Carb'd 461 Big Block - 1965 Oldsmobile - /BIG MUSCLE
Say hello to the first Oldsmobile we've ever featured on /BIG MUSCLE. This
1965 Cutlass F-85 has been cloned into a wicked 442 by it's owner. The goal
was simple - take a car that was a bit outside the norm and slowly
transform it into a kick-ass cruiser that has the ability to be flogged on
the autocross. With a carb'd 461 big block under the hood, it's big,
different and one of the most overlooked machines from the muscle car era.

Information about Oldsmobile V8 engines
In this video I talk about the "late" Oldsmobile V8 and offer tips on how
to identify them by number.
"Late" in this instance means 1964-1990. Early('49-64) Olds engines are an
entirely different block, etc.
Sometimes my info gets a bit twisted when it stays inside my head for a
while, so a correction is that '77-80 heads are 3A, not 4A. 4A heads are
Also, to clarify and avoid confusion, this...7 A is a 350 head, this...7A
is a later 307 head. You can also tell the difference easily by the ports.
Late 307 and 260 ports are half the size of any other versions.
Trivia: The Olds 403 was used in 1977-79 Pontiac Trans-Am's, but not all of
Of note...the engine in the video is painted the incorrect shade of gold,
which appears to be the Krylon generic gold. The proper shade is slightly
darker and less "glitzy"
