Larry Speicher’s rare Oldsmobile Cutlass S is one of only 508 Ram Rod 350 W31s built-in 1968. Painted in Provincial White with Garnet bucket seat interior as a salute to his favorite, the 1953 Corvette. He saved over $2500 from 8 summers of work. His dad put in the final $1800 for an academic performance reward. Larry ordered this beauty on 2/15/68 & took delivery 4/19/68, at age 17. It features the potent, high-revving select fit Outside Air Induction W31 engine. Making 325hp at 5800rpm, Olds built the W31 from 1968 to 1970, with a total production of about 2800 vehicles. Larry’s car is optioned with M21 Muncie 4-speed & a rare 4.33 Off-Road Posi axle. In the quarter-mile, it turned 13.5-sec runs. Today, fewer than 20 of these cars still exist in running condition. Larry is one of only 3 original-ordered W31 owners.
