Oldsmobile Rally 350
To fight the tightening regulations that were destroying the muscle car class, Oldsmobile introduced a bright yellow Rally 350 model. It was a clever way to avoid high insurance premiums with those smaller yet still powerful 350 V8 engines producing 310 HP. This model was basically a 442 muscle car with a smaller engine and a lower price.
The most interesting feature was the bright yellow paint. It had bright yellow bumpers, spoilers and wheel inserts. It looked like somebody dropped the Oldsmobile Cutlass in a tank of bright yellow paint. Other manufacturers introduced similar models, but this Oldsmobile is best known due to its unmistakable appearance.
However, the Rally 350 wasn’t a big success on the market despite the clever engineering. So, they built only 3,547 examples in 1970. Although most Oldsmobile performance cars are well-known among car enthusiasts, most have forgotten the Rally 350, so it is rare today.
