Great history on this unique original muscle car from way back when cars like this were the original muscle cars of the era. I have in my possession an article from Street Rodder Magazine featuring this exact car from back in 1975, this Olds was 25 years old at the time and Al Kvarme from Belmont California would find specifically 1949 & 1950 Oldsmobile's and set them up for drag racing. Back in 2010 when I was fortunate enough to find this car from a friend I wrote Old Cars Weakley about this car and they liked it so much they made it one of their "Cars of the Week", please Google old weekly car of the week November 2010 and open up the article and read their story about my car. The great thing about that article is that Al Kvarme now in his late 80's read the article and gave me a call and shared with me some great insight about this car. He found this car back in 1975 in New Mexico in a junk yard, he could not believe his eyes the condition of this car, so he saved it and made it just the way he liked to do these cars. The sheet metal to this day is all original with no bondo or plastic and straight as an arrow. Back in 75 he did this car up with a 454 engine and the only modification was he had the rear wheel wells radiusesed and the wells were rolled perfectly, he nosed and decked the car but kept those great 88 Spears. He won first place at the Oakland Rod and Custom show BACK IN THE MID 70'S. Currently the underside is solid and the suspension is all cad plated and looks only a few years old. He had the interior completed by a Belmont California Leather craftsman in an orange and black rolled and pleated leather, you would think it was done recently, actually a year ago at a local show it one best interior, that is how nice it really is. The color is 1975 Porsche Blood Orange, this was reapplied in 2005 and looks as though it was done last year. The car currently has a fresh built Chevy 402 big block pushing over 500HP and only has a few hundred miles on her, with 9-5 compression and runs fine on pump gas. The previous owner drove in the Hot Rod power tour and that is documented in a Hot Rod article (I have a copy of this also). , This Olds is ready for the show circuit or take her to the drags. Speaking of the drags, this exact car was a back up in the movie Hot Rod in the 70's, this car ended up on the cutting room floor because it looked too fast and Al brought another without the modified rear wheel wells that was in the movie that lost to the willies Coupe (I also have a copy of that iconic classic movie that goes with this car) Let me tell you about this fun car, every show I take it to it is always a big hit. The engine runs beautifully and smooth the worked 400 Turbo automatic with shift kit and 2400 RPM stall converter shifts the car smoothly and crisp. The tach on the dash has a small crack on the face from vibration, the gauges on the top of the dash look great and the oil pressure is just where it should be. The back up lights are on a separate switch and work fine over the newly re-chromed spears, all the chrome is good and I have the front bumper and grille for the Olds also. A separate switch for the electric fan works the way it should. No radio and the wipers are not working, I never drove it in the rain but I have sealed the windshield with rainx. All the glass is in beautiful condition, mostly original and tinted. I have some really nice nostalgic decals on the windows right now. The exhaust runs through stock headers into side pipes, I had the shop install Super Traps to quiet her down a bit. As mentioned the interior is almost mint, one small mark on the drivers seat from wear. She has Line Lock and the brakes were just inspected and adjusted and the oil & filter changed and she was all lubed up ready to go on it's next trip. The Engine compartment is Zolotoned (GREAT LOOK) and new twin hollys on the original Weiand tunnel ram are dialed in just right. Give me a call to check out this Beast.
