1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass
Is there some kind of support group for guys who love the Oldsmobile A-bodies too much? Because after you see this wonderful 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, you'll probably agree that Olds got it right with this one. Sporty, elegant, and quick, it's the perfect combination of features for a guy who doesn't need 500 cubic inches and flashy stripes to have a good time in an old car.
Oldsmobile called the color "Bamboo" and it looks understated and elegant, which is just right for Oldsmobile. It also works quite well on the chiseled Oldsmobile's sheetmetal, with the contrasting padded roof accentuating the Cutlass's neo-fastback profile. You're also going to be pleased to see how straight it is underneath, so you don't need to make any excuses for this Cutlass, because it's every bit as nice as it appears in the photos. No stripes, no modified hood, nothing that gets in the way of the original look that is arguably GM's best blend of performance and style of the era. The aforementioned vinyl top looks great and fits snugly with no worries because it isn't hiding any of the usual stuff underneath. There's plenty of chrome acting as jewelry against the Bamboo paint, plus the tightly-knit front grille and matching taillights that make it sparkle.
It definitely looks like a luxury car inside, where dark tan bucket seats add to the upscale atmosphere. The upholstery is in excellent condition, which is thanks to a combination of durable materials and excellent care. The carpets are a little faded but they look original and if that's true, they're in great shape. Factory air is not unusual in these cars, but it sure is nice when you're out cruising or on a long road trip (the system needs to be serviced). An AM/FM/CD stereo with upgraded speakers sounds great. The gauges with their clear black-and-white markings look great, the bright needles are still vivid, and even the woodgraining on the dash is fairly convincing. Open the trunk and you'll find the original mat, a full-sized spare, and jack assembly.
Guys who know Oldsmobiles know that the 350 cubic inch small block V8 is as durable as a block of granite and makes great torque that its siblings over at Chevy and Pontiac can only envy. With a unique sound, it fires easily and offers a slightly lumpy idle that hints of performance to come. It appears to be completely stock, including the 2-barrel carburetor, and aside from a bit of grime from the past 45 years, it looks like a well-maintained machine that has never needed major surgery. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a set of 2.73 gears in the 10-bolt rear, so it just loafs along at highway speeds, making it the ideal car for long road trips. Factory steel wheels with original hubcaps look right on the conservative Olds, and they carry recent 215/70/14 whitewall radials.
These remain some of the best-looking cars of the era and they drive really well. Not a show car, this one is ideal for casual driving and the price is certainly right. Is it any wonder why we love them so much? Call today!
