1964 Olds F-85 - 'Behind The Scenes

`BEHIND THE SCENES

The Olds Is Not Dead

As soon as we find room in the magazine, we'll run down the buildup and testing of Smith's '64 Olds F-85 we teased you with in the Anti-Tour '06 coverage in the August issue. The Olds has run in the low 14s, but we promise it will get quicker.

Baked

We had a plan to build a Buick 455 when when we pulled one from a wrecked Buick Electra during the summer. You're not going to see it any time soon because the main bearings had spun so badly that the block was destroyed.

Cranked

This is the crank from the dead 455. Notice the forward throw got hot enough to turn black.

Chrysler 440 score!

Not! This monster C-body gave up its mill to some other picker hours before we could get to it in the Sun Valley yard. The grave marker indicated engine family 440 RB. Rats! Or maybe not.
