• For me, its the Cyclone. The Olds has too many red flags: modified interior, bad panel fit, rear damage, and those wheels. The Buick is nice and as-original, but a bit dull. The Cyclone has some snap, and the mods are either acceptable, or easily reversed (I am on the fence about the wheels, they are borderline for me). Oh, and I guess I have to admit that I am a Ford Guy…..

  • It looks like the Buick is the one that's neither beat up nor idiot owned. The Olds engine is supposed to be painted gold, and a 1967 has the THM 400 with variable-pitch stator for better acceleration. The engine looks Olds-like enough that I doubt they really put a powerglide in there. The Cyclone looks like it got painted last week and what the heck would you put painters tape on the brake pedal for? I think my brains say buy the Buick if I gotta pick one, and save up for a less-degraded muscle car.

  • I agree with Bovinity on the Olds, lots of things seem not quite right. The Cyclone is interesting because you don't see too may of them, but the wheels would have to go. The Buick looks clean but the color isn't doing the car any favors. Tough call.

  • the Cyclone, hands down. the design aged way better than the others, I like the big block. the bad paint job and the ugly wheels are easy fixes.

    • Bad paint jobs are risky. A good paint job exposes bad work, but a bad paint job hides bad work. Assume the body needs a lot more work than you see.

  • The Buick seems to be the least futzed with. I'm betting the Olds and the Merc both have a lot of unseen 'modificaitons' and stories to tell. But given a budget of 15k, I think you can do better than all 3 of these. Patience, Grasshopper. Keep looking, and be willing to travel.

  • 67 Olds 442 could be a clone i believe it should have a factory louvered hood then it may be a replacement also. Worst Foose wheel ever…!

  • I am in the Buick camp unmolested great factory wheels the Mercury is maybe the rarest but hate the painted motor and rear bumper (same as body) 351 Cleveland ? fast and thirsty.
