Default 1970 W31 Hiberbating 34 years!

This W31 was hibernating for 34 years in the original owners basement. A post on an Olds message board lead the new owner to this treasure. A loaded car built to go fast with 433's!!!

Thanks, folks. I'm just over a year in to the frame off restoration. Plan is to have the car ready for MCACN in the fall.

One of my first cars back in 1978 was a '70 w31. The lighter blue w/blk buckets, 4sp. The original owner drove it in winter, and it didn't take long for the rust be hide all 4 tires. Other than that, it was babied, and for $750, with only 54k mi...man, what a nice car. Neighbor- word of mouth, good deal.
