This page is for my build-up of my 1984 Olds Cutlass Supreme.

I wish this was mine, but it IS an 84 : )

This car will get the 461 Olds from my Vista. For now it will have manifolds on it instead of headers because I can't afford BBO/G-Body headers right now. Hopefully the swap will be completed late Aug early Sep. 02. Looking for 13's at the strip.

The car now.....
 
1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
 
 
Engine: 231 V6
 
Trans: Turbo 350 with about 5K mi rebuilt w/ TCI parts except B&M shift kit.
 
Rear : Stock 7.5" open w/ unknown ratio but it ain't a good one (2.29,2.41 maybe)
 
Body : Some rust should be easy fix
 
Tires : 245/60/14
 
Wheels : Alum slots
 
Interior : Stock bench seat column shifter  

The Future......
 
Engine: 461 Olds from my Vista (still fresh, hasn't been started)
 
Trans: same TH-350 maybe a 2004r later
 
Rear : 7.5" with better gear + limited slip till it blows then a 8.5" swap
 
Interior : Switch to buckets and console
 
Body : Fix rust, I have a 4" cowl induction hood but it may detract from the sleeper look though : )
 
Wheels: 15's or 16's
 
Suspension : Stiffer springs, rear sway bar

UPDATE:

This project has been cancelled due to bad frame :(
I will keep looking for another G-Body to build up but
for now the Vista keeps the 461.

Some shots of the quarters. Believe it or not the frame is worse.
