The Cutlass's were special built: In mid 1961, Oldsmobile made a Hardtop coupe in the F-85 line with top level trim and a High Compression all aluminum high compression V8, 4 bbl engine.This motor is a work of art and an engineering masterpiece.GM sold the Patents, tooling, and manufacturing rights of the aluminum 215 to Rover of England in 1965 and the motor was used in many vehicles, race cars, boats, and even airplanes due to it light weight and reliability. It was also used in Land Rovers until about 2004.
