By our count, Oldsmobile made around 700,000 Aleros.

But there will only be one SUPERBalero!

OnAllCylinders’ first-ever project build, the SUPERBalero was born from a recent post about the top vehicle brands our readers would like to resurrect. You rightly included Plymouth and Oldsmobile on the list, and the idea was hatched: a project vehicle that brought together distinctive elements from both.

A SUPERBalero.

Our project will take one of Oldsmobile’s best-ever rides (perhaps next to the 4-4-2, Cutlass, and a few others), the Alero, and add just the right amount of styling cues from Plymouth‘s famous Superbird. Highlights include:


3.5L DOHC V6
Twin Turbochargers
NOS EFI Nitrous System
NOS Nitrous Controller
Airaid Cold Air Intake
COMP Cams Xtreme Energy Camshafts
Custom Patriot Exhaust Sidepipes


Ground Force 2-Inch Suspension Lowering Kit
NASCAR-style Front and Rear Anti-Sway Bars
Baer Brakes Disc Brake Upgrade Kit

Paint and Body

Custom Plymouth Superbird-style Nose
Plymouth Superbird Rear Spoiler Narrowed to Fit Deck Lid
Plum Crazy Paint with Panther Pink Flames
Custom Vinyl OnAllCylinders Graphics
Gila Film Products Window Tint Kit
Street Glow Neon Underbody Kit


Cragar Unique Series 83 Wheels
Goodyear Eagle GT Tires


Summit Racing Seats
Custom dash pod with Auto Meter Sport-Comp Digital Gauges

You can look for the OnAllCylinders SUPERBalero on the Goodguys tour, Summit Racing Equipment Show Car Series, and maybe even at a dragstrip near you—but you won’t find it. Happy April Fools Day!
