1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass Coupe
The word Cutlass is defined as a short curvy one-edged sword that
was used by sailors. The Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was the
bestselling car in Olds history. With its clean lines and numerous
model offerings, it is clear to see why.
For consignment, a 1971 2 door hardtop in very nice condition. A
mere 3 owners, (first two mother and son), and a consignor stated
33,412 original miles have been clocked on this car, and it looks
the part. Nice paint, good chrome, and clean interior this car has
been pampered, and certainly garaged throughout its life. Plenty of
paperwork including the original order from shipping invoice, and
copious maintenance records will come with this car.
Straight steel side panels, and trunk and hood with consistent gaps
and covered in Cameo White respray, there are very few faults to be
noted here. Certainly not perfect, but amazingly preserved for a 48
year old car. A green vinyl top covers the passenger compartment
and is in good condition being original to the car. Up front a
split grille is flanked by dual headlights on either side, and a
large chrome bumper below. All is nice and tight and in good
alignment with no rust or fading on chrome. The green vinyl top
gently lowers itself toward the rear trunk deck. Bringing up the
curved to a point rear, is a wrap-around bumper that has the
taillights embedded within it. On all 4 corners are Oldsmobile
wheel coverings with raised white lettered Futura rubber.
Opening one of the doors we are greeted by very nice textured green
vinyl with embossed panels and a small amount of wood applique
accenting and thin nice chrome accents, window cranks, and vinyl
wood grain panels. A split back front bench has a low back feel to
it and has a major crack in the seam of the driver's seat. The rear
is all vinyl and looking sharp. A look forward to the dash and a
very clean one indeed, with green padded vinyl and curved metal to
frame a wood grain instrument panel in front of the green steering
wheel. Factory air has been installed, and an AM radio is in its
original spot in the dash. Slightly faded green carpeting is on the
floors and a green headliner looks good and tight, and it appears
as though original lighting has been outfitted with LED lights.
The original 350ci V8 with a single 2-barrel carburetor atop, and a
TH350 3-speed automatic behind, sits in a nicely detailed engine
bay. Not restored, but still presenting beautifully with its gold
painted block and valve coverings, and shiny supple hoses and air
cleaner covering. On the back is a 10-bolt 2.73 rear axle.
Nice and straight with some undercoating and a bit of surface rust
on the axle and suspension parts, but the frame is strong and
sturdy. Independent coil springs for the front and a 4 link with
coil springs is on back. Power drum brakes grace all 4 corners.
She fires right up and runs like a champ on the test track. Save
for the crack in the driver's seat vinyl, everything else is
looking very nice. Smooth shifting and good solid quick stop
braking is the norm for this car.
An extremely nice example from the year 1971. Cared for and
garaged, very clean car with 33,412 miles that the consignor states
are original. Interesting green color inside and Cameo White for
the exterior, with all surfaces in very nice condition. A
well-preserved example: 3 owner car, 2 of which were mother and
son. Our consignor now will sadly part with his baby!
