Default Ryan Weaver's 1969 Olds Cutlass S W31 Club Coupe

OMG

"PeteLeathersac" here on sYc gave me a tip on a local car...........NOT A CHEVELLE!!!!!

Thanks "Pete" this came about mid meek and by mid day today my new car was in my garage. (My head is still spinning........)

I am now the proud owner of a Barn Find/Project:

The colour is 57-57 Glade Green

The interior is 930 Blak Strato Bucket Seats, no console:-)

The hood stripes were 10 Ebony Black back in day

The options are:

W84: Aditional Fuel for delivery
Y73: Appearance option, Hood special paint.

The options are very cool, but that is just the beginning..........This car was purchased new locally and I became the second owner at noon today!!!!!!!!

The original owner and I are now best friends!!

The OO and his wife, daughter, and granddaughter all welcomed me to their home and sent me away with a car I will cherish. (I will check if they are willing to go public or stay private soon)

The OO sat down with the order/option book at the local dealer and ordered this car exactly as you see it here, he wanted a sleeper and even tried really hard to delete the hood stripes but was unable to. They had the car oiled and drove it one full year including winter, then for four summers he drove it(he used winter beaters to protect his W31). The car has been in his garage or storage facility literally since 1974ish.

The OO put a "Kicker Clutch" in it as well as a short straight handle on the Hurst shifter, he smiled from ear to ear as he explained how he could floor it, and pull on the shifter between gears, and KICK the clutch for a half a heartbeat to change gears:-)

He took it to a local track at least once for time trials and his times were approx 14.2 seconds. He also put air shocks in the back and says they still hold air.

He put a Dixco(sp?)tach on the hood back in the day as he didn't want the tach from Olds as he said it was inside the clock, he called it a "tick tach". He only drilled the one hole, he didn't need to drill the extra holes for screws:-)

When we went inside to write up a bill of sale today the family provided me with enough documentation to choke a Canadian horse!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bill of sale, POP, warranty booklet, and on and on, and on!!!!!

I am so excited to have found this car very close to home and plan to keep the family up to speed on the progress as this old girl comes back from hibernation to the road. This really is a dream come true for me, and I plan to enjoy my new car as we (Father and Son) repair and restore and bring her back to driver condition. During agonizing over this car a few nights ago my son asked if he could help work on the car........(tear)......he tipped the scales with Momma!!!!!!!!

So I guess I am an Oldsmo-vrolet guy now..........and proud of it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ryan

PS - LOTS more pics to come!
