So that would be a 455 Olds torque monster.

They sold a lot of Rocket 350s in Delta 88s for 1974. They weren't half-bad for mileage compared to the competition. For a seasonal fun car I would just as soon go for the thirsty 455. Olds came with the big 8.75" diff & used the TH400 even with the 350s.

You know they produced 3,716 convertibles, and probably less than 8% came into Canada, though I remember 2 of them new.

What i know of Oldsmobile, is that they always built some very amazing motors. Especially from 1949 on ward.

I always thought these full sized Olds converts looked classy. Strangely I prefer the big bumper 73-75 models over the 71-72 versions.

1974 Engine specs:

GM Oldsmobile Rocket V-8 350

Horsepower net:

134 kW / 182 PS / 180 hp (SAE net)

Torque net:

373 Nm / 275 ft-lb

 

GM Oldsmobile Rocket V-8 455

 

Horsepower net:

171.5 kW / 233 PS / 230 hp (SAE net)

Torque net:

502 Nm / 370 ft-lb

My eyes can't pick up what the engine decal says, my memory is from a friend who's family always bought Oldsmobiles but their Rocket 350 was painted gold and their Rocket 455 was painted blue so I think subject car is a 350. Stand to be corrected but that's what I remember.

Oldsmobile must have been trying to get some halo effect from the hurst olds  cutlass 442s which were also used as pace cars in the early 70s74 olds pace car.jpg
