The interior was from long ago, and still relatively good shape. The owner and I spent many hours cleaning/rejuvenating the upholstery to save the cool looking survivor pieces. I loved how well the back door "disappears" with that simple touch, of removing the handle. all that chrome trim helps as well.

55 Olds Delta
Oldsmobile took a rocket, flipped it around, and created a stunning dream car that is often overlooked. The smooth rear end of the Delta carried the profile of a rocket, but the relatively flat, forward-leaning front end was designed as an air intake between an exaggerated form of Oldsmobile’s contemporary “headlamp over parking lamp” theme.

Open fenders around the wheels with plated fender backings gave the car an airy and future feel, while the rounded roof of brushed aluminum added an aeronautical element. Its busy and bright wheel covers were straight off the buttons of a robot, yet complemented the clean design of the Delta.

We doubt anyone has followed up on the fate of this concept car, which probably landed in a Detroit-area salvage yard and then, oblivion.

A four-passenger close-coupled coupe just fifty-three inches high, mounted on a 120 inch wheelbase similar to that of the production 88. The Delta was designed to consider new materials and design features, many of which are taken for granted today: dual fuel tanks in the rear fenders, cast-aluminum wheels, anodized aluminum trim, a center console for radio controls and extra storage. Styling was strictly Harley Earl, very rounded with the dipped beltline that would permeate the GM line by 1957-58, and the car was two tones of metallic blue.

Olds Mystery Hemi
Back in the late '60s and early '70s, the Big Three were all heavily immersed in experimenting with all kinds of different engine concepts. This was the era of wild theories that sometimes led to full production pieces. For example, Olds built a very small 215ci all-aluminum V-8 engine and turbocharged it with 10.5:1 compression, requiring the use of a 50/50 blend of methanol and water the company called Turbo Rocket Fluid. (They should have called it Rocket Fuel!) Chevy dabbled with the turbocharged flat six in the Corvair, and Ford bolted a blow-through McCulloch supercharger (granddaddy of the Paxton supercharger) on the Y-block 312ci V-8 engine in the '57 Thunderbird. By the mid- to late '60s, Ford blitzed the performance world with the Single Over Head Cam (SOHC) 427 engine and tried to get it past NASCAR, but Bill France Sr. didn't bite. Chrysler fabbed up a single DOHC head for development as a response to Ford's Cammer, but it never made it out of the back room, although there are rumors that pieces still exist. Oldsmobile was also neck-deep in the experimental engine sandbox, which leads us to the photos we found in the CC archives. We haven't been able to dig up much on this engine other than it appears to be a pentroof-style chamber with centrally located spark plugs and four valves per cylinder. That's about as much as we know. We encourage you to enlighten us, but be prepared to reveal your sources. We'd really like to hear from someone in Olds engineering who worked on this engine. That would be cool.

Tom, the Olds experimental engines were featured in detail in the 1971 issue of Petersen's "The Complete Book Of Engines". Might have been in Hot Rod too in the late '70, early '71 time frame, I don't have an extensive HRM library to check. As is seen here there was a cammer too, with Webers and some long tube headers. The combustion chambers were pent roof, like an Offenhauser, four valve with a centrally located spark plug.

Eight pages in the article, if there is any interest I could scan the whole thing.

56 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket.
If it weren’t for the wheels and tires, Oldsmobile’s 1956 Golden Rocket might look as though it were a rocket plucked straight from under the wing of a F-94 jet plane and given the plane’s cockpit cover.

No other ’50s dream car took the jet-age theme more seriously than the Golden Rocket. Its three-point nose, rocket-tip rear bumper caps and rounded side panels to tie the front and back together made the Golden Rocket look like, well, a rocket with wheels. There was even a lateral fin on the rear deck for good measure.

While the nose was smooth for good air stream, there was a vent located in the center prow, flanked by projectiles at the tips of the pointed front fenders. As though more jet-age inspiration were necessary, several cockpit controls were placed in the center of the steering wheel. A central console that began on the instrument panel and extended to the console was not unlike that found in today’s cars, but the lift-up roof panels for easy entry and egress were very much a jet-age feature of the Golden Rocket.

The metallic gold Golden Rocket was promoted as a “glittering new experimental car by Oldsmobile,” but the shine soon wore off. Exactly where this car landed after the 1956 Motorama season is anyone’s guess.

The rear window area looks like a 63 Vettes.

The 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket Concept, a gold colored 2 passenger car, which was styled to resemble a rocket, made its debut at the 1956 General Motors Motorama and was used at many other auto shows.

The Rocket had a fiberglass body with nerf-like built in bumpers that give an overall rocket effect. It was powered with a 234 CID, 275 horsepower Rocket V8 engine and weighs 2,500 pounds.

The upholstery was done in blue and gold leather. The speedometer was mounted in the center of the two-spoked steering wheel along with buttons to tilt the wheel, making it one of the first vehicles with a tilt steering wheel.

As either door was opened, the roof panel automatically raised and the seat came up 3 inches and swiveled outward for easy entry or exit.

The Golden Rocket was revised several times and stayed on the show circuit for several years.

Bill Bowman - wiki.gmnext.com


The 1956 Oldsmobile Golden Rocket featured a seating system in which a roof panel was raised and the seat was elevated and rotated toward the entering occupant when the door was opened. Buttons on the steering wheel allowed the column to tilt downward, providing the driver with easier access.

www.gmphotostore.com


A wild-looking bronze-metallic two-seat coupe was the most projectile-like Olds show car, and one of the quickest: Its 234 V-8 was tuned to produce 275 hp, which must have been impressive considering its curb weight of about 2,500 pounds. Like most of its predecessors, the Rocket had a fiberglass body. Roof panels rose, resembling Mercedes’ gullwing-style, and the seats lifted and swiveled out to welcome the posterior when the doors were opened. Conventional bumpers were replaced by nerf-like built-in bumpers, and one of the first-known tilt steering wheels was in the cockpit.

1953 Oldsmobile Starfire X-P Rocket
Oldsmobile didn’t deny its experimental Starfire was a product of its generation, or the influence of its design features. The car was named for the U.S. Air Force’s Lockheed F-94 Starfire jet plane, although aside from the bubbled headlamp covers that mimicked the rockets carried by the F-94, the Oldsmobile Starfire shared little exterior design with the F-94. Fortunately, the design maintained the best parts of Oldsmobile and served as a bridge from its early 1950s to mid-1950s designs. Its open-mouth grille, delicate side trim, “Darrin dip” beltline and rocket-tipped tail lamps jutting off the rear the fenders were just a few of the features that made Oldsmobile tops in the 1950s.

Olds is reported to have built as many as three of these four-seat Starfires for 1953, but from what we understand, all that remains is a single front seat.

Hard to believe an Oldsmobile has won the Riddler award. Although other than the outer skin not much is Oldsmobile. It is a fine looking car with plenty of good to look at. That got me to thinking (dangerous I know me thinking)! I have owned and driven a lot of recently abandoned car manufacturers, such as Pontiac. Oldsmobile of course, Mercury, Plymouth, International. Maybe I have an idea for a new thread here on Hot Rod Craft.  Joe

The late '80s weren't the best era for Olds, but that's no reason to ignore the 1987 Oldsmobile Aerotech concept, one of the more interesting race-inspired concepts from the '80s.


Oh, and it once hit a flying mile record of 267 mph. Not your father's Oldsmobile indeed.


How did such a crazy-looking car come from Oldsmobile of all the brands in the GM portfolio? It starts in the mid-'80s with the development of the Olds Quad-4 engine, a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine whose 150 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque rivaled a lot of V6 engines in its day.


As Automobile tells it, certain people at GM saw a ton of potential in the Quad-4 motor, and they decided to prove it in the most ostentatious way possible: breakin' speed records! They tapped Ed Welburn, an endurance racing fan and then the assistant chief designer in the Oldsmobile studio (and today Vice President of GM Design North America) to design a sleek body that could hit the speeds they sought.



But not just any normal human being can pilot a car designed to break speed records. You need someone with unassailable skill behind the wheel, someone with huge brass balls. Someone from Texas, preferably.

How does A.J. Foyt sound?


What was it? An experimental high-speed vehicle built for the purpose of breaking speed records.

What were the specs? The Quad-4 was good, but you're not gonna hit unfathomable speeds with that puny engine. Power was added by turbo-ing the living crap out of it. The GM Heritage Center says there were two Quad-4 engines used in the Aerotech I: a single-turbo version with 900 horsepower and a twin-turbo version with 1,000 horsepower.

As for the car itself, if it looks like a race car, that's because it started life as one. The chassis came from a modified March 84C CART racer used to win the Indianapolis 500 that year, and the body was made of carbon fiber. Three versions were built: one with a long tail and two with a shorter tail.

What else made it special? It takes more than just power when you're gunning for speed records. The Aerotech I also had adjustable underbody panels that could control the distribution of downforce from front to rear. It was also one of the most aerodynamic vehicles ever designed


What did it look like on the inside? AMAZING. The Aerotech was designed to be more like an F16 fighter jet cockpit than a car, so it featured digital instrument screens and a transparent HUD in front of the driver. As Car Design News put it in their recent story, "This was a car to be piloted, not merely driven."

Did it actually run? Oh ho ho. You better believe it did.

In late August 1987 the Aerotech team headed to a 7.712-mile test track near Fort Stockton, Texas and broke multiple speed records, several of which remain unbroken today. Outright Olds sums them all up best:

Foyt broke the old closed course mark, held by a Mercedes-Benz streamliner since 1979, with a speed of 257.123 miles per hour in a "short-tail" Aerotech. And while he was at it, erased the 2-liter class world flying-mile record, set by Phil Hill in an MG streamliner in 1959, with a two-way average of 267.399 in a "long-tail" car; on one leg of the run, Foyt's Aerotech was timed at 278.357 mph.

In the straights, Foyt went as high as 290 mph. Clearly, the cars got the job done.

Was it ever planned for production? Doubtful. The cars were always meant to be high-speed record breakers, not precursors to street cars. The Quad-4 did see duty in various Pontiac, Buick and Olds cars, but clearly not with the kind of insane power seen here.


Should it have been produced? How? As some kind of supercar? Perhaps, but that was probably quite unlikely. The Aerotech later inspired several other more realistic concept cars with that name, one of which previewed the 1990 Cutlass Supreme.

And then in 1992, Oldsmobile came back to Fort Stockton with a new version of the Aerotech, this time packing a 4.0 liter Oldsmobile Aurora V8. It broke 47 endurance speed records over eight days.

All of the cars were used extensively in Oldsmobile PR ventures for years. It wasn't enough to save the brand, or convince young people that they made exciting cars for the street, but the Aerotechs remain highly influential and notable for the ludicrous speeds they achieved.

That was a great time in Oldsmobile history. Thanks oldjoe. I owned three Cutlasses, an 1988 Pacecar then a 97 & a 96. Unfortunately the 88 took a high speed rear end hit from a drunk driver.  >:( Our TA/FC was also the same body style and was the last GM sponsored Olds (GM Goodwrench, Olds & AC Delco), due to being a Canadian car, 1 year later than NHRA switching to Pontiac sponsorship. I'll dig up some photos soon.

This is the "Oldsmobile" I crewed on in the late 90's. Possibly the last Olds sponsored car in the world, since NHRA switched to Pontiac but being a Canadian car we still had Goodwrench, Olds and AC Delco for another year, then GM pulled the plug on the oldest car maker in America. :(
