1968 Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Engine Photos and Press Releases

PR photos were sent to all automotive journalists, newspapers, magazines and any other media for use in any articles contemplated.

The  W-30 engine photo is is one heck of an impressive shot! It was so awesome that the picture was repeated for 1969, though in that year the scoop brackets were not removed as they are here, perhaps in repsonse to "truth in advertising" issues.

This dramatic shot put the W-30 on the PR map in 1968. It was featured in almost every single car magazine. What a PR scoop!

The photos are high resolution and if copied to glossy photo paper will represent like the original.
