A jurry-rigged piece of shit you should avoid.
It's a Pontiac with an Oldsmobile engine. The term "rocket" means nothing in
all reality. Just a marketing term for the most part.
My 307 in my Delta 88 is of "rocket heritage" too, but it ain't no rocket with
140 hp. LOL.
It shares many parts with other Olds V8s of bigger fame :).

All Olds Engines are "Rocket" Engines, even the Quad-4. The name comes
from the 50's. Any idiot that tells you a Olds 350 and a olds 350 Rocket
(with gold valve covers) is a different engine, is just an Idiot. A spray
bomb of gold paint, and they are all "Gold Top Rockets"
so there is nothing mechanical thats difference at all? I'm not buying the
car, just was wondering what it was a "rocket" I've heard of "rockets"
before, was just courius is all, thanks for the heads up on it guys
Some of the late 60's erly 70's cars probably had different parts to
them. Such as valve train, cams, pistons. Some Hevy Duty blocks. Yet any
olds motor is a rocket. Heck the Olds 350 Diesel blocks have better
cranks, and a hevy duty block. Change the pistons, & heads. Then you have a
high out put gasoline olds 350 that will take higher stresses.
