This 1969 Oldsmobile Cutlass S Convertible is one of the
sleekest-looking drop-tops of its era. So it's great to find one
that shows off the vintage curves so well with shining red paint.
And this even has the numbers-matching Rocket V8 under the hood.
But what makes this one extra-special is a list of fresh upgrades,
like the A/C and strong CPP suspension, that really make this an
The paint on this car serves it perfectly. A professional
application of red upgrades the attitude and gives it a level of
clearcoat gloss that the factory never could. The sheet metal
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. Plenty of chrome is appropriate on the luxury-oriented
Olds, and it all shines to the same level as this upgraded
paintwork. And we especially enjoy the full-length trim that
highlights the curvy front fenders and the sporty kick-up in the
rear. These themes of brightwork and red are unified perfectly on
the Super Stock III wheels.
The lines of this car could be described as curvy as a Coca-Cola
bottle, and so the white roof just really gives this the ideal soda
pop color combo. And with the flip of a switch, it smoothly powers
down to reveal a similar theme with the parchment interior. This
has an intricate look of a well-done classic, and even details like
the key buzzer and courtesy lights still work! These might have
been classified as the intermediate size, but back then it meant
offering plenty of room for up to five people in this Olds. And
this one really knows how to keep everyone happy with a recent
investment in a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input for
your iPod. And the Vintage Air air conditioning is a new system
that keeps you feeling cool even with the top down. And this
classic also knows plenty about individual comfort. You have front
bucket seats, a center console, classic round gauges, and an
auxiliary readout trio. Plus, there are true cruiser-style features
that you don't see in many other 1960s classics, like a tilt
steering column and cruise control.
You get great originality under the hood with the numbers-matching
motor. People love to see the golden block of the Olds Rocket V8
radiating from within the dark engine bay. And even the air topper
still has the "Keep your GM car all GM" decal on it. More than just
look great, the Rocket 350 is an ideal motor to have. Remember,
Oldsmobile produced their own V8s during this era, and they have a
robust reputation. It fires up readily with a nice tune out of the
newer dual exhaust, and so it's ready to hit the road. And as you
look underneath, you're going to spot fresh suspension upgrades,
like the CPP tubular front A-arms, CPP tubular four-link rear, and
a thick rear sway bar. It really gives you that kind of solid
feeling you want in a classic. And features like power steering, a
three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes w/discs up
front keep this an easy cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a car cover.
This one has the fresh upgrades already installed for what you
really want on a great driver's classic. It makes for a
smooth-looking and smooth-feeling Olds drop-top. Don't miss your
