YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Oldsmo...cAAOSwPw5dfajQ

It is so rare to actually see one of these in really good shape and well detailed. I've been in love with these cars since I first saw one as a kid. Just have a thing for small block musclecars I guess.

I wonder if they'd trade me for the wagon.....

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

Very cool. My first car was a 1971 Cutlass 'S'. Not exactly a muscle car with a 350 2bbl and 2.56 gears, but it was still a great car. Did great one wheel burnouts, once you got that tire spinning with those tall gears it would spin forever. I've always had a soft spot for the Olds A bodies.

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

I'd like it better as a 4 speed. In some circles the car is rare, to me its really just a yellow Cutlass with an OAI and a wing. This particular restoration has some issues with attention to detail.

You're just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

So what if it's not a Chevy?


I've been longing for a 70-72 Cutlass/442 for some time now. Nearly had my hands on a survivor '72 442 a few years back, but the seller wanted cold hard cash. Couldn't do it (credit union doesnt actually give out cash except from ATMs!).

Or, I could also go for a '67-69 Cougar (XR7 preferably). If only I had the space!

I stumbled onto a 1970 Olds Rallye 350 4 speed post car the other day. It’s rough but all there in pieces with matching numbers driveline. It’s for sale but he wants me to make him an offer. What do you think?

I'd be at $8k all day.

Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.

Too bad it's a post carÖ That would be enough for me to pass on it.

Steve the one you stumbled on has a lot of rust in the lower rear quarter, I'd look real good under there and the frame, WIW? I don't have a clue

To me its a $3-5k car considering its condition and what it will take to restore it. Being a post and 4spd makes it more attractive to me.

Re: YUM! 1970 Olds Rallye 350

Last year I picked up one up on ebay with a 4 speed. I ended up selling earlier this year due to loss of storage. It was a pretty nice original car. 350/310 ram air.. M-21 4 speed.. 3.91 posi.. buckets .. console.. You can't keep them all..

and a few Pontiacs..

What! Why don't you like post cars. Fewer were made, don't see one every day, well i see one every day, but you don't see them often. They are stiffer than a non post car, good for drag racing, autocross. I would like to see this one restored. Terry

Terry, it's not that I "don't like" themÖ There's nothing wrong with them but it's just that I prefer the looks of a hardtop, especially when you put all 4 windows down. Post cars might be rarer but I'm not a collector so it might be a priority for some people but not for me. Also, an Oldsmobile is more a "higher end" car than a Chevrolet and having a post kinda takes away that "high end" look (at least to me). As for the manual transmission, I don't have anything against it but I'm old and prefer putting the car in "D" and enjoy driving the car and the scenery!. Öbut I agree with you that post or not, it deserves to be restored.
