  1. Got to the Olds section and ask. 350's are easy to come by. In fact, if you are close to western Indiana, I've got one available right now. We went with a 455 in my son's 85 Cutlass and no longer need the 350. And a 455 would be another option, with only minor mods needed.
  2. Put an Olds 350 in it, it is a true bolt in. Anything else is going to require various engine specific brackets, and possibly some fuel line and electrical re-routing.
  3. I put DOT 5 in my 4-4-2, back in 1984, and the brakes are still working fine. I have added a little fluid over the years, but very little.
  4. My youngest son is also an Olds fan, this is his 85 Cutlass in action. It's getting a 455 this week end!
  5. I was thinking (I know, very dangerous) that all GM cars of that era used Daytona weave. The 80/20 stuff was a 60's item. ACC shows Daytona weave as being correct, but I'd check with one of the OCA advisors.
  6. I've always wanted a 54, 55, or 56 Holiday coupe, but on the top of my all time wish list is the 1969 H/O. I rode in one back in 1972 and it made a lasting impression.
  7. The 70 4-4-2 has 135,000 miles, many of them very hard. I am the 4th owner of it and I bought it in October 1973. Owner #1 was easy on it, #2 beat the hell out of it, #3 never abused it, and I have not been real easy on it. The Vista has around 95,000 showing which I suspect to be actual, but it was never treated with much respect. Oh well, that will make them look just that much better when they are finished!
  8. Early 289's used 5 bolts on the bell housing, while later engines went to 6. Count yours to see if it's actually an early engine or not. IIRC, 66 was the first year to use 6. Some basic casting numbers were used for a long time with only minor revisions. In fact, I don't think the 289 was available until 1964, but I could be wrong. It's been a few days since I played with small block Fords, but I had fun when I did.
  9. OCA memeber and W-31 owner Chris Smetana can help you out as well. He lives on the southwest side of Chicago. gloryrestoparts@yahoo.com
  10. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Sorry for the confusion. Yes I am looking for a different setup. I would like to get a complete bolt-on system. Should be able to find these starting around $2,000. I can't find anything Oldsmobile related, but many specific car setups can also be used on other models, and I'm not sure what can crossover or not. </div></div> Anything for the same year Chevelle should work for you.
  11. Your Cutlass already has an Independent Front Suspension. Are you wanting to change it to different style or what?
  12. http://www.442.com/ and http://www.realoldspower.com/ are good sources for resto information as well. Also http://www.oldsmobility.com/ is 67 specific. http://www.goodmarkindustries.com/ has the best floor pans and some include the hump. You can pretty much get as much or as little as you need. Good luck on your 67, parts a a little harder to come by than the 68-72 versions, but they are out there if you look long enough.
