In 1966 Oldsmobile built 54 cars known as W-30's to be certified by NHRA to run in Stock Classes at NHRA sanctioned events. The NHRA allowed the cars but required that Oldsmobile provide them with the serial numbers and names of the purchasers of each car to be sure the requirement of 50 cars were sold and delivered in order to comply with NHRA Rules. The majority of the cars were sold to known drag racers. In June of 66 Olds built the 54 cars in the Lansing Michigan plant.
Most were stripped models with no radios, some without heaters and all had the 466 gear rear end, Made for one thing - GO FAST in a straight line for 1/4 mile. They were sucessful as they won the C Stock Class in 66 and 67 over Chevrolet, Pontiac, Ford and Mopar. The cars had the special Shroud over 3 two barrel carburetors with ram air hoses routed through the bumper. Close ratio 4 speed in all cars with the battery located relocated to the trunk. Each car was numbered and this is certified as car #34. It is an F-85 442.
