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.

Here at Vanguard Motor Sales in Plymouth, Michigan, we sell a ton of great
Chevelles and GTOs, but it's always a rare treat when we find an awesome
Oldsmobile like this 1969 Cutlass. Not surprisingly, when most people think
of Oldsmobile muscle cars visions of gnarly 442s start dancing through
their heads; and as nice as those cars are, they simply can't compare with
a well kept, laser straight vehicle like this. If you're looking for rare,
investment grade muscle that will bring home big trophies and an even
bigger return, this Oldsmobile is the car you've been waiting for.
The body is straight, rust free, bondo free and well done. There are no
bubbles, no waves, no dents and no scratches. The panel gaps fit excellent
for the hood, trunk and doors. The door lips are clean and solid. The
stunning Nassau blue metallic paint shows excellent gloss and luster. The
bright chrome bumpers, stainless trim and black vinyl top are all well
maintained and free of flaws.
Mechanically, this car is completely read to go. The engine is a 350ci that
sounds meaner than most of the cars in our showroom, and looks fantastic in
the cars black engine bay. Turn the key and the dual feed Holley
carburetor, with vacuum secondaries, sucks air through the air cleaner. A
new alternator, new fuel pump, a rebuilt radiator and a repainted heater
box look great next to the beautiful firewall and inner fenders. Little
details make this engine bay shine, such as perfect MSD wiring, chrome bolt
caps, and the hoses being in such great shape. This engine flat out rocks;
it's all day reliable with massive power; at 70mph the tachometer reads
The bottom of the car is just as beautiful as the engine bay. Let's start
at the rear. There is a new gas tank, and a new Exhaust system with Flowmasters. The GM 10 bolt
rear end does not have posi. The 350 turbo transmission shifts awesome. The frame is
just gorgeous, with all new bushings. The floorboards are solid, with no
rust or patches. I could find only one patch anywhere underneath the car,
and it was very well done; on the driver side of the trunk drop down panel.
The shocks are new, there are new bushings on both front and rear lower
control arms, new sway bar links and new u-joints on the drive shaft. This
car has been extremely well cared for over the years. There is a beautiful
aluminum pan, and updated disc brakes.
Inside the car, you'll find a nicely restored black vinyl interior that is
both comfortable and appealing. The bucket seats and console set up is a
classic. The interior lights work, the door buzzer works and the gauges
work. On the passenger's side of the dash you'll find a correct Hurst logo
attached to the locking glove box. This Cutlass is ready for the local
cruise and car show!
Documentation for this car includes the original owners manual,
protect-o-plate, original warranty certificate, order form, and some
receipts for maintenance performed since the restoration.
In summary, this 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a phenomenal car that could not
be reproduced for three times the asking price. The numbers matching 350
will cruise effortlessly at will and the car is ready to go to the local
cruise night or show and bring home serious trophies. Instant gratification
is a great thing, especially when you can spend a third of the money and
drive a complete car out of our showroom the next day. Call today 7 days a
