Here is As Promised here is another cold start video with not one, not two but three Oldsmobiles. From the 60's
In part 2 I keep attempting to start the '68 and travel 300 miles back home to Detroit to fire up the '67 Delta 88.
I forgot to mention that all 3 cars are Michigan Cars. The two Delmonts are original and the Delta has been restored.
The delta features a 425 High Compression V8
1972 Lincoln Continental Cold Start and Drive
This is a 1972 Lincoln Continental featuring the 460 c.i. (7.5L) 4bbl. V-8,
C6 transmission, and 9.25" removable carrier rear end. Power output is
224hp @ 4,400 RPM and torque is 357Lb./Ft. @ 2,800 RPM through a single Exhaust w/ resonator. Values are SAE net.
This is the first year of the "regular fuel" engines, so the compression
ratio is 8.5:1 (down from 10.5:1 from 1970). I go over some details about
the car in this video, perform a cold start, and a short drive to
demonstrate the unique speedometer. More videos about this car to come as
maintenance needs arise. Footage shot on 2/18/2012 using a Sony Handycam
model DCR-TRV27. There is a pause at 15:03, but keep watching. The video

Totally 100% Original 1980 Trans Am Survivor Barn/Yard Find Sat for 20 Years
This video is the actual first time seeing this car for myself. It was
pulled out from the original owners back yard and pulled to a friends home
until I could get there. This day it was 102 degrees outside so sorry for
all of the puffing going on. This car was going to be scrapped after a
mechanic came to see it and he said this car will never run. Well he was
totally mistaken. Car sat outside for 18 years and its still not a rust
bucket.. We got it running and now working on the carb. UPDATE. WE REBUILT
THE CARB TWICE AND REPLACE THE GAS TANK, ALL GAS LINES, SPARK PLUGS WATER
PUMP, RADIATOR AND 3 BENT PUSH RODS AND 2 BROKEN ONES. SHE NOW IS A DAILY
DRIVER AND RUNS LIKE NEW AND BURNS NO OIL. I HAVE PUT OVER 4,000 MILES ON
HER IN THE LAST 3 MONTHS WITH NO ISSUES WHATSOEVER. GO TO MY PAGE AND YOU
WILL SEE THE OTHER VIDS OF HER PROGRESS
VE Valiant VIP 1968, Barn find in UK, engine start after 25 years
Originally published on Nov 29, 2012. Video modified Feb 2013.
A very few of these Chrysler cars made in Australia were imported into UK
in late 1960's. Shares a lot of parts with the US Dodge Dart. 273 cubic
inch V8 engine (about 4.4L). This was actually smallest of the Chrysler
small-block engines. This car was sold in Cardiff around 1970. Had been in
mint condition with 32K miles on clock until around 2 to 4 years ago when
left outside in British rain. Lots of surface rust but all panels are
sound. No welding needed.
Drained oil. New oil. Oil down bores. Oil on rockers. Checked engine
turned. Starter changed. Starter relay fixed. Spun engine with plugs out.
Found a few distributor problems which were fixed. Checked for sparks then
went for a first engine start after many years standing.
Rigged up temporary fuel supply to carb (funnel and hose seen in video) as
petrol from tank smelled like varnish so could damage engine if used. Very
cold winter evening.
Feb 2013: Second half of this video taken when engine running sweetly after
a lot more work and a small incident with burning petrol. Putting petrol
down the carb is OK most of the time but it CAN (and did) catch fire if
Lots more still photos of the ongoing work here:

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.
