1970 Oldsmobile Rallye 350

When it came to horsepower ratings, Detroit had reached the summit in 1970 and insurance companies had wised up to the race ready muscle cars coming out of Detroit. For their services they charged more for Muscle Cars.

In response Detroit began offering what could be called "junior" muscle cars. The Oldsmobile Rallye 350 was a Junior Muscle Car and it was introduced on February 18, 1970. Oldsmobile built 3,547 copies of the Rallye 350.
