1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Oldsmobile 1971 Cutlass SX Convertible. Yes, this is a true one of 357 SX convertibles Produced in 1971. Basically a 442 in stealth mode, with the same 455 4BBL engine that was used in the 442. Make no mistake, this is a project car for sure. One family owned until I picked it up this year. I purchased it from the daughter of the original owner who special ordered this car from a Northern Virginia dealer in 1971. This car is about as original as any of us could find. It has the original numbers matching block. Although I have not looked for the VIN# on the turbo 400 transmission,I have photographed the plate on the passenger side of the trans with the codes.. TRANSMISSION WAS REBUILT AT APPROXIMATELY 105,000 MILES. I HAVE THE WARRANTY INFO FOR IT. It was rebuilt, not replaced. Motor turns by hand but I have made no attempts to start it. I have fantastic documentation on this rare automobile. This includes the following:
1. Retail Order for a Motor Vehicle
2. Dealer Invoice
3. Car shipping order (Dealer Copy).
4. Oldsmobile Production Code Sheet
5. Oldsmobile Pre-Delivery Service an Adjustment Check Sheet
6. Broadcast sheet
7. 1971 Oldsmobile New Vehicle Warranty Booklet
8. Promissory Note
9. Protecto Plate
11. Dealer Thank You Letter
Options on this car are documented by all of this paperwork and are as follows:
Tinted Glass, Deluxe Belts, Front and rear floor mats (did not survive), Sports Mirrors, Power Disc Brakes, Turbo 400 Transmission, WW Tires (long gone), Clock, Convenience Lamp Group, SX Package (Y79), Power windows, Air Conditioning, Positraction Rear (still has the tag), Power Steering, Super Stock 1 Wheels, AM-FM Stereo (also long gone), and finally, the W26 DUAL GATE CONSOLE!
Car is painted in its correct Sherwood Green color. Original interior still in the car is Sienna! And the original top was done in Sandlewood. This is very possibly the only 1971 Cutlass SX convertible ever ordered in these colors.
The motor turns by hand, but has not been run in a number of years. Oil is dirty, but the coolant in the radiator is full and a bright green! Transmission fluid looks good also (rebuilt at 105k miles). To restore this car, you will need to replace all floors, trunk floor, Rear quarters, trunk lid, convertible top, exhaust, brakes, and the majority of the interior. Doors have some minor rust at the bottom corners. Front Fenders look like NOS replacements and have NO RUST in them at all that I can find! Frame has some scale but looks completely solid. Will need new Core support (rust under battery tray). I tested all power windows and all seem to be working.
I am reluctantly putting this up for sale. I have a clear title for the car, but have no keys. The ignition is unlocked, so the front steering can be turned. I would be happy to answer any questions, or take additional photographs for serious buyers. Vehicle will be sold with no warranty, expressed or implied. The original wheels will go with the car. I had the tires removed from 3 of them as they would not hold air for any length of time. Other rollers will be provided in place of what is shown in any pics on the car now. Mileage is estimated.
