The Chevrolet Chevelle, Pontiac’s Lemans/GTO, Buick’s Skylark, and Oldsmobile’s Cutlass, all offered comfort, style, luxury, and performance depending on your choices.
Oldsmobiles offering of the Cutlass took the direction of the Gentleman’s Musclecar with its upscale appointments, without sacrificing performance.
The Cutlass Convertible here in no exception as, like most all of the classic cars of the past, has had some very nice, well placed upgrades to enhance the driving pleasure and experience.
Case-in-point here, this particular Cutlass has been treated to a more eye catching if not modern paint scheme, an updated cloth convertible top, a more robust exhaust system, and vintage hot rod style wheels and tires, to name a few.
The pleasure in this Olds is the drive! Smooth, no rattles, easy steering and brakes, quiet suspension, deep black interior, all with its original numbers matching engine, and upgraded transmission.
Don’t gloss over the original undercarriage of this fine classic, the frame, the floor pans, the rockers, and the suspension appear as clean, and undamaged as you will ever find.
Take note of the aggressive stance, coupled with the well chosen wheels and tires, top it all off with a paint job that just screams performance, and you have a clean, tight, excellent driving car that most anyone will certainly appreciate. This Olds looks amazing sitting in the garage, causing around, or, taking a trophy at the car shows! Very nice classic Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible!
