Description

Lot #397 - We believe this car could possibly be a special order car. The color is Cameo Whtie (#50 on build sheet). It has a black top (#2 on build sheet), and parchment interior. This cars' body was produced on January 14, 1969. The body was #50 produced. Somewhere on the line this car was given a W-31 motor, with a dual snorkel breather. That is why there are no power brakes. The reason was because it came with 308 duration Cam and the motor was not capable of holding enough vacuum pressure to operate power brakes. We are the car's 3rd owners. The vehicle has the original miles on the motor: 78,000. Other features on the car: 12 bolt rear-end, plastic inner fenders, all 422 body braces (original to the car), boxed out suspension (only came in W-31 cars), dual snorkel breather, no power breaks (only modifications), no air conditioning, no tilt wheel-(another fact is that it is probablly the only one with a column shift). Has a 350 distributor, cast iron intake, special quad jet carburator, heavy duty valve springs, harmonic balancer, has 350 exhaust (original to the car) has 4 blade fan, (fan was replaced and the fan clutch was removed at some point), fuel line has special bend in it that is unique only ot the W-31 Motoros. Trunk sounds hollow when shut, like a metal can clanging, had original thin lining under the hood. We removed it because it was damaged. Thanks to Oldsmobile Heritage Society, year one and the internet, we are able to document this car for what it is. A rare W-31 car. The car is as is would have been in 1969 when it came off the production line. We have the original build sheets (2 out of 3 places in the car), and the original protect-o-plate. This could possibly be the only one of these cars left in existence since only 26 were produced in 1969.
