1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass

General Information

Up for sale is my Triple Black 1972 Cutlass Supreme Convertible. Car was originally purchased at Jack Schmidt Oldsmobilein Columbus, hio, nd I purchased it in 1998 from the original owner (a work associate). When I purchased it, t only had approximately56,000 miles, ndnow has only 61,300 miles. Basic reason for selling it is we rarely drive or show it any more, ndwe're concerned that it will just get ruined fromsitting in storage. When we did show the car, t was a consistent trophy winner at local car shows, ndalways placed first or second at ourregionalOldsmobile show. In addition, t wasa past Best of Showwinner in the Oldsmobile category at the annual prestigious Arthritis Foundation Classic Car Show in Dublin, hio.Included with the car is the original proteco-plate, wners manual, onsumer information, mission controls, nd warranty booklets, ealers brochures, ervicemanual, riginal floor mats, never used trunk liner rubber mat (I like thefelt one better), nd other miscellaneous items of Oldsmobile memorabilia. Also have the original window sticker. It is somewhat faded, ut I had it laminated to preserve it.

Overall Condition

All numbers match,the car runs great and the transmission shifts smoothly. I would not hesitate to drive this car anywhere.A few weeks ago we did bring the car home and got caught in a traffic jam and could not move much for about 45 minutes. The car idled like a new car, nd showed no signs whatsoever of overheating. The engine bay is well detailed, s is the undercarriage. For a 43 year old car, he interior is very well preserved, nd the dash area is exceptional. Convertible top is in excellent shape andgoes up and down perfectly. A/C blows ice cold. Tires and wheels are in great shape. Trunk compartment is in outstanding condition. Car was repainted about five years ago, ndseveral rusty areas were repaired with new metal.Thepaintshop did a good job with the paint,but I'm very picky, nd I'd say it wasn'ta perfect job.

To Be Perfect

I've maintained this car very well over theyears, nd have tried to keep it as original as possible, nd have putnumerous new parts on the car.But it is 43 years old, nd it is not a perfect car.Nor do I portray it to be.Here's the itemsthat I know of that thenew owner might want to take a look at,atsome point in time. Most are just minor annoyances:Minor paint bubbles around right rear wheel well molding, ome fraying in the seams on the back of drivers seat, eeds a new drivers side mirror (mirror is functional, ut remote cable is broken), nbsp;could use some wet sanding on the very bottom of the rear panels(you have to lay on your back and look up to see the few dull areas), peedometer works fine, ut the cable sometimes makes a noise, nd the windshield washer does not work.Also, he original am/fm radio does come on andplay, ut not that wellanymore.Even at that, he car scored 198 out of 200 hundred possible points atlast years regional all Oldsmobile Show.

Conclusion

I've honestly described the car, utif you're looking for a perfect car, his is not the car for you, o please don't bother. But if you're looking for a real head turner, hat's great for cruising with the top down, nd for taking to local and regional car shows, ou might want to consider this one.Of course, here is no warrantyof any type with the car, nd the car will not be released until your cashiers check or wire transfer has cleared my bank, ith full payment expected within ten days of the auction end. And most certainly, ash is accepted. I'd also like a $500 good faith deposit within 48 hours of the auction end.Shipping is the buyers responsibility, nd while I don't know anything about shipping, 'll be glad to help in any way I can. I'll be glad to answer any questions through email.Good luck, nd thanks for 'kicking the tires' on my Oldsmobile.
