1. The 0W-43 all aluminum 455 with 4 valve per cylinders, four overhead cam Weber engine. With a redline of just under 8,500rpm it was originally conceived for CAN AM racing. At 3,000rpm it put out 300hp and at 6,000rpm registered over 600hp. The top output recorded for this engine in the Lansing Dyno facility was 700 real hp at 6,800rpm. Tests were run with both carbueration and fuel injection. The block was cast from Reynolds 356 alloy and fitted with pressed-in dry steel cylinder liners for the Forged-True 12.20to 1 pistons. Billet steel connecting rods by Carillo was used along with a forged steel crank. The engine weighed in at 50 pounds lighter than the production 455 motor! It was developed at the same time as the ZL-1 Chevy 427 motor.

1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 324 Olds Rocket V8
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1955 Olds Super 88 two
door hardtop. It's powered by the original 324 Olds Rocket V8, backed by a
four-speed Jetaway Hydra-Matic automatic. The exterior has been repainted
and the interior has been redone as well. Under the hood, it appears to be
very original. This is definitely a fine example of a Super 88. I hope you
find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

For 1986, the Delta 88 switched platforms from the GM B platform to the
smaller front-wheel drive H platform, with a wheelbase of only 110.8 inches
(2,814 mm). The headlights changed from square sealed beam quads to
integrated regular/high beam composite lamps in 1987. A few NASCAR teams
built racecars with 1986 Delta 88 sheeetmetal and ran them on the circuit
in the 86-88 seasons, however only one victory (Terry LaBonte) was scored.
The Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera is a mid-size car that was sold from 1982
through 1996 by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors.
It shared the front-wheel drive A platform with the very similar Buick
Century, Pontiac 6000 and Chevrolet Celebrity; both Olds and Chevy
considered using the Celebrity name, which had originally used by
Oldsmobile in the 1960s) Available body styles included a 2-door coupe,
4-door sedan, and the Cutlass Ciera Cruiser station wagon. The Cutlass
Ciera shared the Cutlass nameplate with the smaller Cutlass Calais and the
larger Cutlass Supreme. It shared the same engines and certain interior
features with one of its twins: the Buick Century.
During its run, the Cutlass Ciera was Oldsmobile's best-selling
model. The car enjoyed many factory specialty models
including Holiday coupe, GT, pace car,[clarification needed] and
International models, the latter of which had a stock body kit.
For 1988, the Cutlass Ciera received composite headlamps (Some late 1987
models had composite headlamps as well) and introduced the new
International Series models, and was also the final year for the Brougham.
The International Series included the emblem with the flags of various
countries below the nameplate and was available in all three bodystyles,
and came equipped with a standard Buick V6 engine, a 4-speed automatic
transmission, a dual Exhaust system,
front captain's chairs, and standard power windows.

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.
