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
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
