The Olds was the F-85.  There are a couple of these (Buick, Olds) at
Bob's Wrecking in Milan, OH with engines and automatic trannies.
A mixed bag--one is almost complete, another is missing manifolds and
alternator, but has the starter.  Bob's has American iron (with a
smattering of British) back to the 50's, and is reasonably well-organized
as yards go.  Summer is not the best time to visit, since finding the
cars under all the prickly weeds and cockleburrs is a chore.
