At twenty years young, this front drive family sedan isn't going to impress the Allard crowd at next year's Monterey Historics, or even get through the parking gate of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It will, however, be gladly welcomed at smaller 'historic' gatherings, track days, and could even qualify for the 24 Hours of LeMons with an appropriate level of judicial bribery...not the local traffic court envelope of $20s, but we are talking supreme court sized briefcases full of cash.
This Achieva (pictured above) is said to have raced in the Firehawk series and later IMSA events, but now wears SCCA ITS badges and is likely a decent weekend track rat. It is powered by a GM Quad-4 engine of undisclosed build specs - but probably makes about 200 horsepower by our estimation.
It's got a standard race-car interior, complete with cage, race seat, quick-release steering wheel, halo fire extinguishing system, diamond plate floor panels and a bevy of aftermarket gauges.
This Olds isn't a bad way to get into racing and would certainly cost more than the current bidding price to build your own.
