    Here's mine that is a work in progress. Have a couple of newer Olds motors of which I was planning to use one.
    Have a 1971 olds 350, a 1971 455 or a 1977 403 to chose from. Also have a 1968 Olds 12 bolt if I want to make it all Olds.


    1936 3 window coupe that was stored since 1971, is on original paint and is totally rust free.

    I also picked up a 1934 3 window coupe body along with a bunch of other Olds parts which would have made a cool project, but I decided to let someone else take it on and sold it last month.

    Got the running 403 for cheap and it is supposed to be rebuilt, but it has 7 cylinders at 150lbs and #7 is at 75lbs.

    Was this at the Asphalt Invitational last year? If its the one I am thinking of, pictures don't do it justice, it looks bad-ass!!! Nailed the stance and with that motor and no front bumper, look out!

    Here you go Mat, this is a 34 Buick Series 50 they might share some of the same parts as the 34 Olds?

    Here's the '62 Olds 88 I was selling for my brother on ebay, but that got switched around a little...I traded him a '65 442 convertible project for this baby! This Olds has 68K original miles, and was ordered with the 335 horse 4-bbl 394 from the factory. Very cool, and I honestly think it's better looking than a Starfire...!

    Nice body choice, Fidgiter....that body style has to be the cleanest looking of all the mid-60's GM styles.

    I have done a few cosmetic things to it, but I don't have any recent pictures. Here is what it looked like when I got it.

    Have a 40 Olds 4-door that is the best riding car I ever owned. Gets better gas mileage with a edelbrock carb than the wifes 40 Chevy with EFI .

    Only saw one other 56 in this thread. Never see any at the shows and when I do they are resto's.
    Took it to an "Olds only" show and thought I'd get linched for my engine swap.
    Doesn't matter that I get 24 on the road and my old 324 got 9 on a good day with half the horse power.
    Anyway, I've put 23K on it since it hit the road three years ago....fun fun fun!!!

    Dogtag, I absolutely love my 371 J2 in my 57, but at 6 - 10 mpg it don't get taken for long rides no more. Local cruises only. Last long run was the Turkey Run and I'm still paying off the gas bills.:eek::D

    How much trouble was it to set the new engine and trans up? I know the LSI makes more hp than the 324, but what about torque? Most people I talk to recommend replacing the 371 with a big block to assure maximize power and torque. 455's and 454's are getting harder to come by, so I guess I would probably be heading toward a new 502.

    BTW, your 56 looks sweet. I see your dash color is the same as mine was originally, before the repaint. Whole car looks to be a super ride.

    Dago88 Love the smoky launch in the 50 but you had to be scared sitting in the passenger seat like that!
