1968 Oldsmobile 442 Roadster Shop Chassis, LS Engine, and Tremec TKX install at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This cool yellow 1968 Oldsmobile 442 looks great, but the owner wanted better handling, braking, and comfort, while adding more reliable power and a smoother shifting transmission to the car without sacrificing the classic look. The solution is the installation of at Roadster Shop chassis and an LS3 V8, hooked to a Tremec TKX 5-speed manual transmission. Follow along as we make the upgrades!

The 775 HP LT5 will be backed by a 10-speed automatic transmission, so it’s sure to be firmly planted in the engine’s powerband all the time. It’s going to be a whole new experience in a muscle car!
