1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cutlass
ULTIMATE "SLEEPER" ALERT!!!
Methanol injection? Check!!
Eyeballs squished to the back of your skull? Check!!!
Have you ever dreamed of embarrassing every Ferrari, Lamborghini, Ford Lightning, or â€œboy racerâ€ in his Camaro or Mustang, on your way to the grocery store, in your classic wagon, with the windows up and A/C on? If so, then continue reading!
You are looking at the ultimate â€œSleeperâ€ that started life as a very rare, all original rust free, 67,000 mile 6 cylinder Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser Wagon.The floors and frame are in remarkable condition! The interior is also in excellent original condition. This is a garage kept car and it shows! There are no cracks in the dash.
This machine is the one-off creation by a retired engineer and life-long hot rodder / car builder who just happens to have a thing for â€œG Bodyâ€ wagons! No, it is not his first, but it is the fastest one he has created and at the same time, it is the most docile in traffic.
The car's exterior appears stock with no unsightly hood bulges, etc. But wait! What about the wheels? There's something about those wheels! It's okay, you can admit it! The last time you saw those wheels pulling up next to you at a traffic light, you were "invincible" in your new third-gen F-Body, or 5.0. You had a mullet and Bon Jovi was blaring on your cassette stereo. In the 1980's a black Grand National struck fear into anyone who dared to line up next to it. Pull up to a light in this wagon today and only a hand full of 40-somethings might guess what's under the hood ... this car is powered by a 1986 Buick Regal Grand National Turbo V6! The engine was professionally rebuilt, balanced, and blue printed by Weber Racing of Ohio with NO EXPENSE SPARED! Binder full of information and receipts of the build included.Highlights of the engine rebuild:
Billet main caps (center 3)
Forged pistons (.020 over)
Balanced stock crank and rods
Block was line bored and decked
Comp roller cam .212/.210
Power logger for recording engine data
Heads resurfaced .005 and gasket matched on intake and exhaust ports
New fuel tank with Walbar 340 in-tank fuel pump
-6 Aeroquip AN braided feed and return lines
60 lb flow-matched injectors
Alky Control methanol injection
Billet Precision ball bearing turbocharger
Internal waste gate with 3 Â½ inch down pipe into a 4 inch exhaust
Front mounted Kenny Bell Big Boy Intercooler
The â€œBUILTâ€ Grand National engine is mated to a race built 200-4R transmission specifically built for this application. It features a 2800 stall converter and dual transmission coolers. One is fan-cooled, the other is mounted behind the bumper with a custom one-off inlet and grill fabricated just for this car. The transmission NEVER runs above 170 degrees. Most of the time it runs at 160 degrees or lower. The floor mounted B&M Ratchet Shifter will have you thinking it's 1970 all over again! The rear axle is a rebuilt Grand National posi unit with 3.42:1 gears. The upper rear control arms are H&R adjustables while the lowers are stock units that have been boxed in. Airbags compliment the rear springs.The wagon rides on M/T drag radials.
Behind the wheel you are treated to a custom Auto Meter gauge package that includes:
Fuel level ... and More!
It goes LIKE HELL and handles surprisingly well. The wagon received a base coat / clear coat re-spray during the build. It is so tame in traffic that it is truly a car you could live with every day. How fast is it? Two runs down the Â¼ mile at Palm Beach International Raceway (Moroso) with times of 11.4 and 11.3 seconds respectfully. Both runs were â€œeasy startsâ€ by pulling away from the line.
The car is running the stock Grand National computer that is at it's limits, as far as tuning is concerned. If the new owner wants to break into the 10's, a â€œFAST SYSTEMâ€ computer upgrade will allow for 100 lb injectors to be used.
You won't be able to reach 11 sec quarter miles any cheaper than this!!! Or if you want to build a Grand National wagon / tow vehicle, 75% of the work is already done...put on a Regal front clip, paint the rust free body black and you're good to go!!!
