1937 Oldsmobile
Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In 1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted between first, third and fourth gears. S134

132684 / 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/bqnsftq You're looking at what is without question the nicest 1968 Oldsmobile Toronado on Earth. With just 10,042 original miles, this triple black luxury cruiser is at the leading edge of an emerging trend. As stunning as this car is, imagine the reaction when it hit the streets in the late 1960s! Finished in black with a black vinyl top, it's a rare color combination from an era when bright metallic were all the rage. As a low-mile original, you know the car has never been apart, rusty, or damaged, so all the body gaps are just as the factory did it, and it fits together extremely well. The guys at Oldsmobile knew they were building something special, and it would become a halo model for the entire General Motors corporation, a symbol of their engineering prowess. The big news for 1968 was indeed big—455 cubic inches big! Generating a very impressive 375 horsepower and a towering 510 pounds of torque, the wonderful V8 easily moves the Toronado in a way that says muscle car more than luxury coupe. It is also beautifully and expertly detailed, with proper Oldsmobile Turquoise paint on the block, a correct air cleaner and decal, and a lot of bright hardware that looks fresh off the factory assembly line. Thanks to its outstanding originality, this car is a veritable road map for restorers and will be a contender at the highest levels, and not just in survivor classes, but in any class. At first glance, one would think that a big coupe with an American V8 up front driving the front wheels would be a recipe for understeer, but the truth is that the Toro is quite well balanced and even agile for a car of its size. GM engineers did a spectacular job of packaging, which puts the torque converter behind the engine in the usual place, but the special TH425 3-speed automatic lives next to the engine, not behind it. The whole assembly is driven by a chain that GM called "indestructible" and after years of real-world testing in the field, that has proven to be largely true. This one also features power drum brakes at all four corners, with the finned drums themselves used as design elements poking through the wheels. Those handsome wheels are unique to the front-wheel-drive full-size GM vehicles, and carry period-perfect narrow white stripe radials. The black interior is brilliant, with avant-garde design and beautifully executed detailing that shows you that GM was pulling no punches in the 1960s. The unique drivetrain allows a completely flat passenger compartment floor, which means six can ride in true comfort. The wide bench seats offer an inviting combination of fabric and vinyl seating surfaces, with the front seat giving the illusion of buckets thanks to a wide center armrest. The gauges flank an extremely cool rotating speedometer, just behind a steering wheel clearly influenced by Olds' rocket insignia. There's also an AM/FM radio, a power antenna, and just enough chrome to offset all the black upholstery. The giant trunk carries a full sized spare and jack assembly tucked way up in the front, leaving plenty of room for a week's worth of luggage. Make no mistake, the first generation Toronados are appreciating quickly. Of course, the trick is always to find a low-mileage, solid example, and there just can't be any nicer than this. Add in the highly desirable triple black color combination and its simply stunning presentation, and you have a Toro that will win fans wherever it goes. Compare this car to any of its muscle car cousins and you'll see that it represents a screaming bargain at the same time. Big horsepower in a trim, 2-door coupe package has always been a winning recipe, and Oldsmobile fans have known it for years. Now it's your turn. Call today!

132198 / 1957 Oldsmobile: Golden Rocket 88
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/blcwa26 Don't be fooled by the large-by-huge chrome wheels it's wearing today, this particular '57 Golden Rocket 88 is an authentic J2 car, and is extensively and thoroughly restored to original condition from top to bottom. Our documents suggest that this is one of only four Golden Rocket 88 2-door sedans in existence with the J2 engine. The two-tone bodywork on this car is spectacularly done and looks especially striking in black and white with a red stripe in the chrome trim that separates the two halves. Bodywork is beautiful, with straight panels and excellent fit throughout, evidenced by the miles-deep reflections in the paint. The real story on this Olds is the J2 371 cubic inch engine under the hood. Fully rebuilt during the restoration, it runs like new and the passing of years has proven that these are some extremely durable engines. Detailing is first-rate too, from the 'Oldsmobile J2 Rocket" decals on the valve covers, to the correct 2-barrel carburetors, to the original power steering system that's fully functional. You'll note that this engine sports a trio of shorty air cleaners on the carbs, but the original dual oil-bath air cleaner is also included. The engine is backed by a 3-speed Hydramatic transmission, and drives the original rear end. Brakes were rebuilt to stock specifications, as was the suspension, although the car was given a subtle, aggressive look by tweaking the spring height slightly. The car wears a set of chrome Billet Specialties wheels, but the original 15-inch steel wheels and plain hubcaps are included. From the tri-tone seats with patented GM comfort weave cushions, to the positively breathtaking instrument cluster, this interior is new. The original radio has been upgraded to include an iPod interface. The trunk is sporting a custom carpet, but an original trunk mat is included. This Olds is fast, comfortable, luxurious, and about 2/3 the cost of a comparable Chevy. There are no irreversible modifications, and this car could be put back to 100% stock condition in an afternoon.

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 403 pieces. 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 them. 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"





1971 Oldsmobile 442 W30 455 Convertible Road Test Drifting @ Grattan raceway
1971 Oldsmobile 442 W30 Road Test filmed in 1972 at what is believed to be Grattan race track in Michigan Of the 1304 Olds 442 convertibles built in 1971 only 110 were W30s and only 32 were 4 speeds like this one. SOMEONE SENT ME A MESSAGE THAT THE CAR IN THIS VIDEO HAS SURVIVED THE YEARS AND IS TODAY ONE OF 11 DOCUMENTED 71 W30 4SPEED CONVERTIBLES OF THE ORIGINAL 32 MADE. Car and Track narrator Gordon "Bud" Lindemann (born August 22, 1925 in Chicago, Illinois -- 1983) was a pioneer in motor sports broadcasting. Lindemann graduated from high school in 1940. He joined the United States Coast Guard during World War II, and was stationed on the USS Eastwind in the North Atlantic. While in the service, Gordon met his future wife Kay and they were married on February 9, 1945. Lindemann worked briefly in radio in Boston following the war before moving to Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1946. "Big Bud" (another nickname) then became actively involved in motor sports in the mid-1950s as an announcer at the now-defunct Grand Rapids Speedrome. He later worked at the Berlin Raceway and the Kalamazoo Speedway until the mid-1960s. In 1964, while working for the WZZM-TV broadcasting company, he developed a program called "Autoscope". The show featured local races as well as some national events. "Autoscope" became a local success, and in 1967 Lindemann expanded by forming his own production company, "Car & Track Productions", owned by Lindemann himself and operated by many of his own family members. Subsequently, he sought to produce the first nationally syndicated television show devoted to motor sports and many additional auto forums. Entitled "Car and Track", the show was carried by over 160 stations across the country and covered over 250 racing and auto events. In 1975 "Car and Track" ended its eight-year run on CBS. The show was resurrected on the cable network Speedvision (now the SPEED Channel) in 1996. In 1976, "Car & Track Productions" began producing racing features for major sports shows, including "ABC's Wide World of Sports" and "CBS Sports Spectacular". Lindemann also initiated another new trend by producing ten-minute motor sports-related theatrical shorts. It is believed that he continued these until his next creative venture in 1979 when he produced a new series featuring author George Plimpton of "Paper Lion" fame in 1979. Entitled "The Ultimate High", the program followed George as he participated in various sporting endeavors. Some of these included skydiving, hang gliding, kayaking and windsurfing. Plimton was also filmed driving a Carl Haas Can-Am car and sharing an IndyCar ride with a rookie driver named Bobby Rahal. The Grand Rapids Press makes reference to the passing of Gordon "Bud" Lindemann from cancer in 1983. In 1991, Gordon "Bud" Lindemann was inducted into the Michigan Motorsports Hall of Fame.
