I finally (last May) found an 87 Salon, on eBay, in Franklin, Kentucky for a cool grand. Drove up there and hauled it back to Tennessee. Drove it for a while, and have put it up, collecting various parts. It has the same 307 the 84 had......same color, same package (though in 87 it was a Salon, not Calais--since Olds had made the smaller front wheel drive the Calais)..basically the 442 options minus the stripe package and the subtle performance changes. Put a set of Olds ralleys on it, and some new Yoko's....am building a 1966 Olds 330 (factory 10.25:1 comp.) that I picked up in Rock Hill, SC (from eBay). Had the machine work done on the block...bored .040" over, Egge pistons, Mondello/Comp Cams internals, Engles cam.....and a guy at work is doing the Mondello inspired port and head work for me. I am looking (I think) at around 385 horse for the package. Bought a built 200r4 from Kozek in Kentucky, with a Grand National torque converter, and am looking at a Strange rear for it. I think it will be fun ripping the factory peg-leg 7.5" rear out of this thing, when together! Suspension is going to be a major factor in the build.

Nice sounds like a good setup you have planned. Can't wait to see the finished product.
