1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Here's a rare treat served up with all the right investments. This 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was optioned with the rare 455ci horsepower V8. And as you look over this whole coupe, you'll see than not only has this original motor been rebuilt, but they've also restored the entire car. Yet, it still keeps all the right original charm. So what you have is a powerful piece of history that you will love to show off everywhere. The Cutlass Supreme coupe of this era was already a car of interesting distinction. It keeps the sporty hardtop silhouette, but it has a tradition roofline to give it a more mature presentation. And the factory-correct Viking Blue really brings out this regal personality. Of course it also helps that there has been a solid investment in a quality respray that really lets the modern clearcoat highlight all of the Cutlass Supreme's unique curves. And averaging just barely over 1,000 miles annually means the sheetmetal has been treated with the right care, too. You'll love all the details on this coupe with its full-length white pinstriping and the iconic Super Stock wheels. And don't forget that 1972 was the last year before federal bumper regulations, so those shiny chrome kings fit snug to the body as they look like an integral part of the design. We love it when the exterior pinstripe is a preview of the interior color. This is the original white interior according to the consignor, and it really does show that this is a low-mileage and well-maintained coupe (even the spare in the trunk appears to be original and unused!) These might have been classified as the intermediate size, but back then that meant offering plenty of room in the back seat to carry family and friends. But regardless of how many people are in the car, you'll always be in individual comfort thanks to bucket seats up front and a center console. Other luxury items like the burled walnut dash appliquÃƒÂ©s and the triple-pod stainless steel gauge faces were all standard up-market Cutlass Supreme fare. And while the original AM radio is still on display, if you look below the dash, you'll see that they cleanly installed an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and a USB connection. That way you have a vintage atmosphere but modern music. And speaking of atmosphere, the air conditioning has been upgraded to modern R134a to keep everyone cool for the long haul. Even with all these great features, your favorite will undoubtedly under the hood. We all love the Olds 455 cubic-inch V8, which was a monster motor that found a home in its best offerings like the 442. So not only does this special coupe have still have its original numbers-matching 455 V8, but also it was rebuilt about 13k miles ago to ensure it continues to be a strong powerhouse. You can tell there was a ton invested in keeping it looking right with everything from the bright blue on the block to the "Keep your GM car all GM" decal on the Rocket air topper. It inhales deeply through a correct Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority out of the rumbling dual exhaust. And because Olds was used to offering the large horsepower and torque that the Rocket 455 produced, the three-speed automatic transmission can handle it with ease. But more than just a big power machine, this Cutlass Supreme still serves its dual luxury and performance nature well. After all, features like the power steering, front disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear are the perfect recipe for an all-day cruise on your favorite roads. An important car like this comes with a ton of paperwork. It includes the owner's manual, service manual, build receipts, maintenance records, and documentation for the rebuilt motor. This Olds is rare, powerful, and beautiful, so if you're ready to take home some more awards, call today!
