For Sale: 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible is a well-done triple-black drop-top. You see the quality in the sleek paint, stylishly vintage bucket seat interior, and big 455 V8 under the hood that all make for a terrific cruiser.


Black paint needs a solid canvas to look great. So the sheet metal underneath is quite solid and straight, with uniform gaps and doors that you can close with authority. So this upgraded black has the premium luster and overall presentation of a grand piano. In fact, it's likely just a professional detail away from being the kind of car that they use for advertisements. Plenty of chrome is appropriate on the luxury-oriented Olds, and it all shines with the kind of quality that makes sure it lives up to the same high standards set by the finish. And getting the big bumpers looking great is essential here because Oldsmobile was a true master during this era at integrating the bumpers into the overall design. A crisp/clean, full-length trim, and color-matched Super Stock wheels are all part of a detailed style that gives this the look of an upper-class classic.


With the touch of a button, the power folding top folds back to reveal the full black interior. So the paint, roof, and interior give this Olds a very desirable triple-black upgrade. This is a well-done package that has the right vintage style. You see it in the intricate pattern of the upholstery, smooth wood-like trim, and working courtesy lights. But there's also just the right hint of an upgraded cruiser. For example, you have the classic AM/FM radio in the dash, but there's a CD changer controller hidden in the ashtray. And the amplifier in the trunk makes sure that your driving music is heard nice and clear even when the top is down. And you have a great driver-oriented setup with front bucket seats, a center console in-between, a full round gauge package, and Oldsmobile's four-spoke sports steering wheel.


Under the hood is one of the best features of this already impressive drop-top. We all love the 455 cubic-inch V8, which was Oldsmobile's monster motor that found a home in its best offerings like the Toronado and the 442. And the big V8 is dressed in bright blue just to make sure everyone notices. It inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority out of the rumbling dual exhaust. And because Olds was used to offering the large horsepower and torque that the Rocket 455 produced, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission can handle it with confidence. You even have a 12-bolt rear end, boxed rear trailing arms, and a thick rear sway bar. But more than just a big power machine, this Cutlass Supreme still serves its dual luxury and performance nature well. After all, features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs are the perfect recipe for an all-day cruise on your favorite roads.


A great-looking turn-key classic convertible is always appealing. And with the days getting longer, you know it will be gone from our showroom soon. Call today!!!
