Question by Tim R: 1970 Olds Delta 88 questions?
Hi all. Can anyone fill me in a bit more on this car? I know it has the 350 Rocket engine. That is a 2 barrel carb, yes? Also, what about the transmission and rear end? I read somewhere thy have a dana 12 bolt rear end and a turbo 400 trans. I am sorry, I am not really that knowledgeable about cars. This is a 2 door hardtop. Are they considered good engines, etc? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Thanks for the info so far!

I doubt anyone ever memorized the specs of an olds delta 88. I will say this though. If that car is still running with the original motor, apparently it was one helluva good motor, at least the one made that day at the factory.
Olds delta 88 rocket engine is an oxymoron. I’m pretty sure that car was a tank & it would take a real rocket motor to get any performance out of it. I learned to drive in the 70’s so I’m vaguely familiar with that era. I don’t remember anyone hopping up a Delta 88 as a hot rod. I do remember a few pintos being hopped up though. Go figure. Stupid high school kids will hop up anything.
