Oldsmobile Rally 350
In an attempt to fight the tightening regulations that were destroying the muscle car class, Oldsmobile introduced the bright yellow Rally 350 model. It was a clever way to avoid high insurance premiums with a smaller but still powerful 350 V8 engine 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 along with the yellow bumpers, spoiler and wheel inserts. It looked like somebody dropped the Oldsmobile Cutlass in a tank of bold 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 its clever engineering. Also, they only built 3,547 examples in 1970. Although most Oldsmobile performance cars are well-known among car enthusiasts, they forgot about the Rally 350 so it is rarely seen today.
