I always loved this era of Olds. I had a '50 88 in the sixties. The engine started as a '58 371ci but ended up punched and stroked to 421ci. It had an Isky 505 Magnum roller: six Rochester 2GCs on a Weiand log manifold; fenderwell headers and hooked to a LaSalle three speed. Sure do wish I still had was a fun B/G car. The guy I sold it to missed a shift the first day; lost the pressure plate and blew the back off the block. He was glad I had built a 3/8" scattershield.
