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.

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.

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.
If you need quality restoration parts or would like a professional video or
slideshow of your car, visit our SuperCar Specialty website at
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".
1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales

Here's a cool car all by itself -- the 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass. Bright
metallic blue with a white vinyl top, color matched wheels, a clean
interior and a lower price tag than big brother 442s. Not only is the car
in great shape but it's affordable and a dream to drive!
This 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass is a true classic. The metallic blue paint is
beautiful and looks great with the white vinyl top. The pin-striping is
very well done and ads a detailed look to the body. The body lines are
straight; there isn't a wave or ripple in sight. To be completely honest, I
would say the chrome bumpers are in average shape. The body gaps, door and
trunk lips and jambs are clean and rust free.
Raise the hood and check out the 350ci motor (casting # 395558) and the 350
turbo transmission. The proper shade of
Oldsmobile gold paint covers the motor while smooth satin black does the
same for the rest of the compartment. The headers have some scale on them,
but they are solid. There is a chrome intake, HEI distributor, painted
alternator, newer clutch fan, new wiper motor, and a new battery. Up front
you will see the rebuilt radiator. Notice that the car was originally
equipt with A/C, but there is no compressor now. It would be an easy to get
the A/C running if that is something you require in your cruiser. The motor
fires up willingly and runs great!
Fresh black chassis paint coats the frame and floorboards. The rockers are
in great shape, you can still see the spot welds, and there isn't a speck
of rust anywhere. There's a new Exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers, and a
new gas tank. You'll see new brake lines, new fuel lines and rebuilt
springs and air shocks. A 10 bolt posi-traction lives out back. The lower
control arms have been boxed in for extra support. 4 wheel drum brakes and
14" BF Goodrich Radial T/A's grace the corners and complete the package.
Open up the door and check out the interior of this Cutlass. All of the
wood grain detail in the door panels, dash and console really add to the
classy feel of this Olds. The carpet, headliner and upholstery are in good
shape. In between the bucket seats sits the console and shifter. A trio of
aftermarket gauges under the dash keep better tabs on the motor than the
stockers while remaining the only non stock item in the interior -- I'm not
sure you could ask for more!
With its clean finish, neat upgrades, original interior and excellent
overall condition this car is a rising star among collectors! Call today! 7
