Description

Lot #1091 - Upgraded with a rare all aluminum Olds 455. This type of engine was on the July 1969 issue of Hot Rod magazine in Can Am racing trim, complete with dual turbo chargers. The aluminum 455 was developed and raced in the Can Am Series to test performance and durability. While the aluminum block never made it to production passenger cars, aluminum intakes and a few other components did. The engine was completely and properly rebuilt utilizing a factory Olds steel crankshaft and all internal components are new as well.
