We call this 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass a 442 tribute, but really it's much more. With a 454 big block, full custom A/C interior, and that bold body with expensive 26-inch wheels, this is the most impressive Olds you can gets your hand on right now.
You know from the moment you lay eye on this coupe that it's no ordinary Cutlass. The dual scoops in the hood give it a 442 level of aggressive appearance, but that's not even the first thing that grabbed your attention. This is a full custom creation, from the red fabric roof, to the 26-inch Forgiato Drea three-piece custom wheel and tire package (estimated at $8,000 alone!) But really there is no better classic American car out there to get the custom treatment than the third-generation Cutlass hardtop. With the fastback profile and chrome bumpers that were integrated into the design so well, this is arguably the best design to come from Detroit. Add in a professional application of high gloss red, and this Olds can't help but draw a crowd. Please note that the original rocker trim and wheel opening moldings do come with the sale, but the current setup is definitely distinctive with the acres of shiny red. The appearance could pass for the new culture of "donk" classics, but as we dig deeper, the overall execution tells you this is very thoughtful build and much more.
You understand the full investment into this custom the moment you open the door and see an interior that will make some modern luxury cars jealous. The tan leather seats have been borrowed from a much more modern machine. They've been custom adapted to look like they belonged in this upgraded Olds from day one. There's even custom red stitching to match the bold exterior color. There are plenty of comfort features like the custom center console, power windows, and ice-cold air conditioning. Plus, you have a Pioneer AM/FM/XM/DVD head unit with satellite navigation and Bluetooth connect-ability. The driver gets a three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that are a full set of classic style Auto Meter gauges. There's B&M ratchet shifter in the center console. But as much as those features tell you about this car's performance, the aggressive feature you'll enjoy the most is the devilish red glow of the interior at night.
Sure the air grabbed has the proper Olds 442 markings, but we bet you won't be disappointed to find out that underneath is a performance-built 454 Chevy big block. Not only does the big V8 fill the engine bay, but also it's been enhanced with a GM LS7 head/roller rocker hi-performance 6272990, performance intake, Holley four-barrel carburetor, and long tube headers that feed a thundering Flowmaster dual exhaust. This is mated to a stout TH350 three-speed automatic that feeds a 10-bolt rear end. More than just a pure power package, you get comfortable features like power steering and Wilwood six-piston front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors. And to make sure the Olds can handle its extra height with skill, there are thick sway bars front and rear, as well as QA1 coilovers on all four corners.
You know it would cost you far more to build this custom Olds, and while that takes time, this deal is ready to hit the streets today. That kind of appeal moves fast around here, so hurry up and call today!
