For Sale: 1963 Oldsmobile Cutlass in Concord, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

This 1963 Oldsmobile Cutlass F-85 Deluxe convertible represents a distinct era in all the best ways. An interesting design, unibody construction, and a V8 that would become the toast of Europe. So to have this all presented so authentically (right down to likely the original motor) is quite a nice treat at quite a nice price.

The blue on this car looks like a sunny day sky, and the bright white convertible top is a puffy cloud. It's a color combo that follows close to the original, but with a respray along the way to look quite nice in the sunshine. Plus, you have the complete brightwork package. They really loved to make these elements as long and as possible. That's why the bumpers have an extended wraparound; the hood ornament runs the full length of the front; and the sweeping side trim starts just after the headlights and runs uninterrupted to the taillights. Even the factory wheel covers are in place. It's a true time capsule convertible in all the best ways.

If you like the way the white top looks against the blue, then with a flip of a switch, you'll love powering the roof down to reveal the white interior. The seats have seen investments over the years, so they feel fresher. You get the individual comfort of bucket seats, and the rear even has real legroom (not something you'd find on today's compacts!) The classic style means an artful dashboard that houses a long speedometer, bright knobs, and even the original AM radio that's still there for display. A slender gearshift lever hangs from the steering column, and the factory dual-spoke steering wheel has a cool jet-age look.

Under the hood, the bold red air topper and shining silver components draw you into the special motor. This was the last year of the alloy 215 cubic-inch V8, and this even comes with a plaque claiming this was the last off the line! So it's great to have what's believed to be the original motor still in the engine bay. And the way it runs really reaffirms the feeling of quality care. Topped with a four-barrel carburetor, it produces a fine amount of power and torque. In fact, this lightweight aluminum block was a bit ahead of its time at GM, but it found a larger purpose in England where it was developed to power everything from Morgans to Range Rovers. Another short-run interesting feature is the Roto Hydramatic automatic transmission. Power steering and a supple ride keep this a nice cruiser. Plus, the rare unibody design (the next year would swatch to body-on-frame) makes the construction tighter. So you can expect a more solid feeling than the usual 1960s classic.

The sale comes complete with the window sticker, service manuals, promotional literature, and a custom placard. It's impressive that this much distinction can also be so affordable. That's why you know you need to hurry for this deal. Call today!!!
