There's just something great about the 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Supreme convertible. They have one of the best designs of the era
from a GM division that provided both speed and luxury. So this
complete and feature-filled droptop has everything from cold A/c to
its original Rocket 350 under the hood.
The paint on this car serves it perfectly. A professional application of Aquamarine gives it a level of clearcoat gloss and shine that the factory never could. But the regal blue hue still stays under the radar with elegance instead of in-your-face bravado. The sheetmetal underneath is quite solid and straight, with uniform gaps and doors that you can close with authority. All of this allows you to enjoy the unique look that the Cutlass has among its GM corporate cousins. The dual white stripes help highlight what is already a very sporty-looking car. Those lines not only highlight the extra curves on the hood and trunk, but also they're a great match for when the white folding top is in place. Plenty of chrome is appropriate on the luxury-oriented Olds, and it all shines to the same level as this upgraded paintwork. These themes of brightwork and sportiness are unified perfectly on the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with an aggressive 17/18-inch stagger front/rear.
Beneath the white folding top is a white interior, so you get the great color-coordination with the exterior no matter if the roof is on or off. This was an upgrade to this color, and so the seats and the door panels were recently upgraded. And it feels like the carpets and dash were updated to match the freshness. These might have been classified as the intermediate size, but back then, that meant offering plenty of room for up to six people in this Olds. And any time you want individual comfort, the folding armrest gives the front bench a bucket seat level of comfort. Oldsmobiles were about offering the a luxurious feeling, and this one carries that tradition perfectly. The burled walnut dash appliqu�s and the three pod-style stainless steel gauge faces were all standard Cutlass fare. And you can even stay cool while looking cool thanks to the factory air conditioning. Plus, there's been an upgrade to an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo to make sure you can always cruise with the top down to your favorite tunes.
Oldsmobile people know that a Rocket 350 cubic-inch motor is something very special. So you'll be very happy to see that this is the original numbers-matching V8. It looks great with its proper gold presentation, and it even carries the cool "Keep your GM car all GM" decal on the Rocket air topper. Olds manufactured their own V8 engines during this era, and they have proven to be even more sturdy than the trusty Chevy 350. Plus, there's plenty of power from the Holley four-barrel carb topping this V8. It has a distinctive sound from the dual exhaust - a sophisticated rumble that's perfect for this ragtop's luxury/muscle dual nature. In fact, this one is a definite cruiser thanks to features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission. So as much as you might want to take this Cutlass to a car show, it has all the right features for an all-day Sunday drive, too.
Complete with the owner's manual, there were less than 8,000 Cutlass convertible produced in the iconic year of 1970. And while the number gets fewer every day, it's even rarer when they are this well presented - especially with its original V8. So it's time to get your hands on this turnkey Cutlass droptop before someone else snatches up this ultimate all-season cruiser. Call today!!!
