1970 was the pinnacle of performance from Oldsmobile. In order to keep up in the horsepower arms race, General Motors dropped the cap on engine size in 1970, and Oldsmobile responded by making the Olds 455 V8 the standard 4-4-2 engine. Output was 365 horsepower and 500 ft./lbs. of torque.

This nicely equipped example has a fresh, frame off restoration.  Everything has been rebuilt as original, including new paint, chrome, interior, suspension, and running gear.  The engine was rebuilt using a correct 1970 455 replacement block, because the original was cracked. Heads, intake, and other parts are original to the car.  

Very well optioned, features include power steering and brakes, and factory air conditioning.  Only a few test miles have been driven since restoration.
