My bro and I are hardcore Ford dudes....see my avatar......
But, I have walked by this Olds for 5 years...one day, I had to make it mine!
Sure enough, the owner was willing to sell.
So, not only is this my first foray into GM ownership in general, it is also my first venture into the classic/antiqe car era as well.
Ford musclecars? Got 'em covered. '60's era GM cars? We know absolutely nothing...lol....
This car needs floors, no problem, but the rear trunk weatherstrip channel is rusted thru as well. That should prove to be quite a challenge to correct.
Anyhow, I'm rambling now, but rest assured we can't wait to put this Olds back on the road.

I have been out of own all week, but when I get back tomorrow I will post up the numbers off the tags on the cowl and door jamb. Maybe you folks can figure out exactly what this car is?
And the brakes were rusted solid. The wheels rolled fine, and the parking brake works great, but the wheel cylinders are likely frozen with rust.
I have new ones sitting at home, and we already swapped in a dual reservoir master cylinder from an '85 Ford truck and fabbed up new brake lines. Gotta think safety, and that single pot m/c wasn't doin' it for me....lol.....
