Default SS Drag Olds Vista Cruiser & 442

Buddy of mine bought this Olds SS Grand Vista Wagon. In the deal, he also got this 442 from the same guy. Pretty cool!!! He mentioned restoring the 442. I practically got on my knees begging him to leave it alone and do what it needs to get it running.

Are the Sports Coupe pictures all the same car?

Cutlass S, or F85, or 442?

Talking Jim Waibel!!!

Looks like Jim Waibel might have had a hand in the sport coupe at least. If he did, you might have a car with some serious drag race history. Waibel was certainly legendary when it came to Olds power. Search Jim Waibel Competition (Lakeland, Florida) on the net. His son Jeremy has a Facebook page on him and his cars: https://www.facebook.com/Jim-Waibel-...6721702642739/

I think it is an F85 W31.... no B80 trim and the fender badge looks more like and F85 than Cutlass script.
