1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
There's just something great about the 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme convertible. They have one of the best designs of the era from a GM division that provided both speed and luxury. So it's great to find one so complete and ready to go. Bamboo is a great color for a premium '70s cruiser. The sheetmetal underneath is quite solid and straight. All of this allows you to enjoy the unique look that the Cutlass has among its GM corporate cousins. And the details highlight the attraction further. For example, the pinstripes help showcase the sporty profile. Plenty of chrome is appropriate on the luxury-oriented Olds, and you get in all the right places like the full-length lower trim and running down the center of the hood. Plus, no one integrated their bumpers better into their design than Oldsmobile A-bodies. There's even extra shine from new wheels (but the color-matched iconic Super Stock wheels also come with the sale.) The gold interior makes for a nice color combo against the bamboo, and it's this kind of color coordination you want in a car that will be open to the world. These might have been classified as the intermediate size, but back then that meant offering plenty of room for up to six people in this Olds. And anytime you want individual comfort, the folding armrest gives the front bench a bucket level of comfort. Oldsmobiles were about offering the luxurious extras, and this one carries that tradition perfectly. That's why you get the burled walnut dash appliquÃƒÂ©s and the three pod-style stainless steel gauge faces. You can tell there was a lot of thought that went into make sure this is a good cruiser today. It's the details such as a proper boot cover for when the top is down, and upgrading the stereo to an AM/FM/CD player for the best in modern tunes. Oldsmobile people know that a Rocket 350 cubic-inch motor is something very special. It looks great with its proper gold presentation, and it even carries the cool "Keep your GM car all GM" decal on the Rocket air topper. Olds manufactured their own V8 engines during this era, and they have proven to be even more sturdy than the trusty Chevy 350. It has a distinctive sound from the dual exhaust Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a sophisticated rumble that's perfect for this ragtop's luxury/muscle dual nature. In fact, this one is a definite cruiser thanks to a recent rebuild of the three-speed automatic transmission around 200 miles ago. Add in power steering and power brakes, and you've just found a great weekend driver. This is a two-owner convertible that even comes with receipts dating back through half of this car's lifetime. This is a classic that has been appreciated, and now it's time for someone to write the next chapter. Will it be you?
