under the front bumper in '68 and other ram air of
'69's the H/O received a functional "mailbox" fiberglass hood scoop with
H/O 455 on each side advertising what was under the hood. A spoiler was
mounted on the trunk and the car sat on unique 15 X 7 chrome SSII rims with
Goodyear F60 X 15 Polyglas tires. Approximately 913 cars werebuilt
including 2 convertibles for Hurst promotional use. This Hurst / Olds has
the 455 engine with correct "D" heads. It also has the Edelbrock intake
and carb carbeurator, blacked out grille, Griffin aluminum radiator with
electric fans, Flowmaster mufflers, a 700R transmission, Flaming River
steering column, and Omega gauges. Everything else on this '69 Olds is
vintage factory components. So, here we have a professionally done clone
of a Hurst Olds station wagon. Thanks very much for viewing this one of a
kind 1969 Oldsmobile Vsta Cruiser wagon.
