We were looking at this gem the next town over for Phyllis


And this was next to it. 1978-81 Cutlass wagon from down south. Never seen snow, The guy wants $600. Not sure of milage. It has a small v8. I think it is like a 262 or something. I had one with the same engine years ago.

Then it might be a 281 or something. I had a 262 in a malibu sedan, that is why I am thinking of that number.

If memory serves me, it was a buick or olds small V8 engine. It was like 4.7 or something. Not a 5.0 305, 307.

If it's a V8, it's an Olds 260.

Pontiacs had the 301 around then, and an even smaller 265. I would be surprised if the engines were made more than 3 years, lol.

Chevys had something like a 4.4 V8 back then too.

Something I never knew about those wagons until recently, the windows in the rear doors don't roll down! You gotta open the stupid little vent window!

Did that car run? Know anything else about it? Very Happy If it's from the south, I'm guessing the frame rails didn't rot out...

Cutlass sedans from the 80's can't roll down the rear windows either.

For $600 who cares what engine is in it?

You could drop in a TBI (> sliced bread) for cheap. Smile


Would that car have the "Camaro" wheel bolt pattern?

And which one are you going to buy?

Yes, but don't try to install rear IROC wheels. They hit the frame. Ask me how I know. I just now thought "why I did not try the rears on the front?"

You got it home already and started modding? Smile

I don't quite get it, is the frame rotted?

I did not buy this car. I was refering to one I had 20 years ago or so. According to the guy who owns it, there is rot on the frame at the very rear of the pass side.

Guy I was talking to once said he worked in a spring or welding shop or something, and they did frame rail replacements on dozens of those cars back in the 80s. Laughing
