Success in a crowded market grew by leaps and bounds when Olds mid-size lineup received a major restyling for 1968 and two chassis lengths a shorter 112-inch wheelbase for two-door models and 116 inches for four-doors and wagons. The new design was particularly attractive on the two-doors, with the sleek, aircraft fuselage-inspired styling continued through 1972. While a six-cylinder engine was still standard on the F-85/Cutlass for 1968, most buyers opted for Olds Rocket V-8 engine, available as a high-torque Turnpike Cruiser 2-barrel unit or with 4-barrel carburetion. GMs new Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission was a popular option, with an available console-mounted floor shifter. The Cutlass S offered upscale trim and upholstery for a great combination of sportiness and luxury on the Holiday Hardtop Coupe, pillared Coupe, and sleek Convertible. Today, while the 1968-72 models are very popular with collectors for their style, drivability, and noticeably better build quality than many other cars of the era, the first-year 1968 models are relatively rare in the classic-vehicle marketplace. Simply gorgeous from top to bottom, this Cutlass S Convertible is a virtually impeccable example of Oldsmobiles upscale mid-size models for 1968. Finished in Red over a Black interior with front bucket seats, highlights include a Black power-operated convertible top, center console, AM radio, and three-spoke steering wheel. Highlights specific to the S include twin hood louvers, unique badging and trim, and upgraded interior appointments. A 4-barrel 350 CI Rocket V-8 engine and floor-shifted Hydramatic 3-speed automatic transmission deliver plenty of power for easy cruising, along with power brakes and power steering for a great drive whether the top is up or down. Detailing is excellent throughout the car, including the engine, underhood area, undercarriage, and trunk, consistent with proper care and maintenance. Seat belts and a fully equipped trunk including a mounted spare, roadside jack, and floor mat are all in place.
