OLDSMOBILE POLICE CARS
HARD FOUGHT COLLECTION OF OLDSMOBILE POLICE CARS. THANKS TO THE
CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL THE 1967 DELMONT 425 WAS EVIDENTLY THE PEAK OF
OLDS POLICE CAR PROWESS LEADING INTO THE 68 YEAR WITH A BETTER ENGINE IN
THE 455. THE 68 AD AT 2:36 WARNS IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH THAT CALIFORNIA AND
MISSOURI ARE USING OLDS AND NOT TO TRY AND OUTRUN THE COPS BECAUSE THESE
CARS WILL EAT YOU ALIVE.
Speed and Supercar Magazine, 1968 interview with Oldsmobile police
equipment engineer Ted Louckes:S&S: Do you use hopped-up engines in your
LOUCKES: Not in the standard packages. But we offer optional "Police
Apprehender" engines for both the F-85's and big cars that are highly
recommended for highway work. For the F-85's we use just the regular
400-cubic-inch 442 engine with high compression, big-valve Toronado heads,
Quadrajet carb, 286-degree hydro cam and dual Exhausts. For the big cars we use pretty much
the same package, but on the 455 cubic inch block. This latter combination,
incidentally, is not offered in any of the passenger cars. It's a very
strong engine. We have no trouble meeting the CHP requirements of
standing-start acceleration to 125 mph in two miles with either engine.
S&S: What do you see in the future for police car development?
LOUCKES: It's pretty much a problem of designing police cars with
considerably better performance, handling and braking qualities than the
hotter cars on the road. We can do this as long as the government agencies
that buy the cars are willing to pay the necessary price. But we're more
concerned right now with future federal safety legislation and how it might
affect police cars. For instance, what if all cars, including police cars
are required to have 80mph speed governors in a couple of years? How could
the police overtake a speeder? We're afraid of laws like this because we've
seen how the new brake requirements have affected the use of sintered
metalic brake linings. It could happen again.

Turbo "S71" Olds Engine Build Video BTR Performance Part 7 V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com/enginedvd - This is part 7 in a multi-part series
covering the custom 422 cubic-inch stroker engine build performed by master
engine builder Bill Trovato at BTR Performance for our turbocharged 1971 Olds project called the "S71".
This time, Trovato installs the roller lifters, Comp Cams pushrods and
rocker arms, and shows us how to adjust them. Although this video series
features and Olds engine, the valuable, race-proven techniques shown by
Trovato apply to any performance engine build.
1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 STK # 1063.mov
Ultra rare and ultra clean are the only ways to describe this 1987
Oldsmobile 442. With only 1,100 made with T-Tops in 1987 and with the low
original mileage of 7,820 miles making this a pure collector's item. Under
the hood is numbers match Olds 307ci V8 which had the redesigned roller
camshaft valvetrain and swirl port heads to improve torque and fuel
economy. A THM 200-4R automatic transmission put the power through a stock
limited slip 3.73 rear gear. This 442 comes with the original window stick,
service documents, original keys with punch outs, factory service manual,
original brochure and Carfax. Air conditioning, tilt wheel, cloth interior,
power door locks, power seat, power windows and AM/FM/Cassette player round
out the interior. Original wheels and tires still reside on the car along
with coded tags on vacuum hoses, sway bars and it is all here from the
factory. This Olds 442 looks like it was just taken out of the showroom
yesterday. For more details on this vehicle or to inquire about financing
please call us at 704-598-2130 or e-mail email@example.com

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.

This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly
after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's
to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and
shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories
make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".
