The mastersathletics.net site which Ken previewed on his blog a day or two ago seems pretty promising for what you seek.

Best all-around place to find American masters records is USATF at:
http://www.usatf.org/statistics/records/

World marks are another booger all together.

A good place to start is my site:
http://www.masterstrack.com/records.html

However, be acutely aware that listed records (on official sites) are notoriously inaccurate.

I've posted dozens of rants on the subject.

Sample critiques:

This is the subject of a proposal I have requested agenda time for at the upcoming National Meeting. I would like to make an official unified effort to track down the old results and post them for posterity in a readable fashion on the USATF Masters site. I'd propose the same thing to WMA, but that has to pass through others. I'd like to go down to the Association level (officially) and it would be nice to include other meets, particularly marks of significance, back as long as masters have run.

If you have any old results or information that is not already on line, please send it to me. info@trackinfo.org Several other people are apparently working on similar aspects of this sort of project. Duplicating of information on the web is good, though obviously duplicating of effort is a waste of time. Lets talk.
