Vehicle Description

For sale in our Detroit Showroom is this 1982 Oldsmobile Cutlass Race Car. This 80s classic has been converted into a newly completed turnkey tube chassis drag car. This Cutlass has everything that you would expect and so much more, and I know it’s hard to believe but has only made 20 passes since completion. The round tube double frame rail chassis was professionally built by Skinny Kid Race Cars and was sandblasted and powder coated. The all steel body except for the fiberglass hood and trunk lids is finished in a brilliant white polyurethane paint that has an incredible shine, and matched with the tube chassis leaves the weight at only 3050 pounds and has been certified (IHRA) to 7.5 seconds. This Cutlass has a new headliner and all interior, trunk, floor, tunnel, and all aluminum has been powder coated to look like new and last for many years at the strip.
