Classic Car Overview

"What kind of car is that?" If I only had a dime for every time I heard that question. It is an OldsJetfireSpitfordmobile. I've owned the car since 1976. The body and chassis are solid, (not a rust bucket) but it is a conglomeration of automotive history. The engine is from a 1963 Oldsmobile F85 Jetfire. Oldsmobile experimented with mass production turbocharging in 1962 and in this Spitfire is one of the turbocharged aluminum V8 engines. Although the engine in the Spitfire remained turbocharged for about seven years, I decided to remove the turbo system in favor of a four barrel carb. Why....? One word; HEAT. The cast iron manifolds and turbo compressor, (the compressor was positioned on top of the engine) produced and retained so much heat it could boil brake fluid.  The power from the rebuilt V8 to the drive train is via a five speed Mustang transmission. To allow the Spitfire to be a daily driver, the front suspension parts and uprights are from a Triumph GT6, the large aluminum radiator is from Griffin, Rewarder custom headers, Mini-Lite wheels and the brake calipers are Nissan. The car is currently driven only about once a month and is always stored indoors. The paint is DuPont's Chrome Illusion, (color is Jade Perfection) and shows dramatic color changes in various lighting conditions.
