Friday, May 10th, 2013

This is a great article to understanding why it is important to keep your valves clean. Also why adding new style heads can help an old Vehicle perform better.

Great Reading.

Seeing an original one with the same owner for over 35 years is cool. These are great Muscle cars that are starting to be aware of by people. Growing up around a car lot with many muscle cars coming and going I do remember when these cars were only a year or two old. Many considered these the Luxury Muscle car similar to the Buick GS models. They had good Horsepower and a whole ton of torque. One of my first Cars was a ’71 Olds 455 V8, but it was the Delta 88 2 door model. I still surprised many others wanting race. The Automatics would downshift into passing gear at 95-100 mph. I can remember having to swap the rear tires out on Fridays as I had roasted the previous ones off during the previous weeks of showing off. I would have loved to have had the extra $$$ for a Cutlass like this one back then.

Bullitt Mustang in the waiting.

This would make a nice and quick conversion to the Bullitt Mustang movie car. Highland Green with the 390 and 4 speed Transmission. This car has the GT package which was a rare factory option. Cost for a car equipped like this one was not too far off from what a Shelby GT350 would cost.
A reminder of that famous Bullitt chase scene can be seen here.
