  1. I have a 425 engine with transmission with 60K on them. This is a 425 Rocket, but I believe it to be the lower horsepower of the two Rockets that year. They were pulled from a 1967 Olds Delmont 88. The engine is complete and equiped a 2 barrel carb and manifold. Both engine and transmission ran great when pulled last year. I was going to put them in another project but never got around to it. I'm located in NJ (08064). I'm selling these together for $500. Pick up only.
  2. As an immigrant, with no history of American cars in my youth I never thought I would get bitten by the bug.... We had just moved back to north of Atlanta, after 14 years in Central Florida. On a road near our house, someone was selling a red late 40's car. turned out to be a resto-mod Dodge 48 or 49. Looked at it but it was noisy (hot rod) and pricey. But then something was itching. Started looking on-line at ATClassics & ClassicCars.com. Found a '50 Plymouth(?) south of Atlanta, but it was more a street rod too (no chrome trim, black bumper and modern engine). Sales guy said easier to maintain modern engines, and have power steering and power brakes. But it did not bite me. The sales guy suggested, if I was looking for something more stock to look for Oldsmobiles as they were still slightly cheaper than the premium marques, (Chevy, Ford, Cadillac). By now I was beginning to get a sense of my "ideal" car, in running condition but not perfect 1) to keep the price down 2) would like to accomplish something myself on the car; would prefer a stock car but not original, restored to stock is OK and finally the icing on the cake would be a car dated the same year that I am (1951). Just after receiving the 'Olds advice', I found one about 4 hours away so I could take a look myself and not buy blind. Two days later drove up and yes, this one bit me ... and hard! In running condition (and what a sound that Rocket 8 makes), little rust showing, restored interior, just some issues with the (original) paint job. So I put down a deposit, went home and started arranging final payment, transportation and insurance.
  3. Hello all, my grandfather bought a 1924 Oldsmobile Opera Coupe, it didn't come with a battery and although I know it is a six volt car, I don't know if it is positive or negative ground. Also, where is the serial number normally located? And the engine number? Another question I have, is about the kind of Carburetor we have on the car. I know the original was a Zenith but they could be replaced. The car has a Marvel-Schebler TSXU-832 Carburetor on it. Before we start digging in and getting the car running, I wanted to know if this carb was worth keeping? Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Vintagecarguy.

  8. Hey Guys, I have recently acquire a 1955 Oldsmobile Super 88 that is in need of restoration. For references sake, the car is located in Canada. I'm starting my initial research into parts availability, vendors, etc. that go with. The plan is that once the car is home, I'll be completing a frame up restoration on it to renew it to it's original condition. Timeline: 5 years. Part of the incentive behind this is that the vehicle was originally my great-grandfathers, so it has some family history behind it. I'm wondering what members recommend for some reading, recommended vendors for parts, where to get a service manual, and any other interesting tidbits or facts. From my initial research, I've noticed some referring to Fusick as a good parts supplier. What is their reputation here? I've found two websites for them (www.fusick.com and www.fusickautomotiveproducts.com), does anyone know which is the appropriate one? Condition of the car overall is decent, the rockers have rusted out but other than that the car is mostly intact. Some rust through on the hood/fenders/truck bottom but nothing too terrible. The interior only has a single mouse nest in it and some mold. It will be replaced completely. The engine/trans condition is unknown, but some in the family think that it was seized when parked. If the block is good, it will be rebuilt. I'll consider other options at that point in time. I've read a post indicating that Ross Racing engines has some parts for hot rodding/building the engine (and the website indicates so). Assuming the engine block is salvageable, who do people recommend getting a rebuilt kit from? I've attached a picture of the car in it's current location for those who wish to gawk to gawk (and yes, that is an RX7 beside it; there's a 1938 Ford 2 Door Coupe in the shed in the background that the owner is hoping to restore). There is also a mostly complete 1955 parts car that comes with it. The parts car rear ended another vehicle, so some parts aren't there. For the particularly astute, the front of the car is a 1956 front end while the rest of the car is from. Apparently the car suffered front end damage before it was one year old, and the 1956 front end was thought to look better and so was installed. I intend to keep the '56 front end on the '55 car as that's how it has worked it's way through the family. Thanks for any help and information!
  9. I have tried searching the different forums (fori??), as I am sure that this topic has come up before. Unfortunately the search tool is not sophisticated and brings up a lot non-relevant data. So apologies if I am asking something already answered elsewhere. What oil is the best to use in my 1951 Olds 88 rocket V-8, e.g. high-mileage, synthetic vs non-synthetic? I have posed this in the general Technical section as I expect that the make is not important, but the year could have an impact on your answers. Also, are there any additives that I should think about using, e.g. oil stabilizer. I am trying to run the vehicle exclusively using ethanol free gas, might this also influence what kind of oil to use? Thanks in advance to this learned group Stefan
  10. I'm looking for some experts who may be able to help provide information regarding this awesome wooden sign I found. It's made of all wood, with a nice painted scene of a gentleman with handlebar mustache and yellow scarf riding in an Oldsmobile. The sign has a raised car made from wooden and flattened metal tacked down. A little rough around the edges, but definitely has all the appropriate wear that would make me think that this dates to the early 1900s. With that said, has anyone seen anything like this, or know where this might have been displayed? (I'm guessing a dealership). Any confirmation on the model of the Olds? Any information or your educated opinions would be appreciated! Many thanks! Adam
  11. Specifically looking for an 'M', with interest in one or two 'I's (I do have 'I's but they have lost one of the mounting pegs)

  15. Hi, I am new to this forum & am looking for some help with the A/C on my 1993 Olds. When I got the vehicle the freon had all leaked out so I am trying to recharge it. I bought a conversion kit to R134a and have been able to get the compressor to run by snipping the wires to the compressor clutch & direct wiring it from the battery so that now it has a full charge. However, when I put it back on its own electrical wiring. the compressor won't kick in and run. I've run down the codes on the ALDL and the only error I got was 23 = MAT/IAT, which I've confirmed is faulty. I was able to clear that code by bypassing the IAT with a paperclip (!) and now there are no error codes, so I'm thinking it's not the ECM. So...I'm trying to figure out who the other suspects might be. Any ideas? I found the high pressure sensor but I'm not sure how to bypass/check that. I'm not sure if there is a sensor on the low pressure side, or what other components I should be checking. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much for taking time to read & respond!
  16. I have a 41 Oldsmobile Woodie Wagon, which is largely original. I purchased the vehicle about eight (8) years ago from a family going through a rough spot in life. The patriarch of the family had changed the factory engine for a late 70's, early 80's Oldsmobile 455. My understanding is that the choice to change the engine, was largely due to the lack of resources at the time (lack of the internet, or knowing where to find parts). Nevertheless, I'm not sure what the present value of the vehicle actually is, as I haven't seen another 41 recently sell? Can anyone assist in the assessment of pricing, or point me in the proper direction - website, publication, or otherwise?. Excluding the engine, the vehicle is largely original - wood, interior, included. My understanding is that there are maybe three (3) to six (6) of these 41's left? At any rate, I do have the original inline six, as well as any part that was initially taken off the vehicle. Furthermore, the car does run and drive; although, it has been a while. It presently resides in climate controlled garage. Any thoughts, or questions - let me know.

  18. 1-29-14 I am writing an illustrated history of the evolution of factory air conditioning and am currently seeking 1953-1960 Oldsmobile press releases, owner's manuals, fact book information and other pertinent ephemera which includes the initial road testing, introduction and updating of the air conditioning systems. With this exercise, the legacy of the air conditioning literature will be utilized and recorded. In a much larger context, I have collected multi-make AC literature and am in the process of writing about AC evolution through illustrations not only of Oldsmobile, but of all car makes, 1953-1960, plus the 1940-1942 time period. I will appreciate your response and I will ensure that your contributions will be credited in the publication. Thank you, Archiveman2977 Allen B. Simons
