For Sale: 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

For sale in our Chicago showroom is a shimmering 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham. In the car world the term "sleeper" is used to describe a car that is unassuming in appearance but packs plenty of punch under the hood and that could not describe this classic Oldsmobile better. To start off this car is an original "survivor" having only been driven under 41,000 miles since new, and it shows very well. To start with the interior is in amazing condition and the soft velour seats feel like you are sitting in your living room. The door panels, dash pad, steering wheel and carpeting are all preserved originals and in remarkable condition. From the exterior you will notice that this car looks like a grocery getter but once you fire up the ignition this car begins to tell a different story. Underneath that cowl-induction hood is a 1970 Oldsmobile 350 that was rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago and sounds fantastic. This engine was factory rated at 310 Horsepower and features #6 heads, fresh Edelbrock cam and Mallory ignition system. Fire is delivered via a MSD ignition with 8 mm wires and fuel is delivered with a new Edelbrock 650 CFM carb with an electric choke. This car sounds amazing thanks in part to the headers going back to a 3" mandrel bent welded stainless steel exhaust system. Driving is a breeze in this classic cruiser and the 700R4 transmission shifts on point and gets this car up to speed without hesitation and leads back to the 3:73 open gear rear end. New parts on this car include paint finished in the original PPG shade of gold with a little surprise of metal flake that makes this car shimmer in any light. Also all of the weather seals have been replaced along with belts and hoses and the new carburetor. If you are looking for a vintage cruiser with all of the hard work already done now would be your chance.
