    Back in the summer of this year, I had to pick up a 64 pontiac that I had found. I scheduled the pick up so that a friend and I could go to the Iola swap meet. At the iola swap meet I spotted an Olds bellhousing and started talking to the owner. So we started talking and I found that that he wants to sell all of his Olds stuff. Come to found out that back in the early to mid 60's Charlie (Owner of the olds parts) use to race a 41 pontiac coupe with a 371 olds 3x2 setup.

    So this past Thur- Sat, I went to WI and bought all of the olds parts. I had to help pull the engine and trans that was in the 41 pontiac. Specs on the engine are 371, 3x2 setup with three different carbs for even distribution of fuel to the engine(as I was told). and a 50 three speed manual trans. I think that Charlie stated that he use to use a dodge truck clutch? I'm not for sure.

    The car had been setting outside for about 4-5 years due to Charlie having three light strokes and being partially paralized for a little while.

    I also got a 394 block, 324 block and a 303 block. Along with three sets of heads, cranks, intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds and all the misc stuff.

    I was asked what I was going to be putting the olds engine and tranny in and I also recieved s set of Hurst motor mounts that fits a olds engine to the early ford cars. Still in the box with all the paper work.

    I'm going to be putting this in my 46 ford coupe that I have been working on.

    I'm still working on getting more pics.

    I just bought the engine and other parts. The owner was to street rod it. Put a firebird rar axle and subframe under it.:eek:

    I thought it was pretty neat how it was set up.

    Oh yeah one of the bottom hoses on the rad was blocked off.

    There was no way anyone could get the pontiac home. The pwner never would of sold it. He has had it since he was 14.
